Besides the enjoyment of being able to read as much or little as you wish at a time, the individual tales hold you captive in their ability to make you want to know what happens next.
There is Pat, a 20 yr old, second year gap student, trying to make her way in the city. She leases a shared flat with Bruce, a clerk with a surveyor company. Bruce is very aware of his beauty to all. Pat attains a job with Matthew, an art gallery owner with his own issues.
A lovely widow, Domenica lives across the way and befriends Pat with her tales of life and adventure.
Downstairs, is a family, Stuart, Irene, and their five year old Son, Bertie. Bertie is a genius, according to Mummy, and is forced to play the Saxophone (tenor at that,) and learn Italian. Bertie? Well, he loves trains.
We meet characters from outside the apartment house as well. Big Lou, owner of the coffee house who reads everything she can, and Angus, a portrait painter with his pooch, Cyril (who sports a gold tooth and love of ale.)
I read this first volume in a day. It was a compulsion to see what happened next. Not to mention to figure out the mysterious painting...
Indulge yourselves and share in a good gossip. It is a guilty pleasure in this case.
I have never been to Edinburgh (it's a long way from Australia!) but I know I will love it when I eventually visit. I'm sure there are many jokes hidden in events which take place in identifiable locations that I have missed but there is quite sufficient humour in the book without entirely catching the gentle jibes the locals would have enjoyed immediately.
I am already looking forward to reading more of this series!
