The plot is secondary for this series of books, after all, it is almost the same. What I like is Ramotswe's musings about life, which is all so true. And in this book, Ramotswe was worrying about 3 things - Charlie and his troubles with his ex-girlfriend and her new-born twins, handling Mpho's confession of his crime and what to tell her client, and getting back her old van. In the end, it turned out that those twins aren't Charlie's; Ramotswe didn't have to tell her client about Mpho's confession because he turned up with a new lead (and one thing led to another); and Charlie told Matekoni about Ramotswe's desire to get her old van back, leading to Matekoni buying back the van for her. Though fictional, it quite mirrors life - we shouldn't worry so much about things, sometimes they resolve on their own. One more thing I learned from Ramotswe - if you have requests to ask of others, always say positive things about them. Or ask direct, depending on the situation. ( )

Listened to this on PlayAway device from the library. Cozy mystery. ( )

For a while I felt like the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series had jumped the proverbial shark. So after a several year hiatus, I decided to pick it back up again. The The Saturday Big Tent Wedding Party seems to pick up the energy that was lost in the series, and keeps all the familiar joys: Grace Makutsi's relationship with her shoes, Mma Ramotswe's love for her little white van, etc. As he does in the earlier books in the series, Alexander McCall Smith manages to undergird his charming story with tougher questions about the secrets and assumptions that assail us every day. My only real criticism here is the title--the actual wedding itself is summed up in a couple of pages, so those hoping for an energetic description of Phuti and Grace's actual wedding will be disappointed.

Another winner in The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series. This one features a complex case with a complicated man and his farm, and a happy re-union for Precious and her beloved white van, and ends with a beautiful wedding.

Life is hard in Botswana as it is everywhere, but with Mma Ramotswe and Rra Matekoni as role models of kindness, patience and love, and their ability and willingness to help others, their piece of Africa is a good place to be.

The imperfect Grace and Charlie add a touch of realism and a whole lot of humor to the series.

This was a wonderful book, perhaps even the best of the series. I am so glad that the public library had this on display and I recommend it highly everyone. ( )

Nothing very mysterious here, of course, but the solution to the problem of those dead cattle is wonderfully inconclusive, and you’ll never get through the wedding with dry eyes.

Mma Ramotswe had by no means forgotten her late white van.

Taking her old shoes out of the box into which Paticia had tucked them, she slipped them back on her feet and continued on her way to the Tlokweng Road. One or two people had witnessed the tragedy, or at least had seen part of it: a young man passing by, a boy on a bicycle, an old man standing in the shade of a tree. But they had only seen a woman racing after a white van and then stumbling; they had seen her bend down and change her footwear before walking off towards the main road. So might we fail to see the real sadness that lies behind the acts of others; so might we look at one of our fellow men going about his business and not know of the sorrow that he is feeling, the effort that he is making, the things he has lost.
Such men who put women down were really rather weak themselves, building themselves up by belittling women. A truly strong man would never want that.
[S]he wanted to leave the house; she wanted to be away from this silly young woman with her casual ways and her utter indifference. How could anybody be so bored with life, she wondered, when all about one there were all these things happening?
The old days: people sometimes laughed at those who talked about the old days, but Mma Ramotswe was not one of them. She knew that all of us, even the youngest, had some old days to remember. Children of ten remember how it was when they were five, just as men and women of fifty remember the way things were when they were twenty; and if those distant pasts are coated with sweetness and longing, then that might be because people indeed felt happier then.
The old van, of course, was slower than the new one , but that did not bother Mma Ramotswe in the slightest; she was not the sort of detective - or person, indeed - who needed to get anywhere fast. In her experience, the places one set off for were usually still there no matter when one arrived; it would be different, naturally enough, if towns, villages, houses moved - then one might have a real reason to hurry - but they did not.
