Marian Keyes has introduced readers to the lives, loves, and foibles of the five Walsh sisters. In this funny, heartbreaking, and triumphant new tale set in the Big Apple, it's Anna's turn in the spotlight.

Life is perfect for Anna Walsh. She has the "Best Job in the World" as a PR exec for a top-selling urban beauty brand, a lovely apartment in New York, and a perfect husband -- the love of her life, Aidan Maddox. Until the morning she wakes up in her mammy's living room in Dublin with her face in stitches, a dislocated knee, and completely smashed-up hands -- and no memory of how she got there. While her mammy plays nursemaid, Anna tries to get better and keeps wondering why Aidan won't return her phone calls or emails.

Recuperating from her injuries, a mystified Anna returns to Manhattan. Slowly beginning to remember what happened, she sets off on a search to find Aidan -- a hilarious quest involving lilies (she can't stop smelling them), psychics, mediums, and anyone there who can promise her a reunion with her beloved...

Written in her classic style, marrying the darker parts of life with humor and wit, Anybody Out There? is Marian Keyes' best novel to date, wonderfully charming look at love here and ever after.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 MrsB | 9/23/2012

    " Amy H.'s choice for Book Club November 2008. Anne says I should give Marian Keyes another try because her other books are funny. I disliked this book because I don't like stories that try to be both funny and sad at the same time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alisonismail | 8/30/2011

    " Really enjoyed it, but think I might have a break from Marian Keyes now. Especially after internalising the picture on the cover of the copy of the book pictured above. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 5/6/2011

    " Not bad, but I recall liking the other Sister's books better. I lost some of the interest in the second half of the book - it just seemed to drag somewhat. And I guess I wanted her to fall in love all over again regardless of the mourning period. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Therese | 5/1/2011

    " my least favorite keyes book - tends toward the depressing side "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 4/22/2011

    " Storyline a bit weak, but its the dialogue and descriptions that make a good Marian Keyes read.. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Joy | 4/8/2011

    " Aidan is dead. This is a love story about a girl looking for her dead lover. Then at the end she moves on some. Didn't enjoy it much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zara | 4/6/2011

    " An entertaining story which kept the main twist to the plot hidden well. I found myself desperately following the life of the protagonist, Anna, unsure whether her shattered life would ever come back together. The last few pages left me curious as to what the future had in store for her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaime | 3/14/2011

    " Pretty standard Marian Keyes - well-written, sympathetic characters, emotional tugs throughout. I didn't love the storyline as much as her other books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jose | 3/8/2011

    " much fun, as always, with Marian! "
