The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency: Chapters 7-9 June 16, 2007

Posted by Han in The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Sm.

Sorry gals I still have not caught up yet. (baby any day now) so feel free to discuss what you want. I am going to go ahead and post several chapters so you can all keep going regardless of what happens to me in the next few days.

As Mma Ramotswe wonders if Mma Malatsi was somehow involved in her husband’s death and whether wanting someone dead made one a murderer in God’s eyes, she thinks to herself: “It was time to take the pumpkin out of the pot and eat it. In the final analysis, that was what solved these big problems of life. You could think and think and get nowhere, but you still had to eat your pumpkin. That brought you down to earth. That gave you a reason for going on. Pumpkin” [p. 85]. What philosophy of life is Mma Ramotswe articulating here? Why do the ongoing daily events of life give her this sense of peace and stability?

What did you all think of the “Boyfriend” case and how it was wrapped up and the final follow up?  Did you see it coming?
