without a doubt Ruby it has to be... but Doctor Donald came a close second..

the family of Ruby's are a laugh, except for Big Bee , Iris the Slut, and poor old Uncle Jakie and Wee dug. you have got to listen to this even if you are not from Glasgow. the voice of Barbara Rafferty is superb a 5***** raiting . this story will stay with me for a very long time. its worth a Wee credit.. go on spoil yourself..
I am enjoying the listener page as I find other readers recommendations very helpful and refreshingly honest prior to choosing a new book.
Another great Glasgow saga with brilliant characters. I have read all of this author's books and this is a stoater.
