It’s been a while since I’ve read or seen something that I genuinely can’t stop thinking about.
I finished watching Normal People (the TV show) last week and on the surface, it was a decent show with some strange parts. But somewhere beneath that, it must have seriously muddled up my thoughts or emotions or both because now I’m onto the book. I’m sort of hoping for an epiphany as I read because so far I can only think in clichés: “it’s because I’m graduating soon”, “we’re getting older”, “it has a very nostalgic atmosphere”.
I think there’s more than that to be said about the story and why it’s so impactful… the whole experience of finding out is pretty exciting.
