McCall Smith is currently writing two novels in daily instalments in British newspapers. This is the third part of the one set in Corduroy Mansions, London. The chapters narrate the lives of several of its inhabitants.
You won't like this if you are looking for lots of suspense in a novel. It's more like being part of people's life for a while. Pretty day-to-day things are happening to them, they are falling in and out of love, get or lose jobs, sometimes rather absurd events come their way.
If you like Alexander McCall Smith, you will like this audio book. Fortunately, it's unabridged and therefore maintains all its fine humor. The reader does a convincing job communicating this humor and the empathy towards the characters that make this unconventional novel so loveable.
I only wish audible would publish unabridged versions of 44 Scotland Street, McCall's other daily novel, set in Edinburgh.
Well and clearly read, not too fast.
I listened to this because I want to improve my Italian listening comprehension (I'm an advanced learner, B1 or B2 in European framework, equivalent to about 3 years of college Italian).
It was fun to listen to and I'm now downloading more of these tales.
