Tears of the Giraffe [#books #review]

by Alexander McCall Smith

Book #2 of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency.

A really beautiful novel, which involved me from the first page to the last. As a mystery novel is not the kind I prefer, because the investigation is in the background and there isn't a real discovery of the culprit, but otherwise I loved it: the characters, the side stories, the feelings, and especially the setting: it was a perfect choice for my intent to discover a bit od Africa because it showed us in all its aspects this part of this continent that the author and the protagonist like so much: Botswana. Needless to say, now I want to read all the books in this series! :)
