Last Chance Saloon

The characters were so silly and stupid that you just want to smack them in the head, especially Tara. Give me a break woman, how is it that you accept living with a man who dotes on his cat while spewing verbal abuses at you in the same second? Ridiculous.
And really, Marian Keyes, all the unnecessary detail...you're killing me. I was skimming through passage afte ...more
I've read this book many times over the years and I can happily pick this book up and start from a page chosen at random. The storyline is really engaging and I've laughed and cried reading this book.

In typical Keyes fashion, the characters are all terrible flawed and all the more likeable for it. I really think Katherine is not up there with my favourite Keyes characters, as is the lovely Fintan (which makes the usual heartbreaking plot-line of the book even more heartbreaking).

Straight away I got a sense of fun from the main characters, they had a great friendship and were comfortable and relaxed in each others company. Tara had a bit of a problem with food and I could totally relate to that! Any parts that mentioned her hunger either had me nodding my head because it’s something I do, or laughing out loud at how hilariously she behaves when she’s hungry. Seeing everyday ob ...more

This book was so hard for me to get into.
Didn't know why. maybe because it is huge and I have set a goal, to read 100 books in 1 year?

Well third time lucky. Again it was hard.I think because the main persons annoyed me, and did not have an ...more
Back to the journal entry on this book -- I have several spots marked, so let's see if I can remember what I marked!

The book follows the life of 3 friends and jumps back and forward every now and again from the present to events that shaped who they are today.
Funny, sad and even cringe worthy at some points but a total fantastic light read, I loved it 5/5 for me.
