Since I'm 62 years old, Ms. Keyes is obviously not writing to me or my contemporaries in any of her novels. But every single one of her books makes me feel as if she wrote it just for me! Yes, she certainly is that good! And this book is no exception! In some ways, I think there is a little bit of Lucy in all of us. Her "story" is a true triumph! Please - don't just read this book - read everything this wonderful author has written because she has alot to say - and she says it well!

This is not my favorite book by Marian Keyes but it is a good read nonetheless. It is definitely engaging and you will zip right through it. Lucy Sullivan is a charming, if slightly transparent, main character.

This book was not my cup of tea. I find it difficult to read a book that has lot of characters with names that are similar to each other. I have trouble keeping them straight in my mind. This often leaves me feeling confused when I'm reading and I find myself having to read passages over again. I also did not really understand the "friendship" that the woman shared. So, they worked in the same office....does that mean they have to be friends? But like I said at the beginning of this review...not my cup of tea.

This novel is about a woman who visits a fortune teller and is predicted to get married in the near future. Of course, antics ensue as she looks for the perfect guy. The novel stalled out for me around the point where she meets a guy named Gus and they begin a romance. I just didn't like his character. The book could have been shorter if some of the interaction with Gus would have been cut out. It was just all right.

A very long book. It is evident in the beginning (atleast it was to me) who Lucy was going to end up with. The book seemed to drag on and on.

This is another classic Marian Keyes. Very long, but hard to put down. There were times that I got so angry at the main character, but I think I can understand her issues! Definately a good read!

I've read this book twice now and have really enjoyed it. Characters that most of us can identify with going through the usual dating rituals and insecurities. Lots of laughs.

Lucy looks in the mirror and sees "loser" - not as tall, not as blonde, not as busty as her two roommates. Not as lucky in love either, as she attracts and is attracted to losers again and again. That's why the tarot card reading promising imminent marriage is so unbelievable! But is it?

Clever characterizations, long story with fairly predictable outcome, but still nicely done.

Classic Marian Keyes; not quite as good as Rachel's Holiday, but more developed than Watermelon. The story starts off slow, perhaps in part because of the large cast of characters - main character Lucy, her three (then four) coworkers, two roommates, two male friends, and family. However, it picks up steam as soon as she meets Gus (about a fifth of the way in) and remains delightful to the end. Like most chick lit, you can predict the conclusion, but it's an enjoyable ride while you do.

This was my first Marian Keyes read and I was not disappointed. Although predictable at times, you still want to keep reading so that you can confirm your suspicions. I then went on to read Sushi for Begginers and that too was great.

I really like Marian Keyes'novels, but this one just wasn't as good as her others. I found the main character, Lucy, to be annoying and I wanted to smack her about 3 chapters into it. Since I have to finish any book that I start, I did finish this one. I liked the last 1/4 of the book, but the first 3/4 were hard to get through.

Lucy Sullivan fancies herself simultaneously miserable and happy. A 26-year-old Londoner, Lucy is the kind of woman who thinks that any man who's decent to her must be Mr. Wrong. But when she visits a fortune-teller with a trio of mismatched friends, a marriage is predicted for the near future. When the fortune-teller's prophecies for the other three come true in peculiar ways, even disbelieving, boyfriendless Lucy begins to suspect that, somehow, wedding bells will ring for her. there are many eligible bachelors on the scene, among them Gus, Lucy's sexy but unreliable new lover; Daniel, her oldest friend; Chuck, a handsome American; and Adrian, the video shop man. The attendant mayhem includes drunken meals at ethnic restaurants, flamenco dancing accidents, blind dates gone wrong and many delicious confessions and revelations. As Lucy says, "I was still at that stage in my life when I thought that weekdays were for recovering from the weekend," but more often than not, her weekdays are as full of exhausting fun as her weekends. Fans of Bridget Jones will be delighted.

Like many of the author's books, there is much more going on under the surface of the characters' adventures, making this amusing and thought-provoking at the same time.

Formulaic (there are two guys that Lucy doesn't like at the beginning of the book, and you just know she'll end up with one of them), but I still couldn't put this book down. I read it all in one day, even though it's 610 pages. Lucy & her friends are the kind of people I'd love to drink with after work.

From Publishers Weekly
Lucy Sullivan, the eponymous heroine of Irish writer Keyes's second offbeat romantic comedy to be published in the U.S. (after Watermelon), fancies herself simultaneously miserable and happy. A 26-year-old Londoner, Lucy is the kind of woman who thinks that any man who's decent to her must be Mr. Wrong. But when she visits a fortune-teller with a trio of mismatched friends, a marriage is predicted for the near future. When the fortune-teller's prophecies for the other three come true in peculiar ways, even disbelieving, boyfriendless Lucy begins to suspect that, somehow, wedding bells will ring for her. The identity of the lucky man will come as no surprise, though Lucy remains oblivious until the very end, but there are many eligible bachelors on the scene, among them Gus, Lucy's sexy but unreliable new lover; Daniel, her oldest friend; Chuck, a handsome American; and Adrian, the video shop man. The attendant mayhem includes drunken meals at ethnic restaurants, flamenco dancing accidents, blind dates gone wrong and many delicious confessions and revelations. As Lucy says, "I was still at that stage in my life when I thought that weekdays were for recovering from the weekend," but more often than not, her weekdays are as full of exhausting fun as her weekends. Surprisingly for a comic novel, the book also takes on the serious themes of clinical depression and alcoholism, handling both with sensitivity and humor. Throughout, the effervescent narrative is fueled by witty repartee; though its outcome may be predictable, its sentiments are heartfelt, and its progress is sprightly. Fans of Bridget Jones will be delighted.
