Summary

Tara, Katherine, and Fintan, friends since adolescence, are full proof that eccentricity is the spice of life. Strikingly different, yet worryingly similar, they all moved from rural Ireland to London to "seize the day" - or something like that. Now in their early 30s, success, on the surface, has made little change: The impressive, coolly controlled Katherine is a successful accountant, who doesn't really mind being nicknamed "Icequeen" by her male colleagues. Computer expert Tara is a compulsive dieter whose mission in life is to find a lipstick that doesn't come off. And fashion guru Fintan's aim seems to be to make everyone else's life more interesting - one way or another.

The Last Chance Saloon

I have been reluctant to purchase this audio book but am immensely grateful that I have eventually done so. The well chosen narrator brings the story alive. This novel,like all of Marian Keyes others ,is fantastic. It's full of realistic characters, so well developed that I find myself wondering what they will do next as if the story carries on some where beyond the fictional realm of this great book. Well worth the listen/read.

Appalling narration

Love the storyline and the characters but unfortunately I must agree with others this was appalling try of imitating Irish accent. It really sounded 'oirish'. Really sad as I love MK books and this one would be a definitely come back but I guess I will rather read than listen.

Deeper Chick Lit

One of Ms. Keyes best novels. Her characters are all very human and the story is very conceivable. Good ending- I wish she would write a sequel on some of the characters like she did with the Walsh sisters in "Rachel's Holiday"

That Wannabe `Irish accent again

There's a lot of people out there who actually speak Irish accents well, and there's a lot of Irish narrators. Could you please find one who doesn't massacre the language like this lady? Made the book heavy going. I tried this book to see if she had got any better, but no.
