Most bizarre ending I have ever read
on 6 September 2015
I've never read a Maeve Binchy book before and doubt I will again. This is a book with several stories - I couldn't call them plot lines - where ultimately the people featured in each story end up at the same hotel at the same time. The stories built up pictures of each character but then just left them dangling in the air. The ending was the most contrived I have ever read. It's as though the author got so bored with writing the book that she came up with this ridiculous ending just so she could type "The End". A terribly lazy way of trying to tell the reader what the future held for each character. Just ridiculous!
