Customer Review

on 17 March 2006
I had feared that Alexander McCall Smith had abandoned the No.1 Ladies Detective Agency in favour of writing about his rather boring Edinburgh detective. Happily, here we are back in Botswana with Mma Ramotswe, the 'tradiitionaly built' lady detective, and all the other charming characters we are familiar with.
Mma Ramotswe has as usual an interesting selection of problems to solve, a cook who is stealing food, a doctor who may be cheating his patients, and a case of blackmail. She also has more personal problems to deal with, like her worry about her size, which causes her to go on a diet. And her assistant, Mma Makutsi, is having trouble with her fiancee, she fears she may have frightened him away by her confession that she is a feminist "Men are very frightened of feminists" as Mma Ramotswe explains.
Of course, everything is sorted out by the end, as it always is, and everyone is happy again. These books are full of delightful characters, quiet humour, and lyrical descriptions of Botswana and its people and customs. A delight to read.
