5.0 out of 5 stars This book will appeal mainly to women.
Whenever I pick up a Maeve Binchy story, I feel I am visiting an old friend. Although The Return Journey is no exception, it is different from her other books as it contains ten short stories. These 10 little nuggets are enjoyable in an easy reading sort of way. Each story revolves around a trip and lessons people learn about others and themselves when travelling. It...

3.0 out of 5 stars Some Stories repeated from a previous book
I am a huge Maeve Binchy fan I have ALL her books, which I have thoroughly enjoyed. This one is 10 shorts stories five of which have been published in a previous book, so for me it was very disappointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Return Journey, 12 Jan 2011
This review is from: The Return Journey (Paperback)
A good easy read - being just short stories is ideal to read whilst
you are travelling or having lunch etc. Most enjoyable.

Took this book on holiday, great for the odd 5 minute read in between doing other things, finished it on holiday and left it in our log cabin for the next people to read.....................If you want stories with plots, this is not for you........

5.0 out of 5 stars Different, but good, 26 Aug 2010
This review is from: The Return Journey (Paperback)
Don't normally like short stories, but these were really good. Heartwarming and bittersweet with some great characters. Binchy is a great writer and this book is excellent. A lovely summer read!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Return Journey, 30 Jun 2010
This review is from: The Return Journey (Paperback)
Not my cup of tea although I love her books normally. Very short stories, frustrating to read as I like toget into the Charaters and see the story through. OK to dip in and out of if you are travelling and cannot concentrate

This review is from: The Return Journey (Hardcover)
Thoroughly enjoyable, as with her previous short stories they leave you wanting more. Great as a quick read before bed or if you only have 10 minutes to spare.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money !, 4 Sep 2010
This review is from: The Return Journey (Paperback)
I am a big Maeve Binchy fan & have all her books. However, I really do think this was a waste of money. It's just a book of short stories which quite honestly, are all of much the same type AND many of which have been published before! Is Maeve running out of ideas ? Really couldn't/wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 27 Sep 2010
This review is from: The Return Journey (Paperback)
Disappointed in this one. Various mini stories within one book, which do not have any kind of link or cross over with each other. Extremely random reading! Finished abruptly, and was left somewhat confused as to the point of this. Rarely disappointed in a book, but very much so in this case. Don't waste your money!!!!

Great set of short stories. Typical of Maeve Binchy, well told and draw you in with often a twist at the end. Really enjoyed them all.
