With This Charming Man, Marian Keyes hits her stride as a novelist with her best novel yet, telling the stories of four women who are shaped by one man. Paddy de Courcy is Ireland's debonair politician, the "John F. Kennedy Jr. of Dublin. His charm and charisma have taken hold of the country and the tabloids, not to mention our four heroines: Lola, Grace, Marnie, and Alicia. I purchased the hardcover anyway, on a bet that Marian Keyes never ever disappoints.

I love Marian Keyes and have read a number of her books in the past. In recent years I have run out of reading time and have begun to take advantage of audio books. This one did not disappoint! It had the same humor while working through relevant issues that I have come to expect from the author. She really gives her characters a personality and voice that makes you feel as if you know them, and you do not want to put down the book for a minute. The beauty of the audio book here and the reader chosen was that her voice and her accent REALLY bring the story to life! I was unsure if the abridged version would take away from the story so to test the theory after listening I flipped through the hardback which I already had but had not found the time to read. I found that the things that were cut out were not essential to the story. Another winner from one of my favorite authors!

I like Marian Keyes, but this novel is a cut above her usual. The beginning is funny and light (despite, or because of, the devastation of the first narrator, Lola, who has the quirkiest voice). The novel switches between her story and that of the cool and competent Grace and then her truly devastated sister Marnie. The shift in tone is pretty amazing. You really get the sense of Marnie's utter depression, insecurity, and desperation (as opposed to Lola's temporary and frantic devastation at hearing that her boyfriend is engaged).

The novel deals with some really heavy themes: domestic abuse, depression, alcoholism--and handles them all well. Marnie's story in particular is a lesson in unreliable narration, and the revelation is like a never-ending trainwreck for her, her sister Grace, and the reader. Despite that, she remains sympathetic. There are other mysteries that unfold--like what's going on with Paddy, who's being abused, and who the cross-dresser (not transexual!) who shows up to Lola's girl's night is.

I am a fan of Marian Keyes and other writes of the Irish fun-fiction, in fact Keyes was one of the first authors I tracked down after receiving a Kindle for Christmas 2010.

I finished this book this morning, almost 3 whole weeks after purchasing it and starting it.

I'm not a speed reader by any means, or trying to show off but...a typical Keyes (or similar style) book usually takes me a couple days, maybe a weekend afternoon if I'm not distracted by anything else.

I enjoyed the book overall, and was intrigued at first by the unidentified victim in the between-chapter sections. As I read, I found that I really enjoyed Grace's storyline and read through Marnie's at a quick clip, wanting to learn more about her difficulties. I thought that Keyes did an excellent job with these two characters specifically - I wanted to learn more and more about them and had a hard time stopping in the middle of their segments.

But then there's Lola. Oh, Lola. PLEASE don't make me read a narration that sounds like a junior high girl. I thought for a moment that my Kindle had accidentally downloaded "Angus, Thongs & Full-Frontal Snogging" or something. (I did love those books, however, but that is when I want to read something super-light and entertaining, not in the middle of a novel!)

It was actually really hard to read the entirety of Lola's segments, which has been mentioned and pinpointed by lots of other reviewers here. I don't feel so bad now for my own dislike of those sections! I agree with a previous poster who said Keyes seemed to be trying to be TOO hip and TOO modern with Lola and her style of writing for those sections. I skipped over loads of "dialogue" and was only entertained during the stories about the town and townspeople, not Lola's random stream-of-consciousness rambling.

All in all, the book was a good read and I'm glad I found it. I did feel the ending was contrived and a bit too "wrapped up in a bow" for me, and for the readers who say that it was too long, I disagree. I think it would have benefited from more details post-showdown with Paddy and I, for one, would love to read another story involving Grace and Marnie.

But PLEASE no more Lola.
