Description

The brand new audiobook from the best-selling author of The Break and The Woman Who Stole My Life.

They're a glamorous family, the Caseys. Johnny Casey, his two brothers Ed and Liam, their beautiful, talented wives and all their kids spend a lot of time together - birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, weekends away. And they're a happy family. Johnny's wife, Jessie - who has the most money - insists on it. 

Under the surface, though, conditions are murkier. While some people clash, other people like each other far too much.... Everything stays under control until Ed's wife Cara, gets concussion and can't keep her thoughts to herself. One careless remark at Johnny's birthday party, with the entire family present, starts Cara spilling out all their secrets. In the subsequent unravelling, every one of the adults finds themselves wondering if it's time - finally - to grow up?

Hm...

I like Marian Keyes in interviews and youtube videos and really enjoyed some of her previous books, so I have been looking forward to this one for a while. Now that I am finished after seventeen hours I am left with very mixed feelings. I don’t want to give spoilers, so I won’t elaborate on my disappointment, but, oh well, I didn’t like the ending of the one relationship I cared about and found some excessively elaborate descriptions and character arcs really dissatisfying. That said, the book is an easy listen and the many hours pass quickly.

Very disappointing

I tried and tried to finish this book but just couldn't - and after many attempts and re-listening to chapter I still don't know what the point of it was. It was so disconnected and very hard to get into any single part of it with any interest. Don't waste your credits.

Brought me to tears

I have read all of Marian Keyes books. They remind me of a time in my life in my twenties when I met and became friends with let’s just call her Jo. She would often buy Marian Keyes books and lend them to me when she was done. Absolutely loved this book as I have loved all the others.

Not all authors should narrate their own books

The story itself is, as always, a perfectly beautiful Marian Keyes delight. The only issue is the narration. A brilliant author is not automatically the best person to also narrate it. It wasn't awful, just a bit grating on one's nerves..... unless it's normal in Ireland to pronounce single words as though they are two - EG: Mouthed = Mouth-ED; Breathed = Breathe-ED; Safety = Safe-ITY; Back and Forth'd = Back and Forth-ED. Weird. But other than that, it's a wonderful book and I would highly recommend it.

More actors, less authors

I absolutely adore Keyes' writing, but I don't think she should read her own stories. It was very hard to follow the dialogues and the storyline. I got confused about whether a new paragraph was starting. I really appreciate the portrayal of a certain mental illness - it seems very accurate. However, I think there were just a bit too many characters in this book: This made the plot almost impossible to follow in the beginning and I feel like some could only be portrayed superficially.

Not my fav

I love this author but this work felt pushed. So much conversation in the first half of the book between so many characters. It’s so hard to figure out who is who. It took half the book to find any point to any of the stories and it felt like pointless chatter. Not a fan of this one.

Very disappointing

17 hours of my life that I can't ever get back. Having been a huge fan of Marian Keys, I am always excited when a new release hits the stands. This was so unlike any of her other books! Extremely dull story-line, which seemed to go on and on without much point. The plot only got exciting in the last few chapters. Boring story about a family who does nothing but holiday together, but can barely get along. Disappointing ,

Marian never disappoints

As always, listening to Marian was like having a comforting chat with an old friend. This audiobook helped get me through some of the horrendous anxiety of lockdown. Thanks Marian. Your die-hard fan always.

Love this book

I'm a big fan of Marion Keyes. She's added a few serious themes to this book, as well as the usual comedy. She's narrated herself.

She did it again!

I have been a Marian Keyes fan since a fellow backpacker gave me Lucy Sullivan is getting married in London in 2000. I have read every book since and buy it without even reading what it’s about. So you know I’m a fan and this might be biased. I discovered Audible only 3 years ago when my son was born. So this was my first MK book on Audible - and read by the author. I LOVED IT. I might never get to Ireland to have lunch with the Keyes family but this felt very close!

Great book - need a new narrator

I loved the story and the way it is written makes you fall in love with each character little by little. However I could not stand being able to hear the narrator stop and swallow, this made me cringe and I finished the book but would not hear it again, I also found she did not stop enough between paragraph where point of view shifted making it difficult to follow.

Love it

I love that Marian read it herself... As always, the characters are so well described and I feel like I am watching a movie. I had to listen to the beginning a few times because of the number of characters but absolutely loved it once I got it... It needs a sequence... I want to know what happened to Liam...

mixed feelings

The book was fine but drawn out. I did struggle to finish the book. It was fine in the end and an ending I didn't expect. The Irish accent was a surprise yet it did make the book different than the ones I usually seem to hear on audible.

Uninspired story and performance

I don’t know what I was expecting when purchasing this audiobook, however the shallow story and missing ‘excitement’ made this a very lengthy hearing experience. Would recommend for someone looking for soap opera style entertainment and a tour through Ireland. Having lived on the green island for 5 years myself - I can attest that also those aspects of the story are shallow at best.

A surrogate family after a few minutes

Everything that makes a Marian Keyes: a great story out the ordinary. Characters that grow on you after a few sentences, plus depth, wit and warmth. Bonus, I love her as the narrator. To me it made the whole book even more grounded, personal and relatable.

Great

Loved it. Marion Keyes has an amazing voice to listen to. Her comment about the menopause in the acknowledgements perfect.
