Anyone who knows me knows that I am in love with the world that Binchy so easily creates So they may be surprised that I am only giving Echoes a 3 out of 5 While her setting cast of characters and storytelling abilities are as top notch as ever this book left me strangely unsatisfied My main issue seems to be one that is echoed forgive the pun by many of my fellow reviewers Mainly that the love story of Clare and David is not given enough time to develop in comparison with the rest of the bookI m all for falling in love fast but their love just didn t seem real to me for most of their relationship In my opinion David who was stifled by his overbearing parents was drawn to Clare because he knew his mother would disapprove My suspicions of this are given weight by how easily cheats on her with Caroline and how little regret he feelsClare did eventually prove to me that she loved David but only after she burned the pictures and was willing to forgive everything She certainly is an amazing character with rarely paralleled strength However all that being said even though I know what the final scene of the two leaving Gerry s funeral together was meant to portray I still can t shake the feeling that the only reason they were sticking it out is to prove to everyone that they weren t wrong I wasn t left with a feeling that love conuers all but that stubbornness conuers all While I love the realism I still am not as enthralled as I wanted to be
