What I could not get over was the lack of, the's ands, its. etc. I do not believe people in Ireland do not use these words so whether it was the book or the narrator, I don't know. This spoilt it for me.
I wish there was an unabridged version of this audio book. There's so much more depth to the original story I read a few years ago.
The story is good, could have been another great easy listening title. However, Marian Keyes seems to think she is Helen Fielding and has written it in diary form- unfortunately She hasn't pulled it off.
