Publisher's Summary

Lucy Sullivan is 26 and living it up (and occasionally down) in London. 

Hers is a life of quiet, undisciplined desperation. But when she and three friends visit a psychic for a bit of fun and the woman's predictions start coming true, Lucy is horrified. For the fortune-teller insisted she'd soon be married - within the year, in fact.Not only does Lucy not have a boyfriend, but the chances of getting one are looking slim. 

Between the bottles of wine, antidepressants and her addiction to self-help books, she's not quite ready to walk, or even stumble, down the aisle sober. Is Lucy's fate really written in the stars? Or will she finally take control of her own destiny?

Extremely annoying book

Honestly, I hated the story, the awful characters and the terrible accents of the narrator. I found this book grating and annoying and do not recommend it at all!

Very unlikeable characters

Marian Keyes is a great writer and has some wonderful turns of phrase with a lot of laugh out loud witty lines. She is however, also the queen of creating extremely unlikeable and annoying characters who are very difficult to feel anything for except repulsion and anger. The lead character in this book especially makes you just want to smack her in the head as she is so pathetically stupid and pitiful.

An Easy Listen

I've read a lot of this author. If you're a fan you'll probably enjoy it, it's easy to listen to and pretty funny as well.

17 hours I'll never get back

I have listened to all of Marian Keyes' books and was very excited when I saw this 'new' title pop up. Although it was recorded in 2019, the book was published in 1997. Basically, it's terrible. It is long, painful and poorly written. The main character is intensely annoying, with a breathtakingly huge lack of self awareness. The other characters are either lacklustre or just hard to like. It is totally cliched and predictable, with the outcome of the story obvious within the first few minutes. The narrator was average, and her Australian accent for one of the characters was woefully bad. I only continued to listen to this book as I am stubborn and bloody minded. When it finished, I actually exclaimed 'thank God it's over'. I really hope that Marian Keyes ' 2020 book, Grown Ups, is back to her usual high standard.

Another delightful story

After pushing past the bad Aussie accent, I really enjoyed the story. It was funny, relatable, and had a great message, and as always had a happy ending. Definitely worth the listen.

Amazing performance!

Amy McAllister’s ability to perform accents so well and to switch between them so breezily is amazing! Story is good but imagine it wouldn’t read as well as you can listen to it.

Brilliant Book, Well Narrated

As a longtime, die-hard fan of Marian Keyes, listening to her books as opposed to reading is always a bit anxiety-inducing at first. Although others have criticized the narrator, I thought she did an excellent job, with one exception. She is very talented with accents, producing flawless London (Cockney-ish), Scottish, Irish, Welsh, Yorkshire and even German! The only place she falls down is with Daniel. The character of Daniel, whilst being gentlemanly and kind, is also meant to be cool, saavy, good looking with a good job... and she makes him sound like a bumbling, goofy, uneducated half-wit - not Daniel at all - especially if you have read the book prior to listening. However, overall a very good performance.

Awful narration

Such A shame as it’s clearly not the narrator’s fault. However she was guided to speak with the most ridiculous accent as was Daniel. Quite a good story. Definitely not one of her best.

Warning this book is full of fat phobic language

I only listened to the first few chapters as one of the characters is continually fat shamed. This is not acceptable.
