5.0 out of 5 stars Best Ever Marian Keyes Novel!, 13 Aug 2004
This review is from: Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married (Paperback)
If there is one writer i can always rely on to uplift my mood, and defeat my ever growing bordem; then it's Marian Keyes. I had previously read "Watermelon"; "Rachel's Holiday"; "Angels"; "Last Chance Saloon" and "Sushi For Beginners". When I picked up "Lucy Sullivan Is Gettin Married", it sent my imagination into a whirlwind, and i found myself laughing and crying my way through every chapter.
The introduction to the book gripped me, it felt so down to earth and i attached myself to the characters lives straight away. I swear that this would make a fantastic TV drama! Marian Keyes' main characters always seem to take on the same roles. Lucy Sullivan is a very sarcastic and empty person to start with, much like Rachel in "Rachel's Holiday".
The story follows Lucy and her work mates visiting Mrs Nolan, a psychic. She tells Lucy that by the end of the year she will be married. Rumurs fly all over the place that Lucy is engaged, and she finds herself being harrassed by her tight, bitter and fussy mother; Her drunken, bed wetting father and her loud, self obsessed and big breasted flatmates. Lucy's family put the dysfunctional in dysfunctional!
Will she end up with Chuck, the rather abnoctious American who claims he doesn't drink? Jed the new guy at work? Gus, the most unreliable, untrustworthy get gorgeous bloke breathing? Or plain old Daniel? It may not sound very exciting now, but once you've started reading it, you'll be holding on for dear life to the book! Marian Keyes portray's Lucy's character as slightly depressed, well maybe a bit more then slightly! I felt there was a lot of reality and personal references from the writer whilst she desribed these scenes of depression.
Overall this book is the best thing since chocolate covered honey comb! And that is very hard to come by! The chapters are kept short for half wits like myself, but the book was quite hefty, sounds like a bad thing i know, but after reaching the last page, i wouldn't have minded it going on for another 1000 pages!
