Maeve Binchy – Evening Class

This review is by guest reviewer/blogger Sharon.

Maeve Binchy –
Evening Class

The premise of this book seemed good – a lady recently returned from living in Italy teaching a class of 30 adult students the language and culture. And it was a good premise and a story line. The book was organized a bit differently in that it told each chapter was the story of someone different in the book with the first chapter belonging to the Senora and the rest being devoted to many of the students but not all 30 of them. The book then is summed up when the class all goes on a holiday with each other to Italy.

While I did enjoy the story of this book, I did have a bit of difficulty with each of the chapters as I kept getting confused as to who was who. Maybe I should not read books that have more than a dozen characters. The different stories that were told had characters that were common in each one, which helped with connecting the stories to each other.

Overall, a decent book and one that makes you dream of going to Italy. It’s a nice book to take with if you need something that will last you many hours and you do not want to take several books.
