  • Excellent casting and realization

    This marvelous HBO miniseries faithfully captures the atmosphere and charm of these beloved mysteries. My family read the books after enjoying this series so much, and while some parts of the books are moved around (the excellent first book, in particular, since so many strong dramatic developments are packed into it), the feeling of the stories and the characters is fully preserved. The charm and beauty of Precious Ramotswe, the prickly efficiency of Mma Makutsi, and the solid goodness of Mr. J. L. B. Matakone are very well-realized here. I so wish a second series had been made, but this production was a labor of love for director/producer Anthony Minghella, and he passed away shortly after its completion. The warmth with which he regarded this effort suffuses the entire production.

    After reading the books, the television series was excellent. I really, really enjoyed the dvd collection.

  • Love this series!

    I read the series of books by Alexander McCall Smith. So also did my husband and many of our friends after I raved about how enjoyable the story was and how well it was written. I was shopping the "O" and didn't even know that a series had been made (HBO). I ordered the DVDs and we were thrilled when we watched. It was like being right there in Africa. The only disappointment was that there wasn't more! We have loaned these DVDs out a dozen times and even people who had not read the books could follow the story and loved the filming! Several people, ourselves included, have watched many times. It's like going on vacation and visiting an old friend in a faraway place!

  • Ladies #1

    I had read all of the books about the 31 Ladies Detective Agency and enjoyed every one. Watching the stories on HBO was such a joyful experience. Most of the time, the book is better than the film, but not true on this one . You will want to watch this one over and over.
