The Sunday Philosophy Club
by Alexander McCall Smith
Pub Date 07 Feb 2013
I have read many of his books especially enjoying his No 1 Ladies Detective Agency based in Botswana. He is a great speaker and if you have the chance to see him at a Book Festival then book up! However …
Where was the Philosopher Club described in the title? We never attended a meeting but we got lots of social content, mores and philosophical conundrums. The book felt at times that the “crime” story was secondary to the philosophical content. The story meanders along pleasantly enough with plenty of believable characters and twists in the tale. The ending was rather sudden and seemed incomplete. Very disappointing!
