I can't really explain it, but I really like this series. I don't read books like this and yet here I am with book two under my belt and looking forward to book three. I actually liked this book better than the first book The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie. I was talked into reading the first...

I see I'm not the only one unthrilled by this second book. There are no spoilers in what follows, but if you loved the first one and are excited for this one, read no further. Or if you do, don't complain to me that I killed your joy.
This story meandered way too much to keep my interest, and I t...

These are cute, cute, cute books! I don't buy it, a kid being this kind of smart, but I don't care. The plot's a little on the thin side, but I don't care. The fun of these books is the delightful fantasy of Eng-er-land post-WWII seen through the eyes of eleven-year-old Flavia, daughter of decaye...

Flavia returns! Oh, delicious young poisoner Flavia de Luce, cousin to Wednesday Addams, Sherlock Holmes as an 11 year-old girl. A delight.

The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag picks up a little more than a month after The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie leaves off, so it was good to read them consecutively. It's summer in Bishop's Lacey, the little village outside of which eleven-year-old Flavia de Luce lives with her father a...

I love this series, especially the feisty 11 year old Flavia deLuce at the centre of it all. England in the 1950s must have been a golden time for childhood. Flavia is left totally alone to roam the countryside on her bike, visit whoever she wants and poke her nose in wherever she wants. Of cours...

Delightful! That's is precisely what this book is. Just a delightful story with the precocious Flavia de Luce. This time is she trying to find out who killed the famous puppeteer Rupert Porson and she does her usual way, by being curious, listening to gossip and putting two and two together. And,...

I liked the first book a little more. I think the mystery was better crafted in the first book. However, it was still quite a mystery. This one was quite sad due to the subject matter. I think that was another reason it didn't sit as well with me. Flavia is her usual self. Very precocious and hig...

The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag is the 2nd book in the Flavia De Luce series. I liked the novel less than the first one as I could not connect with the characters in the beginning and I was a little bit annoyed by Flavia. That changed soon enough and the book became entertaining, as I was...

I think I liked this second book even better than I did the first book in the series, even though I didn’t get to experience the same novelty of Flavia as a character.
I love Flavia and Flavia’s narration. She’s such a hoot. It helps to have a very warped sense of humor to enjoy this mystery serie...
