I loved the first "Under the Duvet" and this is equally as good. It's great for dipping into, as each story is only a few pages long. And it's tremendously entertaining and funny to read. I also found a lot of experiences I could relate to (only too well!), which just adds to it's charm.
If you've read any of the novels by the same author, there are references to some of the books and you may recognise where some ideas may have come from.
The only downside is if you've read "Nothing bad ever happens at Tiffanys" or any of Marians columns in magazines you may have already read some of the articles (I recognised a few from Marie Claire). But this is only a small part of the book, and there is a lot of new material which still makes it a good buy.
Overall it's a great book, well worth the money. And you'll especially love it if you like shoes, sweets, fancy cosmetics ....
The book was slightly redeemed with the more serious articles that were in the middle of the book and the short stories at the end were nice but on the whole I didn't really enjoy this book and I feel that I can't recommend this book unless you are a big fan of Marian Keyes and even then, you may be disappointed if you are looking for the wit and warmth of her fictional books.
I loved Marian's fictional books and particularly The Mystery at Mercy Close helped me through a dark period of time but this just didn't work as a book for me. This book may work as a holiday read though as you can dip in and out of it and you don't need a long attention span either to enjoy each section of this book.
Irish story telling at its best.
