Before this book, I would have declared myself a hardcore chick-lit fan. I can rattle of a list of writers from both the US and the UK. I can take pictures of my shelves showing rows and rows of chick-lit novels. I can preach to you about how I love the way Megan Crane speaks to women my age, the way Jennifer Crusie speaks to women my size, the way Jill Mansell makes me dream of the UK and all it has to offer. I was convinced ...more
Although I'm not really fond of chick-lit, and this book was predictable, I loved it!
Sure, I HATED HATED HATED, (did I say hated?) some characters (Karen and Gus), but even they seemed normal, real, people we've all dealt with at one time or another.
Some would say Lucy's character is weak, not a proper leading lady, but, even when I wanted to slap some sense into her, I adored her and understood her. She has a job she hates, roommates she loves and hates, coworkers that are one of a k ...more
Lucy Sullivan is a typical Londoner. Twenty-six years old, she is burdened with a dysfunctional family, a dead-end job, an anal-retentive boss, a medley of demented colleagues, flat mates who totter on the thin line between heaven and hell AND a love-life that’s riddled with enough potholes to make you dizzy.
And then a tarot-reader proclaim ...more
The best thing I can say about Marian Keyes is, when someone falls in love in one of her books (and someone always does) it's completely satisfying.
Sejujurnya, hampir sepanjang buku ini saya membenci Lucy. Dan menyalahkan dia atas semua kesialan yang menimpanya, lha wong dia sendiri yang minta kok.

Aku tak dapat membayangkan ada hal yang lebih membosankan daripada berkencan dengan pria yang memiliki gaji tetap, pria yang berhati-hati dengan uangnya, pria yang tahu bagaimana cara hidup agar tidak lebih besar pasak daripada tiang. Aku menganggap ketidakstabilan keua ...more

I decided to review this book today as a walk down memory lane, revisiting the fab story of little Lucy Sullivan and whether or not she gets married. I have read a lot of Marian's books over the course of the last 18 odd years but this story has to be my favourite, not only is an excellent story it also reminds me of a time ...more
The plot is pretty straightforward; Lucy is told by a psychic that she will be married in a year. As Lucy is currently single she's cynical, but when the psychic's other predictions come true ...more

Lucy is a single girl, living in London with her flatmates and visits a psychic who tells her she's getting married. When her friends' predictions come true, well, Lucy must be getting married. Enter Gus, who must be one of the most annoying characters in English fiction in my opinion. Lucy Lavan sounds so good, so she must be marrying Gus, yes? Of course not, we're only halfway through ...more
