Another top read from Marian Keyes!,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Other Side of the Story (Paperback)
Having previously read all of Keyes' other books (Rachel's Holiday, Sushi for Beginners, Watermelon etc) I was looking forward to reading this new offering and I was not disappointed. The story is set in the world of publishing and is told from the viewpoints of the three main characters. First there is Gemma, a Dublin-based party planner whose father has just walked out on her mother. Left to pick up the pieces she decides to write a novel on the subject. By doing this she hopes to upstage Lily, the girl who stole Gemma's one true love and has just published her own successful book. Gemma plans to send her book to JoJo, Lily's agent who is having an affair with her boss. The three stories come together brilliantly in what I found to be a hilarious and enjoyable book.
