A story keeping you alert to the end. Unusual good dialogue. So many writers fails there! I loved that it stuck to one singular theme, without to much surroundings, descriptions or flashing topics semi-relevant to the core of the story.
Sally Rooney has already won a few prizes and you can see why - she is going to be huge! This book is funny, smart and fresh. She really understands what it means to be a woman in her 20s, but this book would appeal to anyone who wants to understand human nature and modern life. It's about 21 year old Frances, who becomes embroiled out of her depth in an affair with a handsome older actor. But more than that, it's about the power of female friendship and how resilient we all are deep down. Must read!

I bought this as 'Single, Carefree Mellow' was intelligent and funny and this book appeared under the 'customers also bought' section in the recommendations. This book is neither. The heroine is a 21 year old virgin who has an affair with a man who is tall, wealthy (but is a marxist), devastatingly handsome, saintly and loves babies! His wife is conveniently a bitch (not that he would think of her like that) who had had several affairs (he hasn't had any of course) and who works away from home.
I gave up at that point as by continuing I might regurgitate breakfast. I really hope this is supposed to be satire, but suspect not.
