Don't wast your time

If you like very slow repetitive novels , buy this. I thought I was never going to get to the end, but was glad when I did.

A real effort

This is my first of this author, and it will be my last. The pace was painfully slow and there wasnt' a single shred of any real plot. I won't waste my time with any others by McCall Smith. It got one star because the narration was good.
