5) In the Company of Cheerful Ladies, by Alexander McCall Smith

Having enjoyed the first of these three years ago, and bounced off the second, I finally got around to this one thanks to my self-imposed reading programme.

Yes, an enjoyable book. Not a lot actually happens; by the end of the book almost everyone is pretty much back where they started, but older, wiser and perhaps even a little happier. A gentle, undemanding narrative, with some nice moments of character observation.

Top UnSuggestion for this book:
  1. How to read the Bible for all its worth : a guide to understanding the Bible by Gordon D. Fee
  2. Design patterns: elements of reusable object-oriented software by Erich Gamma
  3. Cunt: a declaration of independence by Inga Muscio
