    I'm in the first couple pages, and can't wait to read more already. I love Keyes. She's had a couple little missteps, in decidedly subjective opinion. This though, has had me thinking all day! That's always a good sign. Some of the content was painfully familair to me, but amazing in ...

    This book almost does something very interesting for chick lit: the main character, an Irish woman whose marriage is coming apart, comes to L.A. to escape from it all. She is shocked?shocked!?to discover that the old friend she's staying with has another friend who's a lesbian. The...

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but I just cannot get into this book. I've been plugging away for days and days, I'm only like 1/3 of the way through, and I am just not interested. This doesn't seem as fun as the other Walsh family books. ...

    Disappointing. I have loved other Keyes novels, but this one is SLOW. Nothing happens, nothing happens, nothing happens for FAR too long, mostly because the main character doesn't want anything, so she's not trying to do anything, so you get endless descriptions of her pointless days o...

    Oh chicklit, how I miss thee. Although this chicklit wasn't all light and fluffy, it actually dealt with some serious issues that made me tear up as I read it. The protagonist is hilarious, her adventures in LA awesome. Although I must say I found it really annoying that every other pe...

    Marian Keyes is one of my favorite authors. At first glance her novels appear to be "chick-lit" but once you start reading them, you realize there is a thoughtful depth to them. Sometimes it takes well into the novel for the true subject to be revealed, but it it always entertaining, a...

    okay, i started reading this book and i thought it was AWFUL! i got to chapter 5 and it was getting more awful! I don't seem to ever do this, but I quit reading the book and returned it to the library. it just wasn't worth my time. i don't know if it was because i hadn't read any of th...

    I consider Angels the best book Marian Keyes has ever written (although I havent yet read all her books). Maggie is clearly the most sympathetic of the Walsh-sisters. I also think that Angels deals with wider themes. Maggie's problem isnt really low self-esteem, like Claire's and Rache...

    It took almost a year to read this one. The beginning is nice enough, and funny enough, but then gets dull really quick. From the moment Maggie arrives in LA the plot staggers. It's just much of the same for far too long. So I put it down. I picked it back up about a week ago, and sped...

    Marian Keyes' style of writing needs getting used to. She writes in a very un-Sophie Kinsella way (which is what I'm used to). This is my first time to read a book by her and I'm impressed. She writes nonsense things with depths. I don't know if that makes any sense but I think, for th...

    I have been given a big pile of books from my step mum, many of which are Marian Keyes. A few years ago I read a few Marian Keyes books and I couldn?t remember which ones I had read from the blurb on the back? Probably not a good sign. I am also not a huge fan of ?chick lit?. ...

    Keyes strikes again! I think I am getting to the end of her books and I can?t say I am unhappy about it. She continues to write about another daughter in the same family and the only daughter I have left is the youngest, most annoying one and I hope she hasn?t written a book featur...

    This book drove me insane and maybe that's why it took me two weeks to read such an easy novel. I wanted to SLAP Maggie, the supposed "heroine" and I didn't relate to her at all. I couldn't stand how she bounced from one extreme to the other with reactions and emotions. I wanted to sla...

    This was an emotional rollercoaster ride back with the Walsh family, this time going on Maggie's startling journey. Marian Keyes manages to delve deeply into some pretty hard life events, but she finds the humour in it too which takes the edge off and you realise that it's possible to ...

    And my love affair with Marian Keyes continues to thrive, in spite of my distaste for chick lit as a genre. This isn't the most thrilling or emotionally moving of her books - when you're writing about the serious, dull, well-behaved member of a family of genial cuckoos, it's hard to...

    This was not my favorite Marian Keyes book. I have read "Watermelon" and "Anybody Out There" and I liked these books waaaay more. I found "Angels" a bit boring. I skimmed several pages looking for anything interesting. Some of the parts were good but some parts I just couldn't stand. I...

    I would recommend reading any of Marian Keyes books. Angels is no exception. It's fun, irreverent, witty and tells a few home truths in Marian Keye's typical dry, Irish and magnificent way. ...

    Plain yoghurt at room temperature.. That's how the sisters describe Maggie the protagonist, and it describes how I felt about the book and the characters. The book is quit slow in my opinion. I found the characters a bit bland, which is a surprise because I used to like the Walsh f...

    The third book in the series about the Welsh family tells the story of when Maggie, 'the sensible and responsible one' arrives at a turning point in her life. The characterization is great as ever and Keyes writing is superb and inimitable. ...

    I hated this book so much words can barely describe it. I have always rated Marian Keyes books very highly in the past, and have loved other books in the Walsh family companion series, but I don't know if this book was an exception or if I read the others too long ago to really remembe...

    It's a shame Marian Keyes is marketed as an author of fluff because most of her books explore women's lives and traumas with warmth and humour. The only reason this gets 3 instead of 5 stars is my brain automatically rejects any book set in Hollywood where the majority of characters ar...

    These books are the equivalent of ice cream or popcorn, and yet they run deeper than that On the surface they seem like nothing more than simple easy fluff. But they tackle some pretty hard hitting topics in that fluff. I actually had managed to miss this book somehow but I'm so gla...

    ?Plain yogurt at room temperature? is how Margaret ?Maggie? Walsh?s family describes her. Then everything starts to fall apart in her life and she leaves her husband in Ireland to go to L.A where her best friend Emily lives. I loved this book because it explored love and some...

    I hated it. I hated the way she wrote as it wasn't challenging in anyway. I hated the storyline as it was predictable and made me fall asleep. I hated her characters they were so boring bland and the same as any other basic characters. The main reason I hated it was for the meaning...

    3.5?s Angels is a light, humorous chick lit novel, which entertained me a lot. Following the break-up of her nine year marriage to Garv, Dublin resident Maggie Walsh jets off to Los Angeles to spend some time with her friend Emily O'Keeffe. Emily, a talented script writer, has been ...
