An interesting and unusual novel about the residents of a four condo building in Dublin. Just as in life, some of the characters are more likeable and interesting than others, and just about everyone has a secret.
The story is told with a lot of flashbacks as the characters and thier lives are revealed, but I didn't have any difficulty keeping things straight. As allegiences and relationships shift, you don't always know who you want to root for, but the ending is a satisfying and uplifting one.
This book takes place in Ireland and is about the lives of tenants in an apartment building and how eventually their lives become intertwined. The book made me laugh out loud a few times. I also had to Google a few Irish terms. Enjoyable read!
loved this book! I am a huge fan of Marian Keyes and this book didnt let me down at all. the start was a bit odd, but i quickly got used to it, and loved the characters and the story. I was so sad when i read the last page, knowing the journey of getting to know the people that lived at 66 Star Street was over. great book.
