Flashback Friday Review!
I will be reviewing The Tears of the Giraffe on Monday, but I wanted to be thorough and post my review of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency first. I originally listened to it in May 2010, and I gave it 5 of 5 stars.
Here's the synopsis from Goodreads: Precious Ramotswe in Botswana sits in the shade and ponders the wisdom of her cattle farmer father, observes her neighbors, and cares for employers and subjects with humor. A clinic doctor has two different personalities depending on the day of the week. A Christian sect member vanishes. A witch doctor may have the bones of a kidnapped boy in his magic kit.
I thought the main character, Precious Ramotswe, was very well-developed, and I enjoyed the setting, in Botswana. The narrator spoke clearly, but was a little slow-paced for my taste. Not slow enough to make me give up on the CDs, though.
*I checked out my copy of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency from my local library.
