Summary É eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ✓ Maeve Binchy Echoes Author Maeve Binchy Free read Ý eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Winds this drama of ambition betrayal and love will reach its turbulent conclusion'A master storyteller' MARIAN KEYES'I have returned to read Maeve Binchy time and time again' LORRAINE KELLY'Compulsive reading Binchy has the true story teller's knack' OBSERV. You know this really does read like Circle of Friends to me This one feels a bit off to me since it seems a step back for Binchy Most of the later works she published were tied together in some way This one is a true standalone and I have read it many times over the years and always hit a point of dissatisfaction with the story I think it s because the two main characters Clare and David hit a point when you just don t like either of them and then you just feel badly for Clare You do wonder what would have become of Clare and David if they were not together in a time and place 1950s60s which meant that you were stuck with each other even when you know that the odds things were going to work out were slimEchoes follows Clare O Brien and David Power who live in the seaside town of Castlebay in the 1950s Clare is a daughter of a shopkeeper David is the son of a doctor The two of them don t make a lot of sense together However Binchy starts the first part of this really long book it s over 700 pages showing how smart Clare is and how she s not destined to just go off and be married The local schoolteacher Angela sorry can t recall her last name sees Clare s potential and pushes her through her studies Clare has dreams of going to Dublin University but needs to do well in order to be able to obtain a scholarship We get to see Clare pushing away any thoughts of boys or anything that is going to keep her from her goal David we get to see is pretty easy to like through the first part of the story He seems like an affable young man and then you see him turning to follow in his father s footsteps to study medicine The book also shows us different people living in Castlebay like Gerry Doyle who we find has an odd obsession with Clare Clare s own mother Molly is hesitant about her daughter getting above herself and the two find themselves at odds throughout this book I have to say that I didn t really like David much towards the end of the book I wonder at times if this is what would have become of Benny and Jack if they had gotten back together see Circle of Friends The writing is typical Binchy You get a lot of insight into what Ireland was like back in the 50s and 60s and how hard it was for a girl like Clare to try to do anything else than what she was supposed to do according to society The ending though I think just left too much unsaid I think we readers can guess what comes next for David and Clare However I rather have it spelled out for me This is probably one of the few Binchy books I have finished that I felt aggravated by when I finished it

Summary É eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ✓ Maeve Binchy Echoes Author Maeve Binchy Free read Ý eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB 'A powerful story of love and jealousy' SUNDAY TELEGRAPHAMBITION BETRAYAL LOVEGrowing up in a uiet seaside town Clare O'Brien and David Power shout their hearts' desires into the echo cave praying their destinies will carry them far away from CastlebayYears. In Echoes Binchy proves that she truly is a master storyteller but blistering sentimentality and her penchant for verbosity turn some sections of the novel into a test of staminaThe story revolves around Clare O Brien and David Power the offspring of two vastly different families in the seaside town of Castlebay in the 1950s The O Briens run the local shop they re working class and Clare is only able to further her education by being gifted and winning scholarships The Powers are to the manor born David is off at boarding school for the early parts of the novel but eventually follows in his father s footsteps by studying medicine You can already guess where this is going yes this is Maeve Binchy s Romeo and Juliet Of course the plot involving Clare and David is actually only one storyline in this vast 737 page novel which spans the entirety of the 50s and the early 60s in Castlebay Binchy is at her absolute best when she is juggling several plots Where many authors struggle to tie everything together Binchy has an almost Dickensian talent of making everything connect and tie up naturally However where in other novels Binchy is fully able to fill her usual 700 page count with ease in Echoes it seems that for every page of plot there was an accompanying page of filler It also does not help that I found this novel to be uncharacteristically sentimental for Binchy She always writes stories of love and marriage but she usually balances that out with some genuinely moving and sometimes shocking content Who can forget the abortion in Light A Penny Candle for example Binchy teases us in the prologue of Echoes by telling us about the body of a dead man floating in the sea off the cliffs of Castlebay but she does not return to this ghastly scene until the very end of the novel 700 pages later Meanwhile you ve got to deal with the just about bareable Clare and the posh daddy s boy David I feel that I ve talked about the length of this novel uite a lot in this review but honestly that is my biggest criticism There is absolutely no need for this book to be as long as it is Binchy writes big books but this isn t a big story I often found myself getting bored and realising that I had 400 or pages left It is unfortunate Echoes is a vast and well written novel There are many characters in here that would be considered classic Binchy and it is often very funny However tweeness and boredom set in after the first couple hundred pages and never really leave Overall it s a fine novel that displays Binchy s wit but the editor should hang their head in shame
