I thought of life's many bounties, to have known the extremities of joy and sorrow, love, crossed love and unrequited love, success and failure, fame and slaughter. I thought parts of the book were truly splendid and some parts were completely tedious. it was one of those books that feels like a huge weight lifted off your shoulder when it is finished.

I am unsure what I am reviewing. There is "The Country Girls", "Country Girls" and "Country Girl" all by Edna O'Brien.
The last one is her life story and makes a long and fascinating read. One of the others is in the form of a play which I did not like at all. The other is the story of two young girls in Ireland and this makes good reading- the sort of novel where you ask "I wonder what happened next. Having read the autobiography, I wanted to read more of the works of Edna O'Brien, but was disappointed that there were no Kindle editions.

I recommend that because of the confusing titles, you download a sample first to ensure you have the required book and not wate money like I did

Written at a very young age, THE COUNTRY GIRLS established Edna O'Brien very early as an important Irish novelist, and in later books she would continue the adventures of her two heroines here, Caithleen (Kate) and Birdget (Baba), in their search for love and a place in the world. This comic novel is very much in the tradition of number of other much-loved comic Bildungsromans by other twentieth-century women novelists: I CAPTURE THE CASTLE by Dodie Smith, THE PURSUIT OF LOVE by Nancy Mitford, and (perhaps surpisingly) GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES by Anita Loos. As in all those other novels, the central two characters are used as contrasts: Kate, the narrator, is bookish and romantic, while the hard-edged Baba is out for experience and novelty. The settings of ruined country estate, convent school and Dublin boarding house add to the novelty of o'Brien's work (as does the simple lilting prose), but the greatest treat here is the character of Baba: pragmatic, mocking, alternately cruel and sentimental, she is one of the funniest characters in this subgenre of fiction , and one of the most memorable.

Was like a book unedited-so much detail and no point to it? Like a conversation but an everyday one and led nowhere. Would not recommend as I felt just stopped mid sentence ....

I didn't figure out until too late that this is the drama ADAPTATION of the original. Bought it in haste. What about a kindle edition of the original???

Edna O'Brien should be commended for telling hard truths about a female coming of age experience in small town Ireland in the post WWII era. However, I found the book somewhat frustrating mostly because the characters didn't seem to grow very much despite their many and varied experiences.

I should have paid more attention when I ordered this because I thought it was a series of novels, but it's a series of plays. That's okay, but I was caught by surprise.

Through public broadcasting I had heard about how great Edna OBians Country Girls was/is. I did not under stand that it was written as a play and for me, it just ended abruptly. It was disappointng. Perhaps in the day, it was interesting or shocking, but not for me.
