Review: The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie
The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Yes, I’m reading them out of order, but it really doesn’t matter. I love the protagonist of these books! Perhaps it’s the absolutely delightful audio presentation, but I have no difficulty believing in Flavia, as some readers seem to. I know, she’s only eleven, but I just want her to be real so much that–for me, she is! It could also have something to do with my lifelong penchant for books with precocious and adventurous young protagonists. :)

I have a little more trouble with some plot aspects of the novel than I do with the character. A bit too much exposition here and there, for sure, and some loose threads. But still a lovely read!
