“Anybody Out There? (Walsh Family #4)” by Marian Keyes
Eh. I listened to this book and think it would have been better as a quick read. The format is told with a lot of email messages, so consequently, there is a lot of: “to: email@example.com from:firstname.lastname@example.org re: another topic”. Would have been faster to skim those bits and the flow would have been better. Also, I noticed that this is book #4 in a series about this family. I think it works as a stand-alone (I didn’t notice the series title til 3/4 through the book) but probably you get more emotional investment if you know the rest of the family as well.
The book’s primary character is Anna, who is Irish but lives in NYC. “Something” happens, you know it does, but you don’t find out what “it” is until about halfway through the book (or so). And I could have guessed, but it was kinda weird. And then the search for answers, closure…
I like Marian Keyes all right but this is not a great audiobook.
