Read full description of the books:
I am beginning to weary of the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency books. The writing is as good as ever, McCall has his own distinctive style - warm, compassionate and almost childlike, but the series has deteriorated into a serial. I suppose it was bound to happen, the endless repetitions about exactly who Mma Ramotswe (and her long-late father, Obed), Mma Makutsi, Mr. J.L.B. Makatoni, Mma Pokowane and the evil Violet Sephotho could not go on and this book has revealed nothing new about them at all. But with only those characters to build the stories around, it has become too cosy and a bit silly. Violet Sephotho is almost a cartoon character in a children's serial - what man will she attempt to scam next?
So although the book was enjoyable, it seemed tired compared to the freshness of the first half-dozen books and a bit formulaic. I'm almost at the Jodi Picoult stage - promising myself I won't read yet another one of her-variations-on-a-theme always written the same way, but this series is headed that way.
I do like Mma Ramotswe et al very much, but when there isn't anything new to say perhaps its time to call it a day and say goodbye as they all drive off in the little white van into the endless Botswanan sunset.
