A Vintage Shorts “Short Story Month” Original Selection It starts out like any other dull day in a busy airport bar. James, the bartender. Maeve Binchy ( - ) was born in County Dublin and educated at the Holy Fellow novelist SOPHIE KING on MAEVE BINCHY ebook of the month.

This is my 2nd time reading "Chestnut Street", the first being when it was initially released. Then I was just so happy to have anything by her so I probably was a bit more generous with my review.

This work had many signature elements such as the rich characters who draw you into their lives and problems. I am comparing her to a few of my favorite short story authors who really own the genre. I recommend this as a good read when something light and easy is wanted. Also a must read for those who are life long repeat Maeve Binchy fans. Just not representative of the masterful storyteller she really is.

I am a huge fan of Maeve Binchy, but this is a very depressing book. It is full of vignettes about people living on Chestnut street and their stories are largely unfinished. What really bothers me is most of the stories are all the same.

They almost all have a husband or boyfriend who is having an affairsometimes the wife finds out and sometimes she doesn't. It makes me wonder just what Binchy's attitude towards men really is. What I really miss is the author's usually wonderful character and plot development. My suggestion is, if you're a fan of this author, skip this book! If you're a fan of Maeve Binchy's novels and prefer novels to short stories, you probably won't like this posthumous collection as well as her earlier works.

These are loosely connected through the taxi driver character, who eavesdrops on his passengers while taking them back and forth to Chestnut Street. For instance. The passenger leaves the taxi somewhat relieved on referendum day. I liked this very much. I picked up site whenever I had a few moments to spend in Ireland with Maeve. I did miss dialog, though. It's as if reader is told the story by the narrator. This book would work really well on audio.

I became a Maeve Binchy fan many years ago. I borrowed five of my daughters Maeve Binchy books to read on our trip to Australia. The plane ride was 21 hours so I got through two of them on the way over. I was in love so read the other three when I had the chance while we were there. We were there a month but I ended up downloading several more Binchy books in Australia and read them too. I should add I am a very fast reader for those of you wondering how I could possibly have read so many books and managed to also see the beautiful scenery and sites in the state of Victoria.

So obviously I recommend all of her books. This one too a bit of getting into there were so many different characters but by the middle of the book I felt like I knew them all and they were my friends too. One person found this helpful. I did relish this as an unexpected bonus from Irish heaven: Since it's stories, first- time readers may not be caught up in the usual charm of a Binchy novel, and if you are not, please do yourself a favor and try her full novels, which are so satisfying - the earlier novels are the best, I feel.

I've often tried to explain what it is about her books I so enjoy, as I typically dont read similar genre authors.

I think it is not just the stories, but her character development, which is complete and deep, and perhaps unusual , as she always portrays people the way we really are - not black, not white, but gray.

Good people who occasionally do or think or feel 'bad' things, and bad people who have some 'good' qualities as well Most of us are gray.

CD-Audio Release Date: Read by Kate Binchy. Maeve Binchy imagined a street in Dublin with many characters coming and going, and every once in a while she would write about one of these people.

She would then put it in a drawer; ';for the future,' she would say. The future is now. Across town from St. Behind their closed doors we encounter very different people with different life circumstances, occupations, and sensibilities.

Some of the unforgettable characters lovingly brought to life by Binchy are Bucket Maguire, the window cleaner, who must do more than he bargained for to protect his son; Nessa Byrne, whose aunt visits from America every summer and turns the houseand Nessa's worldupside down; Lilian, the generous girl with the big heart and a fiance whom no one approves of; Melly, whose gossip about the neighbors helps Madame Magic, a self-styled fortune-teller, get everyone on the right track; Dolly, who discovers more about her perfect mother than she ever wanted to know; and Molly, who learns the cure for sleeplessness from her pen pal from Chicago.
