I loved it.

Compulsively good listening. - The characters are believable and multifaceted and the conclusion satisfying. I believe this is read by the author and she has a lovely expressive voice. BRB going to get more Marian Keyes.

hard to follow

this story has a large cast, and with Irish names and the narration does not help one bit to differentiate one person from the other

Confusing

There was some really good humour parts, but overall a lot of characters and because the narrator didn’t change her way of talking at all, it ended up pretty confusing.

Great characters

Keyes has an uncanny ability to develop the most wonderful characters and plots. Her own narration is a special treat here. Our entire Bookclub loved it. As always she centres around a more serious issue with lots of interest, humour and authentic interweavings between characters lives. Keyes is the best.

Amazing book, amazing narration

I knew almost nothing about this author or story when I began listening to the book and honestly I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s easy to listen to, but it isn’t frivolous and it’s interesting while still being relatable. The author intertwined real life issues without you even realizing in a way that is extremely laudable.

I’m really looking forward to reading/listening to more of her work

What a pleasure!

I’ve enjoyed several of Marian Keyes’ books before Grown Ups, but this is my new favourite. I did not seek the book because Marian was narrating, but very much enjoyed her performance of her work. Her accent, turn of phrase and pervasive humour were ear-candy that kept me laughing out loud. The characters are realistically flawed, struggling as we all do, with relationships and self-understanding.
Thanks, Marian Keyes, for this most entertaining listen.

POOR NARRATION

I feel if this book was read by another narrator the story and the people in it might have been a lot easier to follow. There were times when you could even hear her pause , swallow and then carry on. It was as if she had lost her place. If it wasn’t so monotone it might have been quite funny in parts.

Sadly Disappointing

I was excited to see this new book as I have enjoyed all of them. This story was weak I kept waiting for it to go somewhere and it never did. The characters were not likeable and sorry to say the narration was distracting. This won’t put me off of future novels as not everyone hits a homer every time

My bookclub liked it more than i did....

a LOT of flipping between stories lines/characters....which was fine...I just couldn't get into it and care about the characters as much as I would have wanted....I kind of found them all sort of unlikeable...seemed long to me....and at the end i listened to it at 1.2x speed just to get through it.....

Such an entertaining read!!

Thank you Marian Keyes for being such a brilliant storyteller and for the development and detail of all your characters. So intimate, honest, funny, sad, relateable. Loved Grown ups!

More actors, less authors

I absolutely adore Keyes' writing, but I don't think she should read her own stories. It was very hard to follow the dialogues and the storyline. I got confused about whether a new paragraph was starting.
I really appreciate the portrayal of a certain mental illness - it seems very accurate. However, I think there were just a bit too many characters in this book: This made the plot almost impossible to follow in the beginning and I feel like some could only be portrayed superficially.

Hm...

I like Marian Keyes in interviews and youtube videos and really enjoyed some of her previous books, so I have been looking forward to this one for a while. Now that I am finished after seventeen hours I am left with very mixed feelings. I don’t want to give spoilers, so I won’t elaborate on my disappointment, but, oh well, I didn’t like the ending of the one relationship I cared about and found some excessively elaborate descriptions and character arcs really dissatisfying. That said, the book is an easy listen and the many hours pass quickly.

Brought me to tears

I have read all of Marian Keyes books. They remind me of a time in my life in my twenties when I met and became friends with let’s just call her Jo. She would often buy Marian Keyes books and lend them to me when she was done.

Absolutely loved this book as I have loved all the others.

Not all authors should narrate their own books

The story itself is, as always, a perfectly beautiful Marian Keyes delight. The only issue is the narration. A brilliant author is not automatically the best person to also narrate it. It wasn't awful, just a bit grating on one's nerves..... unless it's normal in Ireland to pronounce single words as though they are two - EG: Mouthed = Mouth-ED; Breathed = Breathe-ED; Safety = Safe-ITY; Back and Forth'd = Back and Forth-ED.
Weird.
But other than that, it's a wonderful book and I would highly recommend it.

Very disappointing

I tried and tried to finish this book but just couldn't - and after many attempts and re-listening to chapter I still don't know what the point of it was. It was so disconnected and very hard to get into any single part of it with any interest. Don't waste your credits.

Not my fav

I love this author but this work felt pushed. So much conversation in the first half of the book between so many characters. It’s so hard to figure out who is who. It took half the book to find any point to any of the stories and it felt like pointless chatter. Not a fan of this one.

Very disappointing

17 hours of my life that I can't ever get back. Having been a huge fan of Marian Keys, I am always excited when a new release hits the stands. This was so unlike any of her other books! Extremely dull story-line, which seemed to go on and on without much point. The plot only got exciting in the last few chapters. Boring story about a family who does nothing but holiday together, but can barely get along. Disappointing ,

Feelgood

Feel good with some depth and perspective.

Narration was hard at first but once I got used to the accent it, I enjoyed it.

Pityful

Feels like it goes on forever. Believing it must improve I came back four times after finishing other books, thinking the denouement would make it worthwhile. I should have read the signs a whole lot earlier. A good writer whom I've enjoyed before, but this felt empty.
