Dicono che nei successivi romanzi la sua capacità di giallista si affini: in questo primo romanzo, più che altro una raccolta di racconti brevi ma tutti concatenati in una storia che poi è l'introduzione della protagonista, Mccall Smith ti corteggia, ti incuriosisce, e ti fa scoprire il Botswana, che sembra sia proprio così, semplice, piccolo ed ancora facile da vivere. Spero di conoscerlo prima o poi, e spero proprio che non si rovini.

It`s a cute story, but I feel that it`s overly romantic and simplistic about life in Botswana. Not that I know about what it`s like to live in Africa, but I think that if I expected it to be like how this book describes it I would be sorely disappointed.
It`s written in a simple, childlike manner and I do love the descriptions of the desert and of the characters. While the book does deal with the topics of death, domestic abuse, racial tensions and corruption, they seem to be more important as points in the plot rather than as an everpresent background.
I enjoyed reading it as a modern African fairytale, but I think I was hoping to gain a more realistic insight into life in Botswana.
