Marian Keyes is possibly my favourite chick flick author. Yes, she writes about love and relationships, and finding a 'man', but it's so much more than that. She tackles depression, alcoholism, family troubles, but does so in a truly wonderful, sensitive and moving way. Plus, she has a great writing style, an authentic irish voice, and she tells a cracking good story!

I think Sushi for beginners might be my favourite Keyes book, I think (although I'm not sure) that it was the first one of hers I read. It features Dublin and Dun Laoghaire (my hubbie's home town) and at its centre is the heroine Ashling, an everywoman for our times!

Given to Antof9 today as a RABCK, during our trip up the Uetliberg for lunch!

Oh my! I just realized I never caught this book! When I got back from our lovely lunch that day, Unk and I did a quick jaunt into town. And then the Internet connection at the house was a problem, and. . . I can't believe I forgot to catch this! *ack*!

Thanks SO much for such a lovely afternoon, and also for this book. It was my company the entire trip back (8 1/2 hours to Washington, D.C. and another 3 1/2 to Denver), and I've just finished it. I'll write my thoughts in another journal entry, but definitely wanted to thank you for sharing this book with me!

Edited to add a pic I took from the same spot -- I didn't know how it would turn out, as it was just a guess with the phone on my camera! It turned out great :) The funny part? When I showed it to my brother who lives there, he asked if it was the Space Needle in Seattle!

This is going to a friend who recently encountered Marian Keyes. I don't know if she'll like it or not, but it's fun for this book to travel more and it can keep this book company.

I'm sorry I never wrote a real journal entry. I liked this one -- great for travel, but I thought it a bit predictable. I think this is the book that prompted me to ask if shoplifting was as common (and acceptable) there as it seemed in the book. This one was a great plane book :)

My friend antof9 sent me this and another book as a RABCK. She's catering to my new-found and tentative openness to chick-lit!

Like the book-slut that I am, though, I'd already bought this one. I'm headed for Italy this coming week - maybe I'll take it on another little plane ride . . .

Thank you, darlin'!!
