Beautiful World, Where Are You Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The new novel from the author of Normal People.
Alice, a novelist, meets Felix, who works in a distribution warehouse and asks him if he'd like to travel to Rome with her. In Dublin, her best friend, Eileen, is getting over a break-up and slips back into flirting with Simon, a man she has known since childhood.
Alice, Felix, Eileen and Simon are still young - but life is catching up with them. They desire each other; they delude each other; they get together; they break apart. They have sex; they worry about sex; they worry about their friendships and the world they live in. Are they standing in the last lighted room before the darkness, bearing witness to something? Will they find a way to believe in a beautiful world?

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The first half of the book was ‘scatty’ - characterisations very mixed up and hard to discern.
Eventually the four main characters evolved, but as a reader my feelings about each constantly changed. As they changed? I don’t know.
Sadly Sally, I can’t recommend your new book.
About two thirds of the way into the book I became so absorbed in what Sally Rooney was saying that I didn’t even pick up the phone when it rang

Rooney has a penchant for writing pretentious and self-obsessed, but this book takes that to another (painful) level. I will admit it was a real grind for me to finish, but I just about managed it. I just assume it is trendy to say she’s brilliant, to take pictures of the book for the gram and to show you’re current and on the pulse- but it’s a tedious, meandering novel with not even a sliver of a saving grace.
