From the Inside Flap
Everyone knows an Aisling:
Loves going Out Out, but secretly scared of liquid eyeliner.
Happy to drink the bar dry, but will bring her own coaster if necessary.
Would rather die than miss a cooked hotel breakfast, but can calculate the Points in a Snickers at fifty paces.
Aisling's the girl with a heart of gold, but a boyfriend who still hasn't made a peep about their Big Day even after seven years.
But then a disastrous romantic getaway shows Aisling that it's time to stop waiting around and leave John behind for the bright lights of Dublin. After she's wailed her way through Adele's Greatest Hits, that is.
Between glamorous new flatmates, a scandal at work and finding herself in a weird love square, Aisling is ready to take on the big city. So long as she has her umbrella with her.See all Product description

It gives a glimpse into a slightly different a Ireland than Roddy Doyle, one that exists just far enough down the motorway to be removed from Barrytown in the "Big Shmoke", and show the Ireland and the people I grew up with.
I highly recommend this well written journey of an Aishling learning that she is an Aishling, and that while being an Aishling isn't necessarily a bad thing, there are other things to be, than just being a complete Aishling.
I loved it, from beginning to end :)
Ailing, (pronounced Ashling), treats us to her roller coaster life, her friends, her smiles and her tears.
Crisp and very, very clever writing, makes this a book that is destined to become a firm favourite and already has a sequel , I hope, is the first in a long line of the life story of Ailing.
Set in Dublin and it’s countryside villages, this is a wry, witty and superb book that will keep you reading into the early hours, for “ just one more” chapter. Highly recommended.
