Morality for Beautiful Girls **

** Morality for Beautiful Girls, Alexander McCall Smith, 2002

I had a four-hour solo road trip ahead of me, and then the four hours back. I zipped to the library on the way out and picked through the meagre selecton of audio books. Some years back I read The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency and found it amusing, but the head hopping annoyed me.

This book still had occasional head hopping, but the thing that made me reach for the fast-forward button was the tedious stating of the obvious in interior monologue. It was all a part of character development and sense of place, but I was not a willing participant.

I doubt I'll give the series another go.
