Ah, Flavia, Flavia! I loved the book as much as I loved the main character's name! This was the first book that I have read by Alan Bradley and I am hooked. I am amazed that a man can write from a little girl's perspective so well. But,his writing was dead on target. Ths book had enough twists and turns in it to keep me guessing for the entire story. Flavia is a fascinating character, and you cannot help but love her. Although the book is written from the perspective of an eleven year old girl,it is not childish in any way. Any adult looking for a good mystery will love it. I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series.
