This selection of her work represents Binchy's eclectic interests, infectious sense of humor and wry take on social change...

Dieses Buch erschien erst nach dem Tod von Maeve Binchy, es sind von ihr geschriebene Artikel in der Irish Times, für die sie als Journalistin tätig war. Hier offenbart sich auch ihr besonderer Humor und das Beschreiben der verschiedensten menschlichen "Typen" und Gegebenheiten.

Maeve's times/ Maeve Binchy 5. Oktober 2013
Von JB - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Anyone who has enjoyed the writing of Maeve Binchy will surely want to read this collection of her newspaper articles. Her sense of humour in these short pieces is very obvious, as is her sense of the ridiculous in her fellow men and women. To me these pieces reveal the person behind the novels, it makes me wish I could have known her. A real treat, and a fitting tribute to a well-loved author.

Enjoyable 25. August 2014
Von Elizabeth G. Melillo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
"Maeve's Times" are a collection of witty reflections on day to day life - air travel, etiquette dilemmas, school outings, as an example - selected from Maeve's columns for the Irish Times. I found them enjoyable, because they contain truth, and situations we all recognise, with a wry edge.
This is not a biography of Maeve, but illustrates her outlook of realism combined with humour, which flavoured the characters she depicted in the best of her books. I believe that younger readers, in particular, who do not remember when just about every newspaper contained such columns, may find it boring. The entries are similar to what someone today might include in a blog. There is no special insight or wisdom, but the reflections on the largely banal, in a fashion that highlights the humour of the situation, and is all too true, I did find to be fun.
Those of us who well remember the 'regular columns which resemble today's blogs' know that, with the requirement that the author constantly turn out material, finding a topic must have been quite a task. The humour in Maeve's columns came from a sense that 'she has the courage to say what I think,' or 'her experience is similar to my own, but she managed to have a laugh despite the irritation or banality.'
The title and 'blurb' can be somewhat misleading, because they give the impression that they comprise a biography. Some of the reflections may seem dated to younger readers - those of us 'of a certain age' should enjoy them with some sense of nostalgia. I've read many of Maeve's books, and found that, at their best, they are warm and have a highly accurate depiction of human nature and relationships - where those I would not place in the 'best' category are trite and 'go nowhere.' This would also be true of the columns in this collection.
Some of the repetition, tolerable when one was reading columns over time, is very trying. The many occasions where she writes accounts of women having abortions, breaking up their marriages, or going on about contraceptives may have seemed timely in 1970s Ireland, but one dose is quite enough. There are other times when Maeve clearly is at her wit's end (pun intended) to try to develop a tale to tell today - and you may find yourself skipping over certain articles from sheer boredom. Weighed in the balance, there are enough witty stories to wile away some time, perhaps in a waiting room, but the boredom level on others is quite high - and Maeve's tales of female foolishness, some of which have no humour, possibly will be offensive to some today.
This is a nice 'train book' or 'good read' on a rainy day.
