4.0 out of 5 stars sin and saintliness
A real treat to return to this gorgeous trilogy first read as a teenaged girl. Lyrical, sumptous, and well... Irish! Makes you smile and be glad to be 48! (Benjamin is my son by the way! Can't find the button to edit the name!)

1.0 out of 5 stars glue, paper etc
Just a warning. Yes, it's a brilliant trilogy, as funny and touching as you'd hope it might be (especially the justly famous Country Girls, with its fantastic last four chapters, in Dublin). But some of these larger Penguins are simply dreadful: so badly glued and put together (and printed on something like coarse loo-paper). My copy dried out after a couple of months (in...

Just a warning. Yes, it's a brilliant trilogy, as funny and touching as you'd hope it might be (especially the justly famous Country Girls, with its fantastic last four chapters, in Dublin). But some of these larger Penguins are simply dreadful: so badly glued and put together (and printed on something like coarse loo-paper). My copy dried out after a couple of months (in an ordinary house), the spine cracking and the pages coming apart. Best, perhaps, to buy single-text copies of the three novels, if you can afford it.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Country Girls Trilogy and Epilogue:, 29 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Country Girls Trilogy and Epilogue: "The Country Girls", " The Lonely Girl", "Girls in Their Married Bliss" (Paperback)
I read that this book was burnt as 'filth' when it was first published in the 1960s. By today's standards of course, it is quite tame. Even 50 years later it is still a good read. The epilogue, which was written some 20 years after the original book, is very powerful,and rounds off and completes the series very well. I am glad I read this version.
