The Brightest Star in the SkyThe Brightest Star in the Sky by Marian Keyes
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3 1/2 stars

What if you were a soul in search parents to be born to? That is the premise of this book.

A soul has been directed to 66 Star Street - four flats - where it will find at least one of it's parents. It must observe the residents and determine which of those residents will become it's parent(s). We get to spend 60 days observing the residents with this soul before it finally makes it's choice.

It is an interesting concept and the stories of each resident are very well told with humor, understanding, and emotion.

I did enjoy this book quite a bit purely for the uniqueness of perspective and the enjoyable writing. It is, however, quite a long book at 612 pages and I'm not quite sure the length is justified.
