In the life of Mma Ramotswe--a woman duly proud of her fine traditional build--there is rarely a dull moment, and in her newest round of adventures, challenges and intrigues, the same certainly holds true. But one thing above all else is keeping her occupied--her estimable husband, Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni. He has been hinting for some time now that he intends to do something special for their adopted daughter, Motholeli, and it seems that the time for this good deed has come. Of course, good deed or not, his plan is bound to hit some snags. And that's when he will undoubtedly consider himself doubly--perhaps even triply--lucky to be married to the ever-resoueceful, ever-understanding Precious Ramotswe.

Years ago I had tried to read The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency and I just couldn't get through it....recently someone said I should try the audio book because the reader is excellent. I do agree she is a good reader, however this book was full of incompetent people. I almost stopped at Disc 6....UGH!! Also, the formality of calling your husband Mr JLB M....whatever his name is....yikes!! Hard on my ears.

I loved the DVD series by this author! This Audio was really disappointing due to the voice! The voice is really difficult to listen to, very annoying!

Another delightful episode in the life of Mma Ramotswe and her No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency! I thought this one was particularly sweet.

The good husband of Zebra Drive refers, of course, to Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni. He is such a good man! The things all these ladies in his life ask of him, and he never complains. There's Mma Ramotswe, who moved her detective agency into his garage. And her assistant, Mma Makutse, who orders around his apprentices and even occasionally tells him how to run the garage as well. And Mma Potakwame, who runs the orphan farm and who is constantly having him come do (pro bono) mechanical work. Now, in Book 8, he's taking a turn having the adventure! He's going to solve a case for Mma Ramotswe. What fun!

Mma Ramotswe is on a case of her own, too. She's been asked to investigate at a local hospital, where the patients in a particular bed have all died at about the same time on consecutive Fridays. Yes, people die in hospitals. But the same bed? Same time? Three weeks in a row? Seems suspicious to the hospital administrator. This case is a bit sensitive, since it deals with very ill/dying patients in a hospital, and the mercy/grace that Mma Ramotswe exhibits is quite touching.

I'd say The Good Husband of Zebra Drive is one of the top books in the series so far!

The narration: same narrator as the previous seven books, so nothing new to say. Lovely lilting accent, pretty decent pacing.
