    "Not her best"

    I think I am out growing Marian Keyes. This was very dull and I knew what was going to happen right at the beginning.

    "She's done it again"

    No one can navigate the reader through heart rending , agonising life traumas like Marian Keyes. Her characters are loveable and real. I want to stay with them all through the rest of their lives

    "Touching"

    Marian Keyes tells an unusual tale about relationships, and family life in her own quirky style. Heart warming, touching & funny. I loved it x

    "Not her best"

    A bit lightweight and fluffy compared with her other books but a nice enough listen.

    "Boring"

    Found this really really boring . Kept fast forwarding 5 chapters but nothing had changed . Had nothing of interest to say - just so so dull.

    Story
    "Enjoyable, Funny, Painful"

    There was much in this book that struck a chord with me - having had a husband who went off and did his own thing without any consideration for the impact on the children, the wider family, and me. I was a bit cheesed off with the predictable conclusion - but as this is a work of fiction the fairy tale ending is probably more acceptable than the unpalatable alternative. Overall the narration was great apart from the really terrible attempt at a Geordie accent - Josh was a significant character, and if I hadn't been enjoying the book so much, this accent would have been enough to make me stop listening.

    Story
    "Dreary..."

    I am normally a big fan of Marian Keyes but this was a great disappointment... dreary, predictable & without charm. I couldn't warm to any of the characters and literally had to force myself to stick with it until the end... it wasn't worth it

    "Really enjoyed the storytelling, emotional story"

    Loved it from beginning to end, so many thoughts that go through the human mind when faced with difficulties in life.
