Despite the magical storyline, The Brightest Star in the Sky is actually a rather depressing read. None of the characters are happy, and their backstories are all very dreary – cheating, loneliness and mental illness among the mildest issues being dealt with. It pains me to give this one star (and I'd prefer to give it . but I just can't) as I love Marian Keyes, but this book took me by surprise - and not in a good way. I figured out the "big secret" with Maeve early on, but I'm not sure whether that was due to it being obvious, or more a recognition of subtle signs, so maybe not everyone would work it out so quickly.

Marian Keyes: what a genius'. When it comes to writing page-turners that put a smile on your face and make you think, Keyes is in a class of her own'. The real joy is in the journey itself; watching Keyes' quirky characters as they change partners, reveal battle scars and command your attention on every page'. A delicious helping of literary loveliness'.

Start reading The Brightest Star in the Sky on your Kindle in under a minute. I'm a big fan of Marian Keyes because she manages to write books that feature characters who are funny and engaging in worlds that are up-to-the-minute contemporary while including a dark undercurrent that provides a serious and generally feminist message. The Brightest Star in the Sky certainly fits that bill, featuring the residents who live in the apartments at 66 Star Street in Dublin in a story that provides plots for each that eventually weave together into a satisfying conclusion.

  • I'm a big fan of Marian Keyes because she manages to write books that feature characters who are funny and engaging in worlds that are up-to-the-minute contemporary while including a dark undercurrent that provides a serious and generally feminist message. The Brightest Star in the Sky certainly fits that bill, featuring the residents who live in the apartments at 66 Star Street in Dublin in a story that provides plots for each that eventually weave together into a satisfying conclusion. There's a 40-something record promoter trying to figure out where things our going with her globe-trotting boyfriend whose specialty is restructing failing companies, including firing employees by the hundreds. There's an old lady whose foster-son comes to town in hopes of launching a TV career. There's a pair of newlyweds whose perfect marriage appears to be in big trouble. There's a spunky taxi driver who's living in a closet-turned-bedroom with two eastern European fellows who don't understand why she doesn't do the women's work. There's also a spectral presence floating through walls and windows, which adds a supernatural element that didn't really work for me, but since everything else did, I found it easy to overlook. Unfortunately, fans like me may be waiting awhile for Keyes' next book because, as she revealed on her website in May, she's been suffering "a major depressive episode" and is not working. I join the dozens of fans who've posted messages of support on her website in wishing her well and hoping the wisdom and courage she's displayed in her novels helps her make a complete recovery.

  • Another very enjoyable novel from Ms Keyes. The rather unusual plot device worked well, and I found this to be a most satisfying read. I am always thankful when I get to feel this way at the end of a book. It reminded me of Kate Atkinson's novel-Behind the Scenes at the Museum- though they are very different stories, if equally good. .Discovering Marian Keyes has been a big bonus, as she writes so well, using very different plotlines, but consistently builds interesting, believable characters.

  • This novel easily surpasses all the fiction I've read in months. So unique as to transcend that very quality and appear as real and genuine a love story as humanly possible. Spare but tightly woven and rich with emotion and truths. Painfully articulate of human frailty, hope, wonder and possibility. The author is mesmerizing and simply can't wait to indulge in another of her perfectly crafted novels. Though this one will be hard to top and will stick with me always. Bravo author!

  • I am not all that impressed with the book. At least not at first. I find it interesting as they way the characters inter-mix and how they develop over a few weeks time.
    There was one story line that I figured out pretty quick, and as you are getting towards the end of the book, you can start to see how each story is going to end.
    It is an enjoyable book, not 100% sure I would recommend it on to someone to read...

  • I really enjoyed this book. There are several intersecting stories and I related to some characters and their stories more than others. It started out a tad slow for me but it picked up. I think that might be because I didn't find the writing as witty as most of Keyes stories. It doesn't have the fast-paced quick wit feel. I love the way it all comes together in the end!

  • I have loved so many of Ms. Keyes books. She writes with great humor and quirky characters, but her books also have a serious theme as well. It makes her much more than a 'chick lit' author. This book had all of those qualities. I found it a bit confusing as first, going back and forth between past and present, but I realized the past was necessary to get to know the characters and why they are who they are today. That's another thing I like about this author. Her characters have depth. This book kept me reading, kept me interested. It also kept me guessing as to how all of these lives could ever end up in good places. Very enjoyable.

  • This is a book I wish I hadn't read so I could read it again for the first time. I ignored everything around me to keep reading to the end. I laughed, I got goose bumps, I hurt with Maeve and Matt, an astounding, wonderful book. Please keep them coming!

  • You can count on Marian Keyes to deliver a giggle and a lot of twists within the story line. You can count on her to make you think about some pretty silly stuff, yet it makes sense. She is very good at nailing us humans as flawed, and making us look at it.

    This story is a good one, lots of details and the characters are just a lovely bunch of well 'characters'. Fun read!
