LoveReading View on Making it Up as I Go Along

‘Making It Up As I Go Along’ was just as I imagined it would be, warm, honest, lovely, funny and highly entertaining. This is a collection of articles written by Marian Keyes, some previously published, some not, from health and beauty, to things she loves, to people she has met. The Lexicon at the beginning of the book is an extremely informative and chuckle inducing read and you can learn the meaning of various words including ‘agin’ and ‘craythur’. As Marian herself says, this is a book you can start wherever takes your fancy and you can dip in and out along the way. You know you really love a book when you insist on reading the good bits out loud to whoever happens to be closest to you at that time, my husband has consequently heard almost as much as I’ve read. I now feel as though I know Marian, enough indeed, to know that even though tempted, I wouldn't want to stow away in one of her suitcases when she travels to far flung places with ‘Himself’, and thats because her luggage so often goes walkabout/missing at airports. Oh, and I probably wouldn't want to go shoe shopping with her either! ~ Liz Robinson

Making it Up as I Go Along Synopsis

'Fabulous shoes, my badly made stews, an Antarctic cruise and ten pounds to lose. Having to schmooze when I'd far rather snooze. Skin care and bad hair and what should I wear? All kinds of views, which I hope will amuse...' Welcome to the magnificent Making It Up as I Go Along - aka the World According to Marian Keyes (trade mark) - A bold, brilliant book bursting with Marian's hilarious and heartfelt observations on modern life, love and much, much else besides. Such as? you are determined to ask. Well, how about her guide to breaking up with your hairdresser? Or the warning she has for us all after a particularly traumatic fling with fake tan. There's the pure and bounteous joy of the nail varnish museum. Not to mention the very best lies to tell if you find yourself on an Arctic cruise. She has words of advice for those fast approaching fifty. And she's here to tell you the secret truth about writers - well, this one anyway. 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.
