Would you consider the audio edition of Scarlet Feather to be better than the print version?
I've not read the hard copy of Scarlet Feather, however, I've listened to enough audio books and read enough hard copies to know sometimes you need to do both. I don't feel compelled to buy the book in this case. Kate Binchy does an exquisite job changing voices and scenes as if it were coming to life before your eyes. Maeve Binchy's smooth style of transition into the next scene makes you feel as though you were teleported from home to home & scene to scene. The emotions she evokes-fear, anger, joy, etc, makes you feel as if you are in each character's skin.
What other book might you compare Scarlet Feather to and why?
Tara Road is the only other book of her's that I've read. I'm on to Quentin's next.
Have you listened to any of Kate Binchy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
The world's that Maeve Binchy creates aren't perfect worlds, but they're worlds in which you want to escape. They offer you alternatives to situations within your own life.
A good yarn brilliantly narrated.
Starting to panic though, as will have heard them all soon x
A wonderful portrayal of Irish life in busy Dublin with a poignant yet humorous touch. I was listening every spare moment! Narrator is truly excellent!
Scarlet Feather is one of my favourite Bunchy novels, and this reading does it full justice. Simon and Maud in particular tug at the heart strings, and this is a great story about how life doesn’t turn out the way you think it will, but sometimes for the best anyway. This book has some profound things to say about the nature of family, but in typical Maeve fashion it’s done with a lightness of touch that draws you in and makes you laugh even as you’re raging against the world’s injustice. Highly recommend for anyone who wants a great story full of true Irish characters... Muttie Scarlet is a particular favourite of mine!
