Conversations with Friends

Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney Book Summary

“[A] cult-hit . . . [a] sharply realistic comedy of adultery and friendship.”—Entertainment Weekly
 
SALLY ROONEY NAMED TO THE 2019 TIME 100 NEXT LIST • WINNER OF THE SUNDAY TIMES (UK) YOUNG WRITER OF THE YEAR AWARD • ONE OF BUZZFEED’S BEST BOOKS OF THE DECADE • NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY VOGUE AND SLATE AND ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY BUZZFEED AND ELLE

Frances is a coolheaded and darkly observant young woman, vaguely pursuing a career in writing while studying in Dublin. Her best friend is the beautiful and endlessly self-possessed Bobbi. At a local poetry performance one night, they meet a well-known photographer, and as the girls are then gradually drawn into her world, Frances is reluctantly impressed by the older woman’s sophisticated home and handsome husband, Nick. But however amusing Frances and Nick’s flirtation seems at first, it begins to give way to a strange—and then painful—intimacy.

Written with gemlike precision and marked by a sly sense of humor, Conversations with Friends is wonderfully alive to the pleasures and dangers of youth, and the messy edges of female friendship.

SHORTLISTED FOR THE INTERNATIONAL DUBLIN LITERARY AWARD

“Sharp, funny, thought-provoking . . . a really great portrait of two young women as they’re figuring out how to be adults.”—Celeste Ng, “Late Night with Seth Meyers Podcast”

“The dialogue is superb, as are the insights about communicating in the age of electronic devices. Rooney has a magical ability to write scenes of such verisimilitude that even when little happens they’re suspenseful.”—Curtis Sittenfeld, The Week

“Rooney has the gift of imbuing everyday life with a sense of high stakes . . . a novel of delicious frictions.”New York

“A writer of rare confidence, with a lucid, exacting style . . . One wonderful aspect of Rooney’s consistently wonderful novel is the fierce clarity with which she examines the self-delusion that so often festers alongside presumed self-knowledge. . . . But Rooney’s natural power is as a psychological portraitist. She is acute and sophisticated about the workings of innocence; the protagonist of this novel about growing up has no idea just how much of it she has left to do.”—Alexandra Schwartz, The New Yorker

“This book. This book. I read it in one day. I hear I’m not alone.”—Sarah Jessica Parker (Instagram)

I had to finish reading this book in a few days. The narrative voice was so captivating. The book is honest.

- Great read5 star

Best book I’ve read in a long time. I still think about these characters.

- Couldn’t have loved this book more.5 star

Amazing characters, I got completely lost in it which almost never happens to me. One of the best books I’ve ever read.

- Awful book1 star

That was a book?! This seemed just like nonsense bs the entire read. Do not waste your time or money on this. I want a refund so terrible and a bad ending. The characters were so dull, and poorly written!! The author should be ashamed of this pathetic excuse for a book!!

- Awesome Book5 star

I had not read a book in a few months. I found this book from an email I received from Apple Books. It was actually her second book “Normal PeopIe.” I researched it and found out this was her first book which I wanted to read first. What an awesome book. I loved it from cover to ending. Definitely pick it up!

- Smart and enjoyable5 star

A very fun and easy-to-read book that has a philosophical twist to it.

- Conversations with Friends5 star

Wow. What a great ending! I can’t believe I will not hear any more about these people. Frances and Bobbi had such distinctive personalities. The love interest was an actor, which is a little hard to believe and I thought did not further the plot. That was the only “fault” I found with the story.
