    Description

    Frances is a 21-year-old college student in Dublin; she performs at spoken word events with her best friend and ex-lover, Bobbi. When they are profiled by journalist Melissa, they enter an orbit of beautiful houses and raucous dinner parties. Initially unimpressed, Frances begins an affair with Nick, Melissa's husband, which gives way to an unexpected intimacy. Desperate to reconcile her desires and vulnerabilities of her body, Frances's intellectual certainties begin to yield to something new: a disorienting way of living from moment to moment.

    "Forensically smart and pin-sharp witty, this is a book to cherish and a writer to fall in love with." (Thomas Morris, author of We Don't Know What We're Doing)

    Well written but disappointing book

    I had high hopes for this book. The best I can say is that it is a well written story about nothing. Characters were narcissistic and not particularly interesting.

    Unputdownable!

    Intelligent.
    Sparkling, every line.
    Beautiful!
    Not one word too many, just the right doses for each thought and dialogue.
    Great job Mrs. Roony!
    Don't you ever stop telling stories!

    Like a Japanese restaurant without sushi.

    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.

    ok. but what's the big deal?

    it is an ok story, but nothing special. The writer has generated some hype but the book is overvalued.

    feminist, sharp

    i feel every man should read this novel. Rooney opens up an inner world alien to many men.

    Don't know what the hype is all about

    Although I found some of the dialogues quite interesting, the characters are incredibly hard to identify with. They're annoyingly self-centred.

    amazing book

    This book profoundly affected me, and I felt truly sad when it was finished. Will certainly enjoy it again.

    It's impossible to feel for the main character

    It's alright, poetically written, but the main character is impossible to develop sympathy for. There is too much self importantness. Could not finish because I did not want her to succeed, made me feel uncomfortable about humanity.

    I feel cheated by the system

    I heard about the book on the New Yorker Podcast. It was an interview woth the author: a high performing young woman. I did not make an extensive research about her, but it seemed to me that this book has a very strong autobiographical trait.
    The story is not very interessting and I find it somewhat dully written. A bisexual, very intelligent, although quite insecure and disturbed tweenaged girl who has an affair with a married, insecure but handsome man. She falls in love with him, but alienates her ex and only friend. And in the process discovers who she really is.
    Beh....
