I AM HALF-SICK OF SHADOWS By Alan Bradley April 1, 2012

Posted by lycan librarian in book reviews, Books and reading.

      Hooray! A new Flavia de Luce book! This time our little expert on poisons is in the middle of a murder when a movie crew is brought to Buckshaw, the de Luce’s decaying English estate, to film. All three de Luce girls are excited, as the most famous stars of the day will be starring. But, alas, as is to be expected when Flavia is around, they won’t all make it out of there alive. As always, Bradley’s prose, plot and the relationship between sisters makes for a merry read, and is it just this reader’s wild imagination, or is Inspector Hewitt growing to respect Flavia and her mind more and more each book? If you have not read any of the books in this series, by all means, grab the first, THE SWEETNESS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PIE and read them in order, so that your respect for this tenacious protagonist may also increase with each volume. They are wonderfully imaginative and enjoyable reads for tweens, teens and adults.
