    The story revolves around the comings and goings at No. 44 Scotland Street, a fictitious building in a real street in Edinburgh. Immediately recognisable are the Edinburgh chartered surveyor, stalwart of the Conservative Association, who dreams of membership of Scotland's most exclusive golf club. We have the pushy Stockbridge mother, and her prodigiously talented five-year-old son, who is making good progress with the saxophone and with his Italian.

    Story
    What would have made 44 Scotland Street better?

    getting to the point quicker - it rambled on and on about nothing of importance


    What could Alexander McCall Smith have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    cut out at least 50 chapters. Created characters that had at least some redeeming qualities - they were all vapid, boring , self obsessed and insipid.


    Which character – as performed by Hilary Neville – was your favorite?

    she did a great job considering how little she had to work with


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    not really


    Any additional comments?

    completely mis represented in the reviews. Did these people actually listen to this drivel??
