Great summer read -- any of Marian Keyes' books dealing with the Walsh sisters is worth reading

I loved this book, it was great to catch up with the Walsh sisters again. Marian Keyes has managed another fun read with just the right amount of laughter, drama and love.

Could have done with being shorter, I found it a challenge to stay inspired enough to keep turning the pages.

Right, this one is a readable entry into the chick-lit genre, undemanding and not too bad. Maggie Walsh has run away from her life and her husband. Actually she looses her job and then decides that there is nothing to keep her in Ireland so she runs to a friend in the US. Her adventures in LA, meeting new people, finding out the difference between love and lust and finding herself are all good things. The path to the breakup of her marriage are clearly shown and it's interesting to see.

Liked it. Good story.Not just the usual single girl story, but a married woman whose husband has an affair, and how she goes out to explore her life. Plus her quirky family and friends. 7/9/04

Description: After catching her husband having an affair and being fired from her job, Maggie Walsh suddenly finds her perfectly organized existence has become a perfect mess. She decides, for the first time in her life, to do something daring -- and flees to her best friend, Emily, in the faraway wonderland of Los Angeles. In this mecca of tanned, beautiful bodies, unsvelte, uncool Maggie is decidedly a fish out of water. Yet, overnight, she's mixing with film folk, pitching scripts, even experimenting with sex -- and discovering that the end of a marriage is not the end of the world.My thoughts: I don't know why this book has so many pages, the story could have been written much shorter. I must say that I often found myself bored while reading, that is not my definition of chic lit.

As always, I am compelled to read all things Marian Keyes, particularly if it's about the Walshes. This one was about the "lickarse" Maggie. These books always engage me but I find that the characters are always drawn a bit vaguely, I never feel like I got to know them enough. I do like reading her books because the dialogue can be so funny, especially in Irish idiom.

I love Marian Keyes. Also like others say, I am always drawn to stories about the Walsh family. Maybe because I have two sisters and we are all different as can be. I loved this story. I loved that Maggie was able to explore, live life and learn so much in a relatively short period of time. I loved that she came through it, scathed, but a bit smarter and with more experience under her belt. The one thing I love in any book! Fantastic. One to another Marian Keyes book.

This looked like a fun, light read, and it was fun. In parts, it was even light, but overall, it was well-written and actually pretty deep. The story starts with the main character’s (Maggie) marriage falling apart right about the time she gets let go from her job. Keyes reveals what is going on from only Maggie’s point of view, and it takes some time to get to the whole story, as Maggie tries to avoid it all by diving into a new life in L.A. with her best friend. As time passes, however, Maggie realizes that running away from her immediate problems is not working, and she begins to face what is really happening in her life, and we discover more about the real situation. It is clear pretty quickly that there is a lot more to the story than we know, but it takes a while for the tale to unfold. I loved it. I wasn’t expecting to love it. I think I will have to read some more Marian Keyes books.
