Originally reviewed at Jayne's Books.

I really enjoyed this read and considering that I have been reading some pretty dense books and that this has been on my shelves for almost three and a half years, I was glad for the break. I also listened to the audio as I read the book and felt that the reader who narrated the book did a really good job. I like how Flavia was a pretty typical 11-year old, except that she really isn't a typical 11-year old. I love the quirkiness that is Flavia and how she fi

Oh, Flavia. I really did love her and will probably read more of her adventures. However, I was disinterested in the plot of the story by the end. Her ingenious ability to play chemist and solve clues was entertaining, just couldn't stay interested in the mystery. Probably would give it 3 1/2 stars, if I was able.

I listened to this novel as an audiobook and thoroughly enjoyed it! Flavia is hysterical and ingenious, her machinations brilliant, and yet she strikes me as a real character. The knowledge she possesses, particularly as applies to chemistry, is somewhat unbelievable for an 11 year old but I found it more endearing than annoying. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys murder mysteries solved by spunky characters.

In my ongoing attempt to finish as few books as possible in 2014, here's another one I just lost interest in. I found Flavia an interesting character, but the mystery wasn't mysterious enough to keep me interested in reading another 200 pages.
