Mma Ramotswe finally meets Clovis Andersen, the author of the famous (or not so famous) 'Principles of private detection', and join forces to assist Mma Potokwani. Fanwell runs into a spot of bother with the law, and Mma Makutsi (or should I say Radiphuti)and her husband Phuti decide to have a house built.
This book is full of all the usual innocent charm, observational humour, and the typical dialogue to make the reader smile, which is the trademark of the series. And the tiny white van is still running too.
An excellent addition to the series and a return to top form. Fans of the series are sure to enjoy it!
It is a long time now since I first discovered this series. Some people might wonder how a male Scottish author could write convincingly about African women, but I did find the early books very believable. Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi both had enough troubles and weaknesses to seem real, and over the course of the series other characters came into the limelight from time to time, and moved the series on. This time, unfortunately, I felt that Mma Ramotswe, and particularly Mma Makutsi, were in danger of becoming parodies of themselves - the joke of Mma Makutsi's shoes talking to her has gone on more than long enough. I felt too that the baddies were so transparently bad that it was hard to believe that anybody could be fooled by them for a moment. Another minor annoyance is that Puso and Motholeli (the adopted children) were wheeled on for a page or two and then forgotten about. I am disappointed that Violet is once again an off stage presence. Overall I was left feeling that Clovis was introduced to spice up a dish that has been reheated too often.Read more ›
my only small issue is with the size of the hardback book. I have the whole series on my bookshelf, and this volume is larger than the others and the cover is from a different designer. I would have preferred all the books to have been the same size.
I was astonished when the book suddenly ended - it seemed to me that the author had reached the required number of pages, and simply stopped! The later books of John Grisham have suffered in the same way, so I do hope Alexander McCall Smith doesn't fall into this trap. Yes, all the loose ends were tidied up, but in a very hurried and contrived way in the final few pages. Disappointing.
