    One thought on “The Homecoming and Other Stories: A BBC Audio Exclusive”

    1. Fantastisk bog med skønne noveller, som ikke er særligt lange, men indeholder så meget dybde at det er ikke til at fatte at det kun er noveller :D

    2. I accidentally re-listened to the audiobook last night on my way to and from book club. Still love her stories, and enough time had passed that although I remembered the stories, I could still enjoy them.

    3. I have wanted to read more short stories and to try audiobooks, and found The Homecoming and Other Stories on Overdrive via my local library system. I'm not enthused by Binchy's novels, yet I quite enjoyed this short story collection and the different narrators. The time spent with them slipped by, and I found the arc of the stories quite skillfully completed, and each is memorable.I have found short stories to be an ideal introduction to audiobooks, as the genre seems especially suited to the a [...]

    4. Grabbed this off the shelf at the library in a hurry and got home to discover it was a SINGLE CD. Four stories, possibly written for a publication like WOMAN'S WORLD. (I had a friend who once had a similarly light-weight story published there.)Not memorable, but OK to fall asleep to.

    5. This is my 2nd audiobook attempt ever. I enjoyed all 4 short stories and liked that each one had a separate narrator.

    6. I have loved all of Maeve Binchy's books. They are not always easy to read, but have a sense of reflecting on real life situations. Thus, I was thrilled to find Homecoming. I listened to it while I worked out and then it ended. I had to a little research to realize that it was only about an hour. The stories were very well written and I enjoyed them, but I would have liked a better ending that just the abrupt stopping of the download.

    7. I find Maeve Binchy's books to be great 'comfort' reads. This is an anthology of 4 short stories, all of them concerned with the characters we have met in her novels. It is rather nice to have small bites rather than a long novel but I found these stories a bit simplistic and not as satisfying as her longer works.

    8. Four subtle and heartwarming stories from a beloved author. Each of the stories is read by a different narrator, including Kate Binchy, who narrated the audio version of many of Maeve's novels. My favorite story is Telling Stories, in which a prospective bride has to manage the fears of her groom the night before they are to be wed.

    9. I listened to this collection of 4 short stories, and was underwhelmed. It mademe want to read the Scarlet Feather all over again; it's my favorite.

    10. Very quick listen to of sweet, typical Maeve Binchy stories. There were four very short stories with the whole book being finished in about an hour.
