Beschreibung

'Beautiful World, Where Are You is Rooney's best novel.' THE TIMES

The *new* novel from the internationally bestselling author of Normal People.

Alice, a novelist, meets Felix, who works in a warehouse, and asks him if he'd like to travel to Rome with her. In Dublin, her best friend Eileen is getting over a break-up and slips back into flirting with Simon, a man she has known since childhood.

Alice, Felix, Eileen and Simon are still young - but life is catching up with them. They desire each other, they delude each other, they get together, they break apart. They worry about sex and friendship and the world they live in. Are they standing in the last lighted room before the darkness, bearing witness to something? Will they find a way to believe in a beautiful world?

'A tour de force. The dialogue never falters, and the prose burns up the page.'
GUARDIAN

'Rooney's strongest writing thus far . . . There is a touching honesty and truthfulness in these pages, along with a quiet brilliance.'
FINANCIAL TIMES

'The book moved me to tears more than once . . . Rooney's best novel.'
THE TIMES

'Rooney's best novel yet. Funny and smart, full of sex and love and people doing their best to connect.'
Brandon Taylor, NEW YORK TIMES

'Written with immense skill and illuminated by an endlessly incisive intelligence.'
IRISH TIMES

'Beautiful World, Where Are You is not just worth reading. It's worth thinking about.'
IRISH INDEPENDENT

'Brilliantly done: gripping, steamy, unbearably sad.'
TELEGRAPH

Amazing read

As always rooney brings philosophical questions to an easy read book that explores 2 relationships. I didn't want to put the book down and I'm sad it's over, can't wait for her next book!

Ein sehr gutes neues Buch von Sally Rooney – wer sich gern mit zwischenmenschlichen Beziehungen auseinandersetzt wird hier voll auf seine Kosten kommen. Der Stil ist typisch für die Autorin; wenn man sich an die fehlenden Anführungszeichen gewöhnt hat, liest es sich gut weg. Das Buch ist definitiv am Puls der Zeit und behandelt viele Themen, die auch mich im Moment bewegen. Selbst die Pandemie findet Erwähnung; wenn auch, wie ich finde, etwas ungelenk. Man hat jedoch das Gefühl, dass Rooney sich inzwischen sehr darüber im Klaren ist, was Leser:innen von ihr erwarten und diese Erwartungen bewusst versucht zu bedienen. Ihre früheren Bücher wirkten roher und haben mich mehr zum Nachdenken angeregt, hier wirkt es teils wie "prêt-à-penser".

to say that my, as well as probably everyone elses, expectations for this book were extremely high would be and understatement. basically, i was terrified that this book wouldn’t be as good as i’d imagined it to be, which would have been easy to be honest, since the bar for sally rooney’s books i set is very high already anyway.... to say that my, as well as probably everyone elses, expectations for this book were extremely high would be and understatement. basically, i was terrified that this book wouldn’t be as good as i’d imagined it to be, which would have been easy to be honest, since the bar for sally rooney’s books i set is very high already anyway. needless to say im ECSTATIC that this book managed to not only up live to the expectations i have crafted in my head for months, years (?), but somehow even managed to exceed them. beautiful world, where are you? is her best work in my opinion. i enjoyed everything about it. i enjoyed the strong female friendship between alice and eileen, i adored the descriptions of the scenery, the insane detailing, the prose, the dialogues, the text messages, the wit. bwway did the perfect job of describing human relationships, whether they are platonic, sexual or romantic, while at the same time the world is, quite frankly, going to shit, whether thats because of climate change, a global pandemic or poverty. i enjoyed every second i spent with this book, forcing myself to put it away every now and then so i’d get to spend more time with it. thank you sally rooney for another masterpiece which i will find myself thinking about for quite literally the rest of my days lol
