Didn't know what I was letting myself in for

What a book! I can honestly say I have not enjoyed a book this much since I can't remember when. The book opens up with Anna Walsh, who is the main character of this book, recovering from some kind of episode, for want of a better word (I won't spoil this for you by telling you what kind of episode), in Ireland with her family. It is both sad and hilarious at the same time and every emotion you have ever felt comes spilling out with her in everything she does from work to play, from despair to acceptance from Ireland to New York. If you want a really good book that you will recommend to all your book-loving friends then this is the one for you. It has had me laughing until I thought my sides would split and tears of laughter were carousing down my face as well as crying soon after with tears of sadness spilling down my face. Just an amazing book and I loved every word, sentence and paragraph and couldn't wait to hear more and now I am really sad that I have finished reading it.

An absorbing read

I was not at all sure I would like this book. It is not my sort of book really, but I thought I would try it as I didn't want to get stuck in a rut.
Without going into any of the story- the other reviewers have done that well enough- I would just say that this is an absorbing book that never quite went where I expected. If Chick Lit is not your thing give it a go anyway- it draws you down to the deepest of human emotions and yet is not indulgent.
