Review

The Break makes me laugh out loud (Tess Daly Sunday Express)

Amy's husband Hugh has run away to 'find himself'. But will he ever come back?

'Myself and Hugh . . . We're taking a break.'
'A city-with-fancy-food sort of break?'

If only.

(from the publisher's description)

The Break is Marian Keyes at her funniest, wisest, glorious best (Nina Stibbe)

The Break races along with Keyes' trademark energy, lightness of touch and plenty of laughs (Sunday Express)

Breathlessly entertaining (Connaught Telegraph)

Keyes writes extremely well about modern women. A breezy, candid and deeply felt account of a wife, mother and career woman rediscovering herself (Metro)

Girl-power at its best. I laughed . . . I cried (Sarah Lawrence Daily Mail)

Another belter. Full of brilliantly fun characters, genuine emotion and heaps of charm. We loved it!

(Heat)

A snappy narrator and a raucous cast of characters make The Break another classic from Marian Keyes (Sunday Express)

Classic Marian Keyes: a blizzard of wit and wisecracks. Mercilessly funny (The Times)

From the Inside Flap

'Myself and Hugh . . . We're taking a break.'
'A city-with-fancy-food sort of break?'

If only.

Amy's husband Hugh says he isn't leaving her.

He still loves her, he's just taking a break - from their marriage, their children and, most of all, from their life together. Six months to lose himself in south-east Asia. And there is nothing Amy can say or do about it.

Yes, it's a mid-life crisis, but let's be clear: a break isn't a break up - yet . . .

However, for Amy it's enough to send her - along with her extended family of gossips, misfits and troublemakers - teetering over the edge.

For a lot can happen in six-months. When Hugh returns if he returns, will he be the same man she married? And will Amy be the same woman?

Because if Hugh is on a break from their marriage, then isn't she?

The Break isn't a story about falling in love but about staying in love. It is Marian Keyes at her funniest, wisest and brilliant best.
