Antonia Deluca I love his books. They are like the comfort food that we like eat when we want to feel secure and snug. Love his voice. Only the English can make everything sound so intelligent.

Jackie Cooper Have loved every book by Alexander McCall Smith I've read - all the Botswana and all the Isabel Dalhousie series. They're gems.

Linrob3824 Though of 'deeper' meaning, McCall-Smith's novels are on a par with Jane Austin in their gentle and civilized rendering of of life's conflicts. Redeeming qualities can be found in all his characterizations. And yet, complex conclusions are forthcoming. Can't get enough of AMS.

Rob Davies One of my favourite writers. He has a wonderful, magical and yet logical way of describing things and his characters are always well-drawn, different and real. My favourites are the No. 1 Ladies Detective series.
