it was ok
bookshelves: chick-lit
Read from February 20 to 27, 2011

Too long and too many characters! I think it's trying to be similar to This Charming Man but with mental illness but as not all the characters had a link to it I'm not sure it works so well. I did think Maeve and Matt's story was well done and I liked Connell even though I'm not sure he fit in with the overall message of the book. Fionn was completely unbelievable as were the Poles and Rosie even though they were bit parts.

Although the book has its faults, I have to admit I cried at the end. Just not up to Marian's normal standards!
