Review

'It's refreshing to enter O'Carroll's fun-loving working-class world.' (Entertainment Weekly)

'Shades of O'Casey, as well as Brendan Behan. A story as colourful as Moore Street itself, but there is also pathos, compassion and irony.' (Entertainer)

'A natural storyteller.' (The Independent)

'This lively novel features a wedding, a funeral and an ending that will melt the hardest heart. Readers will eagerly await the third book in this series.' (Publishers Weekly) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

The second book in the Agnes Browne trilogy, the basis for the BAFTA-award winning TV series Mrs Brown’s Boys. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

24 of 24 people found the following review helpful By taking a rest HALL OF FAME on 27 Jan. 2003
Format: Paperback
A sequel to a wonderful book is inherently at risk. For when it is to be read by a person familiar with the initial experience, part two is almost predestined to be disappointment. Book one has the advantage of introducing all that is new. The final of the three can tie all the experiences together, can bring closure. But the middle event must maintain the reader's enthusiasm. When the story and its execution are excellent, the reader is enthusiastic for the final event. The last book is not read just to complete the cycle. Happily there are no absolutes, exceptions ensure that there will be pleasant surprises, not all repeated experience need be as expected.

With, "The Chisellers", Mr. Brendan O'Carroll has repeated the brilliance of, "The Mammy", without resorting to repeating himself as a writer, or forcing his characters to remain unchanged. This writer brings all of the people you love in part one and he allows them to evolve as a person would in their own life. The mood of this book is different, but is also a natural progression. The Browne Clan is getting older; adulthood envelops some, while it still awaits the younger children. Agnes too is aging, adapting to the dramatic changes she was forced to cope with in the first book. However as I mentioned when commenting upon, "The Mammy", Mr. O'Carroll tells a wonderful story, which happens to take place with an Irish Family. While it is true this brings with it some detail that may be familiar, the fact that this is an Irish Family is never what drives this book. He never allows his work to cheat and use the easy cliché.

The Author also brings to this wonderful trilogy people that are not Catholic, that are not Irish, and they are not by default the evil players.

This book was great, just like the Mammy Brendan O'Carroll has managed to keep the Browne family saga together and with it kept me entertained so much that I wanted to read the Granny to find out what happens next. When reading about Agnes Browne and her brood I felt a part of it and wanted it never to end - IT WAS GREAT!

Format: Paperback
Second in the Agnes Browne series, The Chisellers tells us about how Agnes and her family cope with moving to Finglas from the Jarro; how Mark Browne becomes the real 'man of the house' and saves a business from sinking; and how Francis (Frankie) Browne alienates his family and ends up living a life of crime and paying the ultimate price for his addictions.

Another great read.

out of the 3 books in the sequel this is the one I liked the least. It is the middle one of the three books and I was really disappointed with this one.

No where near as good or as funny as The Mammy but still worth purchasing in order to complete the series of books.
