    "Not The Best Interpretation"

    Having read (and loved) all the books in this series, heard them all (and loved Lisette Lecat's reading), and watched every episode of the (all too brief) television series based on the books, I am probably too big a fan for this dramatization. It is a truncated, watered-down version of several of the stories I already know and love.
    Also, while I am far from being an expert in African accents, I found the variety of accents in the production distracting. They didn't sound like the Botswana accents I've heard before--they seemed more like generic African accents.
    If this is your first introduction to the Number 1 Ladies' Detective Agency stories, or if it's all you have time for, then get it. It's certainly better than no Number 1 Ladies' Detective Agency stories! But I think that any one of the original books is a richer, more rewarding listening (or reading) experience.

    "Love the simplicity of the stories."

    Love the philosophy of simple life, very clever wise characters and loads of kindness. Excellent.
