Happily this book has many of Marian Keyes' typical qualities that ensures I read everything she has published. I very quickly became involved with all the characters, for good or bad. And, satisfingly, in the end all the 'good' people find happiness in the end and the truely unlikeable character gets his just desserts. The original approach this novel takes involves a slightly supernatural/fairy-tale element in the back ground. A quick, easy and very enjoyable read, as always.

Owned a copy until I left it on the bus! Hooray for libraries, barely skipped a beat. Marian's novels are always bittersweet escapism and The Brightest Star delivers, with new, sparkling and often sharp-tongued characters.

I am a huge fan of Marian Keyes and avidly awaited, this, her latest novel but sadly this book did not match my expectations. What on earth has happened to the woman? Has she changed her editorial team? Has she lost the run of herself? The book was incredibly dull and boring and I struggled to become interested in any of the characters, perhaps because we are not permitted the opportunity to get to know anyone in any real depth. I really struggled to read this book and had to force myself, over many days to continue with it, each time with as much enthusiasm as a visit to the gynacologist, but frankly I would rather undergo a pap smear than read anything by Marion again ( )

If you think the plot summary sounds silly, ignore it. Marian Keyes, as usual, delivers great characters, drama, and humor. ( )

Not a good starting point for Keyes I guess. I have heard of Keyes but hadn't read her before. I wanted something a little lighter after my reading-palooza over the weekend. Unfortunately this wasn't it. Another review on Amazon says that this isn't the book to start with Keyes if you haven't read her before and I agree.
 
It's a weird premise. A spirit roams around the apartment building and observes the lives of the tenants. There's a taxi driver, a married coupon, an older woman and her foster son, a professional career woman, her boyfriend, etc. They all have their interesting lives and the spirit observes them all.
 
Yet, the book was pretty dark for a supposed "chick lit" author. Everything from a rape scene to a death at the end to mental illness. It's not light and fluffy. And while it was nice to see a chick lit novel address such topics, I'm not really sure if it was addressed really well. The author gives a highlighted thanks to the Dublin Rape Crisis Center which made me cringe a bit.
 
I suppose if you like your chick lit with a supernatural element this might not be a bad borrow from the library. But it might be uncomfortable/triggering for some and overall I didn't think it was a good book. And while sometimes I'm willing to give the author another shot if there's another book by them that sounds interesting, I'm not really sure I want to read anything else by Keyes. ( )
