    " I'm deeply sorry, Alexander. You know I love you, but this time, in this book, nothing happens (or almost): you're such a good writer, but sometimes... the story matters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 2/8/2014

    " some characters i like better than others... "

    " I enjoy finding out what is happening with the characters "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alex | 1/26/2014

    " Interesting format- like a soap opera or sitcom. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dianna | 1/26/2014

    " A delightful book with a rich variety of interesting characters - I can't wait to read the next one. I enjoyed this more than his detective series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 1/25/2014

    " I love his characters. Hate to finish the book and tell the characters goodbye. 3rd book in the series. Just love his gentle satire, and tongue in cheek writing. Chuckling as I read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca | 1/25/2014

    " It was indeed okay. Not thrilling or exciting or even particularly interesting, except as a study for how to screw up a person's mind starting at the age of 6. But okay. Question for AMS: do all Scots eat only Italian food? "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lisa | 1/23/2014

    " I didn't very much care for this book...I doubt if I would recommend it to anyone...and what IS with the authors obcession with "crushed strawberry corduroys"??? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison | 1/19/2014

    " As enjoyable and entertaining as ever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirsten | 1/6/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brittany | 1/5/2014

    " It begins to be difficult to write reviews about these books, as they're all so similar. That's what's charming about them, though. So much in my life is dramatic, that sometimes a simple, calming, straightforward story (with excellent characters) is exactly what I need. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie Q | 12/28/2013

    " McCall Smith has such a wonderful style. To put humor into such simple everyday lives is captivating and a joy. I look forward to the next installment of Scotland Street. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Claud | 12/20/2013

    " Another enjoyable read in the series, although I didn't enjoy it quite so much. Having said that Bertie's Paris jaunt and the delving into the mind of Cyril was entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shilpa | 4/3/2013

    " These "44 Scotland Street" books really do read like episodes of "Seinfeld" (a show ultimately about nothing)! There is the sense of the ridiculous portrayed often but done in a sweet, touching manner. I'm really enjoying reading these books. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laura | 2/9/2013

    " many human stories happening simultaneously in one row house street in endinburgh. family stress, pining for love, heartbreak and betrayal all in the lives of 6 characters. i enjoyed this book, but wouldn't highly recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 DaNae | 5/14/2012

    " If Jane Austen lived in Edinburgh in the 21st century, she would write about these people, maybe not the same stories but her pen would enjoy exposing this eclectic group. "

    " I love the books in this series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sangeeta | 1/31/2012

    " There's something quiet and reassuring about the 44 Scotland Street series, and this one's no exception. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kit | 12/24/2011

    " Probably not the best idea to start with the 3rd book in the series, but that's what I found while traveling. Lots of fun characters. Just a pleasant, calm read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Libby | 8/16/2011

    " Liked this SOO much better than the first in the series (44 Scotland Street)--most of the characters, with the exception of Irene, grew on me, and having just been to Edinburgh last summer, the setting was what really made the book. "

    " I just can't say enough good things about Alexander McCall Smith's books. His sense of people is so gentle, lightly humorous without ridiculing the inner needs and emotional desires each person has. Reading one of his books always makes me happy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Louise | 5/23/2011

    " I enjoyed the first three in the series. This maybe because I know British society quite well. The Scots are their own people. McCall Smith has a humorous way of writing about them. "
