One of the most critically anticipated novels of the year — heck, of the past few years — comes out Tuesday, and reviewers are already weighing in.

Sally Rooney’s Beautiful World, Where Are You is the story of Alice and Eileen, who are best friends, and their relationships with men.

Both women are writers, though with very disparate levels of financial and public success, a fact that two recent reviews can’t help but comment frequently on as being a reflection of Rooney.

The reviewers — Anne Enright for the Guardian and John Williams for the New York Times — agree that there’s no denying the Millennial-ness of Beautiful World, Where Are You, but diverge in other opinions of the novel.

Check out their thoughts now and be the judge yourself next week!
