Customer Reviews

I really enjoyed this collection of short stories.
Mary G. Longorio
I chose this book only because it was written by Maeve Binchy and it was one that I had never read.
Helen Gilmartin
It was too many short stories with no real endings, it left you up in the air a bit, wanting more.

This is a great book of short stories. If you like Maeve Binchy's short stories you will have a wonderful time. But be warned, this book has been published in the United States as "London Transports." If you've read one, you've read the other

I really enjoyed this collection of short stories. Often I would stop reading and think to myself, "Why is this so familiar?". This book was actually published in the US under the title London Transport....and I had read it! In this collection Maeve Binchy looks into the lives of the many people who come and go on London's underground every day. This book offers up a wonderful cross section of society and engaging characters. Binchey is at her best describing people and their frailities. There are no clear cut heros or villians, rather the people are infused with a humanity and humor that carry you along. If you're a Binchy fan this is a must add to your colection (unless you already have London Transport). A treat to read and to reread.

Just thought there may have been a bit more to it. I was disappointed that the endings of each title were not concluded. Maybe I'm just spoilt through the authors other novels and wanted the stories to have an actual ending.

Still, the warmth was there.

I chose this book only because it was written by Maeve Binchy and it was one that I had never read. I didn't want to put it down as I felt it would close a chapter of my own life, one in which I have so enjoyed all of her books all for the same reason. Her style is so natural and she makes every character come alive. She is a true storyteller and as I read the book I felt as though I was having a cup of tea with her as she told me all her stories sitting at the kitchen table. Maeve will be so missed by thousands of people like me who cherished every word she wrote.

I really enjoy Maeve Binchy books, but I think I like her novels better. She has a very simple writing style, that is easy to understand and unpretentious. I feel that I am there, either as a participant or an onlooker. Most of her books do have flawed characters trying to get by with whatever situation they find themselves in, so they tend to be somewhat sad or depressing. This set of short stories seemed to be more that way than her novels. It was enjoyable, and I did finish it, but if you've never read Maeve Binchy, start with a novel. My favorite is Evening Class.

While I have enjoyed Maeve Binchy's books, must confess that I am not keen on short stories and should have taken more time to check out the title info. If I have time to sit and read, prefer to have a story that I can get into and get to know the characters a bit more. However, the short stories did have some interesting perspectives on people in general and made for very light holiday reading.
