Binchy gathers steam

by Ellyb on Feb 2, 2009

I think perhaps I have been reading Binchy's work in the wrong order; I started with her critically admired works, "Scarlet Feather," and "Circle of Friends," then I decided to investigate her earlier work, only to feel mildy disappointed. "Silver Wedding," published in 1989, offers glimmers of her talent that would later be on more advantageous display, but never quite pulls together into a cohesive story. This, like much of Binchy's work, is a story of small events that are big to those who are living them. It is a well-drawn portrait of a family but I wanted the deeper characterization that I have seen in her later works. I never quite got to know one member of the Doyle family before the book moved on to another character. That said, I finished this book in one day, as it moves very quickly as is by no means boring. It's just that Binchy has grown a lot as a storyteller since writing "Silver Wedding."
