No need for worry. McCall Smith has a gift for storytelling and with little fanfare, he easily pulls the reader back into the world of Gabarone, Botwana and all the inhabitants we have come to know and love. As Precious Ramotswe and the rest of the gang at the detective agency/mechanic shop prepare for Mma Maktusi's wedding, several interesting cases and situations come across their desks. As Mma Ramotswe hunts for answers, she finds out that Charlie, one of the junior mechanics in the garage, got himself into quite a situation. And last, but certainly not least, Mma Ramotswe begins to see visions of her old white van, which she still hasn't gotten over losing.
I think this book is much stronger than the previous book in the series (Double Comfort Safari Club)- it feels a lot more centered. I really do love reading about the dynamics between the characters as much as I like reading about Mma Ramotswe's investigations into various cases and crimes.
Regardless, this book is like coming home. It was a delight to read and I'll be eagerly awaiting the next installment.
The book itself is lovely, most of what you'd expect from this perfectly delightful series. Lots of gentle wit, reassuring philosophical observations, and fun stories that stayed with me through the day. But I do get the sense that the author's heart may not have been in this one as much as it has been in previous books. I kept wanting to hear from Puso and Motholeli, Mma Ramotswe's adopted children, and see how they were growing. Then, there were plotlines that were barely dealt with (Violet Sephotho's running for office took up all of two pages), and the main mystery did not, I felt, have a satisfying conclusion. But the main storylines were sweet, particularly the parts about Charlie, and I enjoyed this book thoroughly even with my few minor complaints.
If you're a fan, read them in order so you don't spoil the plot for yourself. The buildup as we get to know each character is part of the fun of this series.
to read. Mr. Smith does not take long to tell a story whether in this series or another one of his. All are
great stories and worth reading. These are very "clean" stories for those who care about that. I love
all of the books he has written and this one is a great addition.
The reader is superb and adds tremendously to the experience,
