(17) The Brightest Star In The Sky by Marian Keyes


The Brightest Star in the Sky
takes us to 66 Star Street, Dublin Ireland. Exactly the place I have always wanted to go.

In her new book, Marian Keyes takes inside 66 Star Street. A housing unit in the heart of Dublin. You get to meet all of the residents. The young married couple on the first floor. The elderly psychic right about them. Next you have the brothers from Poland and their female roommate, the tough talking, taxi driving, Lydia. Finally, on the top floor is Katie. The 40 year old single woman looking for love and happiness.

They all go about living their lives, minding their own business, and struggling with lifes struggles all on their own. Then one day something awful happens that brings them all together. Their lives will never be the same.

Marian Keyes is known for her Irish Chick Lit. Yet there is always a little more to it than just good friends & bad boys. There is meat to her work. In her new book she tackles, date rape, dementia, & depressions. But don't be mistaken. There is also the witty friends and the scoundrels that classify the book Chick Lit. In getting to know the residents of 66 Star Street, I knew whom I wanted to end up with whom. In some cases the author agreed, in others, she did not.

Kudos to you, Ms. Keyes. Once again you have written a novel that played to all of my emotions and made me sad to reach the final page. Thank you for introducing me to the residents of 66 Star Street.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
