Speaking from Among the Bones (2012)
language
English

review 1: Love it and I knew they would find Harriet, I just knew it, now if they have found her alive or dead, that is the question. I was laughing out loud within 5 mins and my kids were laughing at me. My husband likes to just watch me read because I have a perpetual smile on myself. Do...

review 1: Alan Bradley has created one of the most unique detectives in the entire mystery genre with eleven year old Flavia de Luce. Set in a crumbling English manor home, Flavia continues to outwit her two older sisters and find co-conspirators with the most interesting members of the l...
The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag (2010)

review 1: I hardly know what to say about this book - the second in the Flavia series. First I still have no idea what the title has to do with the story. I am unsettled by an eleven-year-old heroine with homicidal tendencies and a lack of ability to tell the truth. I am disturbed by two o...

review 1: A great fun read with the fascinating Flavia. Her character is so well-developed and original. I love the dynamic with her two sisters. The humour in the book is low-key and dry (in a less is more kind of way), that is perfectly in keeping with the story. The combination of Flavi...
A Red Herring Without Mustard (2011)

English

review 1: Flavia de Luce mi sta proprio simpatica. Ficcanaso, viziata, vive in una magione circondata da ettari di terreno nelle campagne inglesi, avrebbe tutti i motivi per fare la smorfiosa e invece si caccia sempre nei guai nel tentativo - riuscito, ovvio - di risolvere dei delitti. Fla...
I Am Half-Sick of Shadows (2011)
language
English
4.07 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: You'd think that by now, I'd be sick (and not just "half-sick") of Flavia de Luce and her improbably twee adventures in solving murder mysteries in a tiny 1950s English hamlet. But Flavia, her sisters, and the rest of the residents of Bishop's Lacey are just so much fun to visit...

review 1: This is the first Flavia book that I sat down and read. The first 4 entertained me while on extended road trips. They were perfect for that purpose, entertaining and requiring some thought, while not being so deep that I was distracted from my driving.Now I have actually held o...
The Curious Case of the Copper Corpse (2014)
language
English
4.03 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: This was a rather short story. It takes advantage of the fact that most people are already going to be familiar with Flavia and her surroundings and gets right to the point. It was interesting that Flavia's reputation has led her to be consulted in a murder mystery, and the murde...

review 2: Delightful. Hard to imagine such a brilliant young girl, but who am I to question?

review 1: Delightful heroine!.
review 2: I didn't like this as well as the others I've read. Still, I know I'll eventually read them all.

review 1: Flavia de Luce is back for a fourth adventure. This time, it's nearly Christmas, and Flavia's determined to trap Father Christmas on one of the chimneys of Buckshaw using her own super-sticky formulation of birdlime. She's also fascinated by the arrival of a film crew from London...

English

review 1: Oh, my, this Flavia DeLuce is a smart kid. Flavia is now twelve years old and is sent from her home in England to Canada to boarding school. The reasons are a big mystery that I don’t think are ever really addressed. We only know Flavia’s mother and aunt were students at this...
The Shoebox Bible (2006)
language
English

review 1: "Some children are born seeking God outside themselves, and it is a lifelong quest, but one that can never be fulfilled, so that they are often left, in the end, sitting among the remnants of the things they have accumulated, and love is not one of them. Yet other children - born...
