Reviews
Praise for Alexander McCall Smith's Isabel Dalhousie series

"Isabel's search for truth follows a route that offers tantalizing glimpses of Edinburgh's complex character and a nice, long look into the beautiful mind of a thinking woman." --The New York Times Book Review

"Delicious mental comfort food." --Los Angeles Times

"[Isabel] is by turns fearless, vulnerable, headstrong, and insecure, but always delightful." --Chicago Tribune

"Philosophical inquiries are spontaneous and ongoing, stitched into everyday life and conversation. . . . Genial [and] wise. . . . Glows like a rare jewel." --Entertainment Weekly

"A world where humor is gentle, suffering is acknowledged but not foregrounded, and efforts to do good are usually rewarded. It's a wonderful place to visit, even if we don't get to live there." --The Washington Post

"[Isabel] is such good company, it's hard to believe she's fictional." --Newsweek
