The book Morality for beautiful girls by; Alexander McCall Smith, set in Botswana, Africa. Evolves around the lie of a “traditional” woman-Mma. Ramotswe, Daughter of a prominent Botswana elder (now deceased),
Mma. Ramotswe was engaged to be married to a businessman and a fine specimen of a man, her 2nd after the 1st to a playboy musician had gone bad. But times had changed, and for the educated women who wanted to make something of their lives, it was undoubtedly better for both spouse to have something to do.
Mma. Ramotswe. Is a big woman with a big heart which has her oft times biting off a little more than she should. Now living in a fast changing Botswanian society, sees subtle disconnects in behavioral patterns.
Mma. Ramotswe’s Detective agency was growing, her reputation has now reach even to the halls of power in Botswana and this lands her the kinds of jobs she has long dreamt of and more. Will all this change Mma. Ramotswe? Read the story and find out for yourself
My analysis; here is my overall analysis of the book: To begin, I found it very difficult to read at the start, being a person with western tongue, getting to some of the words and terms used by the writer was very hard for me, I had to translate some words/terms into what I thought they might mean in our vernaculars and in so doing I found the story began to flow seamlessly and then? And then a beautiful story started to unfold before my eyes. Well written, supported, presented and like any good writer, he leaves us wanting more.
