    page 24 She had watched her sisters over the years, each one trying to be beautiful than the others, constantly dressing up and appearing at social events looking like a gardener s exhibit The sole purpose of which seemed to be to capture a man just like their father and then become invisible just like their mother Isn t that last line just haunting

    Quick and easy read, still funny and heart warming but the profanities view spoiler coming from a priest s mouth hide spoiler

    I love Brendan O Carroll s books Clever, funny, full of love and always with an unexpected twist at the end.

    In this prequel to the Agnes Brown series, author Brendan O Carroll hits another homerun This book is every bit as entertaining and inspiring as the previous three I found myself laughing out loud on several occasions It was so nice to finally get a bit of the back story on the friendship between Agnes and Marion Monks, her lifelong friend Even though these novels are relatively short, O Carrol manages to develop the characters and their relationships to the extent that the reader becomes invested in them I hope that O Carroll continues to write about the Brown family because I would love to learn about Anges Brown s children or even about her grandparents

    Questo e il primo romanzo della serie dedicata ad Agnes Brown, anzi, per essere corretti, e un prequel Ne avevo sentito parlare qui su GR, cosi , quando l ho visto in biblioteca, l ho preso anche se dista dai generi che sono solita leggere.Ebbene, questo libro e un biglietto di sola andata per l Irlanda di qualche decennio fa, soprattutto per chi, come me, non vi ha mai messo piede Insieme ad Agnes, ci ritroviamo nel Jarro, a Dublino Questo e romanzo corale Agnes dovrebbe esserne la protagonista e sicuramnete e quella che ha piu scene ma devo ammettere che spesso e stata messa in ombra, almeno per me, dalla sua migliore amica Marion E poi ci sono i genitori, la sorella Dolly, il prete, le amiche tutte con dei nomignoli affettuosamente bizzarri e offensivi le donne del mercato, fra cui Nelly insomma, un ritratto colorato, festivo, volgare, allegro, drammatico di un popolo forte e al contempo fragile, di gente che crede ancora nelle fate e che sa come fare a sorridere e a ridere anche di fronte alla tragedia.Un libro che si legge bene, e che a volte fa sorridere, nonostante non sia affatto comico perche ti butta dentro alla vita nel proletariato di Dublino e ci sono varie storie, se non proprio tristi, sicuramente realistiche Allo stesso modo, il modo in cui e raccontato il romanzo ti catapulta fra quella gente, ti fa conoscere gli angoli di Dublino e i modi di fare degli irlandesi Ho trovato piuttosto noiose le pagine dedicate ai genitori di Anges, quelle dove si conoscono e penso che, se la protagonista fosse stata Marion, ironica, sboccata, forte, volgare, ma indubbiamente un amica del cuore che molte ragazze vorrebbero avere, forse il libro sarebbe stato ancora meglio Ma sappiamo tutti che la protagonista e Agnes e che, prima o poi, deve sposarsi per perdere il cognome di ragazza, Reddin, e diventare la famosa Agnes Brown, la donna irlandese per eccellenza, di cui piu avanti proseguiro sicuramente la saga.

    This book is the prequel to The Mammy, The Chisellers and The Granny which I read eons ago It is about Agnes Browne before she got married Agnes Reddin.Agnes mother was the daughter of the foundry owner She was kind to the employees and learned all their names and the like She worked in accounts and helped hand out their pay.Agnes dad worked in the foundry and was a union leader How they get together is one of the great stories in the book so I won t spoil it for you.They have 2 little girls, the eldest is Agnes This is the story of her growing up and getting married in the Jarro a very poor parish in Dublin.I actually read it when it came out but had forgotten I had so I read it again I would recommend reading The Mammy before reading this one I liked this book because it shows such a different place and time Agnes and her family are well drawn characters.

    Un libro bellissimo, ironico, dolce, difficile, a volte duro la storia di una famiglia che si trova a nascere tra mille difficolt , ma che le sa affrontare anche quando potrebbero abbatterla la storia di un grande a, di battaglie per i propri diritti, di una ragazza che deve crescere troppo in fretta, di una nazione che fatica a trovare tranquillit e pace, ma nella quale i cittadini sanno continuare a sorridere e vivere insieme la storia di una ragazza straordinaria e di un amicizia forte oltre ogni ostacolo solo l inizio della storia, ed io non vedo l ora di leggere il seguito

    This is apparently the last written of a series that I will now read the rest of But this one goes back in time to tell us of how Agnes Browne gets born and lives her early childhood in the slum in north Dublin It s a charming read I look foward to The Mammy next And then I m going to watch Angelica Huston s movie Agnes Browne.

    I liked this book It painted a world in Ireland a few generations ago I could imagine, and it had the right mix of light and dark for me Sad moments, laugh out loud moments It sagged a little for me in the middle but the beginning set the scene well and I thought the ending was a strong one.
