The Sunday Philosophy Club
2 journalers for this copy...
Picked up from the library on the Island Star cruise ship...the first in a new tec series from AMcS. I'm looking forward to this :)
(2/11) Beware the testimonial on the blurb, ‘The No.2 Lady Detective…anyone who loves Precious cannot fail to be charmed’. Well I think that Mma Precious Ramotswe is great, but I was underwhelmed by the Edinburgh-based bluestocking Isabel Dalhousie. Despite only being in her early 40’s, she seems to be set in her ways as an interfering joyless spinster (more Miss Marple than Kinsey Millhone)...and what’s more the Sunday Philosophy Club didn’t even meet, and ID annoying appends the words ‘moral’ or ‘ethical’ to almost any question, dilemma or random thought that pops into her head. Not interesting, a weak story, unengaging characters, disappointing!
Now available on the Official BookCrossing Zone bookshelf in Caffe Nero, King's Parade, Cambridge.
If you have picked up this book, thank you for visiting the website (and the cafe!). Please take a moment to let us know you have the book, then post your review when you've read it, and pass it on to someone else. If you join, you'll be able to see what's happened to it afterwards - for ever!
P.S. I (LindyB28) loved this book so much that I immediately put the sequel on my wishlist, which is, incidentally, just as lovely. I'm now waiting for the third Isobel novel to come out in paperback!
