  • Does Anyone Here Read Alexander McCall Smith?

    First learned of his work from my mom, and more recently, from a travel writing colleague. Have yet to read him- is anyone here a fan?

    If you read him, I'd be interested in knowing what it is about the work you enjoy?

    well,

    they're showing ladies detective agency on tv on bbc ( 3rd episode after film last year ) & it is twee & patronising - certainly no part of africa i'm familiar with

    i certainly won't be reading his books...

      the books are brilliant i've read them all they are hilarious and MUCH better than the tv show but they are wearing a little thin now.

      his other books set in scotland are equally funny and there is a brilliant one about a german proffesors

      he is one of my favourite writers right now
      i deserve extra credit
