really liked it
Read from August 16 to 17, 2011

Mystery is not my favorite genre of literature, so it takes a really delicious mystery to whet my appetite. The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie appealed to me because young Flavia de Luce is such a wonderfully intelligent and unique individual. Her infatuation with chemistry, especially her dark interest in poisons, and her anger at being looked down upon for either her gender or her age, made me just love her character. Those who love the mystery genre may well award five stars to this book.

Alan Bradley
“As I stood outside in Cow Lane, it occurred to me that Heaven must be a place where the library is open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

No ... eight days a week.”
