Comic, convincing and true. Grown Ups has an almost Austenesque insight into character. Keyes knows how to make serious issues relatable - and get a few grownup laughs, too * Guardian * Messy, tangled complex humans who reminded me that few of us ever really sort out our lives at all * Jojo Moyes * Magnificently messy lives, brilliantly untangled. Funny, tender and completely absorbing! * Graham Norton * I loved every word of Grown Ups. I will be missing those gorgeous vibrant characters for many weeks to come. There should be a word to describe the sadness and satisfaction you feel when you read the last page of a Marian Keyes novel: the ending is perfect but you still want more, more, more * Liane Moriarty * I LOVED Grown Ups so much. It's SUCH a treat. I felt like I was rolling in PURE JOY throughout. The cleverest cream cake of words * Caitlin Moran * You may have written the best book of your career * Chris Evans, Virgin Radio * Funny and moving, with an acute eye for family foibles * Ian Rankin, bestselling author of the John Rebus thrillers * It is charming, funny and poignant. But also profound, heartbreaking. If you already love Marian, this is her best yet. If you haven't read her, this is the one * Nina Stibbe * Marian Keyes shows superb skill at tackling tough themes in this tale of a clan with secrets. Grown Ups is a warm-hearted, wise and highly entertaining portrayal of how families behave; and of the love and tolerance required to sustain our closest relationships * Hannah Beckerman, Observer * A novel that is warm and witty but never afraid to tackle the big stuff * Elizabeth Day, Mail on Sunday * Keyes at her best: capturing everyday voices with humour and empathy with writing that you'll devour in a weekend. Just pure and simple joy. * Stylist * A brilliant bunch of flawed individuals, all battling to understand themselves and those around them. Definitely worth devouring this year! What a treat * Giovanna Fletcher * Marian's chatty style pulls readers in with warmth, wit and high drama * The Sunday Times Online * Grown Ups is big-hearted and entertaining, dark, funny and hugely empathetic * Daily Express * Keyes is so ambitious, funny and compassionate it's no wonder so many adore her writing * i '40 Books for the Summer' * Her most ambitious work. Delightful, bursting with wit and compassion * iNews * Keyes's latest novel might just be her greatest . . . Subtle, sophisticated storytelling * Independent * This beauty of a book just took the crown as my new favourite Marian Keyes novel (and that is a HIGH bar). It's tender, hilarious, important, with characters who feel as real as your own family by the time you're done. I put it down and felt bereft * Beth O'Leary * A book that will make you laugh out loud, get choked up, and be very annoyed when you get to the end and have to say goodbye to all these characters. Marian's storytelling skills make you care deeply about each and every one of them * The Sun Online * Funny, thought-provoking and will get you right in the feels * Red * THIS BOOK. Reader, I LOVED it. Funny & thoughtful & such brilliantly drawn characters I am genuinely bereft that my time with them is over. And it tackles some REALLY important issues with immense sensitivity & insight * Hannah Beckerman * Rejoice! Marian's back with her best book yet! An absolutely brilliant story with a very powerful emotional punch * Best * At times heart-warming, at other times heartbreaking . . . This highly entertaining book is frustratingly hard to put down and can be easily devoured over a weekend * Daily Express * A new book from the witty Irish novelist. When Cara Casey suffers concussion, she starts spilling the secrets of her glamorous, talented family. All is not as it seems * The Times, Ones to watch in 2020 * Sensitive, funny, wonderful, immensely touching * Nigella Lawson * Immersive... I absolutely loved it! * Jill Mansell * Grown Ups is perfection. Smart, dark, layered. Her best yet!
