44 Scotland Street

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Alexander McCall Smith

Narrated By: Robert Ian Mackenzie

Publisher: Recorded Books

Date: June 2005

Duration: 11 hours 59 minutes


Author Alexander McCall Smith became a worldwide sensation with his No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency novels. His award-winning wit is fully on display in this charming work. Here, in delightfully authentic sketches, are all the archetypes of Edinburgh society. There is the surveyor who dreams of a membership in Muirfield golf club. There is the pushy Stockbridge mother. There is the intellectual lady who sees herself as part of a much larger world. These characters and more confront issues of trust, love, and loss.

    This is not what I was looking for in a mystery or a thriller. It is more a character study. I listen to this last week and already I can not tell what they were trying to solve. It is amusing in places. But very unbeleiveable.

    I found this book vaguely amusing, but certainly not something I would recommend to most people. There was a minimum of action and the characters all seemed to be lacking in brain power, especially the man who removes the paint from the oil painting. It was fun to get a feel for Scotland. Just don't expect a page turner that you can put down.

    I laughed out loud several times whilst reading this book. I love the way that McCall Smith creates each of his characters. I also want to visit Edinburgh now that I've read this and other of his Scottish books. LOVED IT!
