Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Maeve Binchy delivers a timely and topical tale on the fickle nature of docu-soaps in Quentin's in an age where everyday people are becoming overnight celebrities via the medium of television,. Ella Brady is a documentary film-maker who wants to bring the tale of the eponymous Dublin restaurant to the screen. Quentin's has had its fair share of ups and downs over the years and has become the meeting point for a lot of characters, including some familiar faces from previous Binchy novels. As Ella makes more and more headway with her documentary, the secrets, betrayals and stories of love that emerge make her question whether or not she wants to bring the tale of Quentin's to the screen after all; especially as she is also forced to confront a devastating dilemma from her own past.

Regarded by many as the true queen of the romantic Irish drama, Binchy has once again produced another fine page-turner that will please her army of loyal fans and hopefully win her many more. She has a real eye for character and exploring the often painful choices people are forced to make in their everyday lives. This is a tale of normal people, ordinary folk and the heartaches that have made them who they are. Fans will welcome the return of some familiar Binchy characters and Ella is a strong, likeable heroine, a woman who, in exploring the lives of these people, is forced to consider some choices she has made in her own life. So make a reservation at Quentin's, sit back and relax--you'll be in very good company. --Jane Warren

5.0 von 5 Sternen lesen und leben 8. Januar 2003
Von A. Meyer
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
wie bereits die anderen bücher von maeve binchy, so entfaltet auch dieses buch nach wenigen seiten seinen unwiderstehlichen sog. leser von binchy`s büchern werden glücklich sein, altbekannte charaktere wie z.b. nora aus evening class oder cathy aus scarlet feather wiederzufinden, neue leser werden sicherlich dazu angeregt werden, deren geschichten nachzulesen. wie immer kreiert maeve binchy einen ganz eigenen kosmos aus persönlichen schicksalen, hoffnungen und wünschen und schafft es, einem das gefühl zu vermitteln, man sei den charakteren ganz nahe gekommen. schalten sie den fernseher aus, gehen sie nicht ans telefon- und lesen und leben sie !

3.0 von 5 Sternen Intimate Glimpses into Stressed Families 15. Juli 2004
Von Donald Mitchell TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch
If you have been reading Maeve Binchy's recent Dublin-based books, undoubtedly you remember power confrontations at the elegant restaurant, Quentins. Somehow, Brenda Brennan swoops in to save the day . . . and make everyone who has been harmed feel better. Naturally, there was bound to be a book that delves behind those scenes to tell us more about Brenda and her husband, Patrick, and how Quentins came to be the poshest choice in Dublin. Quentins is that book.

When the story touches on those who are dining or working in Quentins, the book has the magic of the scenes you have enjoyed in books like Tara Road and Scarlet Feather. When the book moves away from that core, the story and fun are vastly diluted.

The structure of the book is to have the story of Quentins, the Brennans and those involved with Quentins be wrapped by a story concerning a young woman, Ella Brady, who is victimized by the classic married cheater. Finding herself facing hard times, she takes on every source of income she can find . . . and becomes involved in a proposal to create a documentary of Quentins. That overstory then becomes the excuse to dive into Quentins.

While telling the story of Quentins to sell the documentary, Ms. Brady finds herself telling some of the best tales about Quentins. These appear as short stories that stand alone in the book. Each one is a classic Quentins scene that will delight you like those you have read before. If Ms. Binchy had either focused solely on Quentins or had solely provided such short stories, she would have had a brilliant book. Alas, she did not. Perhaps in a future book, she will provide us with such stunning entertainment in a book-length series of short stories.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very good! 22. November 2002
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Quentins is the name of the Restaurant where most of the stories told in this book start, come together or end. But Quentins ist just a story told on the side, the main story is about Ella. The begining of the book is a bit strange, as the writing is a bit clipped and not like Maeve usualy writes, she could have made a lot more of that. But then suddenly it changes and you find yourself in a realy good Maeve book. You wont be able to put it down.
There are a lot of old caracters in this book that have a part in it. I supose you can read it, if you don't know them, but it does help quite a lot, as there are so many characters in this book, that you might get a bit confused.
It will make lovely christmas holiday reading.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Schön...wie immer! 22. Juli 2005
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Es stimmt, irgendwo wiederholen sich die Charaktere und Lebensgeschichten in Maeve Binchys Büchern (die ich fast alle gelesen habe) und dennoch lese ich die Geschichten - egal ob Kurzgeschicht oder Roman- über die (meist) irirschen Menschen und ihre Wünsche, Träume und alltäglichen Sorgen immer wieder gerne. Maeve Binchys Bücher gehen ans Herz...weil man sich in vielen zwischenmenschlichen Situationen und Belangen einfach selber wiederfinden kann. Quentins ist ein Roman, den man an einem einzigen Tag "verschlingen" kann...

1.0 von 5 Sternen Leider nein
Die ersten Romane von Maeve Binchy waren brilliant, ab "Evening Class" fing sie an kitschig und oberflächlich zu werden und dieser Roman ist schlichtweg schlecht. Lesen Sie weiter...
