This book is a good old fashioned mystery. Some might think it's simple (no CSI or forensics), but its a nice alternative when you don't want to think too hard about the "investigation". Just enjoy a house full of people who all want to kill the victim.
I'm sure the books are fun to read, but what really makes it for me is Jayne Entwistle. No one else could "voice" Flavia so perfectly. Not inseparable from reality (I mean a child who is an expert in chemistry and poisons?), but who cares. The story goes on to make me feel like I'm running around solving mysteries with her and her rickety bike (I wonder if Gladys could carry us both?). Read the books, or better yet, listen to them.
