This is, to put it kindly, a better written reversed Twilight. Rich self-loathing awkward girl, well-adjusted but not deep down boy of the "wrong" sort. Insipid on again and off again relationship. Something something masochism. Marianne's character was really hard to get behind and Connell is only slightly better. The author also goes into painstaking detail about exactly how Connell sighs or grunts or gets up or walks or shoves his hands in his pockets and other mundane things other characters do. It's so pointless. Great job by the reader though, it's the only reason I finished the book.

The story is only so-so, took a while to get into. The narration however, was phenomenal! absolutely loved it!
