9780099489993: Lucy Sullivan Is Getting Married

When Lucy Sullivan is dragged by her friends to visit a psychic, she thinks it will be a bit of a laugh. She doesn't believe for one second that the prediction will come true; there's just no way that she will be married within the year!

In fact Lucy doesn't even have a boyfriend.

But then she meets gorgeous but unreliable Gus. And the handsome Chuck. Oh and there's Daniel, the world's biggest flirt. And even cute Jed, the new guy at work.

Is it written in the stars? Or will Lucy finally take control of her own destiny and find the perfect man?

Review:

Lucy Sullivan is your basic fun-loving type of gal, so when her coworkers suggest a trip to the fortune teller, she goes along for the ride. Since Lucy is less than impressed by the rather pedestrian psychic, Mrs. Nolan, she doesn't give much credit to the prediction of a marriage in her near future. But when the fortunes of her friends come true, she begins to consider her male companions with a new eye.

The gorgeous Gus has potential, if he can overcome his aptitude for imbibing and his reliance on the dole. Jed, the fresh new employee at work, has his charms--and a healthy sense of co-dependency. And of course there's always Daniel, a reliable friend with a wicked sense of humour and a devilish history with women.

But before Lucy can start picking out China patterns, she needs to sort out her feelings for the first man in her life, her father. Though Lucy has always seen her father as good-hearted and fun-spirited, Lucy's mother has endured decades of his unpredictability and alcoholism with lessening patience. When her mother leaves him, Lucy steps in where her mother left off--and learns some hard lessons about relationships and responsibility.

Like Nick Hornby and Helen Fielding, Marian Keyes uses complementary touches of humour and humanity to capture the essence of singlehood in modern London. Keyes's sharp dialogue and the rich, internal development of her characters will both entertain and inspire singletons everywhere--from office gossip and erratic roommates ("I wouldn't have liked to live in her head, it must have been a dark, lonely, frightening place. You could walk for miles and miles without meeting a single intelligent thought.") to bizarre blind dates and bittersweet realisations, Lucy Sullivan Is Getting Married is a grand success. --Nancy R E O'Brien

Review:
