Thrice the Brinded Cat Hath Mew’d - Bradley
Audio performance by Jayne Entwistle
3 stars

Poor Flavia. I think I’m done with her. There’s been one corpse too many and the thrill is gone. Not that thrills were ever an important part of my enjoyment of this series. It was the humor; the outrageous, exaggerated antics of Flavia Deluce, girl genius, chemist and detective. It just wasn’t working for me this time. Too much tragedy, not enough levity and a very weak mystery plot. A generous 3 stars, for old times sake.

Ladyslott | 1880 comments I have the audio, so I will listen to it. The book reviews here are generally positive so I hope I enjoy it more than you did.

It didn't hold my attention. Maybe it was just bad timing for me.

It's from Macbeth - the opening scene to The Witches
