I didn‘t like this book. The constant bickering between the two main characters was so annoying.

Interesting.

Amaranthae I'm finding it interesting too but, at the moment, I can't see me carrying on with this series. This book is OK, for me, as a stand alone but beyond that... the jury s out. 4mo
PhyllisH @Amaranthae I‘m sorry it‘s taken so long to reply. I‘ve been away from Litsy for awhile.
I feel the same way. It was interesting but I found the repression of women to be depressing.

Interesting and informative. IMHO this book is better than book one of the three book series. Looking forward to book three.

I bailed on this book. I really tried to like it since I liked A Man Called Ove. Unfortunately, the fantasy parts of the story ruined it for me 😟

I really liked this book. It‘s interesting, at times it‘s sad and unsettling. It follows a Jewish family on the run from the nazis.

I love Alexander McCall Smith‘s writing. I liked this book, but not as much as his books from the Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency series. This is book one of the Detective Varg series. I enjoyed the light moments of humor in the book.
