One of my favorite books from last summer was Normal People by Irish author Sally Rooney. I loved it – a coming of age story following two people weaving in and out of their lives, trying to figure out who they are together and apart. It was a memorable book and I devoured in days. So when the book was produced as a TV series on Hulu, I knew that I had to watch it. Sure enough, over the weekend, I watched all 12 episodes. It is beautifully put together with raw, real, racy and honest emotions. I sobbed at the end of it…..wanting more of the complicated, messy relationship and magnetic pull of the characters.
Read articles on the show here here and here. Jump on board and watch it — I know you will all love it. And then call me so we can discuss it. Heart wrenching, addictive, dramatic, and oh so real. A great show to watch in quarantine — not too sad, violent, or scary.
