Book Five: 44 Scotland Street

44 Scotland Street, Alexander McCall Smith

There's nothing like a good Alexander McCall Smith novel to get the bad taste of a crappy book out of your mouth. I wasn't sure I would like this series, but now that I've finished the first book I honestly have no idea why I was so worried. Obviously, it has everything good I love in it. Edinburgh, art, little moments in the lives of regular people, humor, kindness, silliness, general philosophizing, and a dog with character. I know it's not groundbreaking or amazing or transcendent, and yet it's the best thing for a grey February when you need to be reminded of the general goodness of humanity.
