Product Description

Ever wish you could trade your life in for a better one?

The Woman Who Stole My Life is a story full of wit and charm, from the international bestselling author Marian Keyes

'Name: Stella Sweeney.
Height: average.
Recent life events: dramatic.'

One day, sitting in traffic, married Dublin mum Stella Sweeney attempts a good deed. The resulting car crash changes her life.

For she meets a man who wants her telephone number (for the insurance, it turns out). That's okay. She doesn't really like him much anyway (his Range Rover totally banjaxed her car).

But this chance meeting sparks a chain of events which will take Stella thousands of miles from her old life, turning an ordinary woman into a superstar, and, along the way, wrenching her whole family apart.

Is this all because of one ill-advised act of goodwill? Was meeting Mr Range Rover destiny or karma? Should she be grateful or hopping mad? For the first time real, honest-to-goodness happiness is just within her reach. But is Stella Sweeney, Dublin housewife, ready to grasp it?

So I must admit I have had this Marian Keyes book in my Kindle library for some time and keep putting it off reading it. Why? Because I have seen a lot of mixed reviews for 'The Woman who Stole my life', so I apprehensively I started to read it. Well I absolutely loved the first part of the book, mainly for the main background setting scenes. I love Marian Keyes's voice, and her dry wit. The humour runs all the way through...and the best characters are the Irish folk because they have depth and are so very REAL.

It's is based around Stella's contraction of and dealing with a terrible illness, that left her unable to do anything for months. With the aid of a neurologist who works out a way of communicating with her by blinking, they start to have conversations. All the while we get to see inside Stella's head and how she was feeling about being in hospital.

The Majority of the book is flashbacks (which I'm normally not a fan of but it worked in this book) the majority of the flashbacks about Stella's time in the hospital were intriguing and emotional, they really sucked me in. Stella is just an ordinary person however she discovers that her communications have been put together as a book, and from that her life transforms in even more ways. The second half of the book is where I can understand people lost it a bit.

Overall this was a marvellous concept that takes having a crush on your doctor to an entirely new level. I had no idea how the book would end. 4 Stars.

I think this is the first Marian Keyes book I have read and I was hooked! She has such a great, easy style that I'm now going to read her other books. Thanks for the great entertainment Marian.

Marian has the ability to write a fast paced and real life story, with some serious concepts and do so with such humour - that she can change mind sets. I absolutely love everything Marion,writes and this is no exception.

I do not know one woman who has read Marian Keyes and not just devoured every book she writes, and not only women - but men.

Thanks Marian for,yet another superb novel, that was the perfect accompaniment to the perfect holiday.

Marian Keyes delivers another engaging (if somewhat long) novel set in Ireland and New York. The main character Stella is engaging and interesting at times, and at other times seems clueless, especially when dealing with her family, Her relationship with Mannix is complex and a bit far fetched as is her literary career. However it's a good read, with some charming Irish characters and typical abrasive New Yorkers. Great read for taking on holiday or reading on a cold and wet day.

Really disappointed. I was waiting for a twist or turn that would show greater insight into the characters, and when that didn't come waited for the ending to blow me away. To be honest I only finished this book a week ago and I'm struggling to recall the ins and the outs of the story. Sadly, all in all, this was not one of Marian Keyes best.

A good story with a few laugh out loud moments, realistic relationships mixed in with fiction and humour. A good way to spend an afternoon.

As always I became involved in the story and characters and hated having to put it down to get on with my life! I finished it way too quickly and now have the long wait for Marian's next novel!
