The Break by Marian Keyes
Oh wow! Marian Keyes is back and with one very loud bang! Until recently Marian Keyes was an auto buy for me, she only had to write it for me to need it. Not sure if it was me or her (God forbid!) but I hadn’t loved her last few books.
However, Marian nails this story of a husband who decides to take a six month break from his marriage, not quite realising that this means his wife is on a break too. And he completely misses all the wider implications too.
This book will give you the squidgees, make you laugh, think about your own life and break your heart but maybe not in that order! Above all you’re going to be asking if you were Amy what would you have done?! Read it and ask yourself.
Personally, I think I would have kicked him hard somewhere and then chucked his stuff out the window. But then that would be a different book!
The Break needs to come with a warning – don’t read in public especially on the train! One minute I was laughing out loud and the next a tear was winding its way down my cheek. No one does extraordinarily ordinary characters like Marian.
A totally gorgeous read!! Just be prepared to ask all your girlfriends – what would you do?!
