    With millions of copies of his New York Times best-selling No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency mysteries in print across the globe, Alexander McCall Smith is one of the most popular novelists and humorists in the world. Starring the brilliant but bumbling Professor Doctor Moritz-Maria von Igelfeld, The Finer Points of Sausage Dogs is a wonderfully entertaining showcase for Smith's award-winning wit.

    Story
    What would have made The Finer Points of Sausage Dogs better?

    Not sure anything could have made it better given the premise of accidentally amputating 3 legs from a little dog.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    No idea but I will never again assume I will like any book from a favorite author.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None. I didn't finish it.


    What character would you cut from The Finer Points of Sausage Dogs?

    All but the dog.


    Any additional comments?

    Who finds amputating 2 of a little dog's legs by mistake funny? I could not get into this story beyond that part. Even before that, the professor going along with the mistaken identity is just stupid.

    I love much of McCall's work. Have read all the Ladies Detective series as well as the Philosopher's series but what the heck is going on with this?

    I am so disappointed that I wasted an entire credit on this book.
