Sitting down to read Alan Bradley's Flavia de Luce series seemed like a luxury the reviewer didn't have time for until the reviewer started listening to these stories in various audio formats.
The reviewer started with the CD talking book The Weed that Strings the Hangman's Bag and enjoyed their first listening encounter with 11-year-old Flavia de Luce and found themselves laughing out loud to her antics.
The reviewer followed that book with Bradley's Speaking from among the Bones on a Playaway device and then downloaded the book, A Red Herring Without Mustard, to their iPad from eLibraries Manitoba.
The Flavia de Luce mysteries are extremely entertaining and the narrator, Jayne Entwhistle, captures Flavia's British charm perfectly. There are two more books of Alan Bradley's Flavia de Luce series and the reviewer can hardly wait to hear what escapades this young sleuth will encounter next.
The reviewer thinks this series is well worth the read (or listen). If you are a fan of a engaging mysteries you should grab this book at your local branch.
