The World According to Bertie

The World According to Bertie is my favorite book thus far in Alexander McCall Smith's Scotland Street series.

While Pat is still interesting, she's lost first place to Bertie on my list of interesting characters. And Matthew's life took a twist - a nice one - that was completely unexpected.

Reading this so soon after Espresso Tales and Love over Scotland was the right thing to do in terms of enjoyment, but now I'm ready for the next installment in the series - whenever that will be.

I have Portuguese Irregular Verbs on my iPod but haven't listened to it yet. (Same author, different series.) Truth is that I only got it because (1) I loved the title and (2) Hugh Laurie was supposed to be the narrator... but I couldn't get his narration here in the states. Ugh.

I have to admit that Bertie has taken over this series. I'm always rooting for him. The 44 Scotland Street is my favorite series by Alexander McCall Smith.

I listened to this book on CD and couldn't quite get into it although I thought Bertie was a wonderful character. Just couldn't stand his mom. 44 Scotland Street is on the shelf. I hope I like it better.
