Not the brightest star after all...,
This review is from: The Brightest Star in the Sky (Hardcover)
Having read through the reviews, I must agree the book is'not-as-good-as-her-previous-novels' as so many of you have said. To be concise, it was not as funny, not as touching and frankly, many of the references and jokes just didn't do it for me. It felt a bit forced; also, the dog that talks/thinks is just weird and really put me off.
I am a huge fan of Marian Keyes and all her books though; I love re-reading them but unfortunately this one will not be at the top of my list.
Nevertheless, I did enjoy reading this one which is why I gave it three stars- it surpasses most other 'chick lit' books out there. I already can't wait until the next book comes out, whenever that may be!
