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.

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 !

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Quentins (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.

If you don't mind going through a dozy overstory, dive into this book so you can read and enjoy the nuggets. If you want to read an engrossing novel from beginning to end, skip this one.

How can your work be more rewarding to those you serve . . . and your own soul?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very good!, 22. November 2002
Von Ein Kunde
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Quentins (Gebundene Ausgabe)
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
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Quentins. (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, 11. Dezember 2009
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Quentins (Taschenbuch)
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. Die Autorin beschreibt das Leben von Geschäftsleuten und Filmemachern wie es sich Lieschen Müller vorstellt. Manche der in die Handlung eingebauten Kurzgeschichten haben gute Ansätze, versinken dann aber auch in Unglaubwürdigkeit und Oberflächlichkeit und der Schluß des Buches ist schlichtweg lächerlich. Wer "Echos vergangener Tage"gelesen hat, hält sicher nicht für möglich, dass diese Autorin so absinken konnte.
