It was funny and clever and a great story, but there was too much sex in it for me.

Read this while visiting relatives in Canada when I should have been reading homework. This was my first Marian Keyes and I was pleased that I didn't figure out the entire plot right away. Not as good as Jennifer Weiner but better than a lot of the other stuff out there.

Started reading Marian Keyes when I returned from Ireland in the summer of 2004. I bought a book of short stories from Irish writers, and Marian Keyes was one of them. I went to see which writers we had at our library, and I found Marian Keyes had several. I tried to read them in order and ended up liking them -- funny, character development -- that I bought a few that I've read and reread, including this one. The women are easy to relate to and the men are minor Prince Charmings.

The second book I read by her, and I'm still not sure whether I like her style or not. I think I do afterwards, but while reading her books, I find them heavy and depressing. The Irishness is charming at times and annoying at others. it probably doesn't help that I know enough people who talk rural Irish. I did enjoy the storyline and the cast of characters felt real. As with her other book I read, the way the characters tie in together made the book for me.

The first ten pages are a little bit boring, but it gets better and more interesting. I found the characters cute and realistic, and I could relate to the whole magazine office thing, since I'm working at a newspaper and I know about the pressure. It's a long novel but it didn't seem long to me. A light, enjoyable read for a Sunday afternoon.

I’d love to know what it is about Marian Keyes that gets people so worked up. I mean, how many books does she have in the Top 100?? Certainly more than anyone else. But in my own exceedingly (not) humble opinion, she’d be amongst the top ten overrated readers of this century. I’ve forced my way through so many of her books, and the only bit I’ve really enjoyed is the ending. I can’t wait to read something else after Ms Keyes, because frankly, I need to take the nasty taste out of my mouth. Her books give other formulaic books a bad reputation. By chapter 3 you can see where each character is heading, and you just wish they’d hurry up and get there. So the ending is something of a relief. Marian Keyes or another author: life is too short to read stupid books.

In this charming and engaging "chick lit" novel, the author takes three unique women, each with her own demons and desires and throws them together. The characters are captivating and complex; Lisa, the bitchy, stunning, Prada-wearing magazine editor; Ashling, the plain-jane, mousy, overly organized, constantly worrying assistant editor, and Clodagh, the beautiful, unsatisfied housewife who appears to have it all. The novel is set in Dublin and follows the women through an interconnected series of events, with each of their lives unravelling and being pieced back together again. At 530 pages, the book is rather long for this genre, but it keeps pace pretty well. This was fun, sexy, sad, and triumphant all rolled into one, and I would recommend it to women in the mood for a good laugh, cry, and everything in between.

I love Marion Keye's writing. It's humurous, entertaining and downright silly. The characters in here are very funny and kind of realistic.
