The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency

Alexander McCall Smith’s book The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency is very popular. I have a distrust of public opinion however, at least regarding literature, so I started reading it with a somewhat sceptical view.

I was pleasantly surprised, however. This book is written with a very pleasant, easy style and captures an optimistic, down-to-earth and authentically African viewpoint. The main character is a true Mama Afrika.

In all this constitutes light reading (it only kept me busy two or three days), but is still insightful and worthwhile.

That is the problem with governments these days. They want to do things all the time; they are always very busy thinking of what things they can do next. That is not what people want. People want to be left alone to look after their cattle.
