Normal People- Plot

The show’s story features the lives of Marianne and Connell and their complicated relationship. Both of them went to the same school and college. On the one hand, Marianne resides in a non-supportive and resentful family, which has a dire effect on her character.

She was considered odd in the school but did not care about it and was subjected to bullying. On the other hand, Connell is a high-achieving athletic student who was very famous in his school and did not care about Marianne while he was there. He lived with his single widowed mother, who used to work as a cleaner at Denise.

The show progresses by showing their complicated relationship and how it became a happy and lovable one, but still, the complexities were there. The show is not about a happy relationship or a doomed romance, but the story lies in the middle.

Normal People- Ratings
