Publisher's Summary

The newest installment of Alexander McCall Smith's perennially popular and irresistibly charming 44 Scotland Street series.
Bertie's respite from his overbearing mother, Irene, is over. She has returned home from the Middle East, only to discover that her son has been exposed to the worst of evils: cartoons, movies, and even carbonated beverages. But the one who should be most concerned is her unfortunate husband, Stuart, upon whom her wrath is about to descend.
Meanwhile, Bruce has fallen in love with someone other than himself; Big Lou wants to adopt her beloved Finlay; Matthew and Elspeth host the Duke of Johannesburg for supper; and Bertie decides he wants to move away from Scotland Street altogether and live with his grandmother, Nicola. Will Irene and Stuart's marriage survive? Will Bruce's newfound love last? And can Bertie really be leaving home?
With wit, warmth, and humor, Alexander McCall Smith explores these matters of the heart and more with the colorful cast of characters from 44 Scotland Street.

Not again

Would you consider the audio edition of The Bertie Project to be better than the print version?

You tend to get to the character by the way Narrator portrayed them.The voice used for Bertie and Stewart leads you to feel sorry while Irene's voice triggers anger.

What did you like best about this story?

Stewart developing a backbone for awhile

What does Robert Ian Mackenzie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The pain and struggles of the characters- a sense of meekness in Bertie thetas common to his father.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The struggles of the Bertie and Stewart is becoming more unbelievable. Somebody needs happiness.

More on Bertie, soon, if you please!!

Quite a lot happens in this book, but I'm always yearning for Bertie to have more adventures and for Stewart to "man up" to his impossible wife! I do hope Alexander McCall Smith is busily writing more of these adventures right now!!
