LoveReading Says

Comforting, thought-provoking, and oh-so readable, this sums up the joy of a novel by Alexander McCall Smith. He has that glorious gift of uncomplicated eloquence. Here, we return to Botswana and the No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, where Mma Ramotswe and Makutsi with their very different personalities, view the world and put it to rights. I really do love this series. The sense of place settles in glorious colourful waves. The complexities of human relationships weave in and out of the story, creating smiles and raising eyebrows. The humour on offer here is thoughtful, never cruel, while the plot is as principled as Mma Precious Ramotswe herself. A gentle flow of thoughts make themselves known, simple yet occasionally surprising. A Song of Comfortable Chairs ensures that this series maintains it compassionate witty notes and fully deserves all the accolades it has received.
