ABOUT THE BOOK
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.
Oh My God, I am such a complete Aisling!!! From her fallen arches to her love of carbs and knowledge of points in every morsel, I connected with Aisling in a way that I have never really connected with other characters before. Maybe it is because I am Irish and therefore could relate to so much of Aisling's life and see similarities EVERYWHERE 😂 but mainly I think it was because Aisling is a little bit of everyone we know as well as a little bit of ourselves and to be honest I wouldn't want it any other way.
Aisling is solid, reliable, kind, and compassionate, and completely human and she is fed up waiting for her boyfriend, John, of seven years to pop the question. With everyone from their small village moving forward in their lives, Aisling wants to move on to the next step too but when things go quickly south with John, Aisling soon finds herself living in a new apartment with new friends and new possibilities all on the horizon. But there are some things that will never change for this truly Irish gem that will make you laugh when she isn't making you cry.
Absolutely fecking hilarious, OH MY GOD WHAT A COMPLETE AISLING is more than just a funny story - it is a story about friendship, strength, loss, and love, and getting the most out of life. There is drama, crazy antics, and pure comedic genius throughout interwoven with moments of compassion, sensitivity, and openness that really touched my heart. I had heard so much about this book before I started to read it and was wary that it could never live up to the hype but it surpasses the hype in my opinion and I will be first in line at the cinema when it hits the big screen. An absolute gem of a book and a must for all the Aislings in the world!!
Authors Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen are Aislings. Maybe not complete Aislings but about 42%. The Aisling character was conceived in their sitting room in 2008, when they began to observe the many traits, characteristics and quirks of a very particular type of Irish girl; one they identified around them and one they identified with.
