Smith, Alexander McCall: The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency

This is the first of a very well-received series which I felt I should try. I have not, however, finished the book but have given up somewhere over halfway. The book is well written with some sentences describing the environment bordering on the poetic and there is a humourous undertone. Unfortunately, the overall effect is one of tweeness which I am sure is not the
intent - and from the reviews quoted, something that I may be alone in finding.
