    Anyone else a fan? I love her stuff, esp the Walsh Family. I always relate to something a character is going through, gives u that great 'ahh its not just me' feeling.

    Ooh I've read A Charming Man! Must go out and buy some more of her books soon as I've read all mine! :D I always seem to read her books quickly too, must be because they're so enjoyable lol!

    Is it me or does anyone else hear her Irish accent in the characters lol? :confused::p

    I've seen quite a few of her books in Asda too and they're usually only about £4 each. :D:D I must admit I'm not over keen on second hand books, but only because of the possibility of paper fleas or missing pages - I'd hate to get through 200 pages only to find one missing! :sigh::rolleyes:

    OK I'm with you on feet. Clean or otherwise!

    But I love the library. They order books from other branches and it is there waiting for you. All for 50p. And the best thing is, I get to give them back! I don't mind buying from charity shops but then I'm not forced to give them back and they hang around cluttering up my flat!

    I usually discover authors I'd never bother trying with in charity shops. Sometimes I pick something up just cos I'm bored and end up hooked. The 2nd hand books have to be in exc condition tho, it gives me the creeps if they have marks on them...

    I'm getting through This Charming Man tho its not as un-put-down-able as her other stuff

    I have just read the book 'Is anyone out there' by Marian Keyes and loved it... Are the rest of her books as good?

    Definitely, in fact for me "is anyone out there" wasn't one of her best. I love the Walsh family. My favourites are probably Watermelon and Rachel's Holiday. Also like Last Chance Saloon and The Other Side of the Story.

    Not so keen on Angels or Sushi for Beginners. Haven't read This Charming Man yet - am on hols soon so will probably buy it at the airport.
