    Normally not my type of book but my lovely friend Heidi loaned me two by this author and it definitely got some chuckles out of me, though initially, picking it up was slow going While at first I was tempted to dismiss it in the genre of Chic Lit of which I am not a fan , I felt I had to read it in its entirety for Heidi s sake I.e if a friend is thoughtful enough to recommend a book to you then definitely you should give it a proper go TheI read Marian Keyes the I felt as if I we Normally not my type of book but my lovely friend Heidi loaned me two by this author and it definitely got some chuckles out of me, though initially, picking it up was slow going While at first I was tempted to dismiss it in the genre of Chic Lit of which I am not a fan , I felt I had to read it in its entirety for Heidi s sake I.e if a friend is thoughtful enough to recommend a book to you then definitely you should give it a proper go TheI read Marian Keyes the I felt as if I were in a pub with a highly entertaining Irish woman telling me hilarious story after story Indeed I felt like I was in the company of my friends from Ireland and reading Keyes brought back fond memories of Helena and Anne Marie and the gang all now having moved back to the Emerald Isle Aside from the content of the stories themselves in this collection essays and some short stories , which were topics in a broad range from girly type things like self tanning and shoe fetishes to angels in Los Angeles toseriously orphanages in Russia and the author s alcoholism and how writing saved her life literally, the many Irish isms tone, speech, vocabulary, etc are definitely what would keep me reading this author

    While I m not generally one to pick up a book full of essays and articles, my love for Marian Keyes is much stronger than my slight aversion to such collections Knowing I wouldn t love it as I do her novels, I wasn t disappointed I read the essays and articles side first, and really enjoyed the feeling of getting to know one of my favorite authors and her family and friends a little bit better I finished with the stories, and just loved them I love the Walshes and was thrilled to see the i While I m not generally one to pick up a book full of essays and articles, my love for Marian Keyes is much stronger than my slight aversion to such collections Knowing I wouldn t love it as I do her novels, I wasn t disappointed I read the essays and articles side first, and really enjoyed the feeling of getting to know one of my favorite authors and her family and friends a little bit better I finished with the stories, and just loved them I love the Walshes and was thrilled to see the inclusion of Mammy Walsh, though to be honest that turned out to be my least favorite in the story section The angel in LA was the best IMO A nice change of pace and enjoyable snippets when I didn t have the time to delve into a new book

    I usually tend to stray away from books like these, but it wasn t bad It s a collection of stories and other little essays that I thought were really interesting However, I do stay away for a reason I prefer full novels with a solid plot throughout the whole thing because that s just what keeps me interested I did think that it was alright, and if you are someone who does like books like these than go ahead and pick it up I do love Marian s writing, but I think I ll stick to her full 500 pa I usually tend to stray away from books like these, but it wasn t bad It s a collection of stories and other little essays that I thought were really interesting However, I do stay away for a reason I prefer full novels with a solid plot throughout the whole thing because that s just what keeps me interested I did think that it was alright, and if you are someone who does like books like these than go ahead and pick it up I do love Marian s writing, but I think I ll stick to her full 500 page novels next time The little essays were nice, but just not for me

    Another very enjoyable collection, although I think I would ve preferred it as just essays Short form fiction is not Keyes strong point and while the stories were mildly diverting, they were overall pretty weak and because they were the last part of the book that I read, it slightly taints the memory I love her essays and her honesty and wit, however Which of course, I already knew, but nice to haveevidence.

    A collection of essays and short stories by the humorous Irish writer The short stories are quirky and fun, but it s in the essays reprinted from magazines such as Abroad or Marie Claire that her Irish charm shines through She sounds like someone I would like to hang out with, although I don t know as she would want to hang out with me.

    Decidedly not funny

    Universal themes such as friends and family, home, glamour and beauty, children and travel Hilarious and thoughtful take on life is what we all get from these short stories.
