I am a fan of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series as well as The Sunday Philosophy Club books. I ordered this book from the library by mistake - thinking it was part of the Sunday Philosophy Club series - and was pleasantly surprised! The most interesting thing about this book for me was that McCall Smith wrote it as a serial - with one short chapter appearing in a newspaper everyday. He writes about the challenges of this style of writing in the book's introduction. The chapters have to be self-contained, give the impression that something else is to come, and yet maintain a sense of continuity of story. He does this brilliantly and it is a delight to savour each chapter (although it is very tempting to rush through it). The characters are very strong, and by the end of the book you find yourself thinking about them and wondering what is happening in their lives.

This book is a quick read yet a gentle, toughtful study of human nature. It's always interesting to read this author and the Scotland setting really works well for him. I enjoyed it much more then "The Sunday Philosopers' Book Club" and almost as much as "The Ladies No.1 Detective Agency". I've grown attached to the characters in "44 Scotland Street" and wish there was more coming. Enjoy!

I picked up the Book intrigued that it was a Writer of Scottish Background since the last Scottish Writer I had ever read was Muriel Spark's The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie. It was a hilarious and humourous Book about people living in an Apartment that in many ways evoked memories of Armistead Maupin's Tales Of The City that it has been compared to. I would love for Simone Lahbib to play Irene the well meaning but overbearing Mother of Bertie and I look forward to reading it's sequel when I have the time.

Alexander McCall Smith has done it again. His characters are the people you love to hate and the people you wish you could be. I raced through this book and wished for more. The characters are so human - the best, the worst, and all in between. The evocation of place is brilliant. A Scottish version of McCall Smith's No.1 Ladies Detective Agency. With every book by this author I learn new vocabulary and I'm introduced to and/or reminded of authors (Ian Rankin), poets (McDiarmid, Auden, etc.) artists (Peploe, Vettriano, etc.), politicians and current events. I highly recommend it to those who appreciate development of character and place and a hearty laugh, more than heavy action.
