Book Review - Anybody Out There? by Marion Keyes
I tend to get wrapped up in the novels I read, and Anybody Out There? by Marion Keyes was no exception.
Not many books get me to break down in tears in the middle of my kitchen, though. This one did. (My poor, long-suffering husband).
Anna loves life in New York City. She has "the best job in the world", a terrific circle of friends, and a relationship that's too good to be true. So when she wakes up back home in Ireland with scars but no memory of what has happened to her, she bounces between past memories and present experiences to piece it all together.
This novel packs an emotional punch. It will suck you in, make you laugh...and, yes - possibly leave you in tears. I commend Marion Keyes for making us care so much about her characters and their stories.
