Fiction. Mystery. Thriller. Historical Fiction. HTML:In his wickedly brilliant first novel, Debut Dagger Award winner Alan Bradley introduces one of the most singular and engaging heroines in recent fiction: eleven-year-old Flavia de Luce, an aspiring chemist with a passion for poison. It is the summer of 1950and a series of inexplicable events has struck Buckshaw, the decaying English mansion that Flavias family calls home. A dead bird is found on the doorstep, a postage stamp bizarrely pinned to its beak. Hours later, Flavia finds a man lying in the cucumber patch and watches him as he takes his dying breath. For Flavia, who is both appalled and delighted, life begins in earnest when murder comes to Buckshaw. I wish I could say I was afraid, but I wasnt. Quite the contrary. This was by far the most interesting thing that had ever happened to me in my entire life.

To Flavia the investigation is the stuff of science: full of possibilities, contradictions, and connections. Soon her father, a man raising his three daughters alone, is seized, accused of murder. And in a police cell, during a violent thunderstorm, Colonel de Luce tells his daughter an astounding storyof a schoolboy friendship turned ugly, of a priceless object that vanished in a bizarre and brazen act of thievery, of a Latin teacher who flung himself to his death from the schools tower thirty years before. Now Flavia is armed with more than enough knowledge to tie two distant deaths together, to examine new suspects, and begin a search that will lead her all the way to the King of England himself. Of this much the girl is sure: her father is innocent of murderbut protecting her and her sisters from something even worse.

An enthralling mystery, a piercing depiction of class and society, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie is a masterfully told tale of deceptionsand a rich literary delight.

Overly long and repetitious at times with too many fortunate coincidences. A nice challenge for pint-sized mystery buffs nevertheless as well as adults who just want a bit of lighter reading. But I remain undecided as to whether Bradley's little protagonist is just a plucky young genius or a vindictive sociopath in the making (she toys with poisoning her sisters and a fresh corpse makes her positively giddy). A pretty dull read overall but I''m not ready to abandon the series quite yet. ( )

Flavia de Luce is an 11 year-old with a quick brain and a penchant for chemistry, particularly the chemistry of poisons. When a stranger dies in her family’s garden, she suspects that poison is the culprit, and when the authorities prove too slow at solving the case for her – and especially when her father is pinned as Suspect #1 – Flavia decides to solve it herself.

I know that many people don’t like this one because they think Flavia is too precocious for her age, but I don’t really think it’s too far of a stretch. And yes, she’s pretty darned annoying, but I think (or at least I hope) that in this case the problem is the point – she’s supposed to be irksome (as I suspect some genius children actually may be, to be honest). So with those things I don’t have an issue. Still, I didn’t love the book. The plot was overly convoluted, to the point that the various U-turns and red herrings became exhausting, and in the end, the wrap-up felt trite and tired. But by far the biggest annoyance was that the narrator of the audiobook didn’t bother to learn how to pronoun the *one* Latin word in the book, which turned up on several occasions. Honestly. How hard would that have been? And it was doubly annoying that a character whose key trait is her polymath abilities wouldn’t know how to pronounce one of the very first words you learn in Latin 101. Cripes. ( )

Oh, what fun! I loved Bradley's word-crafting: so delicious and imaginative. And parts were so droll I laughed aloud till I had tears in my eyes.

Flavia is indeed an obnoxiously precocious and mildly wicked youngster, but just vulnerable enough to be forgiven. So glad I found my way to this series. Looking forward to more! ( )

I’ve had several false starts in trying to write a review of this book, because every time I try to explain why I enjoyed it, I drew a blank. In trying to dissect it, I can only enumerate its flaws. As lame as it sounds, all I can really say is that this story is adorable and I loved that it was set in the 1950’s, an era that isn’t found much in contemporary fiction. There is a cast of characters who are just one step away from the stereotypes I see on BBC America sitcom reruns. But it works. The writing is rich and evocative, but it’s written from the 1st person POV of an 11 year old girl, which gives her a ridiculously precocious maturity more suited to an aging, cosmopolitan divorcee than a midcentury preadolescent who has spent her entire sheltered life confined to a country estate and adjoining village. But it works. The narrative is stuffed with similes, seemingly at a rate of one per paragraph, and some of them so awkward that I had to pause to ponder them and how an 11 year old would have the life experience to make them. But it works. The MC is just a lot of fun. She’s a borderline sociopath who gleefully poisons her sisters and is able to lie and manipulate with ease. But she’s also a lonely little girl who yearns for her emotionally absent father and dead mother. My biggest complaint, though, is the mechanism of murder at the heart of this mystery story, where the diabetic murderer uses his insulin syringe to inject a deadly chemical into the victims’ brainstem. Implausible, because even in the 1950’s, insulin syringes did not hold 10cc of fluid, nor did they have a needle long enough and sturdy enough to navigate past the bone structures at the top of the neck to reach the brain stem.

This was the audiobook version, borrowed from my public library. I suspect that Jayne Entwistle’s fantastic performance contributed much to my liking this book in spite of its flaws. ( )

What a sweet read! I loved Flavia's personality, though I found it unbelievable for her to use as much profanity as she does, considering she's eleven years old in 1950's England.

The mystery itself was paced really well, even if the culprit wasn't difficult to deduce. I'd keep reading the series just to know Flavia better. ( )

That means King George the Sixth, and King George the Sixth is not a frivolous man. (chapter four)

It occurred to me that Heaven must be a place where the library is open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. No... eight days a week. (chapter 5)
