Yet another Marian Keyes winner!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Angels (Hardcover)
I am an avid reader of Marian Keyes' novels, and received Angels as a birthday gift back in June. In fact, Ms. Keyes was reading from "Angels" in my neighborhood bookstore here in the USA, but I had just had surgery and couldn't attend.
Angels just might be my new favorite Keyes book! I laughed the entire way through the book....but then, before I knew it, I was actually crying while reading along too. Keyes' books are always light-hearted, yet based in reality, and offer some heart-felt poignent moments that have her characters baring their innermost souls. At the same time, Keyes has a wonderful ability to play on the "transplanted" characters, whether they are from Ireland and plopped down smack in the middle of Los Angeles, or they have a steady career and find themselves suddenly sacked without a job at all, or being wonderfully married only to be suddenly single, etc.
Angels captures the superficial soul of Hollywood and LA VERY accurately, with her usual wit and honest observations. And in the meantime, the novel is filled with characters that you want to keep reading about! Well done Ms. Keyes!
