Once again, I enjoyed the mystery, but disliked the main character. Flavia‘s weirdly adult thought processes and smugness over her own cleverness gets on my nerves. I‘m not saying I won‘t read any more of this series, just that I may take a break. Still recommend. The story is a diverting read, and the way Bradley works in chemistry is interesting. I think if you like Flavia, you will *really* like her. She‘s a love or hate kind of character.
