A mysterious presence watches the cast of interesting characters who live in an apartment building in Dublin over the course of sixty one days. This lengthy book starts a delightful read about entangled relationships and changing lives. The spirit's narration is really enjoyable and adds a touch of humorous snarkiness. But the spirit keeps referring to a big change coming to one of the residents, providing an ominous foreshadowing that keeps the reader glued to the pages. And as it goes deeper into their memories and more is revealed about the character's lives, the reader becomes aware that the presence is waiting for something. This spirit has the ability to change at least one of their lives. I'm not really into fantasy, but it didn't take long to get me sucked in and stuck! I recommend!

It is a quick and easy read, not exactly a "can't put it do

It is a quick and easy read, not exactly a "can't put it down" story, but interesting enough to finish. I didn't see all that much very funny about it, but it had its moments. If you buy it on sale, it's worth reading and then pass it along to someone else.

    Life is an amazing journey when written through the eyes of Marian Keyes! Captures you from page 1 to the very end...you don't want to put it down!!

    Once I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down. I stayed up late night after night, took it where ever I went, just to get more reading done. It grabs your interest from page 1 and you get so involved with the characters and the direction of the plot, you have to know what happens next. A must read by one of my favorite authors. So human, so relatable, so interesting. Life is an amazing journey when written through the eyes of Marian Keyes!

    Loved It!

    If you like any of her books, you will like this book. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a good entertaining book to read. Her characters are always warm and funny and I haven't read a bad one yet. My favorite was Rachel's Holiday.

    The Marian Keyes that you know and love...

    I'm a huge fan of Marian Keyes and having just bought a Nook, I was excited that it coincided with the U.S. publication of her most recent book so that my first e-book purchase would be for a new book by an author that I love. I enjoy almost all of her books, but this is one of her best yet. I loved all of the characters, but particularly Lydia. She was funny, but real. The great thing about Keyes' books is that they are hilariously funny but meaningful at the same time. Can't wait for the next one! If you haven't read anything by her yet and you like this book, try Rachel's Holiday, Watermelon or Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married.
