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 suppose it was bound to happen, the endless repetitions about exactly Leggi tutto
Fourth read: I don't know what else to say about this series. I always enjoy these books. They make everything better. Books can be the cure for what ails you, and that's what these books are to me. Third read: I can't explain the feeling I get when I read these books. Looking forward to rereading th Leggi tutto
Although Precious Ramotswe no longer drives her tiny white van -- she has a more modern blue one now -- she is still compassionately solving problems for her Botswana neighbors. A letter arrives from the state of Minnesota asking Mma Ramotswe to help locate a safari guide who endeared himself to a l Leggi tutto
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
A gentle book to read in hard times. Visiting with the characters again is nice. I love his writing.
"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
Mma Makutsi's nemesis, Violet Sepotho, really is TOO brazen! My goodness! As usual, very charming, which makes some of the hard things that happen easier to bear. Just like with life, when you have good friends around you, things are far less horrible.
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
