it was amazing


This novel just straight out knocked my socks off!

I was immediately captured by Connell and Marianne and their story of love and growing up, and was mesmerized by their gloriously awkward and endearing relationship. The complexities of their narrative, and the more meta discussions about purpose and mental health and abuse were just spot on.

Brilliantly written, and while it wasn’t the ending I wanted to see it was the perfect one for these two complex and infinitely human people. I can’t recommend this highly enough and can not believe this didn’t make the Man Booker Prize shortlist!!
