Publisher's Summary

Tara, Katherine, and Fintan, friends since adolescence, are full proof that eccentricity is the spice of life. Strikingly different, yet worryingly similar, they all moved from rural Ireland to London to "seize the day" - or something like that. Now in their early 30s, success, on the surface, has made little change: The impressive, coolly controlled Katherine is a successful accountant, who doesn't really mind being nicknamed "Icequeen" by her male colleagues. Computer expert Tara is a compulsive dieter whose mission in life is to find a lipstick that doesn't come off. And fashion guru Fintan's aim seems to be to make everyone else's life more interesting - one way or another.

Great but chapters need refining

Loved the story (even if it took a while to get going) but it annoyed me that the chapters didn’t match up. There are nearly 70 actual chapters in this book but only 16 segments of 1 hour audio which makes it hard to use sleep timer for etc. otherwise a great book!

Doesn’t disappoint

As always Marian keeps you wanting more and more. You fall in love with the characters and wish there was a sequel to every book. Last Chance Saloon was a great read. Narrator was really good, some accents were a bit strange.

Deeper Chick Lit

One of Ms. Keyes best novels. Her characters are all very human and the story is very conceivable. Good ending- I wish she would write a sequel on some of the characters like she did with the Walsh sisters in "Rachel's Holiday"

Excellent Chicklit!

What did you love best about The Last Chance Saloon?

The way the links between the characters came clear in the end, and all were tied together in some way. The story was entertaining and slightly twisty.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Chance Saloon?

Lorkin Larkin getting his comeuppance!

Have you listened to any of Juanita McMahon’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Juanita McMahon was excellent as always. Love the accents, and the characters were very consistent in their nuances.

Any additional comments?

A bit long winded at times when you are just thinking "for god's sake Tara, just stop eating! Just dump Thomas!". Overall a very enjoyable listening experience, bit boring in the middle, but didn't want it to end!

The Last Chance Saloon

I have been reluctant to purchase this audio book but am immensely grateful that I have eventually done so. The well chosen narrator brings the story alive. This novel,like all of Marian Keyes others ,is fantastic. It's full of realistic characters, so well developed that I find myself wondering what they will do next as if the story carries on some where beyond the fictional realm of this great book. Well worth the listen/read.

Appalling narration

Love the storyline and the characters but unfortunately I must agree with others this was appalling try of imitating Irish accent. It really sounded 'oirish'. Really sad as I love MK books and this one would be a definitely come back but I guess I will rather read than listen.
