  • Comic, convincing and true. Grown Ups has an almost Austenesque insight into character. Keyes knows how to make serious issues relatable - and get a few grownup laughs, too

  • Messy, tangled complex humans who reminded me that few of us ever really sort out our lives at all

    Jojo Moyes
  • Magnificently messy lives, brilliantly untangled. Funny, tender and completely absorbing!

    Graham Norton
  • I loved every word of Grown Ups. I will be missing those gorgeous vibrant characters for many weeks to come. There should be a word to describe the sadness and satisfaction you feel when you read the last page of a Marian Keyes novel: the ending is perfect but you still want more, more, more

    Liane Moriarty
  • I LOVED Grown Ups so much. It's SUCH a treat. I felt like I was rolling in PURE JOY throughout. The cleverest cream cake of words

    Caitlin Moran
  • You may have written the best book of your career

    Chris Evans, Virgin Radio
  • Funny and moving, with an acute eye for family foibles

    Ian Rankin, bestselling author of the John Rebus thrillers
  • It is charming, funny and poignant. But also profound, heartbreaking. If you already love Marian, this is her best yet. If you haven't read her, this is the one

    Nina Stibbe
  • Marian Keyes shows superb skill at tackling tough themes in this tale of a clan with secrets. Grown Ups is a warm-hearted, wise and highly entertaining portrayal of how families behave; and of the love and tolerance required to sustain our closest relationships

    Hannah Beckerman, Observer
  • A novel that is warm and witty but never afraid to tackle the big stuff

    Elizabeth Day, Mail on Sunday
