Can you relate to a character whose boss at work tells her how she should have her hair cut, and she responds as though this is appropriate behaviour? Would you pay to have a tarot card reader predict your future? Do you think people's appearance is the most important aspect of their life? Would you feel at home in the women's makeup industry? Then this is the book for you! I started this book thinking that it was going to deal seriously with the subject of death and grieving, but alas, it does not. I'm embarrassed to say that I read to nearly half way before I gave up. In my defence, I had read a particularly gloomy book just previously and was in need of somewhat lighter reading. This is certainly lighter. In fact, if it was any lighter it would be a complete vacuum. As it is, it's just vacuous. ( )

I loved this book so much. I have always enjoyed all of the books I have ever read by this author but this one was definitely the best. I was reading along, thinking I knew what was happening. Them WHAM !!! Part 2 and nothing was how I had thought at all. Totally blew me away. WOW!! I wasn't expecting that at all. I laughed, I cried. I loved this book soooooo much. ( )

I felt a little betrayed when I finally got the whole plot reveal -- I had assumed the book was going in one direction, and then WHAM...it became a book I totally didn't expect and was a little more serious than I was really looking for in an escape read. I guess it could be my fault for coming in with too many assumptions/expectations, but there is a big open ended question that doesn't get resolved until about halfway through! ( )

This was the BEST Marian Keyes book I've read. (I've only read a few of them so far.) It took me a bit to actually get into the book, but once it picked up it kept my interest! There was always something going on, whether in her work like, family life, or personal life. I don't give too many books 5*, and it's not like this book was earth shattering, but it was a book I really enjoyed reading and kept my interest throughout. Like most of Marian Keyes characters, you feel like you get to know them which makes the story that much more enjoyable. I definitely recommend this book for an easy, interesting, light beach read...afterall, that's where I finished reading it!! ( )

An emotionally moving story that lives up to the cliche of making you laugh and making you cry at the same time.

This is also probably one of those cases where you will get a stronger reaction to this book book, the less you know about it, as it was in my case.

So you'll just have to take my word for it... ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061240850, Paperback)

Bestselling author Marian Keyes has delighted readers with the lives, loves, and foibles of the irrepressible Walsh sisters and their eccentric mammy. In this Life in the Big Apple is perfect for Anna. She has the best job in the world, a lovely apartment, and great friends. Then one morning, she wakes up in her mammy's house in Dublin with stitches in her face, a dislocated knee, hands smashed up, and no memory at all of what happened. As soon as she's able, Anna's flying back to Manhattan, mystified but determined to find out how her life turned upside down. As her past slowly begins coming back to her, she sets out on an outrageous quest—involving lilies, psychics, mediums, and anyone who can point her in the right direction.

Marrying life's darker bits with wild humor and tender wit, Anybody Out There? is a strange and wonderfully charming look at love here and ever after.
