A month or so ago I posted a bit about the novels of Alexander McCall Smith. It seems too early to mention him again, but after yesterday I must.
Yesterday, I had a rather long day working at a polling station for our provincial election. I knew there'd be a fair bit of downtime and I wanted a fun easy read, so I took along "Portuguese Irregular Verbs".
More than just a fun read, a laugh-out-loud read. More than once I burst out laughing. How can you not laugh at three German professors who decide to play tennis for the first time because how hard can it be once you have the rule book?
So, if you're looking for something short, light and wonderful for this summer, find a copy.
