Description

Unlike the rest of her family, Maggie Walsh has always done the right thing - that is until the day she leaves her husband and takes refuge with her friend Emily, a screenwriter in Los Angeles - a city where even the palm trees are skinny. Soon Maggie's doing all sorts of things she's never done before, such as wearing sunglasses in the shower and pitching scripts to studio executives - and meeting a mysterious man named Troy, who is so non-stick he's known as Human Teflon.

Good story -- GREAT narrator

This was a good book -- funny and sad. It wasn't the deepest book but this was very entertaining. But the narrator just made the book live giving it more depth than maybe it really had. The narrator had a great sense of comic timing and managed to create different voices for the characters seamlessly without it being schticky. Good story made great by a fabulous narrator. I'll actually look for more books narrated by her and no, this is not her mother!

I enjoyed this story. It could have been a bit more grasping, but I'd listen to it again.

Good storyline, humorous and well written

Love this author and this series of family dramas, the Walsh's are always good for a laugh. Well weaved together with the the other books so it doesn't really matter which order u read them. The narrator did a good job with the Irish characters but the American accents were a bit weird. Now I'm just being picky....

Love Marian Keyes!

I am totally engrossed in the Walsh family series. I Laugh my way though it and shed an occasional tear.
Love Maggie. You will want to go for a sink with her afterward. Hated to see book come to an end even though the American accents were the worst by the narrator.

Good girl gone wild, but riding the brakes

Would you try another book from Marian Keyes and/or Gerri Halligan?

Absolutely! I'm a big fan of Keyes' work. Halligan however had a hard time with different American accents, it kind of pulled me out of the story at times.

If you’ve listened to books by Marian Keyes before, how does this one compare?

It was a well-developed story with a main character you could relate to, and while I enjoyed the book, it was not my favorite of hers.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Gerri Halligan?

Maybe if there are no American characters in the story. Maybe if the characters are all Irish.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes please!

Any additional comments?

I loved how Keyes developed the character of Maggie Walsh. As everyone has written her off as the good girl of the family who does everything right, Keyes slowly pulls back the layers of her past to reveal much greater depth to this woman. I thought her a bit scattered and childish in certain parts that seemed uncharacteristic, but could attribute that to anyone going through a life crisis, as this character certainly was. Overall a fun read.

Kurzweilige Story

Vom Inhalt her eine nette Story mit einigen unerwarteten Wendungen. Von der Sprecherin her eigentlich sehr angenehm und gut verständlich (ich liebe diesen irischen Dialekt!), allerdings etwas mühsam, wenn männliche Personen gesprochen werden. Diese klingen irgendwie teilweise gleich und wie in einem Hörbuch für Kinder.
