Read Watermelon (Walsh Family, #1) Online Free - Marian Keyes begins Watermelon with a rather inauspicious romantic opening when the heroine's husband leaves her for Denise from the flat downstairs the day their first child is born. Claire, the deserted wife and mother, returns to her family in Dublin and, after going through the required stages of "Loss, Loneliness, Hopelessness and Humiliation", begins to feel much better--so much better that when James tries to win his way back into her affections, he gets more than he bargained for.

I am quite random myself, skipping from subject to subject without segways, but Keyes takes it to another level. I just felt like yelling "get to the point!". Some of Claire's inner dialog was funny, but by page 30 I was skipping over large chunks to get to the actual moving plot line of the book...

Marijanu i njenog muža Tonija upoznala sam 2002. godine na sajmu u Njujorku... I zaprepastila se... Pa, oni znaju ponešto da kažu na srpskom! Misterija je brzo rešena, Marijanin brat oženjen je Beograđankom Ljiljanom i otud poznavanje i srpskog jezika i kulture, a bogme i hrane... :) Po povratku...

Opening Line:” ”I’m sorry, you must think I’m very rude. We’ve hardly even been introduced and here I am telling you all about the terrible things that have happened to me.”
Claire thought she had the perfect life right up until her husband James announced that he didn’t love her anymore and was l...

3,5/5 Mi estreno con Marian Keyes ha estado bien, pero quizá por las expectativas, creía que sería mejor. Lo que se me ha hecho pesado en muchas ocasiones han sido los pensamientos de Claire, se alejaba tanto del tema en cuestión que me perdía y me costaba volver a coger el hilo, aunque a otra pe...

What a Way to Start a Brand New Baby’s Life!
Claire can’t believe that the very day that she gives birth to her first child is the same day that her husband decides to leave her. What Luck! Marian Keyes pulls out all the stops in the development of the story and the characters. Claire and her hus...

I picked this book up after I finished Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married. Like Lucy Sullivan, I enjoyed Marian Keyes chatty style. Reading this book feels like a chat with a friend and I found that I got to know the main character very well. Marian Keyes excels at character development.
As you pro...

This is chick-lit, so you can't come in thinking it will be masterfully written. That said, this was worse than most. I picked it up because it was recommended and looked like a quick read. It was even quicker than expected, because I was able to skip a huge portion of the angst at the beginning...

I'm having ups and downs with this so far. I really love Marian Keyes humor, and that's what keeps me going. I'm having a hard time totally caring about Claire though, and I'm not sure what I'm missing. I almost feel like there is just too much of her that I don't know. I know her sisters better...

I don't think I've ever been so glad to finish a book. Of course I wasn't expecting this to be a literary masterpiece but I thought being to some degree enjoyable wouldn't have been too much to ask.
The premise is probably standard for a chick-lit novel - a woman's husband tells her he's been hav...
