    You already know that Normal People wasn’t for me, but recently so many people have been raving about it, though the reviews are mixed. I recently finished Funny Weather by Olivia Laing, and there’s a section of the collection that includes book reviews, one of which was for Normal People. Reading that helped me better understand the intention behind the novel, and has further persuaded me to perhaps give Normal People another chance. If you’re interested, Laing’s book review for Normal People is available online! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

      Oh I will have to check that out, thanks! I’d say, even if you don’t give the book another chance, definitely watch the TV adaptation. The leads’ performances are so nuanced, and perfectly portray what I think Rooney was attempting with her book. The toughts and words unspoken have so much significance. I thought it was stunning!
