No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency Series Book #1 (Audiobook)

Alexander McCall Smith

Mma "Precious" Ramotswe is a character I'd heard of, but never knew much about until a few summers ago when I checked out the audiobook of  first book in Alexander McCall Smith's No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series.



What's really wonderful about this audiobook besides Alexander McCall Smith's sweet storytelling is narrator Lisette Lecat's voice. The South African-born Lecat navigates the Botswana landscape capturing the rhythms and lyrical sound of Mma Ramotswe's voice and the rich language of the country.



My son and I enjoyed listening to this CD during leisurely breakfasts a few years ago. With the summer heat and Lecat's voice it was like being on safari.
