Can't wait!! I love all the books! I visited northern Botswana last Fall, and asked several people I met, such as shop clerks, game guides and fellow customers in stores, if they were familiar with the books. Most said they were and that they had seen the movie on TV. They thought it was a good representation of Botswana - even though it depicts life in Harare and not the northern areas.

Jill Scott will be the perfect Precious. I can't wait to see Mma Ramotswe off my Kindle, and on the LG! This will replace MONK.

I have read all the books, and this show is CRAZY good! All that I imagined, and more. Scott is fantabulous as Precious, and the secretary Rose is hilarious. All true to the books, except for the gay hairdresser, not in the book I don't think? But every show must have a homosexual in it nowadays, so ok. I'm watching or DVRing this show for the duration. Lovely, it is!

A refreshing new series, I can see this as an award winning show. Everything else has been done before. Let them try and copy this
