Another charmer. ( )

Casually concentrating on the subtle, more quiet and less noticable while pointing out the big issues. MsCall Smith manages to interest the reader without even trying, enters and leaves your mind without upseting your inner "furniture". His is the gentle way and he keeps at it with great success. I assume Mc Call Smith is like his books and the writing comes naturally, like some actors never attempt to take other characters on, simply being themselves over and over again. Pleasant and calming, establishing and confirming a certain order in the world. ( )
