Reviews
This is a much better book than her first novel. I listened to it as an audio book & that might have made a difference. She has a gift for showing the thoughts and feelings of the 2 protagonists and makes the reader care what happens to them - something I didn't find in her other novel, 'Conversations with Friends'.

A lasting friendship between Marianne & Connell from school through university to adulthood. Marianne lives in the "big house" Connell's mother cleans there employed by Marianne's. It's all about friendship, love, class, divisions, fitting in. Does it matter, do you/ can you reinvent yourself. At school Marianne doesn't fit in, at uni Connell feels he doesn't fit. Marianne has a darkness in her background from the unknown deceased father, the violence from her brother and hardness from her hardly mentioned mother. She accepts all the abuse feeling she is unworthy of love, can she ever be happy is the question she asks herself in the final pages. Is there anything she can feel good about? This won't be for everyone but I enjoyed it, For me a thought provoking read, what is that makes people "normal". "all these years they have been like two little plants sharing the same plot of soil, growing around one another, contorting to make room, taking certain unlikely positions"
