The Right Attitude to Rain

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Alexander McCall Smith

Narrated By: Davina Porter

Publisher: Recorded Books

Duration: 8 hours 57 minutes


Edinburgh once again provides a colorful setting for the adventures of Isabel Dalhousie, the 40-ish editor of a philosophy journal who loves solving problems. But, like McCall Smith's previous heroine, Precious Ramotswe, she often embroils herself in problems that are none of her business, including some that are best left to the police. Charming and affable, she continually finds herself pulled into the complicated lives of those around her—especially those in need of assistance. Like the others in this series, Right Attitude to Rain offers both a cosy mystery and a fascinating moral dilemma.
Precious Ramotswe fans are sure to embrace Scotsman McCall Smith's plucky new protagonist, who leads a cast of delightfully quirky characters that includes Toby, a dapper bachelor with a dubious understanding of fidelity, and Grace, Dalhousie's morally upright housekeeper, who sizes up society's reprobates in two syllables or less.

    This is a gentle, sweet book, beautifully written. You have to be willing to just go with the flow, whenever Isabel's mind takes off into philosophical conundrums. I really like this series. The series started off with a gentle murder mystery, but I think the author finally decided that Isabel could stand on her own two feet without added excitement.

    I love these stories...especially when I take a break from murder and mystery. Beautifully written, great narration, just lovely!

    This is my third Sunday Philosophy Club series. I enjoy the daily ethical problems that Isobel ponders. Smith is a great writer and the reader is great; love the Scots accent.

    This book was very slow. The protagonist ruminated instead of pondering and analyzing the ethics of her situation. Too long not enough interactions among the cast.

    This is a poor book from a great writer. I could not make it past disc 3. It's missing Alexander McCall Smith's charm, wit and fun.
