Read in January, 2005

Always refreshing to pick up another Marian Keyes novel after taking a break. The depth of the emotion portrayed in the book as well as the snippets of reality (you know those moments when you stop and admit to yourself that there's truth behind some of the funny stories in the book - not that we'll admit it out loud) definitely makes it worth the read.
It is not just funny and lighthearted, but a 'deep' and very emotional journey that the reader embarks on with the character. One would grow with her; this includes getting irritated with the character when she is being daft, and also rooting for Claire when she is making progress.
Marian still has the ability to tell the story in such a way that you don't ever feel she is using too many words and descriptions in a scene, and yet short enough for us to understand exactly what situation Claire finds herself in.
Very clever writing and too captivating for my own good!
