Kurzbeschreibung

1. Februar 2003
Ah go on...tell us.
New York Times bestselling authors Maeve Binchy and Marian Keyes top an impressive roster of the Emerald Isle's most popular women writers and prove that when it comes to spinning a good yarn, the Irish are the best in the business. Showcasing dazzling wit and remarkable insight in short stories that run the gamut from provocative to poignant, these Irish women will tug at your heartstrings and have you crying with laughter in no time.

She did what?!
In Maeve Binchy's "Carissima," a longtime ex-pat and free spirit returns to Ireland from Sicily and shakes things up for her family, who finds her life utterly scandalous. In "Soulmates," by Marian Keyes, one woman's relationship is so bleedin' perfect in every way that it's driving her friends up the wall. In Cathy Kelly's "Thelma, Louise and the Lurve Gods," two women on a madcap, Stateside road trip have completely opposite reactions to a pair of insanely good-looking men. In these stories, and throughout this fabulous collection, Ireland's finest women authors celebrate the joys and perils of love, the adventure and constancy of female friendships, and their own irresistible brand of Irish charm.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant collection of short stories 20. August 2002
Von Caro
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is a great read of brilliant short stories. I have enjoyed reading every single one in just a few days and I was very sorry when I had finished the last one. It makes you wanting to go out and read the novels of each author in this book. It should be called collection of short novels instead!!!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic!!! 2. Januar 2003
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I loved this book. Especially stories from Cathy Kelly, Maeve Binchy, Annie Sparrow and Marisa Mackle. Every story was different and thoroughly enjoyable. Sometimes, in a collection of short stories you do not know what to expect. But this collection will not dissapoint! Well worth the read!

5.0 von 5 Sternen SIXTEEN SMART IRISH SHORT STORIES 17. Februar 2003
Von S. Calhoun - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I am a fan of short stories and IRISH GIRLS ABOUT TOWN was certainly not a disappointment. This book is a collection of sixteen short stories of the newest and best Irish women writers of pop fiction. Each story is focused on some aspect of a woman's love or involvement with a man. Many are written with smart insights and witty humor which I enjoyed much. Among them there are several that resonated with me after I put the book down including "Soulmates" by Marian Keyes (envy is a negative human quality); "The Twenty-Eighth Day" by Catherine Barry (a very funny take on PMS); "The Cup Runneth Over" by Julie Parsons (marital affairs can burn both conspiring partners); "The Ring Cycle" by Martina Devlin (a wedding ring just won't go away); and "The Unlovable Woman" by Annie Sparrow (sometimes the best things are right before our eyes).
IRISH GIRLS ABOUT TOWN is an excellent means to get acquainted with Irish women authors who you may have previously been unfamiliar with. At the end of each story there is a short bio which makes it easy to pursue other works by authors that you enjoyed. In addition, there are also authors that are already well known such as Maeve Binchy. Another good quality of IRISH GIRLS ABOUT TOWN is that all benefits goes towards charity. As explained in the book's forward, The Society of St. Vincent de Paul and Barnardo's are two organizations that brings great benefits to the people of Ireland, Britian and the world. Read this book, and you may just be as entertained as I was. Enjoy!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Chock-full of Irish Charm 27. Januar 2003
Von Dianna Setterfield - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I'm normally not a fan of short story collections, but two of my favorite authors, Maeve Binchy and Marian Keyes, contributed so I thought I'd give it a shot. I must say that this is one of the better collections I've read. All of the stories were interesting with the exception of one that I didn't particularly care for. However, the reading experience was very relaxing and most of the stories were fun and easy to read.
My favorite story is the one told by Cathy Kelly about two friends who take a roadtrip in the United States. I also enjoyed the offering by Morag Prunty about an older, single woman who takes a chance on answering a personal ad. The one I didn't really care for was by Gemma O'Conner -- her writing ability is not the complaint; the story didn't make sense to me and definitely did not fit in the "about town" or "irish girls" theme.
The best thing about this book is the fact that it gave me the chance to sample stories by new-to-me Irish authors. Plus the short story format made it easy to read along with another novel. I highly recommend this collection, especially to readers who aren't fans of short stories. I think this one might turn a few heads.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A gem! 29. Januar 2003
Von CoffeeGurl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
What brilliant idea to have Ireland's most gifted female writers put together in a gem of a book! Irish Girls About Town is every chick lit enthusiast's dream come true. My favorite stories are the ones from Marian Keyes, Maeve Binchy and Cathy Kelly. However, newcomer Marisa Mackle's "Girls' Weekend" is the best one out of the bunch. I was so impressed with her sharp wit that I purchased her debut novel, Mr. Right for the Night. This book is a true gem and I couldn't recommend it enough!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great Fun for Women Everywhere... 9. Februar 2003
Von emt0402 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
While I am not a big fan of short stories, I had to have "Irish Girls About Town". Maeve Binchy and Marian Keyes are two of my favorite authors and what can I say? I couldn't resist. These short stories are full of fun, life, and adventure in which any woman (not just the Irish!) can relate. "Irish Girls About Town" covers a wide range of topics, from PMS, to the simple joys of friendship, finding the perfect someone, heartbreak, and so much more.
Surprisingly, my favorite stories did not come from my favorite authors. Annie Sparrow's "The Unlovable Woman" had me laughing and rolling my eyes as at a woman who can't see the love of her life directly in front of her. "Moving" by Collette Caddle is another personal favorite. Out of 16 stories, only two seemed lacking. Julie Parson's "My Cup Runneth Over" was a bit darker and tried to pack too much into too small a space. "Your Place or Mine" suffered from the same. Other then that, this is a wonderful book. If you are fans of Binchy, Kelly, or Keyes; do not pass it up. I didn't and because of that, I have discovered some wonderful writers and got some wonderful stories in the process!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wow! 22. Januar 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is an absolute must for the bedside table. The best thing about a book of short stories is that you can pick it up and put it down, but I found it extremely difficult to put this book down. Maeve Binchy is her usual self - a compelling storyteller but there are a few surprises here...newcomer Marisa Mackle's short story was a gripping, laugh-out-loud read and I loved short stories by Collette Caddle, Marian Keyes and Sarah Webb. Julie Parson's story has a great twist at the end and Mary Ryan's story was v. amusing but surprisingly there isn't a dissappointing story in this collection - a rare feat when you get 17 authors together. All in all I give this a fantastic 10 out of 10 recommendation!!!
