A quiet book, well written and hard to put down. I read it in less than a day and the characters will stay with me for a long time.
Connell and Marianne both grow up in different classes in a working class Irish town. Both brilliant students, they connect in an on again and off again relationship during high school through young adulthood. There are themes of loneliness, mental illness, submissiveness, politics and social angst.
I loved it. Quiet, yet bold. Perceptive, and keen.
Five stars Do it.
