You'll be wincing in recognition and scratching your head in incredulity, but like Marian herself you won't be able to stop laughing at the sheer delightful absurdity that is modern life - because each and every one of us is clearly making it up as we go along. She has wonderful and tickling words of advice for those fast approaching 50.

I am a huge fan of Marian Keyes but this book is not worth spending your valuable time or money. It's full of trivia, neither funny nor witty and I did not enjoy the way the narrator read it out.

Unfortunately Average

Would you try another book written by Marian Keyes or narrated by Aoife McMahon?

Marian Keyes is a hugely popular author but this was my first read of one of her books. There were a few wry smiles here and there but on balance, the book is just boring. I managed to get about half way through and then my interest was well and truly lost.

I've read lots my narrator Aoife McMahon - she's first class !

Would you ever listen to anything by Marian Keyes again?

I'd have to try another Keyes book based on feedback from other readers. Maybe I was unlucky on this occasion.

Pure Enjoyment!

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this book, I found it to be very funny and insightful at the same time. I wish it would have gone on longer. The narration was excellent, I forgot that I wasn't listening to Marian herself.
