The television adaptation of Sally Rooney’s Normal People has debuted on RTE – and it looks like the show has impressed both fans of the book and newcomers alike.
Viewers took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the first two episodes, as protagonists Connell and Marianne begin their love affair in a small town in Sligo.
Here’s what fans think so far…

#NormalPeople is like your watching real life but the people are amazing at ignoring the cameras

I expected a lot from #NormalPeople and so far, 6 eps in, it has totally delivered but I was not expecting it to evoke such homesickness for Dublin. Trinity, Dublin buses, old man pubs, even the Centra made me pine for home. Dublin, I miss you. I’ll see you soon 💙
