Desperately single thirtysomething men and women populate Keyes's breezy novel. Childhood friends Tara, Katherine, and Fintan muddle along, dealing with the indignities and inconveniences we all face--and then some. Tara's perfectly horrible, freeloading boyfriend Thomas watches her diet like a hawk and remarks cruelly on the size of her posterior, comparing her unfavorably to younger, thinner women. Katherine is a professional success, but her personal life is nonexistent. Every one of her prior relationships--six in all--has ended disastrously, with Katherine getting dumped. Each time, she retreats further and further into her shell, until her most intimate relationship is with her remote control. Fashion industry insider Fintan has found true love with his Italian boyfriend, Sandro, but a health crisis threatens their happiness. Tara, Katherine, and Fintan, as well as their quirky cast of friends (people with names like Lorcan and Mandii), live, love, and learn the hard way, the only way they can.

Hi Lauraloo
This book was so hard for me to get into.
Didn't know why. maybe because it is huge and I have set a goal, to read 100 books in 1 year?
anyway I had tried to read it twice. Both times I'd read 10 pages and then I received another book and stopped reading this one.

Well third time lucky. Again it was hard.I think because the main persons annoyed me, and did not have anything in common with them. I do not see food everywhere (Tara), and am not in control of my self like Katherine, + tara annoyed me ,it was hard for me reading she took all that abuse of her boyfriend.
at one moment I thought I can't read any further. I am going to quit. Tried another book, but started to miss this book so I picked it up again :-)
Quess what. I am so glad I did. it is great, I am laughing so much.
Last night in bed I could not stop. it was 01.00 am and I was alone in the house (Glad for that!) screaming with laughter.
Love the Irish family of Finton, and the mudd bath of tara :-)
I have read about 450 pages and still nearly 150 to go.
Hooray!!! :-) thanks!

Mange tak til dig Mie. Jeg hentede bogen på posthuset for et par dage siden, men har været uden internet, så derfor er den først blevet registreret nu.
Jeg ser frem til at læse den, men lige nu ryger den bare på "to be read".

This book was a perfect summer read. I have enjoyed it sitting in a chair sunbathing - completely covered in sunlotion.
