Community Quote

... The actual detective cases are never the main part of the book and the two cases Mma Ramotswe 'investigates' (I use the word in its loosest form) in the book include following someone's husband whom she suspects of having an affair and helping a man to make some apologies for wrongdoing ...

Advantages Gentle, charming reading

Disadvantages Not a lot actually happens

"This is the fourth installment in the popular No 1 Ladies Detective Agency Series. I don't feel it is essential to have read the previous books as there are no real plot spoilers, any background knowledge you need into the characters is provided briefly and succinctly whenever necessary. We again meet our heroine Mma Precious Ramotswe the proprietor on the No 1 Ladies Detective Agency, her assistant Mma Makutsi, and fiancé Mr J L B Matekoni of Tlokweng ..." Read review

Let Mma Teach You Some More Lessons!

AdvantagesEntertaining, interesting, well-written

DisadvantagesNot as much going on as I'd have liked

"The Kalahari Typing School For Men is the fourth novel in the popular No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency series and the second I've read (after the first in the series). The most immediate advantage was that it recapped events in the previous books without giving away too much (important if, like me, you missed out some) or droning on and on, which would be boring for people who have read all the books in order. Mma Ramotswe is engaged to Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni, ..." Read review

A Day In The Life Of Ma Ramostwe

Advantages Light Hearted Easy Read

Disadvantages You will want to buy the whole series!!!

"The series of the No 1 ladies detective agency makes for a brilliant read, I by chance read the first in the series and was hooked, I have now read the Kalahari typing school as well as The No One Ladies Detective Agency. Tears Of The Giraffe and Morality For Beautiful Girls and none have disappointed. I have The Full Cupboard Of Life, and Blue Shoes And Happiness still to read. If you want a book that's light hearted then this is for you, I would ..." Read review

The Kalahari Typing School For Men

AdvantagesRiveting read from front to back

DisadvantagesIt's not longer!

"This is the fourth book in the No.1 Ladies Decetive Agency Series and doesn't disappoint. It carries on the story of Mma Ramotswe's life in the same beautifully descriptive style as the previous books. There are, as usual, some great stories within to keep you entertaining and guessing. We also get a deeper insight into the background of Mma Makutsi and apprentices. McCall Smith doesn't disappoint with this one, his descriptive writing style ..." Read review
