    Possibly funny but somewhat condescending to his c

    Funny if not flippant throughout in so far as the bookseller chronicles descriptions of the customers who visit his shop. The approach licences to see his customers in the way we might assume a shopkeeper wants to describe them but who otherwise holds back his opinions in real life for fear of offending or losing a customer. However, the daily analysis of his customers did begin to become tedious so that there was a growing sense that the bookseller, rather than being a genial or likeable person, was more interested in whining on about and denigrating the intelligence of his customers.

    Nicely written

    Not at all what I was expecting! It moves along very slowly but ends up being a fair portrait of country life in a small Scottish town.

    Took a while to get into it

    Started off as 1 star & ended up with 4. I think I was expecting something more along the lines of 'Weird Things Customers Say in Bookstores' and thought it a bit tedious in the early part of the book. I found the bookseller unlikeable, he seemed to delight in making people uncomfortable at times and he thought that one of his employees was "admirably disrespectful to customers". However as the book progressed I became more interested in the characters and story, partly due to looking at their facebook page which is mentioned in the book. By the end I was enjoying the book and will probably read the sequel to see how everyone is going. However I would hate to encounter someone like Shaun in a bookstore in case I said something to upset him and was greeted with a blank stare or worse!
