Ever since legwarmers were cool, best friends Tara, Katherine, and Fintan have survived small-town ennui, big-city heartbreak, and endless giddy nights out on the town. But now that they've graduated to their slightly more serious thirties, only Fintan has what can honestly be called a "love life." With Tara struggling daily with her eternal diet—and her dreadful, penny-pinching boyfriend—and Katherine keeping her single existence as organized as her drawer full of matching bra and panty sets, it seems they'll never locate the exit door out of the "last chance saloon."

But it's always when you are least ready for change that fate insists on one. And when catastrophe inevitably follows crisis, the lives of three best friends are sure to change in unexpected ways ... and not necessarily for the worse.

You devoured the hilarious antics of Claire in Watermelon.
You laughed 'til you cried in Lucy Sullivan Is Getting Married.
You took a vacation gone mad in Rachel's Holiday.
You flew away with Margaret—good girl gone bad—in Angels.
You got a peek inside the cutthroat world of women's fashion magazines in Sushi for Beginners.

Now, raise your glass to Tara, Katherine, and Fintan in Last Chance Saloon.

Phew. This is the first book I¿ve gotten through in a month. Seriously ¿ everything I¿ve picked up has remained unfinished. Nothing actually got my attention and held it. So is that saying much for this book that I¿ve actually finished it. Not really. It wasn¿t all that great. It was a combination of Bridget Jones and East Enders. But it was entertaining and I did finish it

One of the better books I read during my mid-twenties Chick-Lit phase. This was written with a generous helping of wit. I particularly liked the smug media character who considered it a bad week when he didn't get at least one pair of knickers in the post. Like most books of this genre, it is frequently clear which way the plot is going, making the journey there seem to drag a tad. The dieting plotline I found a bit patronising. On the other hand, this was one of the few books I have read to feature a character from Huddersfield, the town of my birth! Shame he was such a miserable git.....the accent was spot on, though. Four stars.

A cute, fluffy romance novel--all hail the Irish! Good humor and nice characters, though rather pigeonholed. However, the climaxes of the book--when the abused girlfriends get to tell their lousy boyfriends off--are not nearly satisfying enough. I wanted much more tongue-lashings. :)

I have really enjoyed the other Marian Keyes books I have read, but this one didn't do it for me. The ending was predictable and I just wanted the shilly-shallying to be over so they could find their happy ending.

Despite having very little plot, this character driven novel was quite an engaging read. The quote on the cover - "A comforting doorstopper of a read that's as addictive as solitaire" (Daily Mail) -- sums it up quite well. The novel revolves around three characters --Tara, Katherine and Fintan -- childhood friends from Ireland who are now thirty-ish and living in London.

Wonderful!!! The lives of three friends from Ireland - Tara, Katherine and Fintan. They moved to London together but have now grown into their 30's and live separately. Still the best of friends they share the ups and downs of life. Read it in only a couple of sittings. The book is finished and I feel I have lost a group of friends

I spent most of this book trying to figure out who the main character was, and why many of the background characters had their own story line (Lorcan). I didn't find the characters all that interesting, and while I finished the book in one day, it felt more like duty rather than enjoyment.

I have read an alarming number of Marian Keyes' books and they never fail to entertain -- this one was no exception. I always read them guiltily as they probably do not contribute greatly to my knowledge base. She has a formula and themes and it works. I recommend this to any woman who wants to turn off her brain and do some fun beach side, pool side, or vacation reading.

This is a cute book that tells the story of three friends: Tara, Katherine, and Fintan. Each has their struggles in the love department, which are interrupted by Fintan's illness. People assume at first that Fintan has HIV, since he is gay, but it turns out he has cancer and this crisis brings the friends together like never before. Fintan ends up challenging his two friends to make drastic changes in their love life, all in the spirit of living their lives as if they only have six months left to live.

OK, so I¿m starting to get what people see in Marian Keyes. Sure, the dialogue is snappy, if not exactly credible, and you know that there¿s a happy ending in there. But if it¿s chicklit you¿re after, I think there are better examples of it than this lot. People just aren¿t like this, and the plot is so transparent that getting to the end becomes so predictable you wonder if it¿s worth it. But if you want to read a book on a wet weekend and disengage your brain at the same time, Ms Keyes is for you. This one is inoffensive, soppy and unbelievable.
