  • A Family is a work-in-progress!

    This book was awesome honestly. It was long, but the writing was so good that at the end, I honestly didn't believe I was at the end. I seriously thought there was more. That there had to be more. Don't get me wrong, it didn't end on a cliffhanger or anything, but the characters live such dramatic and interesting lives that the end of a 650 page book was not enough for me. Anyway, I can definitely say with certainty that I am so happy to have read this book! I'd also like to thank the author for writing this book with such relatable characters, modern setting, and just touching on such relevant content. There were such intricate details that pass you by and they don't affect the bigger picture of the story, but they give the story a much deeper and enhanced flavor at the end. Regardless of how you feel about Jessie and Johnny, their parenting is actually quite good. I don't care much for the way Johnny regards his children or his step-children, but Jessie deals with her kids quite well, especially TJ who is non-binary and wants hairstyles and clothes and her name to reflect that and Jessie and Johnny do everything they can to support her wishes. The speech that Ferdia made with Perla was so important, so woke, so necessary, and just so amazing. Honestly, as much as these characters annoyed me, they also grew and learned and got better and did better for themselves and for others and in the end, the bow wasn't tied all nice and pretty, their lives will keep going because that's what happens in reality. All we got to see was a snapshot of their lives, the before and the after, and we got to see them change over time. It wasn't all happy endings, but it was satisfying in a wistful way. Like you can imagine a better ending or continuation for the characters and nothing is closed off. To end this review of this awesome book: I'd just like to say, I'm so happy I got to read this, I know it will be very very popular I'm sure, and if there was a show or movie made on it, I might not even be able to watch because of second-hand embarrassment, but I hope it does get made into something in order for more people to know these characters and their crazy stories and fall in love with the family much like I have! *Thank you to the publishers; Penguin Random House Canada, and the author; Marian Keyes, for my free copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.

  • Grown Ups is Marian Keyes at her best.

    I love Marian Keyes! Her dysfunctional Irish family stories are compulsive reading. This extended family is more dysfunctional than most. The story weaves seamlessly from present to past and starts at the end and works it's way forward. Cleverly done. The main characters are very flawed and even the 'bit' players are well written and sympathetic. A great read!

  • A very enjoyable book.

    Really enjoyed this story and all of the characters. Also liked how she started at the end and then took you back to see how they got there.

  • Thumbs up

    I really enjoyed this. I have read several of Marian Keyes books and this did not disappoint. I slowly became invested and cared about the characters as the stories of their lives unfolded. I definitely recommend it.
