  • Delicious. I can’t think of any other word to use other than delicious.Before this book, I would have declared myself a hardcore chick-lit fan. I can rattle of a list of writers from both the US and the UK. I can take pictures of my shelves showing rows and rows of chick-lit novels. I can preach to you about how I love the way Megan Crane speaks to women my age, the way Jennifer Crusie speaks to women my size, the way Jill Mansell makes me dream of the UK and all it has to offer. I was convinc [...]

  • Keyes' 2nd book, I think and after reading this one, I definitely do NOT want to read her first book. This book was horrible. I hated the protag so much I just wanted to reach in and strangle her. I hate women like this so so so much.Lucy and her co-workers go to a psychic after work on day and she tells them all one thing and she tells Lucy that she will get married in a year. Turns out currently, Lucy has no boyfriend. Within a week, all the predictions that the psychic gave to her co-workers [...]

  • 4.5 starsAlthough I'm not really fond of chick-lit, and this book was predictable, I loved it! Sure, I HATED HATED HATED, (did I say hated?) some characters (Karen and Gus), but even they seemed normal, real, people we've all dealt with at one time or another. Some would say Lucy's character is weak, not a proper leading lady, but, even when I wanted to slap some sense into her, I adored her and understood her. She has a job she hates, roommates she loves and hates, coworkers that are one of a k [...]

  • There is a fine line between making a character lovably neurotic and making them unbearable and impossible to empathize with. This book falls into the latter category.

  • First, a confession – a confession which will, conceivably, invalidate my entire review. I hate chick lit. There, I’ve said it. I avoid pink covers like the plague. I’m a chick, and I like lit, but the genre commonly known as ‘chick lit’ – can’t stand it. I find it patronising. Men, shopping and diets – is this all women are supposed to be interested in? Couldn’t we have a novel about a 20- or 30-something woman struggling to unravel the meaning of life, or pursuing her lifelon [...]

  • I liked this book…I really did. 740-pages strong, it had a right blend of eccentricities, romance, predictability and enough icky-moments to keep me hooked. Lucy Sullivan is a typical Londoner. Twenty-six years old, she is burdened with a dysfunctional family, a dead-end job, an anal-retentive boss, a medley of demented colleagues, flat mates who totter on the thin line between heaven and hell AND a love-life that’s riddled with enough potholes to make you dizzy. And then a tarot-reader proc [...]

  • We are not amused. After I got into the story a bit, it was not funny, but sickening. The leading character, Lucy, has so many problems and issues, and is completely out of touch with reality. She treats in the worst possible manner only those who really care for her, at the same time being every body else's doormat. Her head was not the nicest place for me to spend time in. I know this is supposed to be a light reading, and that was what I expected, but the theme is not light at all, and the wa [...]

  • This book has gotten a bad rap in the reviews on here, but I really liked it. Yes, I knew who the mystery man groom to be was going to be very early on, but who cares. Krystal, I agree that watching her develop (my only beef was that she was 26 and it seemed like this development should have happened earlier in life, but that's just me being judgemental). You can see her slowly change her attitude about herself, the men in her life, how she should be treated. There's a turning point I love in a [...]

  • So far this is my least favorite Marian Keyes novel. I've even stopped partway through to read Rachel's Holiday and Conversations with the Fat Girl and felt somewhat reluctant to continue reading it. I finally did finish it though, just to see if it at some point would have a redeeming quality. For now, it feels like this novel appears in sepia while all other Keyes books I've read are in technicolor (yes, my description is cliche, but it fits!).After reading, I still feel the same way. I stoppe [...]

  • I know, I know, it's total chick lit and maybe I should go easy on itbut nah. That said, there were a few things about this book I liked. First of all, it made me laugh out loud a few times. However, now that I know Keyes is capable of hilarity, I would have liked it to happen more often, since the book is absurdly long. I also liked that Lucy was not portrayed as being a totally normal girl-- she's dealt with depression throughout her life. Although the plot is totally predictable, it's fun to [...]

