Notes:
It's a deeply political novel, just as it's also a novel about love and about how difficult it is to speak and how difficult it is to change. Connell and Marianne grow up in the same small town in rural Ireland. The similarities end there; they are from very different worlds. When they both earn places at Trinity College in Dublin, a connection that has grown between them lasts long into the following years. This is an exquisite love story about how a person can change another person's life - a simple yet profound realisation that unfolds beautifully over the course of the novel. It tells us how difficult it is to talk about how we feel and it tells us - blazingly - about cycles of domination, legitimacy and privilege. Alternating menace with overwhelming tenderness, Sally Rooney's second novel breathes fiction with new life.

A love story, but about so much more. I didn't feel it quite lived up to the hype, but there was enough to it that kept me reading to the end. As previously mentioned by other reviewers, a good book for reading groups.
