I thoroughly enjoyed all three books. I found the characters compelling and the storyline, as their fortunes intertwined, gripping. Well researched.
After a short period of adjustment during the first couple of chapters of the first book, I had no problem at all with the use of phonetic Scots dialect etc. Rather, I found it easy to follow, and felt it added hugely to the authenticity and made the characters more tangible. I can sympathise that readers from outside the UK might find it challenging but can't see any reason why a Brit used to our local dialects would struggle (I'm Welsh).
