This is my review of the book Love Over Scotland by Alexander McCall Smith
When I was reading this I asked Pauline, which characters do you like best, and interestingly though we did overlap on some others also appealed. This is what makes this series of books so clever, they appeal to lovers of different genres of writing equally.
One of the characters that we both agreed was a favourite, was Bertie. Maybe an alternative title of this should have been Bertie's adventures in Paris, or even his encounter with the police. The characters are so rich that though there is no beginning and end that does not matter. It is a humorous tapestry of life, that could just be real.
So having said all that – which bits appealed to me most. Matthew and the Glasgow gangsters – Aloysius O'Conner. Bertie-Pierre de-constructing Jean- Francois Francois with the principles of flight. The kidnapping of Cyril and his subsequent repatriation were I thought some of the best bits.
All in all this was a very enjoyable book, and I look forward to reading the next one. This was book 39 week 27 fiction 37 (11 on audio) non fiction 2
