I'm so sad that this is the last we will be graced with from Maeve Binchy. My mother in law turned me on to her years ago. Tara Road was the first book I read of hers. Maeve was a beautiful story teller. During an extremely busy/hectic time at my work, to be able to climb in the car and be entertained by this book was a real treat. It's one of those books that I'm really missing now that its done.
I would listen to it again as it is her last book and Rosalynd had a great voice!
I loved all the characters especially Ms Star!
Her voice and expression help you relate to the characters
Yes, it discusses choices in life and how your life is impacted
When they saved the boy from jumping off the cliff
Loved the Irish acents
The girlfreind of the banker
Maeve Binchy does not disappoint with this last It is a gem.
More of all of my favorite characters.
I could not help but cry at the end knowing this was Binchy's last book. She will be missed.
Absolutely loved this book!
A Week in Winter ranks about midway plus in the audiobooks I have listened to thus far.
The most memorable moment for me was ehn all the guests had arrived. How exciting to finally have all the characters in place to watch how they would interact.
Roslyn landor's performance was steady so that I never once fell asleep listening to her voice. She kept my attention focosed on the characters and the story as it unfolded.
And the next visitor will be ...
At first I wanted all the characters to have arrived at the beginning of the book, but then realized that they come one by one to a bed and breakfast and so this was a clever way to introduce each one before bringing them all together. Fascinating plot!
wonderful story line weaving together the lives of several people in an interesting way
Only problem is that voice of reader is sometimes difficult to understand, just a little "too" Irish for my taste.
Saddened by the passing of the author. She managed to change and grow with times. While she has 'old fashioned" story telling skills, her characters, settings and events are very much up to date.
Very standard for Maeve Binchy. A lot like the "The Evening Classes" there is one event in the novel and there is background story on how each person got there.
Like hanging out with old friends. I love Maeve Binchy. She writes stories that make me feel good.
No, I would never read a book twice.
I love the numerous characters and their story lines.
I am not sure.
I would not make this book a movie.
Not at this time
A good all around book.
We'll read, you could feel like you were there.
A very good book, well read, enjoyable to listen to.
