This book is an intimate look at the relationship between a young man and woman over the course of several years. It has the heart wrenching emotion of Love Story or The Unbearable Lightness of Being. Connell and Marianne grow, change, struggle, and love each other while orbiting in and out of each other’s hearts. It is at times painful to watch them struggle to figure out who they should be as a person and who they should be with each other.
The bonus is that the miniseries is very close to the book and is fun to watch.
