Reading how people sort out their lives, a window into their thoughts, as they muse over their events is definitely an interesting read. Enjoyed how Bertie came to the rescue of Cyril, being as observant as he is, and how he is learning to cope with his Mother and establish a more active relationship with his Father. All the characters are a delight to read about.

If you liked the other books in the 44 Scotland Street series you will also like this one. I particularly enjoy these books in audio form because I like to hear the different Scottish accents and characters' voices (read beautifully by Robert Ian Mackenzie.) These books reveal people and their relationships, joys and sorrows, in everyday life. There is little excitement, per se, but a lovely wash of exposure to imaginary lives of a group of people in Edinburgh.
