La signora Ramotswe e la sua assistente Grace Makutsi, gli unici due investigatori in gonnella del Botswana, hanno modi ben diversi di prendere la vita. Conciliante l’una e permalosissima l’altra, difficilmente potrebbero gestire in armonia la Ladies’ Detective Agency N.l se non disponessero dei preziosi consigli di Clovis Andersen, l’autore dei Principi dell’indagine privata. Ma questa volta per lui assisterle non è facile, perché a rivolgersi alle due investigatrici è una loro amica e il manuale suggerisce di non accettare incarichi da conoscenti e famigliari… Ma Precious Ramotswe ascolta sempre ciò che le dice il cuore e di lì a poco si ritrova coinvolta in una storia di tradimenti e insoddisfazioni coniugali... Ma non è finita… L’efficiente signorina Makutsi subisce un grave affronto, e per distrarla la signora Ramotswe la porta con sé in un irresistibile viaggio nel selvaggio nord. Le due donne partono per un’avventura on the road da cui torneranno sempre più amiche.

I am beginning to weary of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency books. The writing is as good as ever, McCall has his own distinctive style - warm, compassionate and almost childlike, but the series has deteriorated into a serial.

I cannot say enough about Alexander McCall Smith's writing style. Gentle, humorous, touching, and drawing true to life pictures of the human condition. Sometimes I cannot believe he is not a woman - he seems to have fully identified how women think and he amazes me. I crave a trip to Botswana becaus Leggi tutto
I love the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series and I was excited to read this newest edition. The pace of life is slow and pleasant in the stories and the main character, Precious Ramotswe, tries so hard to always be kind and help other people. My favorite passage from the book: "Having the right a Leggi tutto
"Be content with who you are and where you are, and do whatever you can do to bring to others such contentment, and joy, and understanding that you have managed to find yourself." Armed with this advice from her father, and her red bush tea, Mma Ramotswe again brings order and peace to her corner of Leggi tutto
A gentle book to read in hard times. Visiting with the characters again is nice. I love his writing.
The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency books are like a breath of fresh air. Each one is so well written, so poignant and charming, so easy to read; that I'm always done before I know it. Even as I crack open each book, I am sad because I know that all too soon, the story will be over. I just cannot slo Leggi tutto
The two cases No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency is working on are: (i) find a camp guide who had been kind to an American woman and has now inherited a lot of money, and (ii) help a man fooled by a woman, who has cheated him out of his inheritance, regain his money. Meanwhile, Phuti Radiphuti has had a Leggi tutto
Whilst I am always on a mission to ensure that anyone who has yet to read one of these books goes away to try one immediately, I have come to realise that they're not everyone's cup of tea. I love them. I have loved them from the first moment I discovered them, and they never disappoint me. I feel s Leggi tutto
I just love reading about Mma Precious Ramotswe adventures with her assistant Grace Makutsi’. This time there is a midwive and her hanky panky. A man who got tricked out of his house by the infamous Violet Sephotho. The safari trip to find a guide (eeck! lions, hippos, and crocodiles, have goose-bumps Leggi tutto
