Anybody Out There?

Anybody Out There?Marian Keyes

The latest installment in the Walsh family soap-opera is a doozy. Anna, the youngest Walsh girl (the spacy-new age one) gets her act together with the help of her brother-in-law Garv and moves to New York to work in marketing. The story picks up with Anna back in Ireland -recovering with a torn kneecap and a cut up face. Slowly the story reveals where the injuries come from, what the picture is that shows up in her mailbox, where her mysterious man Aidan has gone and why the strange woman keeps encouraging her dog to poop on the Walsh’s yard. All of Keyes’s books are excellent and engulfing. This is by far the biggest tear-jerker, but also funny and uplifting. The rest of the cast swings through, of course – the Walsh’s, assorted friends, and The Real Men. I’d highly recommend reading the series from the start, as there are some giveaways. However, if you do start here you will soon find yourself getting the rest of the series to see how they could have possibly ended up where they did. I’m looking forward to the next book already. Good stuff.
