A review by aimss99
Beautiful World, Where Are You, by Sally Rooney

emotional reflective medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? No


I turned down more corners of pages and underlined more quotes than I have ever done.
Rooney encapsulates what it is to be lost and what it is to love and how we are all just human beings looking for the light. 
I felt this book drives at the heart of what it is to be human, to be in your late twenties, to be trying to work with a world that won’t work with you. 
Truly astounding 

I also enjoyed reflecting on the characters growth. 

A favourite quote: 
Life is more changeable than I thought … it’s not just one thing or another, it doesn’t get fixed into a groove called personality and run along that way until the end.
