First book l read from this author.
Easy (maybe too easy for my taste) entertaining it gives you a feeling of life in Boswana. Calm good people. I wouldn t call it a detective story. There are several parallel stories with a happy ending.

My mother is a fan of this author and as such this made an excellent gift. She very much appreciated the fact that it could be shipped directly to her.

By Brett H #1 REVIEWER#1 HALL OF FAME on Aug. 15 2012
Format: Paperback
The Double Comfort Safari Club is the 11th in the No 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, and like its predecessors it is a gentle and charming tale of life in Botswana. These books can be read and enjoyed on a standalone basis, but I think it is an advantage to have read them consecutively to see how the various relationships of the principal characters has evolved.

This time round Mma Romotswe has a couple of cases to exercise her skills. She has been contacted by an American attorney whose late client has left some money to someone in Botswana who was kind to her and the task is to track this person down. The other case concerns a couple who are known to Mma R, and who apparently each suspect the other of cheating.

I was fortunate to visit Botswana a few years ago, and this series does very much capture the pace of life and the general philosophical outlook of the populace which is considerably removed from what we are used to in the West. These are relatively short books and very easy to read. Most readers will quickly fall into the rhythm of these tales and will thoroughly enjoy them.

I ordered this item only to discover that it is abridged. This has happened to me before because the abridged /unabridged status of a recording is not always clearly indicated, AS IT SHOULD BE. I love this series and expect this book to be a good as the rest, but I want it in UNABRIDGED format.

I was pleased to be able to read this latest novel of Alexander McCall Smith, who makes the country of Botswana and its people, especially Precious, the No. Lady Detective, and her assistant, most appealing. Her philosphy and common sense are refreshing. I love all the regular characters, and I am always sorry get to the last page of each volume. Hope there are more of her adventures forthcoming.
