This book put me in touch with a culture I have not personally experienced before:Botswana. It was a delight to read of different outlooks on life and death (people and animals who have died are 'late') and the world we live in, it was lovely to read of people who still feel attached to the soil of their homeland, it was inspiring to hear words and language used in a different way - all this in the context of a good, simple, detective story. The only drawback was that it was so enjoyable I read it very, very quickly.
