Anybody Out There? - Marian Keyes ... mightn't be there but I had to give it a go because there was one thing I was certain of: he wasn't here. Anna Walsh is officially a wreck. Physically broken and emotionally shattered, she lies on her parents' Dublin sofa with only one thing on her mind: getting back to New York. New York means her best friends, 'the most fabulous job in the world' and above all, it means her husband, Aidan. But nothing in Anna's life is that simple anymore. Not only is her return to Manhattan complicated by her physical and emotional scars, but also Aidan seems to have vanished. Is it time for Anna to move on? Is it even possible for her to move on? A motley group of misfits, an earth-shattering revelation, two births and one very weird wedding might help Anna find some answers - and will change her life forever. Hilarious, heartbreaking and life-affirming, Marian's unforgettable new novel is as epic as it is entertaining.

As a lover of chick lit, Marian Keyes is one of my favourite authors and she rarely -if ever- disappoints when it comes to creating an engaging and easy to read piece of fiction. 'Anybody Out There' is the fourth in a series featuring the Walsh sisters and the unforgettable 'Ma Walsh'. Having read several others from the series and fell in love with the Walsh sisters, flaws and all, somehow I managed to overlook this particular book and just happened upon it by chance in a charity shop. The central character of this story is Anna Walsh, although the rest of the family feature at various points throughout the story, particularly Anna's parents and eccentric ...

So while in a lecture on my MA course, I made the mistake of saying I thought Chick Lit would be a waste of time for me to read. A fellow student took it upon herself to re-educate me, beginning with Marian Keyes 'Anybody Out There'. She insisted she would pay me a fiver if I read the whole thing and that she would be testing me so I wouldn't be able to cheat! I tried to refuse when I saw the little shiny butterflies on the cover and read the blurb on the back, but she was quite forceful. So I read it, somewhat begrudgingly and initially found many of the literary techniques used really obvious. For example constantly withholding information, thus making you ...

Marian Keyes tend to write easy reading books with a touch of humour and a moral/emotional twist. The characters here are easy to compare to people you really know (particularly the errant sisters). Anna, the central character was a little hard to grasp at first but became easier to understand as the book continued. Everyone knows what it's like to be trying to get in touch with someone, but this is taken to the extreme. You almost feel frustrated for her and you can't help but feel sorry for her and she gets no response and starts feeling more angsty and dejected by the page. Her entire fabulous New York life (the one everyone wants), is ... Read the complete review

I've got two words for this book - absolutely fabulous. As soon as you see Marian Keyes name you expect that it's going to be her famous brand of wacky Irish comedy mixed with some serious soul searching and this book definitely did not disappoint. There's a fair bit of mystery surrounding the situation the main character finds herself in at the beginning of the book and you're led to believe certain things that turn out to be incredibly wrong, but Marian Keyes does this so well that when she reveals the truth you're gobsmacked. I have to admit I howled with tears when I read those pages - no book has ever moved me that much before. Keyes has a certain way of ... Read the complete review
