Random Fiction

The Double Comfort Safari Club (No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency #11) by Alexander McCall Smith

I will not list all the previous books of the series, just the previous one, and you can scroll from there ( I highly recommend you do that, because this is one unique series)

Tea Time for the Traditionally Built (No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, #10)

If you have read through the previous books of the series, either in reviews or in actual books, you would be relatively familiar with the name to follow.

One would not expect a series, ten books in, to continue to feel extremely fresh. This book defies that low expectation and far surpasses it. There is something about spending time with Precious Ramotswe and her Botswana.

The tale begins with outwardly bumbling Mr JLB Maketoni who has extremely profound insights about the world he lives in. Mma Makutsi continues to have uncomfortably insightful criticisms from her shoes. She is facing a hard period in her life which may put her engagement in a risky state. She is taking more days off to deal with the situation with the help of Mma Ramotswe who has more than usual on her plate. She is now extremely established and is having cases come to her from all over. She is to take her first business trip with her assistant. The conversations that the simple individuals have over the realities of life is the backbone of the entire narration ( though it is not preachy in any form).There are comical bits as well where I ended up having bursts of laughter.The tone of the book and the series itself, continues to resound within me. I look forward to another evening with the next book as soon as I lay my hands on it.

New word I stumbled on:

Peripatetic:travelling from place to place, in particular working or based in various places for relatively short periods.

P.S: I have reached a personal milestone in terms of followers directly via WordPress ( twenty may not be that big a number) and despite its small number, I am excited. Also, spread the word if this blog has helped you pick a book.
