44 Scotland Street – Alexander McCall Smith

44 Scotland Street is the first novel in a series where the chapters are originally published daily in The Scotsman, and then published as a serial novel. I’d originally started the series a few years ago, but couldn’t remember how far I got so I decided to start again from the beginning.

I’d forgotten how fun the series is! It follows the stories of occupants in apartments at 44 Scotland Street in Edinburgh, from the highly intelligent 5 year old Bertie and his overbearing mother Irene, to Angus Lordie and his dog Cyril with a gold tooth. It is light-hearted, funny and perfect escapism, and ideal for reading on a commute as the chapters are so short. I’m looking forward to starting Espresso Tales soon!
