I purchased this as a present for someone who finds it hard to read a book due to sight problems. When the audio book arrived, I thought I would listen to it, to make sure my friend would like it.
I really enjoyed it,sometimes it's nice to be able to sit back and listen to someone else reading a book, I found it very relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable. My friend also loved it.

Will be buying more of these audio books, they are very good value, and really entertaining, and you can always listen more than once!

A nice relaxing read - typical Binchy. I feel I really know the characters by the end of each story. They link nicely to other books from her collection too. I particularly liked that.

I read a lot, have an MA in history, and yet MB is one of my favourite authors. There's just something about her that I can relate to - frustration, love, reality. This was the first audio MB I have purchased and it definitely won;t be the last.

product arrived on time and was pristine etc... The stories though are a little short and, well pointless. 4 short stories with no begginning middle or end, just a diatribe of events to fictional individuals. The only real question is Why?

If you don't have long at a time but don't want to leave it too long before getting to the end of the story then This is a good Audio CD to buy. They were all so different and that made it more interesting and enjoyable to listen to.
