Lucy Sullivan can be very annoying. She's too lazy to do her laundry, too dumb to realize her father is an alcoholic, and too ungrateful to appreciate the people who treat her nicely. But there is something about this vulnerable Irish girl plugging away at a dead-end job in London, sharing alcoholic binges with workmates and roommates that touched me. Maybe it was her desperate need to be loved, her witty repartee with herself and others, or just the universal quest to find that special person that touched me, but by book's end I was screaming for it not to end. I wanted more of Lucy, Daniel, Karen, Meredia, Megan, Charlotte, and even Gus. . . well, maybe I'd had enough of Gus.
We first meet Lucy when she and her co-workers are about to visit a fortune teller. One glance into her crystal ball and the fortune teller sees marriage for Lucy within 18 months. But Lucy has no prospects having just broken up with Stephen because he treats her too nice. At first skeptical, but becoming hopeful as her two workmates have their fortunes come true, Lucy eagerly picks up the first man she meets at a party and tags him the future Mr. Lucy Sullivan. Too bad he has no home, no money, no job, nothing but a loud mouth and lots of nerve. But Lucy is in love and defends the loathsome Gus to everyone including her best friend Daniel. When Gus disappears, Daniel becomes intimate with her roommate, and a new man comes into the office, things get even funnier. Light but touching, sensitive and emotional, LUCY SULLIVAN IS GETTING MARRIED is sure-fire entertainment for all lovers of British chick lit.

Yet again Marian Keyes is back to her girl is single, girl looks for guy, but ends up with all the wrong men in the world. Now don't get me wrong I am a sucker for storys like this..
Lucy is your typical young woman who is looking for all the things that single women do. Someone to be there, someone to love and someone that she can have fun with. When she goes with her friends from work to see a fortune teller and there is where the lady tells her that Lucy will be getting married soon, but the problem is that Lucy is single.
Lucy then has her fair share of bad dates and bad men.
Lucy's roomates Karen and Charlotte were a riot to read about. I just wanted to strangle Karen for being such a terrible person towards Lucy. Lucy's work friends Megan, Merdia and Jed were a riot to, thou there wasn't too much mentioned about them.
Daniel the knight in shining armor for Lucy. Always there to help her out and be there for when he can. He was a really great person. there were times when I just wanted to go and tell Lucy to wake up and smell the coffee about him.
Overall since this was Marian Keyes second novel it was good, not as good as some of her later books, but she is talented writer.

Having read two of Keyes' novels previously, I had expected nothing less than the best from Keyes. Her wit, and writing skills usually make for a fascinating read. While Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married is definitely a good novel, of the Chick Lit variety, it is not an exceptional one.
Where Rachel's Holiday boasted hilarity and excellent character development, Lucy Sullivan was a bit lacking. Mind you, a bit lacking for Marian Keyes is better than your average Chick Lit book. However, this novel was slightly better than an average chick lit book, making it a bit of a disappointment from Keyes.
I still laughed out loud, and enjoyed reading Lucy Sullivan but it was a bit trite. I found the characters were much more one-dimensional than in her later novels. The plot was less sophisticated, more predictable and generally more chick lit-esque.
Keyes is a fantastic writer, and even this book is enjoyable, it's just not up to par.
Strangely enough, I would still recommend this book to first time Keyes readers. Only to tell you that it gets even better after this. If you started with Lucy Sullivan and follwed with her others, I think it would be a much better sequence--- you would notice the improvement in her writing since having written Lucy Sullivan.
So, don't let this review discourage you in any way from reading Keyes. She is a talented writer, with a gift for prose and character development, this novel just does not accentuate those aspects well enough. I have yet to read Last Chance Saloon, and Watermelon, but both Rachel's Holiday and Sushi for Beginners are both excellent. I will be reading everything by Keyes that I can get my hands on.
Enjoy, and first time Keyes readers, if you find this too light and fluffy, don't be discouraged from reading Keyes, pick up Rachel's Holiday and you'll understand what all the fuss is about!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lucy Sullivan is getting married, at least the fortune teller she visits with her friends says so. Of course Lucy Sullivan does not believe in fortune tellers or in tarot cards, but when things the fortune teller told would happend to her friends really happends she starts to wonder. Is she really getting married? She, who never has any luck with the right men? And whom is her husband to be? Can it be Gus, the gorgeous, sexy though unrelyable Gus, or may be Jed, the new boy at work, or may be Chuck, the handsome American she is dating? Well, it really isn't Daniel though, he is her best friend and the one who listens to her when she makes a mess of her life. Which she does, over and over again.
Lucy Sullivan has alot in common with Bridget Jones. They are both singel girls trying desperate to make the best out of their lives, to be sexy enough, thin enough, have enough money till the next payday and so on, and so on. Though this is not written as a diary like BJ is.
The book is a long one, more than 700 pages, but it is truly a page turner. And though Marian Kayes could with success have spend a couple of hundred pages less on the book, it is an easy read. You can laugh with Lucy, though you can't cry much with her. The language is too funny, though sometimes I really wanted to cry. Especially when she is having her useless meetings with her mother, or when she is trying to take care of her father after her mother has left him.
Marian Keyes is one of many promising Irish writers of today, and since this is the first book I read by her I know I have hours and hours of great reading time ahead of me. I'm already on my way to by another book by her, though untill it's done I can enjoy myself with another Irish writer, Niall Williams.
