I thought The Good Husband was a great addition to the series. If you haven't read any other books in the series, I wouldn't advise that you start with this novel. In this story a majority of plot depends on the characters and their relationships that were developed in earlier stories. Alexander Smith does an excellent job of bringing out these characters and their relationships but in my opinion it still would be a cumbersome read if you have not been educated by the earlier books. This is just my opinion. This novel is another wonderful tribute to Botswana and to the values; loyalty, honesty, compassion that the characters hold dear. In summary I would say this is a very entertaining read that will keep you reading page after page.

This, the latest in the marvelous series by Alexander McCall Smith, is just as _______(fill in from other reviews, e.g. quirky, lovable, unique,universal...) as the rest. But if I might add a spin: What no one may have said before is what a great selection this may be for someone who is forgetful. My mother, at 90, loved to read before her short term memory betrayed her. This series she enjoys mightily, and looks forward to each new book. She can hold on to the memorable characters, so lovingly drawn and so vivid that they "stick." The stories are warm, expressive of values she holds dear, and the pace suits her just fine. Not much happening here -- just enough mystery to keep it rolling. In fact, the mystery is akin to those we find in our own lives: will she/won't she; you'll never believe...; well, what happened next? These are perfect stories for everyone who has little extra brain space or time for complex tales that depend on twists of plot for value. She loves them, I love them, and you and your beloved sage might, too.

Such a wonderful book. The writing in this Series is so beautiful. This is the 4th book in the series I've read (out of order!) and I feel I've gotten to know the characters well and love them. Grace Makutsi is droll in her interaction with the apprentices & Mr. Pulopetsi, and especially with her shoes. Precious Ramotswe is the loving, wise and strength of character aunt who enfolds you in her arms for when you need succor. The cases the Detective Agency takes on is a secondary story to the human aspects of how these characters interact with one another and their fellow man; their observervations & musings of the human tendencies and behavior; and the values they expound. And really, they make me reflect on living a simpler life. I love this series and look forward to reading more of them!
