Before going into this novel I heard so many discouraging things, which story of my life, made me hesitant to read it. Then I did and absolutely loved it. Granted, I am not a fan of Rooney’s writing structure; however, she worked magic on me and I was absolutely gripped by Marianne and Connell’s relationship. But in full transparency I understood their relationship, well them as characters, because I’ve very much walked in their shoes regarding a toxic relationship like theirs.
