Descripción del producto

RACHEL'S HOLIDAY, Marian's classic novel about addiction, is being given a new lease of life with a fantastic new jacket treatment.



Here's Rachel Walsh, twenty-seven and the miserable owner of size 8 feet. She has regular congress with Luke Costello, a man who wears his leather trousers tight. And she's fond - some might say too fond - of recreational drugs. Until she finds herself being frogmarched to the Cloisters - Dublin's answer to the Betty Ford Clinic. She's outraged. Surely she's not thin enough to be an addict? Heartsick and Luke-sick, she seeks redemption in the shape of Chris, a Man with a Past. A man who might be more trouble than he's worth.

Por Llegir
Formato:Versión Kindle
I usually adore Marion Keyes - but this one was a real let down. I was convinced I'd love it after so many rave reveiws - how wrong I was! I finished it simply because I never put a book down - as you never know - it may well get better. It didn't. More than anything I found the main character incredibly annoying and the storyline wanting.

Aunque los temas que trata M. Keyes son trágicos, lo hace con tanto ingenio que son muy divertidos de leer. Es divertida y refrescantes. Me encanta toda la saga de las hermanas Walsh!

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Marian Keyes does it again 25 de julio de 2000
Por Bryna L. Reed - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa dura
There is a reason Marian Keyes is one of my favorite authors. I think I read this book nearly two years ago. I was first introduced to Marian Keyes when my husband bought me Watermelon. When I finished it I knew I needed to have more! That began my search for her books. That is when I found Amazon.co.uk. I ordered everything she had written and pre-ordered one of her books that wasn't published yet. All of the books were well worth the extra cost to ship overseas and well worth purchasing from the UK. Rachel's holiday became my favorite. Which was amazing because I swore that I couldn't find a more entertaining book than Watermelon.
Rachel's Holiday is a wonderfully entertaining book about Rachel, the sister of Watermelon's heroine Claire. Rachel is addicted to drugs and alcohol and nearly ruins her life although she thinks there isn't anything wrong. She looks at rehab as a "holiday", she could use a vacation anyway, and she might get to see some celebrities while she is there. This isn't your typical book about a 20-something hitting rock bottom and having to pick up the pieces of the life she has ruined. The story is so witty and so funny that I laughed out loud but it is much more than that. I really fell in love with this book and the author. I wait for her books the way kids wait for Harry Potter!
Buy this book and you won't be disappointed. Better yet buy all of Marian Keyes' books.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A wonderfully entertaining and enlightening read! 27 de julio de 2000
Por Amazon Customer - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa dura
I thoroughly enjoyed Rachel's Holiday by Marian Keyes. First of all, the depth of information it gave about addiction was astounding -- Ms. Keyes really seems to have done her research. I don't see how anyone could become an addict after reading this book!
What I especially found interesting was the dichotomy of Rachel's viewpoints -- she thought one way while she was still abusing drugs (and when she first started at the treatment center), and a completely different way when she began to recover. There were people she considered "stingy" or "no fun" while she was abusing drugs; she later realized they were only trying to help her. On the other side of the coin, there were people she used to think were almost godlike, and she finally realized that these people were human just like her -- and not really as great as she originally made them out to be.
Above all, though, I found this book entertaining. Marian Keyes has a wonderfully wicked sense of humor that I can truly appreciate. I'm starting to figure out that I really like books told in the first person; this book and Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married (which I read first) both drew me in with their cozy girl-talk style. I know this is a major cliche, but I really did not want to put this book down -- I felt so involved in everything that was happening to Rachel.
The only problem I found with the book is that I thought the ending was a little too convenient and a tad too predictable. Anyone who read it kind of knew how it would end about a quarter of the way through the book. That in itself was not necessarily so bad; to me, a lot of the enjoyment in a book is watching the journey from point A to point B, even if you already know what point B is. (This is a key philosophy to keep in mind when reading romance novels.) However, it seems to me Rachel should have had to work a little harder for that outcome than she actually did.
All in all, though, it was a very pleasant, worthwhile read, and I'm looking forward to reading more of Ms. Keyes' books.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas funny, good catchy story 24 de enero de 2001
Por Henning Henning - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa dura
I read this story a couple of days after I read Watermelon (also by Marian Keyes) and I liked it even better. Rachel's Holiday is a perfect choice if you are looking for some quality light reading. Keyes still uses the same technique as in Watermelon, where Rachel talks directly to us and therefor is our only source of information about herself in the first half of the book. Later we get some more information about her trough the metings with others. It is written in the same chatty, humorous tone that makes all of Keyes' novels such a pleasure to read, but this story is a little different and a little more daring.
When we first meet her, she is about to be admitted to the Cloisters, a Irish sort of Betty Ford Clinic. She is in denial. Anyone who has had personal experience with addicts (of one kind or another) will recognize how they may fool you (and sometimes themselves). In the first part of the book, she seems pretty shallow and definitely a bit dense, but she grows as a person through her therapy and her friendships with other recovering addicts. Rachel has not really got a clue about who she is in the beginning and why she is becoming an addict. She develops as a person in and trough the story and grows to become something more than a cartoon figure or a heroine of a cheap weekly magazine story. Keyes has written this story with much fine humor and I laughed out loud many times to the great fun of those who were around me.
Two warnings: Highbrows who do not enjoy light reading should stay away from this book and secondly if you do not like happy endings of any kind, please also stay away from this book.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Serious topic inside of a good read 9 de agosto de 2000
Por "erin_g" - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa dura
I read this book a few months ago after much internet hunting trying to find it so I didn't have to wait for its US release.
While Keyes' previous works have also dealt with serious subjects, they were underlying, not at all the main topic in the book. This book, however, takes a hard look at addiction. While she does it with humor, she doesn't necessarily sugarcoat it. I especially appreciated that it was the main character's point of view the story was coming from. This book is written in first person, which I like, but at first you may find it rather disconcerting. The story coming directly from Rachel helped me to relate to what addiction is like, how hard it is to overcome. In the beginning, I actually found myself truly wondering if she was an addict. That kind of scares me. It told me why addicts have such a hard time overcoming.
I don't want to scare anyone off in making them think that this is an depressing, deep book filled with sorrow and woe. It's not. It's very funny at times. I love the way the family interacts. I think they're a lot like most families, just most families would never admit it. If you've read Watermelon then you've already been introduced to the family, if you haven't, read it. It doens't really matter which one you read first. Just enjoy them.

Por Busy Mom - Publicado en Amazon.com

Ok, someone told me that Rachel (the main character) tends to get really whiney and bratty. Well, I didn't find that at all. I can relate to Rachel with her insecurities and low self-esteem, and though I have never been a drug addict, I still know enough of the reasons why Rachel chose to escape into drugs. While Rachel is in the Cloisters, she still retains her sense of humor throughout one of the most painful periods in her life. Marian Keyes is one of the best modern-day fiction writers. She knows her readers and she knows the average woman with her insecurities and uncertainities. I have found myself laughing out loud in some places as I can relate so well Rachel. If you are a Bridget Jones fan, this one is even better. For one thing, it's longer and it's funnier and sad in some places. After all, who hasn't felt unattractive, fat and still lust after a man? Or have troubled relations with their parents and siblings? This book is a must read for women (and men if they can understand a woman's point of view!). It is a perfect book for those long dreary winter days. Not only is it poignant in some places, it is funny and it does have a happy ending. What more can a reader ask?
