Product Description

Review

#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER
 
INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
 
"Smith again makes the sublime look easy in his winning 12th No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency novel… Smith has few peers in capturing the quiet moments of people's lives, and his empathetic lead has one of the biggest hearts in modern literature. Even newcomers will quickly be drawn into Mma Ramotswe's unconventional approach to investigations and rapidly feel that they are with old friends."
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Utterly charming and compulsively readable.”
Newsweek
 
“The pleasure of these sweet books lies in the clarity and gravity with which the characters reason through everyday dilemmas.”
Entertainment Weekly
 
“McCall Smith’s characters are quick to find joy in small things. . . . In its own way, McCall Smith’s world is as stylized and hermetic as those created by P.G. Wodehouse or Damon Runyon—a sweet and timeless bubble with its own morality, language and customs. Entering it can be a source of great comfort in these uncertain times.”
— The Seattle Times

The Oregonian

"Utterly enchanting."
Chicago Sun-Times

This seems to be the last volume of the No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency. Let's hope I am wrong.
There was much written about the series and this title. The positive, light spirited, the wisdom, the interesting characters, made it the most popular of the author's different topics. As I agree with all the praise, I would like to concentrate on one thing which bothered me in some of the latest volumes.
Mma Ramotswe lost her only child when she was first unhappily married, and she cannot have any more children. Therefore, after she married Mr. Matekoni, they adopted two orphans-a boy and a girl. The girl is in the wheel chair. And yet, we don't hear about the children, except that they either are going to bed, or are asleep. The reader has a feeling that this household is a childless one. Mma Ramotswe is free to plan her days, both parents are supposed to be very busy, but what are the children doing? They go to school alright, but what is happening when they are home? Certainly, the girl in a wheelchair needs much attention. How are they growing up? What is their appreciation of their parents? Do the parents teach them anything? Are there any problems, ever?
After adopting the children, the author forgot to integrate them into the household.

Excellent writing, I can hear the African accent in the speech.
More African stuff from this writer will surely sell.

I love this series of books. Gentle stories about everyday people trying to get along with others and understand what makes people do the things they do.

I can't get enough of this series. Smith just has a magic way with words and the plot solutions are simply inspired. Keep writing, Mr. Smith.
