You'll be wincing in recognition and scratching your head in incredulity, but like Marian herself you won't be able to stop laughing at the sheer delightful absurdity that is modern life - because each and every one of us is clearly making it up as we go along. She has wonderful and tickling words of advice for those fast approaching 50.

"When it comes to writing page-turners that put a smile on your face and make you think, Keyes is in a class of her own." (Daily Express)
I really enjoyed this book, I found it to be very funny and insightful at the same time. I wish it would have gone on longer. The narration was excellent, I forgot that I wasn't listening to Marian herself.
Entertaining. Great titlle. Thats what most atracted me to purchase. I have to say it listens more like a partial memoir. And yes Marian, it does seem you are constantly on a holiday.
I felt it ended a little abruptly but will listen to it again and look forward to listening to more from Marian Keynes x
Spot on with the accent and delivery - could have been the author reading her own book.
Laugh out load comments that we can all relate to
Narration was fantastic. Felt like I was sat having a brew with Marian
Listening to the tales of the chemist and the games Marian and her Mammy play.
So many parts of this I could relate to. Love how she refers to her husband as "himself" all the way through. Again the narrating was amazing. Such depth and quality.
"HONEST! FUNNY! INSPIRING!"
honest! Funny! Inspiring!
I could relate to most of it!
views on womens rights
Hope Marian is at peace with herself! She should be Very proud of her achievements x
Several of the early chapters are pretty funny. Some are, well, a bit silly, and not in a good way! A couple, are a little boring. The best chapters are where Keyes writes seriously about depression, addiction and womens issues. The narration is excellent.
It was OK, but was far too long, it did seem to go on for ever. .Not the best book I have read
"Brilliant as Always!"
Loved it as with all of Marians books. hilariously honest. I hope for more autobiographical works in the future.
Another lovely Keyes book to read, but even better to listen to. Eoife brings it alive.
"laugh out loud funny "

"Hilarious!!! Interesting insight into my fav author and"
