I was very excited to find this in the University Bookshop the other day. Mma Rawotswe makes me happy. I have to admit, and I'm slightly ashamed, that I am not a massive fan of literary fiction. I like to read, but I like my books to have obvious stories about people. I struggle if you have to try and elucidate a deeper meaning. I hate finishing a book and not having a clue what it was about. Perhaps that's to do with my scientist's mind. I'm not a thinker. It's a bit embarrassing, my sister has a drama degree and my mum is a writer, they're big readers of good books. Although, mum has always said, it doesn't matter what you read as long as you do read. I must admit to agreeing fairly frequently, although not always, with Richard and Judy. So, The Number One Lady's Detective Agency Series, I love. Easy reads, with great stories. And I've just spotted this too, also by Alexander McCall Smith! It is the third in the 44 Scotland Street series, the first of which I loved, and the second not so much. And this one will be next (although buying hardbacks is naughty so it'll have to wait til next month). Adriana Trigiani is ace, and silly as it sounds, reading Big Stone Gap was life changing for me. I really should re-read it. This latest one is the fourth in the Big Stone Gap series. Her others in between kind of tailed off a bit. Anyway ramble ramble ramble, I recommend all these authors!
I've decided that I'm going to start replying to your lovely comments in the comments section, so make sure if you've left a comment to check back. I'm not sure why I haven't done this before really. Perhaps because I don't ever re-check other people's comments. Maybe I'll start.
