Description

Irish duo Sarah Breen and EmerMcLysaght admitted emotions were running high as the final instalment of their popular series of novels hit shelves on Monday. we’re pulling out of the driveway, the atmosphere between us in the car a little warmer than in the diningroom, but there’s still a strange tension, hanging around like a ferocious smell. It’s even worse when the lads in question are all from Knocknamanagh Rangers hurling team because, in fairness to them, they’re very fit. Aisling commutes to work in Dublin at PensionsPlus and enjoys the comforts of living with her parents, who coddle and support her.

One of the most remarkable things about OMGWACA is that there isn't so much as a tiny bit of meanness in it. I suspect (although have not followed the Facebook group so can’t be sure) – that it started off with lots of the jokes off the Facebook page – but then had to be filled out with proper novel!With everyone from their small village moving forward in their lives, Aisling wants to move on to the next step too but when things go quickly south with John, Aisling soon finds herself living in a new apartment with new friends and new possibilities all on the horizon. This book is written with such a huge amount of warm, Irish wit that it is so easy to immerse yourself in Aisling's life and you quickly feel like you have become one of the family.

I had heard so much about this book before I started to read it and was wary that it could never live up to the hype but it surpasses the hype in my opinion and I will be first in line at the cinema when it hits the big screen.

Aisling seems to be one of those curvaceous, middle-aged before her time Irish girls whose only dream is the house that their Daddy will build them once they get married. She also appears to be the annoying office busybody who leaves passive-aggressive notes for their co-workers about the fridge and the dishwasher.

It started when two college friends (from Carlow and Kildare) decided to share their observations about a certain type of Irish country girl with a wider audience. It's a really sweet book, an ideal one to read over the Christmas holidays, just be prepared for a lot of emotion.

I can't tell you about the plot because I didn't read enough to know what the plot was about -although I was already concerned about her father's appearance - my apologies. Back then, we spent manys the hungover Sunday talking absolute nonsense while eating corn snacks under blankets.

Aisling is the friend we all wish we had; she's the sensible one when we go out and always makes sure that we get back home safely and she's the one to go to for money saving tips and best deals. I didn’t enjoy the endless modern Irish cultural references (and man are they endless) and the pointless addition of the abortion storyline just because that’s a ‘hot topic’ in Ireland at the moment. It was quite easy imagining myself sitting down somewhere with a cup of coffee and a piece of cake and have Aisling tell me all about her family, flatmates, colleagues and friends. So maybe a few things were slightly over the top, some a tad stereotypical and some a bit predictable, but it really didn’t matter.

I was sort of intrigued, then thought better of it and didn't download the book, then my obsessive need to complete finish tasks made me download the book anyway. Aisling (which, thanks to a long ago read Maeve Binchy novel I actually know how to pronounce) is a gas, a scream, a hoot and fiercely funny - to everyone else. You might think everything is rosy for Aisling: she is in a long term relationship with her boyfriend, John, but even Aisling is starting to wonder when one of the weddings she goes to will be her own.More chick-lit than I usually read, I adored the sharply observed characters and the whimsy in this. Außer ihrem Job und ihren Eltern, hat sie nach der Trennung von John, überhaupt keine richtige Konstante… doch nochmal zurück zum Anfang. Der Schreibstil ist wirklich angenehm zu lesen und es war eine nette Geschichte für zwischendurch, doch habe ich stellenweise schlichtweg etwas anderes erwartet. Aisling ist zwar etwas älter als ich aber steckt in einer ganz ähnlichen Situation: alle Freundinnen um sie herum heiraten, bauen Häuser und / oder bekommen Kinder. The end kind of came up from nowhere and ends were left loose which isn't my thing, but still, a good read.
