Marian Keyes (born 10 September 1963) is an Irish novelist and non-fiction writer, best known for her work in women's literature. She is an Irish Book Awards winner.

Marian Keyes' Sushi for Beginners is the blissfully funny, smart tale of three women who discover that the line between success and failure, happiness and sadness, sanity and madness is finer than they ever thought . . . 'Dammit,' she realized. 'I think I'm having a nervous breakdown.' Hot-shot magazine editor Lisa Edwards' career is destined for high-rise New York, when suddenly she's blown off-course into the delights of low-rise Dublin. But what on earth can she do about it? Ashling Kennedy, Lisa's super-organized assistant, is good at worrying. Too good. She's even terrified of a little bit of raw fish . . . Clodagh Kelly is Ashling's best friend and has done everything right: beautiful kids and a husband come prince - everything in fact that Ashling has ever wanted. She should be - yet, she's not - happy. Three women on the verge of happiness and even closer to a complete breakdown. Which way will they fall? 'Keyes has given romantic comedy a much-needed face-lift. Chatty and warmhearted, Keyes's talent is to tell it how it is' Independent 'Laden with plots twists, jokey asides and nicely turned bits of zeitgeisty observational humour ... her energetic, well-constructed prose delivers life and people in satisfyingly various shades of grey' Guardian 'The voice of a generation' Daily Mirror
  • I love this book, although I wasn't so sure of it the first time I read it. I find it fascinating to glimpse into an idea of people's lives who have been brought up quite differently. Lisa is so hard, and tough, because - at least partially - she was dissatisfied with her poor upbringing. As she comes to understand herself better, she can be happy with who she is, and therefore be nicer to other people.
    Ashling is loyal and devoted, leading to her being walked on a fair bit. It takes a metaphoric slap in the face for her to experience and finally understand what her mother went through and allow her to process her childhood before she can mature.
    Clodagh is needed to make Ashling's 'slap' bigger, and to balance what Ashling is going through. She's the least likeable in my opinion, because although she is supposed to be devoting herself to rearing her children she doesn't seem to put much effort into them. I do particularly like that the book describes being alone with two small children day-in, day-out as being exhausting and lonely, though. That's something I personally experienced with my two boys when they were small.

    I read the US kindle version of this the other day, after 15 or so years of reading the paperback from Australia, and there are many small differences between them (lines left out or added, words/names changed, etc). I think it's sad that the versions can't be the same, which would give a more authentic experience to the reader. It makes me want to seek out the Irish/UK version in case my Aussie version is itself altered.

  • 'Sushi for Beginners' focuses primarily on two very different women thrown together by work. Lisa Edwards is a London sophisticate on a hot career track while Ashling Kennedy is the perfect second in command type person who wishes she had Lisa's elan and attitude. The two women meet at the start up of Colleen, an edgy Irish fashion magazine. The magazine and the two women's personal lives allow the introduction of a variety of interesting characters including Lisa's almost ex-husband, Ashling's feckless boyfriend and best friend, and Jack Devine, the handsome boss that both Lisa and Ashling find attractive.
    'Sushi for Beginners' follows Lisa and Ashling as they seek professional and persona success. As Lisa's marriage with the husband she still loves comes to an end, she discovers new aspect of herself and new priorities. The journey, however, is filled with funny mis-steps and misunderstandings. Ashling begins to learn to stand up for herself, and discovers true love simply by being herself.
    This is a very enjoyable novel, and one I found difficult to put down. The characters have enough foibles to be real, and the reader can empathize with the humiliation and embarassment both Lisa and Ashling encounter. The surrounding characters are personable, interesting, and accessible. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys 'chick lit' or Marian Keyes' other books.

  • After not being totally impressed with the first Marian Keyes book I had read, I was a little hesitant to begin this one. I love this book! There are a couple of main characters and each has such a different personality and different obstacles in their life. It's funny how each person's life changes from what they learn from each other.

    This is a long book but worth every second you spending reading it. Some of the characters work in a new high fashion magazine, some are comics trying to make it and some are friends and relatives from the sidelines.

    The three main women in the book: Ashling is an ordinary girl with a compassionate and difficult past due to her mother is just trying to get by minimally in the magazine world, Lisa is the high flying editor knocking everyone over on her way to the top, including her parents and her husband, and Clodaugh the picture of a perfect life who is unhappy and bored with her life. Each person learns something from the others and their relationships change with the mistakes they make and the lessons they learn. It's a very good book!

  • I really enjoy Marian Keyes books, especially Lucy Sullivan Gets Married and Rachel's Holiday, I didn't like this book very much.
    I don't think the way the story is told allows you to have any real empathy of the characters. Lisa is too mean for you to care about, Ashling to much of a doormat and Clodagh is way to spoiled and selfish. Icouldn't care about these people because I didn't like them. I kep asking myself questions like: If Lisa wants to be with Oliver, why does she keep acting like such a fool and what does she gain by being so awful to everyone around her? Why would Ashling keep Clodagh as a close friend after she had already betrayed their friendship by helping herself to her friends boy friend? Mind you, I'm not saying you should ignore the man's part, but what kind of friend has so little respect for you that she would do this, and why would you want her in your life after she's done this? Why is Ashling such a door mat?
    I even put this book down and picked up Babyville (great book) so I could try to get back into it. Alas, by the end of this book I was just glad it was over, now I'm waiting for her next one. I hope it's better than this.

  • Liked it, but was doubting if I would throughout the middle. Sometimes I was wondering if I liked any of the characters, however liked how the book ended.
