Anybody Out There?
Anybody Out There? | Marian Keyes
9 posts | 38 read | 8 to read
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.

Anybody Out There? | Marian Keyes
Mehso-so

I‘m a firm believer in giving books a chance. Once I‘ve committed to reading even the first page I‘m in it for the long haul - I just have to finish! Unfortunately, for the first 300 odd pages of this book I was bored, bored and confused. The Irish-isms are not always easy to interpret, and the way the story unravelled was confusing. About half way through it finally started to make sense. The second half of the book makes it all worth while.

Fellow Spinecrackers, so I have been quiet for the last two years (life happened). Recently, I stumbled upon this account and was astonished by the amount of followers the group has gathered. It inspired me to basically revive the book club. Now the question is whether there would be any interest to activate the group again? Thoughts?

jpmcwisemorgan I could probably be convinced. 11mo

Wife Tell us about the book club please 🌹 11mo
TheSpinecrackersBookClub Thanks for all the responses. In the past the book club chose two books of the month to read. One book was a classic and the other could be any other novel (preferably a recent one). A few times a week the book club will post questions on the book or encourage conversation on the book. Members usually recommended a few books and then voting would take place to determine which would be the books of the month. 11mo

One of my favorite moments in this book. Anna's story is heartbreaking, and when this moment comes, the joy is so powerful. #currentlyreading

#ReadJanuary Day 3: #BookFace

I couldn't find any books that would come close to fitting a human-size face, so I had to enlist the help of Willow Rosenberg.

#happybirthday Marian Keyes. This woman has brought me so much joy over the years and yet she does dark so well. I usually tear through her books, giggling my head off like a deranged goose. Hooray to 21 years of reading so far... #happybirthday #writerbirthday #litsyfeature

LauraBeth I ❤️ her books 3y
EnidBiteEm @LauraBeth Have you read The Mystery at Mercy Close, where Keyes makes up names for paint colours? 😂😂 3y
LauraBeth I haven't @EnidBiteEm - headed to the library tomorrow so I'll have to check it out 😀 3y
EnidBiteEm @LauraBeth do! It's worth reading for that alone 😀 3y

If anybody needs a good laugh, this is the go-to book. I read this in a DAY ,I love it that much. (P.S I know the cover looks a bit off but I had to buy a secondhand copy as I couldn't find the original; it's readable so I can survive) 😂❤️😛
