Agnes Browne Series Brendan O'Carroll. The Young Wan. Brendan O'Carroll. The Granny by Brendan O'Carroll is the third and last book in the trilogy which began with The Mammy. And its only fitting that in my opinion this is the best book of the three. It's hard to believe that the girl Agnes of The Young Wan and mother and widow of The Mammy is now a grandmother but that's exactly what happens when her oldest son's wife has a baby.

The final book in the Agnes Browne trilogy

The final book in the Agnes Browne trilogy. At forty-seven years of age Agnes, now thirteen years happily widowed, enters the 1980s with a fruit stall in Moore Street, a French lover and six children, five of them in their twenties. Becoming a grandmother is a terrible shock to her system, especially as Agnes suffers every one of her daughter-in-law's labour pains! And as the family expands so do the problems -one son's inevitable brush with the law, the heartbreak of emigration.

Read The Granny, by Brendan O'Carroll online on Bookmate – The final book in the Agnes Browne trilogy. But Agnes Browne is nothing if not a fighter, and she squares her shoulders, offers up a quick one to her departed pal, Marion, and sets about getting things back on an even keel - or as even as things ever get in the Brown household! The same quick-fire dialogue, hilarious humour and great characterisation as in Brendan's bestselling The Mammy, filmed as Agnes Browne by Angelica Huston, and the BAFTA-winning TV series Mrs Brown’s Boys.

The New York Times Book Review praised Brendan O'Carroll's first novel, The Mammy, as "Cheerful...as unpretentious and satisfying as a home-cooked meal...with a delicious dessert of an ending." With the forthcoming second book in the trilogy, The Chisellers, and a movie about The Mammy (entitled Agnes Browne) on the horizon, the world is discovering O'Carroll's uniquely Irish blend of warmth and grittiness, comedy and pathos, as he elevates the lives of ordinary working-class Dublin people—and one extraordinary family—into tales that are small in size but epic in emotion. With the final installment, The Granny, our comedic and lovable heroine, Agnes Browne, has a French lover, six children in their twenties—including one in prison—and a wee grandchild of her own. But the world is spinning fast for Agnes—especially considering that her lover wants her to become "a sexual animal" and that her family's far-flung fortune is beyond her control. The members of the Browne family split up to make it in the world on their own until a tragedy brings the brood back together again—and love keeps them that way forever.

My mother loved reading Angela's Ashes so I was looking for a similar book for her. This was recommended. I took a chance and bought all three books by Brendan O'Carroll ( The Chisellers, The Granny and The Mammy ). You know it's a good book when you hear your 84 year old mother laughing out loud while reading it. She breezed through all three books non stop.

All his books are marvelous. They put you right into the environment. A thoroughly enjoyable and gritty slice of life.

THE GRANNY marks the end of Brendan O'Carroll's trilogy that started with the stellar lead novel, THE MAMMY, and bridged with the fair to in-the-middling THE CHISELLERS. I heartily recommend the lead-off book of this slice-of-Irish life series because stand-up comic O'Carroll pulls out all the stops (OK, most of them) and the humor is, at times, stop and laugh-out-loud funny -- a rarity, as any humor-loving reader can tell you.

This book, along with the middle one, has a few funny moments, too, but they're not quite as often or as strong as with the first. Instead, O'Carroll gets caught up in an Irish soap opera of sorts as he covers the fortunes and misfortunes of "All Agnes' Children." Alas, there are many (children, I mean) and O'Carroll is forced to cover a lot of ground in a few pages, making things a bit thin at times.

Still, the plot is good fun and the character of Agnes Browne is irresistibly irreverent. If you don't have time for the trilogy but have an interest in earthy, Irish humor, treat yourself at the very least to THE MAMMY.

An amazing book by one of the most important entertainers of the 21st century. If you do not know Brendan O'Carroll or 'Mrs. Brown's Boys' please look them up.

Famines are complete with several generations. A picture of the life and times and the sorrows and happiness in life.

The Granny gains momentum as the family blossoms and goes in different directions.

Agnes Browne, once The Mammy, now finds herself called The Granny!

She takes on the role with her usual good-humor and somewhat naive persona...always full of spunk and quick Irish humor, she is a force to be reckoned with as her children and grandchildren carve out their own lives.

I was a little saddened to turn the last page on this heart-felt and humorous Browne family trilogy....I will miss them!
Highly recommended!

I put off reading this for quite a while. Only because I didn't feel ready to say goodbye. The final book in the Agnes Browne series, The Granny finds Agnes in middle age, her children grown and flown the nest. It is both lighthearted and bitter sweet as are the previous books. Sprinkled generously with humor through out. All good things must come to an end but I miss you already Agnes Browne.
I loved this book. It is part of a trilogy and every one is great. I loved the people. It has laugh out loud parts and get the tissue parts. Being Irish myself, there was a lot to relate to.
