Andrew McCall Smith - The Big Tent Wedding Party: Another in the charming series, this time with a hint of the supernatural (sorta). #cursorybookreviews #cursoryreviews ( )

Delightful...as always. ( )

I have never had a car I loved as much as Mma Ramotswe loves the tiny white van. But I have had objects that were dear to me and that I looked out for years after they were gone. I liked Charlie's plotline through this installment.
I thought this was the end of the series, a round dozen books. But I see now that there are more. Which is good because there is still more February to get through. ( )

The plot is secondary for this series of books, after all, it is almost the same. What I like is Ramotswe's musings about life, which is all so true. And in this book, Ramotswe was worrying about 3 things - Charlie and his troubles with his ex-girlfriend and her new-born twins, handling Mpho's confession of his crime and what to tell her client, and getting back her old van. In the end, it turned out that those twins aren't Charlie's; Ramotswe didn't have to tell her client about Mpho's confession because he turned up with a new lead (and one thing led to another); and Charlie told Matekoni about Ramotswe's desire to get her old van back, leading to Matekoni buying back the van for her. Though fictional, it quite mirrors life - we shouldn't worry so much about things, sometimes they resolve on their own. One more thing I learned from Ramotswe - if you have requests to ask of others, always say positive things about them. Or ask direct, depending on the situation. ( )

Nothing very mysterious here, of course, but the solution to the problem of those dead cattle is wonderfully inconclusive, and you’ll never get through the wedding with dry eyes.

Mma Ramotswe had by no means forgotten her late white van.

Taking her old shoes out of the box into which Paticia had tucked them, she slipped them back on her feet and continued on her way to the Tlokweng Road. One or two people had witnessed the tragedy, or at least had seen part of it: a young man passing by, a boy on a bicycle, an old man standing in the shade of a tree. But they had only seen a woman racing after a white van and then stumbling; they had seen her bend down and change her footwear before walking off towards the main road. So might we fail to see the real sadness that lies behind the acts of others; so might we look at one of our fellow men going about his business and not know of the sorrow that he is feeling, the effort that he is making, the things he has lost.
Such men who put women down were really rather weak themselves, building themselves up by belittling women. A truly strong man would never want that.
[S]he wanted to leave the house; she wanted to be away from this silly young woman with her casual ways and her utter indifference. How could anybody be so bored with life, she wondered, when all about one there were all these things happening?
The old days: people sometimes laughed at those who talked about the old days, but Mma Ramotswe was not one of them. She knew that all of us, even the youngest, had some old days to remember. Children of ten remember how it was when they were five, just as men and women of fifty remember the way things were when they were twenty; and if those distant pasts are coated with sweetness and longing, then that might be because people indeed felt happier then.
The old van, of course, was slower than the new one , but that did not bother Mma Ramotswe in the slightest; she was not the sort of detective - or person, indeed - who needed to get anywhere fast. In her experience, the places one set off for were usually still there no matter when one arrived; it would be different, naturally enough, if towns, villages, houses moved - then one might have a real reason to hurry - but they did not.
