Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I love these books. Flavia is a unique amateur detective. She is frighteningly intelligent, unstoppable, funny and yet vulnerable. Why can't I find all the books in the series on audible? Even some I have don't seem available now. There is a new one due out in September 2016. Why can't I find it to pre order on audible? Is it because there is a film coming out?
What did you like best about this story?
The main character , the setting, the humour and unusual plot. Enjoyed all the books in the series so far.
What about Sophie Aldred’s performance did you like?
She captured the character beautifully.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
More Flavia de Luce please! Bravo Alan Bradley. These books are both funny and dark with a wonderful heroine. I love Flavia.
As this book had many good reviews I continued to listen rather than giving up after a couple of chapters. I did manage to put my initial dislike of the narrator's style behind me as I realised she sounds prissy because she is telling the story on behalf of a prissy girl. The unveiling of the murderer all happens very quickly and with little explanation as to how the police find out. Not great and I shan't be downloading any more.

I have very much enjoyed this series and characters within but this storyline was odd, jarring and quite unbelievable. A stepping stone for a new direction, it was badly conceived and most unlike the other books in tone and humour and its conclusion was most unsatisfactory. Flavia as detective no more. A very awkward transition.
