very nice book
Quite a surprise an 11 year old sleuth .. wise beyond her years young lady,Flavia. Fun interaction among siblings and mysterious death all the right things for an interesting visit to England with a reader that lets you see the story.
The story is hard to get into at first, but picks up after the first few chapters.
The series and the book are delightful. Ms. Entwhistle's narrative was captivating, everything it should have been. She has an exquisite speaking voice with incredible range. I felt as if I were zipping along the lanes of an English countryside, with my best friend Flavia on her Gladys, me on my Bitsy! Look Flavia, no hands!
I loved this book. It was the first I have heard by Bradley. The choice of narrators was perfect, her accent and voice brought his heroine, Flavia, alive. She is a fantastically loveable character. Smart, funny, brave and sincere, riding her bicycle around town solving the crime. Very fun. Add in a crumbling family estate, need I say more? It took me a full CD to fall into the rhythm, but after that I was hooked. More please.
I can't rate the book it self, because I could not get past the voice of the reader, which is very irritating to me. I quit listening about an hour into the book. I wish I could get a refund. I will write the readers name down and never listen to her again. It was torture, trust me.
I liked this book. Flavia de Luce is entertaining, a bit devilish, and certainly not a typical 11 year old. The narrator, Jayne Erstwhile (?sic) was wonderful. Not for kids, has some dark touches.
Imagine Eloise at the Plaza as a detective - not my cup of tea, but some may enjoy it.
