Welcome to the magnificent Making It Up as I Go Along – aka the World According to Marian Keyes™ – A bold, brilliant book bursting with Marian’s hilarious and heartfelt observations on modern life, love and much, much else besides.
Such as? you are determined to ask.
Well, how about her guide to breaking up with your hairdresser? Or the warning she has for us all after a particularly traumatic fling with fake tan. There’s the pure and bounteous joy of the nail varnish museum. Not to mention the very best lies to tell if you find yourself on an Artic Cruise. She has words of advice for those fast approaching fifty. And she’s here to tell you the secret secret truth about writers – well, this one anyway.
This book is a wonderfully, refreshing insight to Marian Keyes and her life. I really felt like I got to know Marian and himself (Marian’s husband) whilst reading this book.
I loved how Marian gave her honest opinion on everything she wrote about – especially the hairdressers part and how to break up with your hairdresser. Marian hit the nail on the head when she wrote about how “hair saloons are snakepits, hotbeds of bitchiness” , I used to work in a hair salon and was glad to escape.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading all about the places Marian had travelled to, I now want to go on an Artic Cruise.
This book is like an autobiography but without the boring bits , you know the parts of an autobiography about the persons family history – that if truth be told you skip those parts because you only want to read about the author. I highly recommend this and would like to thank Net Galley and Penguin Uk for giving me the chance to read and review it.
