In Botswana Academy of PDFEPUB #196 Precious's assistant detective Grace's new husband Phuti suggests Academy name to Clovis A Although I finished this book in about a day I've been stuck on this review for weeks Could it be that I've moved on from the series Could it be that McCall Smith is starting to repeat himself Has he lost his magicYes yes and yes along with the added discomfort of lingering weirdness for reading a book written by an old Scottish white dude about a middle aged African woman from Botswana There's just something that smacks of being interpreted and romanticized by the Other that doesn't set well with me Add story fatigue and I find myself pulling awayThe Limpopo Academy begins with Precious having a dream Attempting to share the experience with Grace Makutsi she is interrupted by Grace's pedantic interpretation and unable to convey the portentous feeling she has It segues to tea time interrupted by Mma Potokwane the Orphan Matron She is enlisting help in her struggle with Mr Ditso Ditso who has convinced the orphan board to build a formal dining hall for the orphans with the grant money they've recently received Shortly after Grace leaves to meet with her husband and the builder they are hiring Meanwhile Fanwell one of the mechanic's helpers gets in trouble for taking a side job and experiences an inept legal systemLimpopo goes on to distinguish itself from its predecessors when Mma Ramotswe's mythic detective Clovis Andersen arrives on scene It creates a wink nudge reaction for the reader who can see the detective is not famous or even particularly clever despite the admiring gaze of the women of the Ladies' Detective AgencyIn retrospect the subtext in the detective's incompetence plot is insulting Yes it tries to be gently funny but in the end all it serves to do is show how wisdom comes out of naive faith uneducated natives Ugh Now I'm really annoyedDr Siri has spoiled me The Coroner's Lunch when it comes to genre bending detective fiction Cotterill as Siri's creator contextualizes the story in regional and national political events and if Dr Siri occasionally is bitter it is because it comes out of disappointed love and early participation in the emancipation of his country In McCall Smith's Botswana however very little is given context or reality base if it wasn't for the rare one line reference it would be difficult to historically place the series The Precious tales take on folk tale proportions and I feel like Africans deserve than another veiled Anansi story McCall Smith should be starting to challenge the readers with information and context not less Instead of the 'talking shoes' of Grace and Precious' endless repetitive admiration for her father perhaps we should know about how the explosion of cattle farming is ruining the eco system and the land plus long term father worship is a little creepy when it doesn't come with any other family or venerated ancestor framing Grace selecting building materials for a house hints at the economic explosion in one of the stable African nations but we don't get that context and indeed view spoiler it only serves to highlight corruption hide spoiler
