Short vignettes continue the story of life at 44 Scotland Street, Edinburgh. Stories of precocious Bertie, vain Bruce and Pat, daughter of a psychiatrist, plus other unique neighbors kept me entertained.(9 audio-cassettes provided 15 hours listening during many flights on tour of Brazil)

This is the second 44 Scotland Street novel read beautifully by Robert Ian Mackenzie with all the different Scottish accents. This is a novel about little things - the ordinary lives of the characters who are so well drawn and engaging. A very pleasant listen.

The second book in the Alexander McCall Smith series following the residents of 44 Scotland Street in Edinburgh. Through a series of short vignettes, the reader gets to know the characters, their foibles, their hopes and fears. Some may be put off that the stories aren't tied up in a neat knot at the end. But readers of 44 Scotland Street will especially enjoy the tales.

In this follow-up to 44 Scotland Street, we meet again with 6-year-old Bertie, the child genius, as well as his mother and father who are beginning to disagree on the path their son should take. Self-centered Bruce is without a job and is now contemplating becoming a wine mercahnt. And Pat is embarking on a new life at Edinburgh University, much to her father's relief. It is a joy to catch up once more with these endearing characters.

Good book to read, makes you want to meet the people in the story and find out more when you are finished.
It is a good interesting series with likeable characters and I would recommend reading the books in order.

I liked it, but this was the one where I wasn't certain I was going to keep reading all the books. I've since decided I'm going to!
