Random Fiction

The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection (No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, #13) by Alexander McCall Smith

Its baaack! Before I explain that random beginning I need to mention that I gave myself a day off from putting up reviews because

  1.  I had not finished any book but was midway between a few.
  2. My reviews were starting to sound stale to me. Since I was devouring books and regurgitating the reviews at warp speed, I was not able to put forward the picture of the stories the way I wanted to. Luckily enough I did not have too many great books that I might have done injustice to (the review ratings have not been very high overall the last month).

I feel refreshed with the speed I have read this book(slow) and therefore feel up to the challenge of trying to describe this tale.

I have been following this series for more than a year now. The last two were not as exciting as the majority of the series.This book has that something special which make them a very enjoyable read.(#12,#11 being the last two installments).I would suggest reading through a few of the old reviews before reading this one for greater impact.

By the time we arrive into the lives of our characters this time, Mma Ramotswe has had a strange dream that she is trying to interpret, Mma Makutsi is settling into her married life, one of the apprentices have qualified(it is obviously not Charlie) and is a full-time employee.Mma Potokwane is in trouble at her job and both the ladies of the No1. Ladies detective agency rush to the rescue since there might be more than meets the eye in the complex scenario, Fanwell (now mechanic) is in trouble with the law and the most startling coincidence is the actual appearance of ‘THE’ Clovis Anderson.The heart that beats through most of the series continues to thrum through the passage of the days where the women try to straighten out the quandaries presented to them. We have more deep conversations about Africa/Botswana and the bond between man and land.The small mental conversations that people have during uncomfortable situations is very interesting . This is definitely a good book for anyone to enjoy.I am already looking forward to the next one and am glad I stuck it through the last two books.