  • This book was way too lengthy for my attention span. Halfway through the book & I've already given up on it The protagonist Lucy Sullivan has too much insecurities about herself, & that became boring after a while.(view spoiler)[ Since it's a chicklit, it was but obvious that Lucy would end up with her "too-close-to-have-a-crush-on" best friend Daniel. But i hated the fact that their relationship hasn't been explored in the first half & instead i had to bear with Lucy's constant crib [...]

  • Lucy, Lucy, Lucy.what can I say about Lucy?Sejujurnya, hampir sepanjang buku ini saya membenci Lucy. Dan menyalahkan dia atas semua kesialan yang menimpanya, lha wong dia sendiri yang minta kok. Coba simak kutipan berikut ini: Aku tak dapat membayangkan ada hal yang lebih membosankan daripada berkencan dengan pria yang memiliki gaji tetap, pria yang berhati-hati dengan uangnya, pria yang tahu bagaimana cara hidup agar tidak lebih besar pasak daripada tiang. Aku menganggap ketidakstabilan keuanga [...]

  • I remember finishing this book, and staring at the last period on the last page saying to myself, "I WANT TO KEEP READING!" It was refreshingly funny, and although it was over 500 pages, it was such a light and quick read. As soon as I began this book, I said, "I am Lucy Sullivan."

  • I loved this book. I laughed with Lucy and I felt sad for her disappointments. Most of all, I enjoyed Keyes' writing style. Her chatty style made me feel as if I was conversing with a friend. Just like some of my real life friends, I sometimes wanted to bop her on the head and tell her to get a reality check, but that's one of the great things about this book - Lucy is an honest, real life person with real life flaws (and an addiction to pop psychology and men who treat her badly). The book is a [...]

  • Lucy Sullivan is getting married menceritakan sejarah kehidupan Lucy Sullivan, seorang wanita london berusia 26 tahun terus menerus patah hati, pekerja kantor tidak serius, kurang beruntung dalam cinta, tidak mampu, alkohol dan ayah bercacat, pekerjaan buntu dan teman flat yang menjengkelkan, Charlotte gila dan Karen yang doyan memerintah.

  • The title character of this book, Lucy Sullivan, is a 26-year old single Irish woman living in London. As the story opens, Lucy and 3 co-workers pay a visit to Mrs. Nolan, who is supposedly a "real" psychic. Initially, Lucy laughs off Mrs. Nolan's prediction that she will be married within the year (18 months at the outside), but when Mrs. Nolan's predictions seem to start coming true for her friends, she begins to wonder. When she meets Gus, an eccentric but fun partygoer, Lucy is almost certai [...]

  • After two hundred pages, I realized I read Lucy Sullivan at least ten years ago. It was cute, but I couldn't get myself to reread the entire book again. At 641 pages, this cute story about a fun woman and her quirky love life was too long. It was fairly predictable, even though I didn't remember all the details from my first time reading, and it had way too many digressions. This same book could have easily been told in 300 or so pages. So, I skipped to the sweet ending, with the guy I realized [...]

  • I know I've read them out of order, but if you've read Sushi for Beginners you can pretty well give this book a miss (or vice versa), as they're nearly identical:-aging failure with men has office job she hates and suffers from depression.-Less attractive than her friends and has a strained relationship with her family.-Finds herself linked romantically with "the man of her dreams", a performer (comedian, musician).-gets treated like garbage by lout boyfriend and more attractive friends.-comes t [...]

  • So this ended up being one of the very first books that I bought on my Kindle when I was overseas. I don't know why but I manage to always read this book when I am feeling blue. Maybe it's because right now I am being hit over the head with the fact that my happily ever after may look totally different than my friends/family and I need to be okay with that. I loved books in this genre since just like with romance novels, you know that the girl is always going to get the guy in the end and that [...]

  • I was in a mood for something different after reading the phenomenal legal thriller Sycamore Row so I picked up this 600 pages long chick-lit from my shelf. I ordinarily don't buy chick-lit books because I'd rather buy mysteries and thrillers, which I absolutely love reading. This book came from a box of some 25 assorted books which my father bought for me from a whole-sale market for just Rs. 2000. SPOILERS Ahead. Consider yourself warned!!Lucy Sullivan is the worst type of heroine you can read [...]

