Loved it!

Love Marian Keyes and her books! Always so entertaining- her characters are so full and funny and real - especially the women - all that gerbil ball racing in their heads! Love it! Thanks again for another great book!

So enjoyable!

I thoroughly enjoyed The Break. It is a great story, so full of many aspects of life, and made me laugh and cry. It was very well read by Aoife.

So boring ...

Marian Keyes books used to be my reading-candy: funny, original, easy to digest - but somehow true, always with a really serious human theme underneath the lighthearted story. But this one leaves me speechless. Was there no editor to sharpen the story? Its full of repetitions, lots of loose ends that appear and disappear pointlessly. Yes, there are sparkles of the Keyes wittiness we love, but its so diluted, I can't recognize it.

Not her best

I think I am out growing Marian Keyes. This was very dull and I knew what was going to happen right at the beginning.

A Light Hearted Romp

An enjoyable and convincing story of family relationships and dynamics. The characters are well rounded and believable, but I feel that the numerous explicit sex scenes detract from the book.

Aoife McMahon's performances are nothing short of brilliant! Her rendition of the voices of the various characters is superb and very convincing.

The Break would appeal to those interested in romantic fiction and family dynamics in modern day Ireland.
