Publisher's Summary

You'll be wincing in recognition and scratching your head in incredulity, but like Marian herself you won't be able to stop laughing at the sheer delightful absurdity that is modern life - because each and every one of us is clearly making it up as we go along. She has wonderful and tickling words of advice for those fast approaching 50.

What the Critics Say

"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." (Daily Express)

    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book, I found it to be very funny and insightful at the same time. I wish it would have gone on longer. The narration was excellent, I forgot that I wasn't listening to Marian herself.

    "Mixed bag!"
    Any additional comments?

    Several of the early chapters are pretty funny. Some are, well, a bit silly, and not in a good way! A couple, are a little boring. The best chapters are where Keyes writes seriously about depression, addiction and womens issues. The narration is excellent.

    "Absolutely Amazing"
    What did you like most about Making It up as I Go Along?

    Laugh out load comments that we can all relate to


    Which character – as performed by Aoife McMahon – was your favourite?

    Narration was fantastic. Felt like I was sat having a brew with Marian


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Listening to the tales of the chemist and the games Marian and her Mammy play.


    Any additional comments?

    So many parts of this I could relate to. Love how she refers to her husband as "himself" all the way through. Again the narrating was amazing. Such depth and quality.

    "Entertaining x"

    Entertaining. Great titlle. Thats what most atracted me to purchase. I have to say it listens more like a partial memoir. And yes Marian, it does seem you are constantly on a holiday.
    I felt it ended a little abruptly but will listen to it again and look forward to listening to more from Marian Keynes x

    Spot on with the accent and delivery - could have been the author reading her own book.

    "Disappointing"

    I am a huge fan of Marian Keyes but this book is not worth spending your valuable time or money. It's full of trivia, neither funny nor witty and I did not enjoy the way the narrator read it out.

    "Totally inane"

    Pointless drivel which glorifies the fine detail of make up and general beautification . But there is obviously a market for it.
