Anybody Out There?
by Marian Keyes
Published by HarperCollins, 2006
Summary: Anna Walsh wakes up in her parents' house in London. At first, she doesn't remember how she became injured or why her husband is not returning her calls. Against the advice of her family, she returns to her life in New York to figure out what happened.
Review: I'd like to thank Book Club Girl for suggesting this book. Anybody Out There is an entertaining novel that examines what happens when a person's perfect life is changed in one tragic moment. Marian Keyes has a light, conversational writing style that makes it hard to put the novel down. Her main character, Anna, is extremely likable and is supported by a cast of diverse characters. I especially enjoyed Anna's relationship with her family, a clan of unique individuals who truly love and support each other. Through these characters, Keyes is able to infuse very funny scenes among the sad circumstances in the plot. The plot is fast moving and makes the novel a joy to read. Rating:**** out of 5
