The Kalahari Typing School for Men

The Kalahari Typing School for Men by Alexander McCall Smith

Another great book in a wonderful series.

Precious Ramotswe, founder of the No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency has competition in the form of an arrogant, sexist man who has opened his Satisfaction Guaranteed Agency. He believes that his agency is the only one who can help people as he is a man with experience.

Her adopted son has shown some disturbing behaviour in killing a bird and she doesn't quite know how to handle the situation.

Her assistant, Mma Makutsi, wants a husband and decides to open The Kalahari Typing School for Men. One of Mma Makutsi's clients shows interest in her. Finally, Precious Ramotswe's fiancee, Mr. J. L. B. Matekoni is showing no signs of setting a date for their marriage.

Mma Ramotswe shows wisdom and morality in all the problems she solves. Each of the books in this series is like a wave of fresh air.

First Line: "I must remember, thought Mma Ramotswe, how fortunate I am in this life; at every moment, but especially now, sitting on the veranda of my house in Zebra Drive, and looking up at the high sky of Botswana, so empty that the blue is almost white."
