THE FULL CUPBOARD OF LIFE springs back with a lot of the energy of the first book. True, there is only one detective case that gets attention in the plot, plus the mystery of Mr. JLB Matekoni's intentions as Mma Ramotswe's fiancée-will he ever name the wedding date-but this volume buzzes with the character development, gentle humor, cultural backdrop and insight into human ironies that blasted the first book to international attention. There are twist endings to both questions posed to Mma Ramotswe. In the meantime, things are looking up for her associate, Mma Makutsi, whose entrepreneurship has brought her comfort in life though as yet has yielded a love interest, and there is much to be learned about the wiles of Mma Potokwani, the orphanage manager who knows how to get what she needs for her just causes. The author is true to his characters and their world, and works a spell with his graceful prose. The country he describes is astounding.
Two new characters are introduced. Mr. Popoletsi is hired as a new employee of Speedy Motors and proves himself a worthy addition to our more familiar group of friends. The relationship between Mma Rakutsi and Phuti Radiphuti is told with both tenderness and restraint.
If you're looking for a gentle but interesting book, try any of this series. They always have a calming influence, and help the reader understand what is truly important in life.
