Sushi for Beginners (Paperback) by Marian Keyes (
Keyes does an amazing job of pulling the reader into the story and into the characters lives. I felt like I knew every character in this book, and though I liked some and not others, I was sad to see them go. From start to finish I could not put this one down. I was amazed how my feelings for the characters shifted as the complexities of each person was revealed. Just as each of them experienced a range of emotions, so did I. I loved the way the stories of everyone intertwined and unraveled as I turned the pages. And I loved the way this book ended -- It was all a complete surprise, and yet I was thrilled with how it all turned out.
