    My reading group has plenty of Flavia de Luce fans. But I’ve recently realized that we like these novels for different reasons. Personally, I think Bradley’s biggest problem is that Flavia doesn’t sound 11.

    If they hadn’t mentioned her age, I would have assumed that she was 70, which is why I’ve read every Flavia de Luce novel Bradley has ever published. I find young characters in fiction annoying.

    Flavia is an intelligent girl that is meant to be wise beyond her years. I remember reading The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie and waiting to cringe, as I often do when children in fiction take center stage. But to my surprise, I had a great time. Flavia is probably the most entertaining 11-year-old I’ve ever come across.
