The storyline, with the intelligence of this 11-year-old including her vocabulary and deductive skills are extremely far-fetched
Flavia is an 11 year old girl who is smart, witty and inventive beyond her years in delightful ways. Written very descriptively and suitable for adults and teens alike of any gender.
Flavia is Precious, funny and fascinating. The descriptive language bringsn such vivid pictures to help imagining the characters and the story. The author leads you on a step-by-step path of discovery as the story builds towards its conclusion. It was a fun a d enjoyable read.
Enjoyed the author's use of $5 words. Good storytelling. Lovely descriptions. Excellent narrator.
Not sure I will read more of the series since it's YA. But so glad I read the book.
As one reviewer asked: Could there be a more perfect match up between the reader and the main character? Absolutely not! Both are charming, witty and oh-so-smart! Jayne Entwistle enjoys herself so much in this reading that she'll pull you in with her from the first word until the last! And if you're ever having a bad day, just give yourself a few minutes with Flavia - this little whippersnapper will have you chuckling and on your merry way once again. :)
All mysteries all the time, that's what I read. I joined Audible when I started having a long commute. Now I listen everywhere!
This would be a great book to listen to on a family car trip!
Flavian is really enjoyable, I might have to purchase and listen to the next one right away.
The young female protagonist is an ever delightful brainy want to be chemist. She moves around by a an aptly named bicycle on her way to solve the crime.
