I am not generally a chic lit kind of girl, but this book is really good. It is a perfect book to read on a rainy Saturday afternoon while eating a big bowl of ice cream. When I read this one, I couldn't put it down. I would recommend to anyone of the female persuasion who has ever felt fat, ugly, hopeless, tired, or any of 100 other negative emotions. You will be able to relate because Keyes style is very personal and easy to identify with.
This book started off good and it got my attention right away, then it sort of slowed down and I was getting bored, but then BOOM!! It just started to get soooo good once again and I couldn't put it down. I loved the way the book was written. I will continue to read the other books about the "Walsh" sisters!
I have completely fallen in love with Marian Keyes's writing style! Watermelon is about Claire, a young mom of 29, and what happens to her after her husband abandons her and their newborn baby. Keyes manages to take a weighty topic and add just enough humor to keep if from being depressing but not so much that she dismisses the gravity of what happened to Claire. Watermelon is all about Claire learning to live again and figuring out what she really wants in life. The ending is so sweet and unexpected. If you like Sophie Kinsella, you'll like Marian Keyes.
Veeeeery addicting. I was lugging this around to work and all over the house. I loved it! I love most of her books.
This is the first book I've read by Marian Keyes and I really enjoyed it. I could really relate to a lot of the things that Claire was feeling as far as being confused about her husband who cheated on her and the new guy she finds in her life. It was very witty and funny. The ending was something different than I expected, but I was still pleased with how things turned out. I'd highly recommend this book. =)
