The Granny by Brendan O'Carroll

Into the Wild

Read The Granny Online Free - The New York Times Book Review praised Brendan O'Carroll's first novel, The Mammy, as "Cheerful...as unpretentious and satisfying as a home-cooked meal...with a delicious dessert of an ending." With the forthcoming second book in the trilogy, The Chisellers, and a movie about The Mammy (entitled Agnes Browne) on the horizon, the world is discovering O'Carroll's uniquely Irish blend of warmth and grittiness, comedy and pathos, as he elevates the lives of ordinary working-class Dublin people--and one extraordinary family--into tales that are small in size but epic in emotion. With the final installment, The Granny, our comedic and lovable heroine, Agnes Browne, has a French lover, six children in their twenties--including one in prison--and a wee grandchild of her own. But the world is spinning fast for Agnes--especially considering that her lover wants her to become "a sexual animal" and that her family's far-flung fortune is beyond her control. The members of the Browne family split up to make it in the world on their own until a tragedy brings the brood back together again--and love keeps them that way forever.

The indomitable Agnes Browne of Dublin is back and continues to be a force of nature in this 1996 conclusion of O’Carroll’s trilogy. Her brood of six children are getting older, moving out, and starting families of their own. We open with the clan assembled at the hospital for the birth of her fi...

Such an emotional book, extremely different to the show, but I loved it - and the two before it - immensely. It actually made me laugh out loud at some points, before breaking my heart at the very end.

"Alla bellissima Agnes Browne ... Benvenuta, nonna!" Gran bel personaggio Agnes Browne per chi ha già avuto modo di conoscerla e per chi la incontra per la prima volta in uno dei romanzi di Brendan O'Carroll. Questo è il terzo romanzo della saga di Agnes Browne, proletaria, forte, bella e ormai ve...

This book was amazing. The best of the trilogy. All three books were incredible but this last one made me laugh and cry like I never have with any other book I've read. Brendan O'Carroll is a wonderfully descriptive writer, taking you right into the family of the story. You feel their pain as wel...

This is the third and final book in a trilogy about the life of Agnes Browne. There is even a movie titled Agnes Browne staring Angelica Huston based on the first book by Brendan O'Carroll titled The Mammy. All three books are quick reads and could easily be finished in a sitting. Cute stories th...

I enjoyed the trilogy very much. They aren't what I expected and I think that who reads them thinking they will be just the same as the new massively popular television series may be dissappointed. These books show Agnes Brown as much less outrageous than we see her in the show - we see a more re...

This was the last book in a trilogy that I didn't want to end . . . I fell in love with this whole family, especially Agnes Browne, and I cried at the end of her story. The characters are so incredibly real that surely, surely, these people actually exist somewhere in Ireland. . . I hope they do....

What a finale to a great book series! The only thing I don't like is that we will not hear any more about Browne clan. I would have loved to have followed this family for a few more books. O'Carroll has a way of making you actually care about the characters.

Mi è parso il migliore della trilogia, ma sempre piuttosto mediocre, sia a livello di trama, sia a livello di introspezione psicologica. Un romanzo di puro svago, diciamo.
