The story I predict is cute, as I have read all the others. The narrator's voice was too high pitched and squeaky.
I couldn't listen to it.
I've read several Flavia de Luce novels, but I think they work better as audio. This one was grand fun with a very surprising ending or, perhaps I should say endings. Bradley does a fine job of capturing the very precious Flavia, and several times I laughed out loud.
Flavia de Luce is simply irresistible and I think that this may be my favorite of the series. She is at her 11 year old scientific best solving a complex mystery of her church organist's murder. My one complaint about the book is that it ends with a cliff hanger that will have me waiting on the edge of my seat until Mr. Bradley can write the next book. I hope he's hard at work.
Yes, she is fun and the twists are great. My 13 year old loves this series too.
Some of her others are slightly better, but this one is very good. I can't image the little girl with anyone else's voice and she captures her mischievousness very well.
the very end! I can't wait for the next one.
I love the science that is added to this series. Not too much but fun. My 13 year old daughter loves it and likes how a girl can be smart but not at the expense of others.
This ranks among the best audio books. The reader captures the main character Flavia so well I cannot imagine Flavia with any other voice.
Flavia De Luce by far.
She captures the voice of an intelligent young girl with believability, respect, including the fun, the brillance, and the perspective of a child.
No sin is safe from Flavia de Luce.
The Flavia de Luce books are WONDERFUL. Her insights are great and her family's reactions (or non-reactions) are perfect. I've listened to 4 and read one.
The Vicar's wife Cynthia's reaction to Flavia emerging, filthy, from the tunnel.
All the books are great. She's perfect as Flavia - and all the other characters.
Funny, Quaint and Exciting
I enjoyed wondering what the Fathers role would be in the end.
This was my first Jayne Entwistle book, but i look forward to listening to more.
It made me laugh over and over. Ioved how she related to me.
The narator was very good and a joy to listen to.
This is a unique series with great characters, especially Flavia.
This young girl is a master chemist and adventurer. She solve very complicated crimes in unique ways. Surprise ending with this one!
Flavia inside the organ chamber with the bad guys.
I smiled through most of the book, laughed in a few places.
I sincerely hope the author hurries up with the next book after this ending!
Flavia de Luce is one of my all-time-favorite characters. She has matured since the last book, but has retained the qualities that make her such a joy to follow. Jayne Entwistle reflects this new maturity in her narration. PLEASE - as in the case of the Agatha Raisin novels, don't change narrators!
I won't give anything away - I'll just say that once again there are lots of things to think about, twists, turns and an ending that will both keep you on the edge of your seat and make you feel like you have to lay down - at the same time.
I love this series. I love the narrator. When I read the books I have the narrator's voices in my "mind's ear."
I can't wait for the next book!
Yes. It was a fun read with all the characters in place. It is wonderful to read this series and watch Flavia grow up.
I wouldn't say edge of my seat, but I really wasn't sure who did it until the end.
Flavia of course.
The ending was stunning. Can't wait until the next one comes out.
Hurry Hurry Hurry Mr. Bradley - don't keep us waiting too long for the next one.
