    1. Flavia de Luce is the 11 year old that you want to be a parent, because she is brilliant, original, and kind - and the one that you fear giving birth to because her favorite activity is concocting poisons in her very well-equipped laboratory. She also seems to have quite a knack for being in the location of unusual murders and for solving them, to the chagrin of the local police.I loved these books. The first one is a little weaker than the others, but together they've been a very pleasant escap [...]


    2. The fourth book in the Flavia de Luce series. These are just delightful books that anyone can enjoy. Bradley's descriptions and dialogue are right on. They are slightly improbable because it is written from the viewpoint of a precocious 11 year old who loves chemistry. But, I like them and I find myself reading them fast because they are so entertaining.


    3. You will fall in love with Flavia! Bradley's novels about a young, chemistry obsessed detective in rural 1950s England are fabulous. The mysteries are smart and the family dynamics intriguing. Each of the five novels are great reads, my favorite is the second. The weed that strings the hangman a bag.


    4. Flavia is a geeky chemist and private eye. She's got a very scientific view of the world, and may not be the greatest people person around. But hey, she's only eleven! Love this series, its characters and setting in rural England in the 1950s.


    5. Flavia de Luce is a wonderful character who charmed me with her intelligence and insecurities. Written for young adults, I'd recommend Bradley's series to anyone who enjoys mysteries and insight into human character.


    6. The entire series is 5-star for wit, voice, and character development. It is fairly light reading. Very well written. Mr Bradley has somehow gotten the point of view of a 12 year old girl spot-on!There are two more books in this series.


    7. I love these books about a girl science geek who solves mysteries and deals head on with stuck up sisters, a preoccupied, penniless father and the local authorities with whom she enjoys a love-hate relationship.


    8. Flavia comes to life under Bradley's writing. The books are witty, charming small town mysteries solved by a pre teen girl.


    9. Fascinating, Engaging & Charming! A Page-Turning, Delicious, Delightful, Different Kind Of Twist! I Loved It!!!


    10. I've sort of gotten hooked on this series. Part of the reason might be the cool English accent on the audio tapes.







    11. I just enjoyed these easy reading stories of this high spirited girl living in the 1950s. I read the large print additions.
