    Haven’t read the books yet – but from what I know of them, this is a great interpretation! And I just plain love the colors – and Mr. Giraffe!!

    The books are wonderful as is the HBO series. They really capture the beauty and culture of that part of Africa.

    I just checked out the HBO site… They have previews and recaps of the show, but not complete videos :( It looks like a great show!!

    Jane, when I saw this Pick I knew which series you’re referring to – the book series! I didn’t know there is an HBO series, I adore the books because of their gentle low key tone and the main character of Mama Ramotswe,her husband and the other people in Botswana – such a lovely contrast to our much more fast paced life here… that giraffe is perfect with the botswanas you have in the Pick!!!! :)

    Thanks. I really love Africa. Alexander McCall Smith captures the atmosphere perfectly.

    He does, doesn’t he, Jane? It’s amazing, because I understand he also writes another series of books that take place in Scotland and are also very authentic.

    I know what you mean, Joyce, about the low key tone of the series in Botswana. I love the way she solves the mysteries, too!!! Always so clever! :-)

    I love that the books also have a sense of humor. Mr. J.L.B. Matakoni’s assistants are always good for a laugh.

    Yes, I can’t help but laugh out loud sometimes! :D
