The third novel in the 'Portuguese Irregular Verbs' trilogy sees von Igelfeld suffering the slings of academic intrigue as a visiting fellow at Cambridge, and the arrows of outrageous fortune in an eventful Columbian adventure. Between trips, von Igelfeld returns to his beloved Regensburg only that to discover while he has been away his murine colleagues have been at play.
Wonderful as always
McCall Smith is a wonderful story teller here, as always. This is an entertaining conclusion to his Portuguese Irregular Verbs trilogy, which had me laughing and crying in turns throughout. Completely captivating, just as the two previous stories were. Hugh Laurie is masterful in his narration of the three books. I don't think I'd have enjoyed reading the books nearly as much as listening to them, given how extraordinary he is in making the characters come alive. An excellent production. Money well spent.
