Very pleasant and easy read. Business trip to Maun! Always enjoyable :)
As a traditionally shaped woman myself, I cannot help but love these books. I wish I were as wise as Mma Ramotswe. Not just wonderful stories but wisdom for life is offered in McCall's books: "That was the way the world was; it was composed of a few almost perfect people (ourselves); then there were a good many people who generally did their best but were not all that perfect (our friends and colleagues); and finally, there were a few rather nasty ones (our enemies and opponents)."
This author never fails to amuse and entertain me, and this book was no exception!
I have read most of this series and this one is absolutely one of the best. The trip up the river is hilarious. A must read!
Haven't read one of these in a while, but I'm glad I picked this one up! It was lovely to reacquaint myself with Mma Ramotswe and Mma Matusi, the main characters in the series. As always, Mma R and her sidekick Mma M, solve mysteries with grace and aplomb. Always something learned about human nature.
I agree, a visit with old friends! What would a book in this series without mentioning bush tea and Mma Makutsi's 97%! Charming, indeed. Do not agree the series should come to an end..I, for one, will keep reading and enjoying these clever and refreshing stories. By the way, can anyone tell me what Mma and Rra stand for/how to pronounce? I laughed at the description of men pages 38-39--fun!
A delight as usual. Its always nice to visit with old friends.
Interesting descriptions of modern-day Botswana, combined with Precious Ramotswe's insight into human nature, which helps her resolve problems. Not the usual idea of a mystery story, but I have enjoyed each one in this series, so far. Don't bother with the other series' this author writes.
A fun light read. It contains a little history, social insights, and character development for other books in the series.
I chuckle every time I read about the "traditionally built" women described in the series.
How this man manages to crank out the number of books he does every year and keep them as fresh and entertaining as he does is beyond me. This 11th in the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series brings tragedy to Mma Makutsi and her fiance, a special and unexpected gift to two safari guides, and comeuppance to Violet, Mma Makutsi's long time nemesis. Nevertheless, Mma Ramotswe manages to bring a satisfactory resolution to everything.
