    " I love these characters! Reading these books is like visiting with old friends. I smile through the entire book. I have read that this might be the last in the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series. I sincerely hope not. What will we do without them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leigh | 6/27/2011

    " I love this series. Easy to read and an interesting look at life in Africa. I rented the HBO movie version of this series and enjoyed that, too! "

    " I have great admiration for Alexander McCall Smith. How does he do it - write all these books that are so different and fresh and such a pleasure to read? I am envious. And am looking forward to the next installment... "

    " I love the language of Botswana via McCall Smith. I feel I need a Mma Ramotswae book every summer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 6/24/2011

    " Actually, another 3.5. This book continues in the same vein as the previous Ladies' Detective Agency books. You have to appreciate the simplicity and downright goodness that permeates the main characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Curtiss | 6/23/2011

    " I greatly enjoyed this new edition of The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series. I love them all. Oddly, I have tried McCall-Smith's other series and not been able to get into them. I think the Ladies Detective Agency books are 'Southern' in tone and thus my cup of tea, so to speak. "
