    Story
    "Gentle humour with a message"

    Raises smiles rather than laughter. Very agreeable reading with happy endings - eventually. Perhaps a little simplistic, but if you want some feelgood literature that doesn't demand too much, well this is for you.

    When I drive, I read... uhm listen. I like SciFi, Fantasy, some Detective and Espionage novels and Religion. Now and then I will also listen to something else.

    "Vividly read with a lot of mispronunciations"

    Alexander McCall Smith's no.1 Ladies Detective Agency books are always a treat to read... and to listen. While Hillary Neville does a tremendously good job of bring the story alive, her lack of knowledge on how to pronounce certain South African English, Afrikaans and Setswana words, irritates my ear. Especially mispronouncing some of the Setswana surnames of the main characters.

    When she uses the greeting "Dumela," it sounds horrible, mispronounced...

    "A good listen..."

    The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency stories are very good (all that I have read so far- books 1-4), though at first it takes a little getting used to the names of the characters. Really enjoyable, yet i did not like the TV adaption!
