Every day, millions of people travel on London’s Underground, yet everyday life is not nearly as mundane as we think. At Notting Hill, the secretary, harbouring her secrets travels to work; at Highbury and Islington, Adam has a sudden change of heart; at Holborn, a disastrous reunion is about to take place. With her characteristic mix of humour and biting realism, Maeve Binchy enters the lives of ordinary people.

I have always enjoyed Maeve Binchy's books and this one was no exception. I purchased this book in order to have a book of short stories to take on a little trip that we made recently. I have been delighted with this book. The stories are excellent, thought provoking and very memorable. I even discussed one of the stories with my son as we traveled home. He thought I was telling a true story about something that I had seen or encountered. All of the characters are great. They are, to me, real people that I might meet somebody. Maeve Binchy has such a wonderful imagination and such a gift for writing. After I read one of her short stories, I really want to know more about the chief characters and what happened to them. I want to know if the lady who shop lifted ever got caught. I want to know if the new girl in the apartment with the girl in the wheelchair ever figures out what is really happening. I also want to know about Rita and her television star boyfriend and her husband in prison. Maeve Binchy keeps me wondering about all of these interesting people. I want to go to Ireland and look all of them up and ask questions. She makes them seem so very real. Five stars for sure for Miss Maeve. She is a delight.

This is not the Maeve Binchy that I know and love I'm afraid! Although the writing is, as always, well constructed and easy to read, in every case, she seems to just be developing the story when it comes to an abrupt and, consequently, (for me at any rate) very unsatisfactory ending. I felt that some of the tales cried out for a slightly more conclusive ending, rather than every single one being left dangling up in the air, going nowhere and bearing no relation to anything that had gone before, other than it having a chapter heading of another stop on the Underground. I didn't really see any cohesion in this premise because the stories could have taken place anywhere! Give me her stories of Ireland and the wonderful eclectic mix of folk who live there any day.....this just did not work for me on any level.

I chose this book only because it was written by Maeve Binchy and it was one that I had never read. I didn't want to put it down as I felt it would close a chapter of my own life, one in which I have so enjoyed all of her books all for the same reason. Her style is so natural and she makes every character come alive. She is a true storyteller and as I read the book I felt as though I was having a cup of tea with her as she told me all her stories sitting at the kitchen table. Maeve will be so missed by thousands of people like me who cherished every word she wrote.

I've read every book this author has released so far. I enjoy them all. I like the one story books better than her short stories. I really like the way she has woven a lot of the characters from different novels together with new characters in her newest books. She will surely be missed by a lot of people. If you like Irish stories, you'll love Maeve Binchy.

Just thought there may have been a bit more to it. I was disappointed that the endings of each title were not concluded. Maybe I'm just spoilt through the authors other novels and wanted the stories to have an actual ending.

Still, the warmth was there.
Some of the sentences are clunky but the book has such enjoyable characterizations. I'm not english but i can imagine most of the types in the stories. Some of the stories are so mysterious i want them to keep going but that's how it is with short stories! I reread parts for relaxation from time to time.
