Not quite typical

This was the first audio-book I down loaded and I have to say I was very pleased. I had a 1600km car trip in front of me and I listened to it the whole journey.
Whilst I found it enjoyable it was not quite a typical Marian Keyes. There were more 'dark' overtones and it was more serious in parts than her usual free spirited style of writing.
All in all... not bad:)

Easy Listening

If you enjoy Marian Keyes, this is a novel similar to her others. The numerous characters live in one apartment building, we get to know some of their thoughts thanks to a "spirit" looking for ...the intent of which we are told almost at the end of the book. It sounds weird and at the word spirit, I probably would not have downloaded this book. While it does sound strange, it is not evil or wacky, it is a light book with some deep matter involved. Overall I did enjoy this very much, Marian Keyes is an author that does not disappoint.

Marian Keyes can do no wrong!

I listened to this book in one day it was so hard to put down. I dont like chick-lit generally, however Marian Keyes does it for me, I don;t think her novels can count as chick-lit though, especially the more recent ones. It was different to her usual work, but very very interesting.

The Brightest Star in the Sky

The Brightest Star in the Sky is another great novel by Marian Keyes. I love the way she is able to take serious issues and realistic characters and weave them into a story where the different strands eventually connect to create a funny and touching novel. Her plots are great and her subplots keep you guessing. Well worth listening to.
