3.0 von 5 Sternen Great story - shame about the rushed end 27. Mai 2000
As with other older Maeve Binchy novels, this is mostly a rites-of-passage novel set in a small Irish country town, Lough Glass. One day the young Kit's unhappy mother disappears, leaving a note which Kit destroys, not wanting to upset her father. Everyone assumes that she drowned in the lake, and life for Kit and the others goes on, but not without heartache as she grows up.
I was really engrossed in this book as it developed, looking forward to finding out the solutions to the various mysteries Binchy had set up. But as I got closer and closer to the end, with seemingly no real resolution to some of the issues, I found myself wondering how Binchy was going to tie up the book.
Then, in the last thirty pages, she rushed through several very major plot developments, reintroduced some characters and dealt with some serious emotional issues... in a very rushed and unsatisfactory manner. The pace had been leisurely throughout the rest of the book, and as such this really looked to me as if Binchy had suddenly realised that she was over her word limit and needed to tie up all the loose ends as briefly as possible. It didn't work, and really spoilt for me what could have been a wonderful book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen You'll never put her down! 5. Dezember 1997
Von Ein Kunde
If you have never read a novel by Maeve Binchy, please make it your next priority. She is the most amazing author I have ever read, and believe me, I've read plenty! She completely wraps you up with her vivid descriptions of characters and the setting. By the time I put one of her novels down, which is after I've finished it, I feel as though I know each individual character as if I were their best friend, and have shared all their pain and happiness.
I am now on my fifth Binchy novel, and the best I have yet to read is this one. Not only did it, and all of her other novels I have read, make me laugh, I also shed tears of both happiness and sorrow. She has inspired me to love Ireland and I have decided to have my honeymoon there. I just can't put her down. Even while my brother and his wife, whom I rarely see, were visiting, bringing with them the news that I would become an aunt, I still found it necessary to escape to my room and finish this novel. I can't wait to finish the Binchy I'm reading and begin the next one!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Compelling characters but believable? 6. Oktober 1996
Von Ein Kunde
The Glass Lake is about the eighth book I've read by the Irish author, Maeve Binchy. This novel, like many others, including _Circle of Friends_, is set in a small Irish village with parts set in London and Dublin. Also like _Circle of Friends_, _The Glass Lake_ has a very compelling central character in Kit McMahon. There are several problems with this book however, that I didn't find in _Circle of Friends.
Another central characer is Helen McMahon, AKA Lena Gray, Kit's mother. Their relationship and the events strain reality. Helen runs away from her family to be with her one true love, Louis Gray. Kit finds a letter for her father but burns it, thinking it is a suicide note. Her reasonbeing her mother could never have a Catholic burial if the village thought she committed suicide. The village does find a water-logged corpse so the village and her family mourn her death. Meanwhile Helen/Lena is setting up house with Louis in London. When she finds out her family thinks she is dead, she allows them to continue thinking this. She begins a correspondence with Kit as a "supposed" friend of Kit's mother.
I cannot buy the idea of a mother leaving her two children, especially the way Helen's loving nature is emphasized in the book.
There are a few love subplots in the novel but for the most part there is an awful lot of padding. Of 757 pages, about 500 is repetition. I have to admit though, the book did hold my interest. I never once considered stopping reading it. Although not very believable, I did enjoy it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the all-time best! 15. Dezember 1997
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I fell in love with this book the very first time that I read it and was so enchanted by it's story and characters that I have re-read it AT LEAST 8 times. This is the kind of novel that pulls the reader in...once you start reading you are almost instantly transported to the world of Lough Glass and you start forgetting that the characters in this book are not real people. I've had to buy another copy of this book because I wore out my first one! All I can say is THANK YOU Maeve Binchy for this spellbinding story and the warmth and love that radiates from every page.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great read 11. Mai 2000
Von J. Green
No one weaves characters like Maeve Binchy. This book hooked me from page 1 and I didn't want to put it down. That's the only problem with Binchy books... you want to read them in one sitting! This book is all about sacrifices and how decisions by one person impacts all the people around them. It's a great book about relationships between family members. Her books are always colorful, the images wonderful and the characters memorable.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book is incredible! 28. April 2000
You HAVE to read this was absolutely fantastic! Definitely one of her best. It usually takes me a few pages to get into a book, but with The Glass Lake I was drawn in at the first page and stayed that way throughout the whole book. Maeve Binchy is simply amazing. She has yet to disappoint me.
