The Beginning and The End Series: The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency Alexander McCall Smith

I'm a voracious reader and one of things that I try to do is to read at least one book every week whether it's a new story or something that I've already read before.

When choosing a book to read, I like reading either the first few lines of the book or even the last few lines. It helps me figure out if the book would be interesting enough.

In this series, I'll be bringing to you some of the books that I've enjoyed reading.

Hopefully, these would help some of you discover the reading bug whether you use an ebook or still prefer the print version, it doesn't matter. 

Let's make a difference and start a reading revolution.

I've learned a lot from reading and I'd like to share this passion to everyone.

Please beware about possible spoilers if you read The End part.


Book Title: The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency
Author: Alexander McCall Smith

The Beginning: 

Mma Ramotswe had a detective agency in Africa, at the foot of Kgale hill. These were its assets: a tiny white van, two desks, two chairs, a telephone, and an old typewriter. Then there was a teapot, in which Mma Ramotswe--- the only lady detective in Botswana--- brewed redbush tea.



The End:

"I said, please marry me, Mma Ramoswe. I am just Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni, that's all, but please marry me and make me happy."

"Of course I will," said Mma Ramotswe.
