SUMMARY ´ Trains and Lovers In the words of Alexander McCall Smith You feel the rocking of the train you hear the sound of its wheels on the rails; you are in the world rather than suspended somewhere above it And so. I traveled a lot on trains during the 1950s When I discovered this stand alone book about trains by Alexander McCall Smith I just had to read it The book is well written It is about four people traveling between Edinburgh to London They tell each other stories about trains that have changed their lives The four people were one woman and three men The woman was from Australia one man from Scotland one from England and one from America The book is the usual AMS story It is a delightful meandering story with a moral base I found it a charming relaxing story I know that people either love AMS books or hate them I happen to love them I have been reading very long books recently so this short book was a great reliefI read this as an audiobook downloaded from Audible The book is five hours twenty minutes Robert Ian Mackenzie does an excellent job narrating the books Mackenzie is a British actor and audiobook narrator

SUMMARY ´ Trains and Lovers Metimes there are conversations to be had which is what the overarching story in this collection is all about It is a simple device people brought together entertain one another with tales. How I do with we could use half stars because this is a 45 rather than flat four I am a massive fan of Alexander McCall Smith s work One of the things I love about him is ability to jump from series to series and give to each a uniue voice The voice of No 1 Ladies Detective Agency is different to 44 Scotland Street and so onAnd so it is with Trains and Lovers The voice is different the feel is different and the flavour is different I took this in to hospital with me when undergoing a gallbladder removal It was the last thing in my hand as I left the ward and it was the first thing I asked for when I reentered it three hours later I read it in one day and loved every momentFour strangers meet on a train and start up a conversation The topic turns to love and each offers their own experience of it either to the group or within themselves A beautiful work that celebrates true love how it is obtained and how it is kept WonderfulOh and one aspect I really enjoyed was the story set in Western Australia As a Perth girl who has spent time in the Wheat Belt the East Kimberley and the Pilbara I found the setting and circumstances offered to be spot on a slice of reality of how it lives in our harsh West

    (PDF FREE) [Trains and Lovers] author Alexander McCall Smith Alexander McCall Smith is known for gentle humour and a light touch and he shows a great fondness for humanity occasionally slipping over into sentimentality One suspends judgement on that however because he takes you on a very pleasant journey This book was definitely an antidote to the last book I reviewed which takes a very dim v
