I like Marian Keyes books and this is one of her better ones. Not your typical romance novel and very funny and touching. I think that the narrator is easy to understand and pleasant to listen to (she does not do American accents all that well, but in some ways that enhances the telling as it is told from the perspective of an Irish woman and the so-so American accents fit). I found myself listening to this one every chance I got and finished it in one week.
I was compelled to listen to this book to the point that I often didn't get other things finished because I had to hear more. The story creates a good deal of suspense and you become extremely involved in the characters which are developed with care. I felt some loose ends were not tied up at the end of the story and after finishing have some questions about events that are unexplained and seem inconsistent to me. However, this did not take away from my immense enjoyment of this book. I highly recommend 'Lost Boys.'
