it was amazing
Read in June, 2011 — I own a copy

As with all the rest of this series, I thoroughly enjoyed this little, light read.

I don't know why I like this series so much, except that it just makes me happy. The writing is beautiful, I love the way McCall-Smith uses words and crafts sentences in this book. Much of the charm is the actual writing.

I don't feel the same with any of his other books, the flavor of Botswana is intoxicating. Much of the reason why I mainly stick with Regency & Victorian fiction is that the themes run along the line of the basic goodness and nobility of humanity--something usually missing in anything of a later date. These books feel the same, show people in a flawed, but positive and worthy of consideration and forgiving light.

Newton-ites: I have up to book 10 (this)--I don't believe our library has it. Feel free to borrow. :)
