I read my first Maeve Binchy book, The Lilac Bus and was disappointed. Each chapter is about one of the regulars on the bus. She has an amazing capacity to draw you in, to the extent I felt empathy for each character, then the chapter finished and they were gone, and I was confronted with a new character to get to know. There was the briefest of interaction between the characters focused on. I felt disappointed; wanted to carry on with a main character, not have them dumped like that. I wonder if all her books are like that, sort of short story format, or has she written any novels focusing on the same person right through?
