Format: Paperback
All Maeve Binchey's books make riveting reading, and this one is no exception. My best friend has not yet read any of her work, so I have given her this book to whet her appetite for the rest. 'The Lilac Bus' will make you laugh and cry, as usual with Miss Binchey, and you will be very sorry when you have come to the end - again, as usual with Miss B. Try 'Evening Class' next, another gem.

I loved this book! I did think it was a tad short, but then I do like to know what happens next and next and next!

Your heart will definately go out to some of the characters as you discover why they are the way they are and how some of them have kept their secrets for years!

Certainly recomended as an introduction to Maeve Binchy, once you have read one, your hooked on them all!

It's ages since I read this and I must have lost my original copy but recently I picked it up again in a second hand shop and read it again cover to cover. It's amusing, sweet, funny and a good glimpse into rural village life in Ireland where eveybody knows everybody's business and there are secrets lurking behind every front door. The book is more short stories rather than one main story but all the characters are somehow linked by the fact that they all get the same lilac bus home every Friday from Dublin and return again on a Sunday. I'm holding onto this copy now as I don't want to lose it again. If you're a Binchy fan and you haven't yet read The Lilac Bus, you MUST read it!

Whilst I enjoyed reading The Lilac Bus, and thought it was a good book to read if you are reading Maeve Binchy for the first time, I did feel that this book could've been put into the short story category.

As a result of reading The Lilac Bus, I have ordered Light a Penny Candle and I am looking forward to reading it this summer. I am also hoping to read more of her books in the future.

This is a very good read, it contains the usual Binchy humour and is like all her books very witty. Well recommended.

This book centres around four main characters and the main thing they have in common is that they are all from the same small Irish village and they take the same bus home from Dublin every Friday evening.

All about characters who take a regular bus trip from Dublin to a small village every weekend. The book describes the people, their lives, relationships and the reasons they make the trip each week. Delightful linked short stories, full of Irish charm.

As soon as you begin to read, the personalities Maeve Binchy describes take on a life that the reader becomes part of. You want to learn more. You want them to succeed.
Once begun, you will not want to put the book down.
