Publisher's Summary

Unlike the rest of her family, Maggie Walsh has always done the right thing - that is until the day she leaves her husband and takes refuge with her friend Emily, a screenwriter in Los Angeles - a city where even the palm trees are skinny. Soon Maggie's doing all sorts of things she's never done before, such as wearing sunglasses in the shower and pitching scripts to studio executives - and meeting a mysterious man named Troy, who is so non-stick he's known as Human Teflon.

Good story -- GREAT narrator

This was a good book -- funny and sad. It wasn't the deepest book but this was very entertaining. But the narrator just made the book live giving it more depth than maybe it really had. The narrator had a great sense of comic timing and managed to create different voices for the characters seamlessly without it being schticky. Good story made great by a fabulous narrator. I'll actually look for more books narrated by her and no, this is not her mother!

Enjoyable

I enjoyed this story. It could have been a bit more grasping, but I'd listen to it again.

LA Angels, review

In this book we meet sensable Maggie who has done the right things all her life. She is a prime example of a good daughter, sister and wife. The book starts when Maggie leaves her husband of 9 years because she finds out he's been seeing another woman. After a few months of deep depression, she goes to LA to live with her scrip writer friend Emily for amonth. The glamorous city teaches Maggie a lot about life and herself. She certainly discovers that the glory glitter and glamour of LA only is a shiny surface and that the capital of movie stars perhaps isn't all that it's cracked up to be. In true Marian Keyes style, we get to hear about all the changes Maggie goes through as well as her past which explains her current situation. A past which reveals that Maggie hasn't always been little miss perfect.

This book, like most of Marian Keyes' written work, is full of humour, good language and at times, tears.A relaxing, entertaining read perfect for the summer.

Lovely light entertainment!

What made the experience of listening to Angels the most enjoyable?

The story as it unfolds is really interesting, I love the main character's view of America and her life, she is a very likable girl.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lara -> she was fun and free and well described

What three words best describe Gerri Halligan’s voice?

Entertaining

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listen to audiobooks int he car and I often sat in the drive for a while before switching off and going inside, it was really very entertaining.

Any additional comments?

The American accents were a bit annoying, they were too forced. I love the Irish accents though, they made the characters so much more interesting.

Great book didn't like narration

It was a good book but the narrator puts you off the story, she sounds a lot older than the age of the characters...sounds a bit like your grandmother reading to you.
