The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith

May 15, 2012

I loved the format of this book: one overarching case with several smaller cases in the middle, all of which helped develop the personality of Mma Ramotswe and also explore some of the cultural realities of Africa. It all came together so beautifully. The beginning was a little slow for me, and the ending was a bit abrupt (I think I expected more of a climax with the witch doctor...maybe more confrontation/danger?), but overall, I loved this book and the author's style, and I will definitely be reading the other books in the series.

This review was written before the birth of this blog.
