Have loved, loved, loved the Bloody Jack series. Beware with #8, though, if you are providing the books to young adult readers, as the content/tone in this one has jumped, in my opinion, from what I would consider young-adult material in books 1-7 to adult material here. Much more overt presentation of bawdiness, violence, cruelty, victimization. A surprising and not particularly welcome turn.
Yes. Have already listened twice through. Flavia is a beguiling character and Entwistle is her perfect voice.
These stories are really just a framework, for me, for hanging out with Flavia (and Dogger). So, yes, her antics keep me fully engaged from start to finish, and wanting more when the story ends.
Her inflections in Flavia's dialogues (internal and external) really bring to life the richness and depth of a precocious child's inner and outer world. As I said above, the voice is perfect.
Yes. And did. And will again.
It is agony to wait for the next installment.
