Why put a big drawing of a cat in the cover if the cat barely appears in the book and when he does, he is in danger?! WHY?!(view spoiler)[And then another poor cat unrelated to the story also dies. WHAT THE FUCK?!! (hide spoiler)]So, again,Luckily for my windows, I wasn't indoors. So long and thanks for all the gifs.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>
Totally different for Maeve BinchyThis was a quick read and totally different for Maeve Binchy. A fun story about a stolen painting and an ex cop nun.
Interesting mystery but didn't like the gory bits as wouldn't read that type of fiction.
A cute, quick whodunnit. Set in Ireland, a famous Caravaggio painting goes missing from a small Abbey and two nuns go in search of it.
I got to 48% and the bit about the pansy bastard and I'm done.The trick of writing a pass around, group story seems to be in a desire to set up the plot more than screw the next person you're handing it to. In the first 10% especially there's many sudden deaths and knocks at the door ending chapters. As the story moves along it gets better, particularly once the nuns get on the road. I saw traces of Binchy or her style in the dressing room section of the story. Ultimately though the book suffers [...]
Calling all saints and sinners! This fast-paced tale written by seven authors—Binchy, Cunningham, Donnelly, Millar, Dhuibhne, O’Donnell, and Sheridan—begins in a convent where nuns and novices alike have taken a vow of silence. Readers be forewarned, you’ll need to muffle your irreverent laughter! Between crucifixes, guns, rosary beads, silencers, and Judas Iscariot type commitments—watch your back. Be wary of the prayerful penitent in the pew behind you who’s ready, willing, and abl [...]
The name Maeve Binchy drew me to this book as I've loved all her stories. It wasn't until I started it I realised that it was actually a book written by a group of writers; maybe that's why it comes across as being somewhat disjointed. At times it seems overly complex as if each writer is setting up the next with a "now get out of that!" scenario! However there are some great characters and some very funny scenes. For me it was a 3.5 read but I have given it four stars as, on the whole, the writ [...]
I enjoyed this book. It was a fun, quick read- perfect for summer! The formatting was interesting, by using one Author per chapter. This made the story slightly disjointed, but I enjoyed it regardless. It was fun trying to guess which Author wrote which chapter based on their writing style. I guess that's one mystery which shall remain unsolved, unlike the missing Caravaggio.
Like many examples of collaborative writing, Sister Caravaggio doesn't really work as a novel. Each author who wrote a chapter was trying to paint the next one into a corner and much mayhem ensued. I enjoyed the technical aspects of seeing how each author tried to make things work and so I had fun. Mystery enthusiasts would probably be disappointed.
I an a huge Maeve Binchy fan. This book is not just a Maeve Binchy book, but a collection of several, Irish writers. Part of the fun is trying to figure out who wrote what chapter. I am pretty sure I know which one Maeve wrote. I enjoyed this book. It was a good, fast moving, adventure. I was left with one question though. What's with the ring? A good read. Enjoy.
A 7 author bookI read this book because I love Maeve Binchy's whole body of work. After reading I discovered what an anomaly it is for 7 authors to be able to do this body of work. Worth the time spent reading.
Very interesting concept of 7 writers collectively writing a story about a Caravaggio painting being stolen from Doon Abbey, a convent in Ireland. The names of the Sisters - Sister Mary Magdalene and Sister Mercy Superior were too funny. Cute and very light reading.
It was great that Maeve gave direction to this book. Thanks for sharing one of the last books she was involved with.I'm sure it was very hard writing a book with so many authors involved. I will try to read some of the other author's work.
Exciting story with multiple twists and turns. Sometimes needed transitions from one chapter to the next. Had inferences that sometimes were hard to follow to few clues to the direction story was taking. I enjoyed reading it
Good readThis book was a good read, downloaded it because Maeve Binchy helped to wrote it. Well I enjoyed it anyway.
Great idea, poorly executed.
nice easy read and considering there are so many different authors it's amazing how seamless it all fit.
An okay read. Nothing ground breaking.
A surpriseThis is certainly a different direction for Maeve Binchy, but I enjoyed it a lot. Suspenseful, funny, very enjoyable. Thank you.
Can't quite make my mind up about this. It has as many murders as in an episode of Midsommer murders and as many red herrings as Murder she wrote. What more can I say!!!!!!!
Bit of a messHard to follow, lots of characters. Not terrible but not a book I would recommend. If you were stuck somewhere without anything to read, this would pass the time.
Disappointing. Parts were awkwardly written (and weirdly enthusiastic about how it would be to wear women's clothes). I only finished it by speedreading to see how the plot would wind up.
