Book Review: The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith

Written By E.A. Blair Jr.
January 21th, 2010

This writing is the first effort that is hoped will peak, prod and poke readers' interest in the considered subjects. I will range widely in my choices of consideration both for my own entertainment and the reader's. I will shun boredom and hopefully engage the reader's interest and appetite for examination.

The first work off the shelf is The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith.This is a most improbable book about an improbable character named Precious in an improbable African country of Botswana. The particular oddness of the main character's career choice, namely becoming a detective on the outskirts of the Kalahari, is at once engaging and illustrates the sly cleverness of the author.
