Ladies’ Detective Agency in Botswana

My first thought about the book No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency (1998) was kind of biassed that it would be more for women’s book than men’s. Finally after reading the book I realized that anyone can read it. It was nothing like just for women’s, it was a normal detective story accept the main character wasn’t a man detective as usual we have used to.

The No.1 Ladies’ detective agency is written by Alexander McCall Smith. It was published for the very first time in Great Britain by Polygon in 1998. The story is about Mma Ramotswe’s life in Botswana, Africa. The story begins with her father’s passing away and with leaving a huge fortune for her daughter Mma Ramotswe. Ramotswe used the huge fortune to run her own business by forming The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency.

I enjoyed reading the book, because the story was great and it was different kind of detective book. It was also very easy to read so after all I recommend this book for everyone who likes detective stories.

    Good opinions, but they could have been more versatile. The plot summary is short, but it don’t matter because it’s a detective story so you can’t reveal too much. It’s clear and well summarized text.
