    Precious Ramotswe's comfortable existence as the only detective in Botswana is suddenly rattled when the Satisfaction Guaranteed Detective Agency opens, and its brochure proclaims, "Don't take any chances! Entrust your enquiries to a MAN!" As if the development isn't enough, Mma Ramotswe has also taken on two difficult cases, one of which hits close to home. But with wisdom on her side, Mma Ramotswe figures to crack both cases and upstage her competition.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you want a fun read without expectations of fast moving adventure and deep mystery, this book will keep you interested and smiling at the two ladies and their friends and the pictures the book conjures in your mind of the African bush country. I recommend this book for reading when you just want to chill out with a fun story and colorful characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Kalahari Typing School for Men?

    The shoes that Mma Cotswai (sp?) was able to buy with her earnings from the Typing School.


    What does Lisette Lecat bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Wonderful accent and speech pattern.

    Mma "Precious" Ramotswe sets up a detective agency in Botswana on the edge of the Kalahari Desert, making her the only female detective in the country. At first, cases are hard to come by. But eventually, troubled people come to Precious with a variety of concerns. Potentially philandering husbands, seemingly schizophrenic doctors, and a missing boy who may have been killed by witch doctors all compel Precious to roam about in her tiny van, searching for clues.

    Story
    If you could sum up The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency in three words, what would they be?

    historical, enlightening, woman-centered


    What did you like best about this story?

    The historical information from the perspective of a woman who made her way in the world on her own wits and insights.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When she went out in the bush to get the boy and bring him back.


    If you could rename The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, what would you call it?

    I think the title is wonderfully appropriate -- wouldn't change it


    Any additional comments?

    the main character was so clearly described and getting to know her was a real delight.

  • Nine Dragons: Harry Bosch, Book 15

    Story
    (1115)

    The one good thing in Bosch's life, the person he holds most dear, is taken from him and Bosch travels to Hong Kong in an all-or-nothing bid to regain what he's lost. In a place known as Nine Dragons, as the city's Hungry Ghosts festival burns around him, Bosch puts aside everything he knows and risks everything he has in a desperate bid to outmatch the triad's ferocity.

    Kaye E Steeno says: "Transition book?"
    "Narrator is VERY Poor"
    Overall

    The narrator in the audiobook almost made me stop listening to it. He sounded like he had a mouth full of mush. The book itself was OK but really not up to Michael Connelly's standard.
