So, I completed writing a full book review of this second book that I read for 2008 (my first fiction book for the year). When I hit 'publish', it all disappeared. And, it's too late in the day for me to rewrite the whole thing. And, I'll be too disheartened if I don't finish today. So, I decided I'll just have to write a quick, summarised version.
Anyway, Sushi for Beginners by Marian Keyes falls in to the chick lit genre. And, it's just the sort of book that I like to have when I simply want to check out and have a bit of light reading.
I've been a Marian Keyes fan since I read her novel, Last Chance Saloon a few years ago. I think she's funny. And, I love reading about Ireland and her take on romance and life in general through her work.
So, as far as chick lit goes, I think Sushi for Beginners is a good one. There may not be a lot of sushi in it, but the metaphor worked. Somehow. 😉
