Has anyone read Marian Keyes? I have seen several of her books here, but have never read anything by her. What do you think of her?

I really enjoy her books and also have several I have read and have to read. I really enjoyed Sushi for Beginners. It was my first book of hers.

I've read The Other Side of the Story, Sushi for Beginners and Angels. I always enjoy her books. The stories seem so complete when I'm done.

I'm currently reading Under The Duvet.  It's a book full of articles she has written for magazines over the years.  I'm not a short story lover so usually a book like this would not be my cup of tea.  But this book has me laughing outloud (much to the amusement of my cats.)  I would definitely reccomend it.

Hey Jenn. I'm glad you posted that about Under the Duvet. Like you, I've never been a short story lover. But I'll have to give that one a try.

I have difficulty enjoying her writing style. I think the only one I could finish was Rachel's Holiday.  Her storylines sound intriguing but just so hard for me to get into.

I've read Watermelon, Sushi for beginners, Rachel's Holiday, and Angels.  Strong quirky and often funny characters.
