Book Review: Chance Developments: Stories

Written by: Alexander McCall Smith

This is the first book that I have read by Alexander McCall Smith, which was my loss as he is such a wonderful writer. Smith based his stories on the odd story that he was given and while i didn’t always agree with his perspective, his writing could not be faulted.

The stories vary a bit in length, typically about “novelette” size. The first one, about a nun who leaves her order and rejoins society, was fun. The second story made me want to put it down, but I continued and the thread that went through all of them, love, made me want to continue to red.  I am glad i did, the whole of the book was great!   

  I will be reading more of his books, now that ai have discovered Smith.  Chance Developments is a wonderful book and I highly recommend this book.

This book was given to me in exchange for an honest and objective review.
