I discovered this series only recently and I can understand why, as I found out, it is such a world-wide success and why Mma Ramotswe has become such an icon. It is not great, ponderous literature -- it is much more than that! The plots are simple but well done; the writing very pleasant. However, in my opinion neither plot nor style, perfectly unobjectionable as they are, are these books' main attraction. The characters are, and their interaction. The people come to life all the time: wise, funny, loyal, weak -- completely human. There are great life lessons to be learned in these apparently simple books, from love for humanity, to the need for forgiveness and respect. Objects, and the land, also play an important and unforgettable role. I barely knew where to find Botswana on the world map before, and now it is so vivid in my mind as if I lived there for ever. One warmly given suggestion: read these books chronologically. You will enjoy them even if your read them in an hapazard order, but if you read them as they were written you will be drawn even more into this jewel of a world.

Dear Mma Ramotswe,

After reading this latest book about your detective agency, I suspect that you may soon be looking to hire a new assistant detective. Although I trained as a librarian, I believe I have the qualities you are looking for on Tlokweng Road. First of all I achieved a grade of 98 percent on my library exams, which I believe betters the score of a certain graduate of the Botswana Secretarial College. Through all of your mysteries I have come to love the peaceful nation of Botswana, its father Seretse Khama, its cattle, your daddy Obed, bush tea, the tiny white van, and, most importantly, traditionally built ladies. Of all the mysteries that we order for my library, yours are my favorite. True, each one is much like the other. But that is what I love, the ability to almost complete your sentences, read your thoughts, to know what you will be having for dinner (stewed pumpkin). I never feel more at peace than I do upon re-entering your world in Gabarone. In this book, I love the way familiar friends are placed in unfamiliar situations. Mma Makutsi's red dress and talking shoes alone provide enough drama for an excellent addition to the series, never mind that philandering husband or that unlucky hospital bed. A novel a year is simply not enough for me though--I would like to spend every day with you, Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni and even those good for nothing apprentices who are so like some of my feckless after school volunteers. Patron references available upon request.

Fiction has the ability to transport a reader into the world of the author's choosing. The best fiction enhances the reader's ability to deal with reality. The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency Series, of which this volume is the eighth installment, brings the reader to Botswana--an African nation struggling to maintain its identity as it adopts modern ways--and shows the power to be had in moral living, in trying to do good and be good. No reader can or will regret time spent in Mma Ramotswe's world.

The author's love of Africa pervades his stories. His characters are good people who deal with their circumstances and foibles in an honest and forthright manner so lacking in more "modern" cultures and settings. Africa seems to have retained habits of polite respect, habits now rarely found in this Californian's world. By this eighth volume we have come to know and respect Mma Ramotswe as a person with a singular gift of insight. By now we have seen her deal with numerous difficulties and the author is concentrating on her husband Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni who must deal with a mid-life crisis, her friend Grace Makutsi who must adapt to success, Charlie the Apprentice who is apt to make a mess of things as well as the typical clientele of the Agency; problems are solved.

The genius of Mr. Smith's series is the pacing. There are no hurries. He takes the time to explore his characters' feelings and reactions to life and does so in an engaging, surprisingly readable manner. In a very telling scene, though there may be dangerous crocodiles in the water, Mr. Smith demonstrates that Mma Ramotswe can still, though wary, appreciate the beauty of her wild country. Likewise, though our world is inhabited by crocodiles of a different sort, we learn that happiness can still be found and enjoyed despite all difficulties.

There is an unequalled depth to these characters and their stories are mixed with wry commentary on the human condition that is alone worth the price of the book--there is wisdom in these stories that far exceeds most of the drivel masquerading as literature. Marriage is sanctified, virtue is rewarded, mercy is extended and rewarded; Mr. Smith convincingly portrays the conditions precedent to happiness and true satisfaction with life. His stories give hope.

I prescribe all eight volumes for anyone who is weary of the world in which we live. These books demonstrate that a gentle, peaceful life can still be had amongst the crocodiles.
