te hagan pensar, Keyes es nica Daily Express I used to love a Marian Keyes They were light and funny and a vacation for my mind This as none of those things I didn t find it funny and it was just one stupid thing after another Initially I liked Stella Sweeney She was suffering from a life threatening disease and you really had to root for it Funny No After she recovers she makes some really odd decisions A lot of things that are preposterous happen including how she writes a book She has an ex husband that s an idiot, a daught I used to love a Marian Keyes They were light and funny and a

disease and you really had to root for it Funny No After she recovers she makes some really odd decisions A lot of things that are preposterous happen including how she writes a book She has an ex husband that s an idiot, a daughter who lives in the clouds and a son who hates her She makes her life so much harder for herself Funny yet In the end I grew to find her so annoying and the supporting characters made of cardboard I was so disappointed I had expected some cheer and got a lesson on sex with lessons I had never even thought of That was a real eye opener I had no idea the Irish were that randy just kidding I feel like Keyes, like Janet Evanovich, have exhausted their genre I find no reason to waste your time on this I normally don t review books, but as a long time Keyes fan, I feel compelled to.It pains me to say it, but I have a lot of beefs with this book These are the top three 1 The Protagonist, Stella She just didn t make sense to me 80% of the time she s a complete doormat She gets bullied by her kids, her husband, her sister pretty much all of the main cast, and she just takes it Happily Gratefully I thought she might grow some back bone after she was sick, but no The other characters a I normally don t review books, but as a long time Keyes fan, I feel compelled to.It pains me to say it, but I have a lot of beefs with this book These are the top three 1 The Protagonist, Stella She just didn t make sense to me 80% of the time she s a complete doormat She gets bullied by her kids, her husband, her sister pretty much all of the main cast, and she just takes it Happily Gratefully I thought she might grow some back bone after she was sick, but no The other characters and Stella herself say she is prideful, but the only character she shows her prideful side to is the love interest who was only ever nice to her, so it came out seeming like the author was just trying to create conflict for the sake of it They do also address that she s insecure, but it s just not enough to make me buy it.2 The Side Characters In short, they were just too ridiculous to be real To be honest, I can narrow my problem down to just her son and ex husband because the rest aren t super awful, just not as good as I know the author is capable of writing But Jesus, those two After awhile, they seem like sociopaths And I get that the son was prolly meant to be taken as funny, but he wasn t In fact, there are a lot of beats in this book that are meant to go over the top and be funny, but came off as too much and took me out of the story It s like Keyes doesn t know when to pull back any.3 The Structure, specifically the time jumps at the beginning The hospital was easily the best part of the book Flashing between that and the present , well It s not fun to go from the strongest to the weakest part of the narrative I felt annoyed every time the good bits were interrupted.Overall, it just seemed shallow It actually hurts me to say bad things about Marian Keyes I mean, I had to go way out of the way to even find this book since it won t be released in the USA for awhile still I love her and think she s very funny and very talented and I wish her nothing but the best and I actually hope this book does well see how much I care Lol Keyes doesn t always deliver and I know a lot of her long time fans have been disappointed lately and I have to agree with them And there s one or two of her older books that I don t love either, but I do want to say that when she DOES come through she s completely amazing She s on a whole nother level than the other writers in her genre.So I m going to shake it off and wait for the next one I received an ARC of this book via Netgalley.com and PenguinUK in return for an honest reviewStella has turned forty, her husband is forever working and her two teenage kids are like ships passing the night Her daughter has a boyfriend now and thinks she s in love, while her son isinterested in yoga and cooking than being a regular teenage boy Then an unexpected illness means Stella s life is about to change, inways than one.The story zigzags through different stages of a two year I received an ARC of this book via Netgalley.com and PenguinUK in return for an honest reviewStella has turned forty, her husband is forever working and her two teenage kids are like ships passing the night Her daughter has a boyfriend now and thinks she s in love, while her son isinterested in yoga and cooking than being a regular teenage boy Then an unexpected illness means Stella s life is about to change, inways than one.The story zigzags through different stages of a two year period in Stella s life From hospital in Dublin to hotels around The United States, working in a beauty salon alongside her sister, to having her own self help book tour Stella is re discovering herself but there is someone watching who wants her new life, and will stop at nothing to have it.I have been a huge fan of Marian Keyes since her first novel Watermelon and have read everything she has written since From the Walsh Family sagas to her under the duvet stories Marion has a knack of bringing a sense of Irish comedy into all her books without them seeming contrived This book had me giggling away from page one with the views on Karma, a Bitter Women s Bookclub and an ex husband who is clearly going off the rails Her father was what got me laughing the most The vision of him reading to Stella aloud when she is in hospital, and his reaction to some of the books, was just hilarious.Unfortunately, things slid downhill from here The narrative is weak and the chopping and changing time frames were confusing and eventually became irritating While some sections were sub headed with HIM, HER, this confused meas other sections had no such headings and didn t even seem to gel together in any particular order or relevance Stella s son Jeffrey seemed to have potential at the start of the book but became a cliche once his parents separated Moody is one thing, rude and obnoxious are another Demanding diva like behaviour brought his character to a whole other level, and it was not a good one Her daughter, Betsy was given a rare appearance and had no substance Ryan, the husband, had some bite in him at the beginning, but like his son, became so annoying a character that had he been real, I would have left the country to avoid for ever, bringing my children with me under false travel documents so he could never contact us again A smarmy, selfish idiot who any sane woman would avoid at all costs This bring me to Mannix The new man who starts off as a knight in shining armor and re appears, suddenly single, available and hankering after Stella Not at all put off by her atrocious children and ex, he obviously sees something in Stella that I never spotted and, from here on in, the book sunk Far too long over 550 pages , poor story line and awful characters except for Stella s Dad and Mannix s ex , meant that I had to force myself to care enough to finish Considering its great beginning, I was sorely disappointed However, it is Marian Keyes, and I am sure it will head straight to the number one spot when published in November, just in time for the Christmas market Sorry Penguin, this Irish reader wants the old Marian Back spoiler alert What a disaster Not quite as bad as the schlocky magical realism of The Brightest Star in the Sky, but close This may be an acceptable book for a anyone who hasn t read Marian Keyes before But for those of us who have I think we expect her work to be, first and foremost, funny Fail The attempts at humour were trying too hard I think I maybe giggled to myself once or twice.Now, the characters usually her characters are jumping off the page and are so

head In the end she was just a failure at everything, and not in a charming way I couldn t even see why Mannix was so mad about her The other characters are mostly one dimensional or boring.The zigzag timeline structure is just confusing instead of thrilling The HIM HER ME headings Don t even know what that s about Everything interesting happens in the first half We all know exactly what s going to happen No suspense left with a couple hundred pagesto read Then we get an in depth look at publishing and book tours, which to me was just Keyes showing off how much experience she has in the area and venting her first world problems frustrations Might as well be GOOP.How can you call a book The Woman Who Stole My Life when that woman actually factors in so little Everything that happened to Stella was going to happen anyway, with or without Gilda.Why do all the Americans talk like Irish people No one in America says shall Come on, that s just amateur.And really, the BFF ends up with the ex husband and no one cares I almost threw the book across the room
