Watermelon by Marian Keyes

This is a very long book. The story is pretty interesting, but just starting you get to know the main character has a long way to go on maturity. I like Keyes, but she’s too introspective with her character, which is good, but her style is excessive.

This is the story of Claire. A girl that has everything she needs in life: a good husband, a great flat in London… a great Life. Just when she thought she couldn’t be any happier, ‘cas she had a baby girl, James (her husband) let her know he’s leaving. She and her newborned baby go to spend a recovery period with Claire’s (disfunctional) family to Dublin. After a “long” alcohol period, she gets a little better, and starts her new “single” life, meeting cute Adam. That’s when James gets back on scene. He wants her to go back to London. And that’s what she was going to do, until she realizes of his manipulations.

A story that teachs you what doesn’t kill you, it makes you stronger…
