    1 thought on “Irish Girls Are Back in Town”

    1. Cecelia Ahern is one of my favourite writers of chick lit. It's wonderful to have the oppertunity to read any of the books she has written. Irish girls are back in town is a wonderful little collection of short stories which I loved but i'm still much more a fan of her full novels.I think its amazing that all of her greatest novels are set in Ireland, her birth place, she writes the descriptions so accurately that you can almost sense that you are there and her magical books are the greatest! Sh [...]

    2. Not many of these stories interested me.The were short and boring.Some didn't even make sense.And some just seemed pointless.The ones that were good were easily to figure out what was going to happen.

    3. This book is ok-ok. I learnt that I am not fond of short stories. Some stories are good, some stories are boring. On positive side, now I know which authors I will keep my eyes open for. :)

    4. I have three reasons for picking up this book. First of all, I bought this book 3 years ago when I was going through a phase of buying any book with Cecelia Ahern's name on the cover (LOVED her story in this book) and it has since been gathering dust on my bookshelf. Number two, I needed a Short Story Collection for on of my myriad reading challenges I'm participating in and it seemed a good excuse to dust this one off. Thirdly, what better way to kick off the month of March, notorious for being [...]

    5. Picked this up at Half Price Books for $1. Honestly, most of them weren’t very good, the endings were either predictable or so contrived that they felt forced. I did like “Spinning Sugar” by Morag Prunty and “Dinner with Annie” by Gemma O’Connor. A lot of the stories, all written in 2004, take place in a post 90s Ireland where there is a huge recession, where people have been let go of good paying jobs and are either destitute or working blue collar jobs. Everyone is unhappy or at le [...]

    6. My only real complaint is that the cover of this collection, and the title, doesn't quite match the tone of the stories within. The stories themselves are poignant, sometimes darkly funny, and cover quite a range of Irish womanhood, with most of the characters in their late twenties to their sixties. Not an instant favorite, but a welcome edition to my shelves 'to keep' as it were.

    7. Carrot for Breakfast by Rosaleen Linehan: who cannot relate to this one?Secret Letter Writers by Catherine Foley: a tad confusing on the end but, a good read none the less. Dinner with Annie by Gemma O'Connor: nice twist to the devoted husband & trophy wife. The End (of Their Affair) by Aine Greany: two people thinking the same thing. Interesting.

    8. Pretty good. A lot seemed to have unfinished endings. Not very satisfactory. And quite raunchy considering it was a fundraiser for children. But maybe I'm just too American. ;)I really just read it for Cecelia Ahern. Hers was good too but I prefer her full length stories and all the magic woven in.

    9. This book was a wonderful group of short stories by Irish women writers for a children's charity group.The stories covered very intimate women's topics and I loved them all.Why is it that Irish women write so well.There is one from Maeve Binchy in this book, so it you like Maeve Binch, you will like this book.Great bedtime reading.

    10. Some of these short stories were really great, though unfortunately most of them seemed to be based on death. There were two or three stories that I did like enough to look further into the authors, but for the most part I did not get into the stories at all.

    11. There are some really great stories here and some so-so stories. I love the short stories format though. You can just read one a night and feel happy. Irish storytellers are the best though. (I used this as number 12 on the Book Bingo challenge - A book of short stories)

    12. Most of them weren’t very good, the endings were predictable. There were about 3 of them that I really liked

    13. Ahern did it again!!! Her story was my favorite, but I am bias toward her writing. It was a good one overall.

    14. I'm not really a short story person. Some are good, others are just so-so or terrible. Too many stories with no real unifying theme other than they are written by Irish authors.

    15. Essay collections are always so hit and miss. This one had many more misses than I usually have. OK but not super.

    16. This is a collection of Irish female authors. Some are good and some not so good. Ahern's was my favorite!
