The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency
Alexander McCall Smith
5 stars.

I was searching for this book for a long time. Wanted to buy it, but the price was too high for my pocket money to afford it. Finally bought it from a second hand book dealer in College Street. The money spent on it was totally justified and well spent.
Although I wouldn't call this book a detective novel, it was more of a kind of mixture of a biography, of Mma Precious Ramotswe and a collection of short stories, written in a format of a novel. But, in all, it was great read, the time was well spent. Anyone who likes, simple people, leading their simple lives with simple uncomplicated values, would love this book.
Special mentions : 1. The description of Africa. Her pride, her sorrow, her happiness. You must really be stone hearted to not feel all those emotions along with Mma Ramotswe.
2. The blurb by Flea.
