I am a big Maeve Binchey fan and have read or listened to almost all of her books. Unfortunately, this one is of such poor audio quality that it was impossible to enjoy. Even with best quality speakers turned up and anything else I tried, I had to give up. Very disappointing!
I thoroughly enjoyed the stories in this book, and loved the reader. But the sound was quite muffled and hard to hear sometimes - like she was reading in a box.
Say something about yourself!
It is good to keep in mind that this is a collection of short stories. I kept feeling like I had to remember the characters' names in case the author tied the stories back in to one another. But they really are just independent stories and are all full of her rich characters. Some of them leave you hanging wishing for a more definite conclusion, but they were all delightful. If you liked Tara Road you will enjoy this book.
Sounded like they called the narration into a radio station. First time I've ever heard something like this on Audible. Are you sure this wasn't originally recorded for Librivox? I always enjoy Maeve Binchy, and the narrator was fine, but the sound quality was not.
She is a fabulous author. Only drawback is this is a series of stories that have you wishing for more.
