The Break – book review

The Break - book review

The Break is the latest book by Marian Keyes. There is a reason Marian Keyes is such a popular author, she has such a great way of telling a story. It’s relate able and entertaining at the same time. Check out my review of The Woman who stole my Life also by Marian Keyes.

In this novel Marian Keyes tells the story of Amy and Hugh a couple in their 40s with children. They have been married for years, happily or so Amy thought when Hugh announces he is taking a 6 month break. The break is from his life, their marriage, the kids everything, and he is backpacking around Asia.

Amy doesn’t know how to take this, she knows Hugh has been ‘off’ since his dad died, but this. Hugh tells her he loves her and will come back, but what if he doesn’t? Then Amy realises if Hugh is having a break from their marriage then so is she?

Marian manages to tell this story so that its funny, but also really addresses issues lots of people, especially women, face. If you are a Marian fan like myself, definitely check this out. If you haven’t read a Marian Keyes book before, then this is a good one to start with.
