The Kalahari Typing School for Men (No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, #4)- McCall Smith, Alexander

This book is the fourth book in the series of Precious Ramotswe and her life ( It definitely stretches beyond her Ladies Detective agency)

I gave this book 4/5 stars

My review might coincide in parts with the blurb on the cover of the book but that is not because i am holding it next to me and typing it due to a lack of words in my retinue. The book jacket does a pretty good job of concisely reporting the contents .

The ladies detective agency has a new rival who is a comical character ( for us that is) and the two new cases introduced are deftly dealt with. The wedding date is not even discussed ( sorry for the spoiler alert) and as usual life in Botswana is described in colourful detail. These details are enough to enjoy the book. I cannot complete the review without making a reference to the title, Mma Makutsi starts a typing school as a way to earn more money. Since her dual income from the Garage and as assistant detective is not enough for her to have adequate savings. I am yet to confirm how true these books might be to actual life in Botswana, but if life there is even remotely close to the entertaining picture painted by the author, it would be a sight to behold.
