    Story
    "A treat for Hugh Laurie fans"
    If you could sum up The Finer Points of Sausage Dogs in three words, what would they be?

    Acerbic. Witty. Amusing.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I'm sure anyone familiar with the absurdities of the life of an Academic will find this hilarious. McCall-Smith's invention of the von Igelfeld character is truly inspired; one of my favourites!


    What does Hugh Laurie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Hugh Laurie's outrageously silly German accent as von Igelfeld absolutely adds to the humour, he has great fun with the nuances.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended, McCall Smith fans won't be disappointed with these charming stories
