    Delightful!!!

    I got this for Christmas & could not put it down!! I read it non stop because I had to know what came next. I loved the return of the twins, Nora & the Feathers. My 5th Binchy novel. I just love this group of Binchy stories that weaves in all the characters from other stories. It's nice to know what happened to them all as well as meet the new ones, too. Ella Brady & Derry King. I can't wait for Binchy's next novel. Hopefully the story of the Kennedy's & I don't mean JFK!!

    A BIT OF A BROGUE MAKES THE LISTENING BETTER

    That quintessential Irish charmer Maeve Binchy weaves another heartwarming tale of friendship, family and love. Fans of the Scarlet Feather and Tara Road will be delighted with the return of this warmhearted author, and new readers will be enthralled by Binchy's storytelling skills. A voice performer with numerous audio books to her credit, Jennifer Wiltsie offers an accomplished reading on both abridged versions. Terry Donnelly, with stage credits stretching from New York to Dublin, gave a memorable performance of Tara Road and outdoes herself with the unabridged version of Quentins. On the rebound from an unhappy relationship with a married man, Ella Brady signs on to assist in the making of a documentary about Quentins, a landmark Dublin restaurant. Once a rather run-of-the-mill eatery, Quentins has flourished over the past several decades, and as it has changed so has the city. It is this flowering, this renewed vigor and polish that Ella hopes to capture in the film. To this end, Ella begins interviewing those who have dined at Quentins, noting their personal foibles, failures, and achievements. As she listens to the stories of others Ella looks inward and learns a great deal about herself. Quentins is pure Binchy. Her countless fans couldn't ask for more.

    Mrs Binchy is back to her best writing style: about people

    I am a loyal fan of Maeve Binchy's books. She has a great way of taking a town with all its people and tell you the stories of each person in that town. She did it again in this new book "Quintins". I love every bit of it. Although, I would love a little more romance developed between Ella and Derry King before the book ended just be cause I am a romantic at heart. But this book is great and pretty much back to what Maeve Binchy does best: Writting about people and their lives' stories.

    Definitely not one of her best

    I have read all of Binchy's books, and this is one of my least favorites. It's almost like a movie of the week sequel...lots of characters from older books but just a brush with them. The chapters focusing on Brendan, Patrick and Blouse are quite good, but I did not find the new heroine likeable and the resolution of the Irish-American character's hang-ups was too quick and neat to be believable.

    A Fast Moving Story....

    I found the story to be fast moving with many likable characters. If you haven't read other Maeve Binchy favorites such as Scarlet Feather you may not appreciate the short stories and misc. characters that are mentioned throughout. Overall an enjoyable story.

    A disappointment

    I love Maeve Binchey's books and eagerly await each one. But if you are looking for the Binchey of "Light a Penny Candle", you will not find her here. A wisp of a plot, padded with short stories, and some not terribly likable characters failed to draw me in, as I always am with Binchey's wonderful stories. I just didn't really care about the people in the book and for the first time I wasn't sorry to see the story come to an end, and I usually am with this author's books.

    Maeve Binchy Does It Again

    Again,Maeve Binchy has written a book that you don't want to put down. Quintens is full of characters and their lives connected with the restaurant and you become so involved with their stories that you don't want it to end.