  • A long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away I read my first Marian Keyes book, I actually cannot believe it was 18 years ago. Which of course makes me feel extremely old!I decided to review this book today as a walk down memory lane, revisiting the fab story of little Lucy Sullivan and whether or not she gets married. I have read a lot of Marian's books over the course of the last 18 odd years but this story has to be my favourite, not only is an excellent story it also reminds me of a time [...]

  • This is an easy read that I think is great for passing the time, but there isn't much substance to it. I'm a big fan of Marian Keyes work and am currently working my way through all of her books. I had really high hopes for this, as like I said, I'm a big fan of the author, but I found myself disappointed. The plot is pretty straightforward; Lucy is told by a psychic that she will be married in a year. As Lucy is currently single she's cynical, but when the psychic's other predictions come true [...]

  • Aunque tenía bastantes ganas de reencontrarme con alguna de las disparatadas y divertidísimas historias de Marian Keyes, lo cierto es que la lectura de este libro me ha resultado francamente decepcionante. Lucy Sullivan se casa no es ni mucho menos una mala novela, pero en comparación con otros trabajos posteriores (que por suerte o por desgracia son los primeros que he ido leyendo) se nota que la escritora irlandesa aún tenía demasiadas cosas por aprender. Con su habitual pero poco pulido [...]

  • I actually wanted to give this book 4 or 5 stars. Marian Keyes writes books that I usually finish in a couple of days. She's hilarious. The problem is she sometimes invents these characters that I absolutely hate! It's almost 700 pages and you spend it thinking are there actually women like this! The lead character in this Book Lucy Sullivan is unlucky in love. She's gullible and stupid. She let's men treat her horribly and is suspicious of anyone who treats her remotely well. She dates a guy na [...]

  • When you have a book with 740 pages, it's not a very good sign that you can guess the whole story by page 35. Yes, when I read: "Daniel was my friend and, while he was the closest thing that I had to a steady man in my life, I wouldn't have become emotionally involved with him if the future of the human race depended on it." I could have stopped there and moved on.But I didn't, so I endured 700 more pages of predictable merry-go-round chicklit. I'll seriously ponder before I pick another one of [...]

  • Shortly after Lucy and her boyfriend have broken up, Lucy goes with some coworkers to a fortune teller. Lucy is told she will be getting married within the next year and a half. When the other girls' fortunes come true, Lucy begins to wonder if hers will, too. Then, she meets Gus, a really charming and fun guy. Will Gus be “the one”? I really enjoyed this. The first half was good, but it got better in the second half, I thought, as more obstacles came up and Lucy had to deal with family issu [...]

  • This is pretty good chick lit. Yes, it is kind of predictable but you enjoy the ride. Chocolate for the brain.Lucy is a single girl, living in London with her flatmates and visits a psychic who tells her she's getting married. When her friends' predictions come true, well, Lucy must be getting married. Enter Gus, who must be one of the most annoying characters in English fiction in my opinion. Lucy Lavan sounds so good, so she must be marrying Gus, yes? Of course not, we're only halfway through [...]

  • Lucy frustrated me a lot through this book but I'm god I stuck it out because I have to say this is one of the best character developments I have read. Oh her choice in men! Gus! I couldn't stand him from the start and her willingness to just hand over everything and take everything annoyed me to no end. Oh and her roommate Karen was such a a b****! It all started to make sense with her father and I'm glad she grew a backbone. I think this is a book I will enjoy the second time knowing she won't [...]

  • I used to like reading Marian Keyes but this time I was a little disappointed. Whilst the underlying storyline was reasonable - Lucy Sullivan moving through a string of failed relationships with men displaying similar behaviour to her alcoholic father and her inability to see either situation for what it is then her eventual awakening to the truth; the characters themselves were more than irritating so I wanted to skim read large parts. I will try another Keyes at some stage but I don't recommen [...]

  • I think it's obvious while reading this novel that it was one of Marian Keyes' first. It is a cute book, very funny at times, but the writing style can be irritating all the way through. I am a big Marian Keyes fan, but definitely prefer her later books, which have characters that are easy to identify with, and normally include some great plot twists. This is a light, entertaining read, but it's still a bit irritating.
