Humour is so individual A review I read said If you like Mma Ramotswe you will hate Professor Moritz Maria von Igelfeld Well sorry I love the Ladies Detective Agency series but I also enjoy this series I admire Mma R s independence good sense and humanity but I also have a sympathy for poor Igelfeld s bruised self esteem and need for constant recognition although in one of these stories he seems to discover another side to himself and his need for recognition and respect My son laughs uproariously at The Office series on TV whereas they leave me not only unmoved by laughter but also irritated so that I leave the room My husband feels similarly about this series I think and certainly is not tickled by their gentle humour as I am There is something very German very old fashioned and very human in this character He would never be my friend in life but I have a sympathy for him and find his tales interesting and amusing This is an easy book to read and a slim volume with nicely crafted chapters easily digested
