Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynne | 2/18/2014

    " It took a little while to get into this book; however when I got to know all the characters, I found the book a delightful selection. It was originally written as a serial novel for a daily newspaper. The author says that the discipline is interesting because you can't go back and edit earlier segments! I plan to read the second book, Espresso Tales, which also uses this format. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bethany | 2/15/2014

    " I like his No. 1 ladies detective agency novels, but this book was almost pointless. The characters were all pretty shallow, and there were quite a few loose threads at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 2/1/2014

    " slow start for me, but good enough to read the next book... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chiara | 1/29/2014

    " A little predictable but still funny. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 1/18/2014

    " Like other books by McCall Smith, the writing of this little charmer is often witty, sometimes humorous, and usually understated. The appeal here is the unique format: each chapter was originally published in serial form in a newspaper. Although it's quite well done, and I enjoyed the characters, the plot never really thickens. It was easy to put down. McCall Smith is one of those authors that is like eating soup--one enjoys the pleasant flavors, but rarely needs to chew. And it's a single course without ever getting to the meat or dessert. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shelley | 1/14/2014

    " a light holiday read...preferred the 2nd in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie Gingerich | 1/5/2014

    " I read the Number 1 Lady's Detective Agency series so I knew this would be good. Each chapter was originally a daily installment in a newspaper in Scotland. So it is busy-reader friendly and each chapter leaves you wanting to know what happens next in the lives of these intriguing characters. I highly recommend the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J | 1/1/2014

    " I love Alexander McCall Smith - I loved the #1 Ladies Detective Agency books and so I picked this up. All of his books are easy reads that generally leave you with that warm, fuzzy feeling, but the language is always enchanting. This particular book leaves a lot of loose ends, but as none of the story lines were gripping, the reader isn't really left feeling any iniquity...the book is just about people and Edinburgh - you don't really need to know what happens. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine | 12/30/2013

    " Whit and whimsey in a new little world. Go there! "

    " Gosh. I just love reading Scotland Street. :D "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 11/4/2013

    " Very entertaining, can't wait to read the rest of this series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bcoghill Coghill | 11/3/2013

    " Love Smith's gentle style. He loves even the least of his characters. Kind of like God. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacob | 10/23/2013

    " Alexander McCall Smith begins another delightful series with 44 Scotland Street. The quirky, interesting characters and the simple day-to-day stories make this book (and its sequels) a fun, quick read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jan | 10/2/2013

    " I may like this series better than the #1 Ladies Detective Agency. The characters are interesting, especially Bertie! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey | 9/25/2013

    " Fun little read that made me totally miss Scotland. Took a few chapters to get into the typical British humor, but really kept my attention after that. Glad there are more books in the same series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brigid Mcdonough | 9/3/2013

    " This was very thin gruel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nathan Collier | 7/25/2013

    " Seinfeld in Edinburgh, Scotland, not that there's anything wrong with that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 4/30/2012

    " Alexander McCall Smithis absolutely delightful. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lhoulette | 4/15/2012

    " too slow moving and rather juvenile "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauraileen | 4/3/2012

    " A collection of stories about the very interesting people that live in an apartment building in Edinburgh, Scotland. I loved the first book so much that I have read all of the books in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theresa Gassler | 4/1/2012

    " On to Espresso Tales!!! Love this author. He always manages to take one away to a different location around the world whether it be Africa or Scotland. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan Gist | 1/4/2012

    " I love all AMS's books. They take me to a feel good place about life and make me smile. I dream of visiting Edinburgh one day! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn | 11/16/2011

    " A fun read, not for everyone though. Very interesting and likable characters. It's chapters were originally written for daily publication in Scotland, so each chapter has a little golden nugget that carries you to the next. I thought it was a fun approach to regular people and their lives. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fiona | 8/30/2011

    " Very light, very sweet, very readable, very Edinburgh. Fluffy and lovely - enough to make me want to read the follow-up "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily Wallace | 5/16/2011

    " This was an ok book. I guess I just need more excitement in a book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Martha Johnson | 12/8/2010

    " This is the series that I love. I think it is mostly because I love the ensemble cast and each is such a complete picture of someone human and eccentric and interesting. Bertie! We love him, particularly. The scraps and misunderstandings and rigidities are all too possible and too hilarious. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Booksdingle | 10/27/2010

    " not sure if I am missing the point as I know this authors books are very popular but I gave up mid way as I just didn't find it that funny or entralling - felt I may enjoy it if I was 63 rather than 36 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 8/5/2010

    " I enjoyed this so much more than I thought I would. I particularly love the Ian Rankin story line! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 5/29/2010

    " Vaguely interesting story. It felt a little bit disjointed and a little bit like nothing was happening. "
