  • Great writing!

    Sally Rooney is really good at creating characters and conversations that you can really relate to. And of making you feel uncomfortable, which I think can be good in a novel. This story was different than what I have been reading lately, which I enjoyed - but I found it hard to really like the main characters, I thought they were all not great people - but I still wanted to know how everything turns out.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Conversations Without Character

    I enjoyed the first half of this book quite a bit. Rooney is a gifted writer. Many have complained about the lack of quotations, which I enjoyed. This gave the novel a lovely stream-of-consciouness element which kept me engaged structurally. The story itself was pedantic with unlimited self-absorption by ill-defined and largely uninteresting characters. I never felt invested in any of them and sort of hoped/expected someone might kill themselves or perhaps commit a murder/suicide. I would have enjoyed this since by the end of the novel, I was sick of all of them. Overall, this is a technically appealing first novel that would benefit from better character and atmospheric development in order to really shine.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • 9/10

    The ending to this book felt very transcending. It felt as if tjings were slowly fading away although in reality events sequenced each other as they aways naturally do. The ending def had more of a satisfactory ending though clmpared to normal people. But i think i prefer normal peoples ending as far as story goes, but i prefer how this ending made me feel. Both dream and reality

    Thanks for your feedback!
