Another Monday another review.
The Brightest Star in the Sky: A Novel
By: Marian Keyes
There’s no plot! Wait, no, that’s wrong. There IS a plot but it’s hiding. There’s a hint of it a little past the half-way point in the book but it really waits until nearly the very end to jump out of where it’s hiding and yell “Boo!”
At some point in time I wanted to thwack everyone in the story upside the head, some more than once. Some characters are silly, some are just annoyingly dense others are cruel and spiteful. The whole story is a weird combination of soap opera and gossip fest.
All that being said, I could not put this book down. It pulled me in and kept me rapt from cover to cover and in the end I wanted the story to keep going. This is well worth reading!
