  • Answers lead to more questions

    Alan Bradley hasonce again left us wanting more! Although this latest edition from Flavia answers questions we have asking from the start, we now have more questions. Another excellant tale with more emotion than before. Harriet has come home. Everyone is in termoil for their own perculur reasons. I really enjoyed Flavia's observaions of grief. At 12 she is not such a child but not yet an adult. It is the perfect time to be an observer and paricipant. I'm looking forward to more Flavia stories. Keep them coming!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Where did the story go

    There was a time when each 'Flavia' story was a complete entity and could stand on its own. The tale would proceed toward a logical, and sometimes surprising conclusion. Not so this time. The story has laborious descriptions of the many characters who come and go - but nothing much happens. Eventually we find out that Flavia's family are the core of the British secret service and that her mother was murdered 'On the job' in Thibet, and to complete her training, Flavia will be sent to finishing school in Canada. And thats about it. The book can only be seen as a 'stepping stone' - in an ongoing series - where the next story focuses on Flavia's adventures at school in Canada. A transition was needed, and this book waxit.

    Thanks for your feedback!
