9780060086244: Last Chance Saloon

Tara, Katherine and Fintan have been friends since they were teenagers in Knockaway, County Clare, in the days of legwarmers, pink stretch jeans and Duran Duran. Now in their early 30s, they live in London where they are still bound together. But fate is about to step in and alter their lives.

Review:

Author of the hugely popular Rachel's Holiday and Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married, Marian Keyes is back swinging the doors of heartache and hilarity with Last Chance Saloon. Meet Tara, the rapidly expanding food-loving shopaholic; Katherine, the neat, male-ego-destroying singleton; Fintan, the fashion-conscious lovely, and Lorcan, the gorgeous but rotten redheaded womaniser. Marian Keyes deliberately deploys stereotypical characters and situations, then attempts to subvert the stereotypes, though perhaps in rather obvious ways.

Throughout, Tara bores us with her lament that she is at the last chance saloon, meaning that if she ends her current relationship at 31, she's on the shelf for life. "For the first time Tara visualised it and she contracted with fear. It was like being told to jump off a cliff ... "But what would become of me without Thomas? I'd never get anyone else and I hate not having a man. And it's not something I'm proud of" she added quickly. "I'm going to puke", Fintan interrupted, urgently." Those who can resist the urge to follow Fintan's lead on the umpteenth rendition of this particular complaint will enjoy the book.

It's addictive--reading The Last Chance Saloon is like watching the omnibus edition of Sunset Beach; you know the acting is awful and the same scenes keep on repeating themselves but you can't help being hooked and feeling sated afterwards. At almost 600 pages, settle down for a Saturday afternoon and don't expect to be getting up again until Sunday. --Nicola Perry

Book Description HarperCollins, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 168 x 104 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Ever since legwarmers were cool, best friends Tara, Katherine, and Fintan have survived small-town ennui, big-city heartbreak, and endless giddy nights out on the town. But now that they ve graduated to their slightly more serious thirties, only Fintan has what can honestly be called a love life. With Tara struggling daily with her eternal diet--and her dreadful, penny-pinching boyfriend--and Katherine keeping her single existence as organized as her drawer full of matching bra and panty sets, it seems they ll never locate the exit door out of the last chance saloon. But it s always when you are least ready for change that fate insists on one. And when catastrophe inevitably follows crisis, the lives of three best friends are sure to change in unexpected ways . and not necessarily for the worse. You devoured the hilarious antics of Claire in Watermelon. You laughed til you cried in Lucy Sullivan Is Getting Married. You took a vacation gone mad in Rachel s Holiday. You flew away with Margaret--good girl gone bad--in Angels. You got a peek inside the cutthroat world of women s fashion magazines in Sushi for Beginners. Now, raise your glass to Tara, Katherine, and Fintan in Last Chance Saloon. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780060086244
