I loved the fact that everything about OMGWACA felt well and truly Irish, so much so that even though I can't do an Irish accent to save my life, I found myself reading in an Irish accent in my head! It takes a while to truly figure out the narrative style, and rhythm of the story, but once you’re adjusted the characters really take shape, and the whole thing becomes an enjoyable read. Für mich wirkte es so, als wären zu viele Handlungsstränge in die Story gepackt worden, sodass am Ende niemand mehr genau wusste, was jetzt im Fokus stehen soll. It's a grand read, altogether (said with typical Irish understatement), and you could do a lot worse than planning for an evening curled up on the couch with it, the good biscuits and a pot of good strong tea (or coffee, if you're like me and have caffeinated-beverage-notions).For a dyed-in-the-wool farmer, Daddy is low-key obsessed with soaps, especially the Australian ones. I saw the wonderful Marian Keyes recommend this book on Twitter (it’s already been published in Ireland – where it’s set) and then found it was to be published in the UK in May – and so I could download an advanced review copy from Netgalley – so that I did! Aisling Ever After’ is on shelves now after Ireland, while the audio book is due to be released later. It is a culture shock for the small town girl as she willingly joins their never ending rose wine and champagne drinking, the world of celebrities, new places to go out, their strange sense of fashion and ideas of cool, veganism and avocado diets. John seems happy to coast along but Aisling wouldn't be Aisling if she didn't question John's intentions, only for it to backfire and she finds herself single again after 7 years.
She’s so great at hiding treats that I found a packet of Viscounts from 2012 in the food processor two weeks ago. 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. This book is full on Irish dialogue right from the get go, I honestly had to read the opening sentence three times before I understood what it meant. Sarah Breen is a journalist whose work has appeared in Stellar , Image , U , the Irish Independent and The Gloss . Desperate for her boyfriend of seven years to propose, she finds herself in the unfortunate position of being in a toilet cubicle at yet another friend's wedding listening to two of the guests from her table chatting about her little idiosyncrasies.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. Es sind eben die kleinen oder größeren Aufregungen des Alltags an denen die Autorinnen uns teilhaben lassen. 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! She wants out of her parents’ house, although she’d miss Mammy turning on the electric blanket like clockwork and Daddy taking her car ‘out for a spin’ and bringing it back full of petrol. You’d be a child bride by today’s standards,” he adds with a hollow laugh, spraying toast crumbs onto the white linen tablecloth.
