This is the most prolific series that I have followed. My library seems to be as big a fan of the series as I happen to be (or whoever triggers these purchases). Each of these titles leads back to my old reviews, and the most adventurous of visitors to my blog might venture to check them out if nothing else you will know how different each of these books is while maintaining the central theme and how far I have come with my reviewing styles.
My enthusiasm for the series might finally be flagging with this one. Although I enjoyed it, it might be a while before I pick up the next. Precious Ramotswe is having trouble reining in her old assistant who now has a title which takes a step further with every retelling. Then her old friend decides to talk Mma Ramotswe into running for political office. It is a background narrative and only culminates in a single chapter further towards the end. The case they get this time is more involved than some of the previous ones, and even Mma Ramotswe does not know how to proceed. Charlie gets his time in the light as he is usually the most bumbling and unhelpful of the lot but this time, gets to sort of save the day.
This has the odd conversations that form the backbone of the serious, with contemplation on human tendencies and what makes life as vital as it is seen to be. I recommend this series (as usual) to anyone who is looking for something different. Each book is straightforward to read, is fast and worth the time it takes. There are a whole other world, habits and thought processes to mull over once you read them.
