It's a bit over a week into December, which means I have almost certainly started thinking about this book alongside all my other holiday preparations. Time for another reread!
Jayne Entwistle does a wonderful job narrating this book and bringing Flavia de Luce and the little town of Bishop's Lacey to life. #audiobooks
An okay read, but definitely *not* a cozy mystery. Prefer not to see things from the villain's POV. Had some issues with the very 80s-inspired future world building. Eve and Rourke are entertaining enough characters, but I had trouble believing their relationship progression. Might continue reading the series, but not any time soon, I don't think.
I can see why this is considered a classic of the mystery/thriller genre, and I am glad I have read it (well, read and listened; Dan Stevens did an excellent narration), but I only *liked* it rather than loving it. I can see how it has influenced other works, and I look forward to spotting that influence in the future.
I‘ve been a member of LibraryThing for 12 years, and it is my primary book cataloging spot. For more social aspects it probably could be better (I tend to lurk more than post in any forum, though, so I may not be the best judge of things). #LibraryThing
