Book Review: Rachel’s Holiday – Marian Keyes
Title of Book
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.
What an amazing story. Rachel is a woman with a drug problem – although everyone knows it except her. She is taken to a clinic to get over the drugs, but first she has to admit she has a problem. A fantastic story, full of ‘what’s going to happen next’s in it.
