  • The Marble Tombs that rise on high,Whose Dead in vaulted Arches lye,Whose Pillars swell with sculptur d Stones,Arms, Angels, Epitaphs and Bones,These all the poor Remains of States Adorn the Rich, or praise the Great Who while on Earth in Fame they live,Are senseless of the Fame they give Thomas Parnell, A Night Piece on Death 1721 Alan Bradley must spend a good deal of time combing the dusty poetic tombs of libraries to find the archaic titles for this book series Whenever a new Flavia b [...]


  • Rating 3.5 starsIn which the mystery is solved surrounding the disappearance of Flavia s mother during World War II Also in which Alan Bradley prepares to take the series in an entirely new direction This is a wise move Life at Buckshaw is growing stale, and it s time for Flavia to take her chemistry skills out into the wide world After all, she is almost twelve years old, and beginning to show signs of growing up This works best as a just for fun sort of read I thought the mystery and i [...]


  • I spend a year waiting for it and a day reading it From the first Flavia mystery five years ago, I have been hooked The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches did not disappoint There is so much I wish I could say about it, but won t for fear I will give something away I will say this, after reading the first lines I said to myself, I knew it But I didn t know it I didn t know the half of it.Just as Bradley has done in each of the Flavia books as they progress, he brings us deeper into the l [...]


  • Flavia de Luce is a brilliant young girl whose knowledge of chemistry is on par with many Ph.Ds Flavia uses her abilities to investigate murders, and delights in solving crimes ahead of the police In this sixth book in the series Flavia once again uses her skills to track down a killer.The book could be read as a standalone but it s much better to start with book one and go on from there Twelve year old Flavia de Luce and her family are at the train station awaiting the return of a relati Flavia [...]


  • As much as I love Flavia, there s just no plot in this one, just a lot of needlessly convoluted, attempted exposition of past events in the series.


  • Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for providing a copy in exchange for an honest review.4.5 stars I adore this series The character of Flavia, the complexity and layers of the relationships, the setting, the players, the word craft, etc In book 5 for the first time Mr Bradley left us with a cliffhanger, and with book 6 we are treated to a roller coaster ride It s almost as if everything that was creating an undercurrent of tension is blown wide open It did feel like the last few book Thanks [...]


  • Gasp I can t believe I am giving a Flavia book a rating of just three stars but alas I am I have loved this series so much and with much anticipation of book 6 wrapping things up, was a bit disappointed.The book starts out good and has quite the climax in the middle but then it fizzles out Things are vague and the past sleuthing that Flavia did, did not happen in this book Things just kind of fell into her lap so to speak It did leave me wondering if Alan Bradley was using book 6 to l Gasp I can [...]
