Sheila O Flannagan is a highly intelligent woman. It is ironic that she has made her name in this fluffiest of all book genres.

Sheila O Flannagan is a highly intelligent woman. Like Mavis Cheek, Santa Montefiore and Joanna Trollope, she writes about inceredibly boring people.

Sheila O'Flanagan has written a really good story about " love at first sight". Whilst being somewhat predictable I nevertheless thoroughly enjoyed this light hearted tale. The two main characters were very likeable as were the extended family.

Sheila O’Flanagan pursued a very successful career in banking, foreign exchange dealing, and treasury management before becoming a full-time writer based in Dublin. She also writes a weekly column for the Irish Times and in her spare time plays badminton at competition level. Библиографические данные. Издание: перепечатанное. 0743470443, 9780743470445.

Stunning her friends and family when she accepts the marriage proposal of Ben Russell, air traffic controller Carey Browne is determined to go through with the wedding, until she discovers that Ben has not been entirely honest with her and she begins to wonder if he just might be too good to be true. First published in Great Britain in 2003 by Headline Book Publishing"-Title page verso. The original books is too bright.

Carey's about to find out whether she and Ben are for keeps or if it was just a holiday romance in this feel-good bestseller from the author of THE MISSING WIFE. A must-read for fans of Kerry Lonsdale, Liane Moriaty and Carolyn Brown. P-line: ℗ 2018 Headline Publishing Group Ltd. Show more. Seems a little quiet over here.

I just read this book a few weeks ago, and last night while I was sitting in my car I started thinking about it again, and am now re-reading it. I am a fan of O'Flanagan's books, and this one did not let me down. It is just such a good story. Okay, maybe it's not totally believable, but hello!!

Mr. Brunvand's book is a delight to read simply as a collection of Urban Legends - the stories play on our love of fun, irony, mischief, coincidence or even morbid twists of fate. But anyone could compile a bunch of urban legends. The real meat of the book is in Mr. Brunvand's analysis of each legend, or group of legends. It is pretty amazing to see him trace the origins of each legend and pick apart the contents. Several of the legends actually have their root in real events, but most are pure fancy. Why do I give it only a four star rating? I save the fifth for truly outstanding books. This one is fun, but not a must-read.
Format of the book: The author divides the book into chapters based on the theme of the legends. Each chapter has many legends (from his "files"), interspersed with his analysis. In his analysis, he may talk about the feasibility of a legend, the origin, other occurrances of the same or similar legends in history, or sociological aspects of the legend.
"Parental advisory": A few of the legends have some somewhat twisted sexual content.
So bottom line: Fun book - it will keep you entertained and give you the upper hand next time someone tries to tell you one of these legends.

The histories of specific urban legends were interesting but became tiresome after a while. The legends themselves were entertaining, providing satisfying casual reading, but would not purchase any more books in the author's collection. of urban legends. Content lived up to book description.

I heard all the stories growing up. Most of them anyway. Some of them I even believe until I read this book. It is amazing how vulnerable we can be to urban legends. Just because she said that he said. Kind of like all the arguments and debates about vitamins whether they don't or do work. I recall the whole eggs debate, butter And a host of other savory items that were supposed to be really super bad for you... But I guess it was just a country crock… No pun intended

This book would make excellent summertime reading. Certainly the author's dedication to dispelling urban myths is laudable. What caught my attention was the repeated instances of the media parroting these legends in popular print and TV. To my mind this shows the real bias in the news industry-not a left-of-center political bias, but a strong tendency to substitute "human interest" and entertainment for research and critical reporting. What I was surprised to find was the lack of analysis explaining why certain myths keep returning and why the public insists on believing them. Sure, there are capsule summaries after each story, but these mainly consist of "see my book xxxx for the story behind this myth". I could be a cynic and say this is a blatant attempt to sell more books; however I think it is the annoying (to me anyway) practice of authors using themselves as sources. If I have to see "book xxx" to find out about a legend, why should read this book in the first place?

Sent to Sweden for the 17 year old granddaughter---I am sure she loved it.

Sheila O'Flanagan has written a really good story about " love at first sight". Whilst being somewhat predictable I nevertheless thoroughly enjoyed this light hearted tale . The two main characters were very likeable as were the extended family. A good feel book which I can see being enjoyed by many Amazon readers.

I took a folklore class about two years ago and we were required to get this book. It has such interesting stories, some of which give you chills, while others make you laugh or lift a brow. It served me well in my class, and while most people want to get rid of their college text books, I had to keep this one!
Fun book full of UM's that I've heard over the years and some new ones.
