The Weed that Strings the Hangman's Bag by Alan Bradley (audiobook)

The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag  - Alan Bradley, Jayne Entwistle

Series: Flavia de Luce #2


This was a solid installment of the Flavia de Luce series. I like Flavia, but I sometimes find her chemistry digressions a bit dull. The narrator managed to capture Flavia's enthusiasm for poisons quite well and overall I thought was a good choice. Honestly, Flavia can be quite a beastly child at times though, like when she pulled the stunt with the chocolates.


I read this audiobook for the Terror in a Small Town square (since Flavia investigates a suspicious death in her small village) for the 2018 Halloween Bingo.
