I Am Half-Sick of Shadows (Flavia de Luce Mysteries) by Alan Bradley
I Am Half-Sick of Shadows (Flavia de Luce Mysteries)

justine.seidel, January 2, 2012

I adore this series and was so happy to see Bradley had put out a Christmas version--set entirely at the De Luce Buckshaw estate. It was a real treat, and Flavia's voice is, as-always, precocious, sharp and funny. The mysteries are always secondary to Flavia's inner ramblings and interactions with the adults around her.

Highly recommended, along with the rest of the books in the series.
