As I’ve said before, I listen to quite a few audio books, and with those, if I don’t also have access to the text, I often find it hard to write a proper review. I’ve decided to just briefly “mention” some of them now and then under the heading Recently Read.
I recently listened to two by Alexander McCall Smith – one after the other – in Swedish translation:
The Saturday Big Tent Wedding Party is No 12 in the No 1 Ladies Detective Agency/Mma Ramotswe series.
The Comfort of Saturdays is No 5 in the Sunday Philosophy Club/Isabel Dalhousie series.
I have to say, I much prefer the Mma Ramotswe series, set in Botswana. There is a combination of simplicity and humour in that series that appeals to me; while (harshly put) Isabel Dalhousie tends to alternately annoy vs bore me. (So why did I listen to another book in that series? Answer: Because I had forgotten almost everything from the previous ones…)
