Recensione

Praise for As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust
 
“Flavia de Luce [is] perhaps contemporary crime fiction’s most original character—to say she is Pippi Longstocking with a Ph.D. in chemistry (speciality: poisons) barely begins to describe her.”Maclean’s
 
“Another treat for readers of all ages . . . [As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust] maintains the high standards [Alan] Bradley set from the start.”Booklist
 
“Exceptional . . . [The] intriguing setup only gets better, and Bradley makes Miss Bodycote’s a suitably Gothic setting for Flavia’s sleuthing. Through it all, her morbid narrative voice continues to charm.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)
 
“Even after all these years, Flavia de Luce is still the world’s greatest adolescent British chemist/busybody/sleuth.”The Seattle Times
 
“Plot twists come faster than Canadian snowfall. . . . Bradley’s sense of observation is as keen as gung-ho scientist Flavia’s. . . . The results so far are seven sparkling Flavia de Luce mysteries.”Library Journal
 
“A rattling good ‘girls’ own adventure’ yarn with an extensive cast of characters and suspects . . . When all is revealed, the links, misunderstandings and secrecy have a satisfying click.”Winnipeg Free Press
 
“A delightful installment in the series!”LibraryReads

Acclaim for Alan Bradley’s beloved Flavia de Luce novels, winners of the Crime Writers’ Association Debut Dagger Award, Barry Award, Agatha Award, Macavity Award, Dilys Winn Award, and Arthur Ellis Award
 
“If ever there were a sleuth who’s bold, brilliant, and, yes, adorable, it’s Flavia de Luce.”USA Today
 
“Part Harriet the Spy, part Violet Baudelaire from Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, Flavia is a pert and macabre pragmatist.”The New York Times Book Review
 
“This idiosyncratic young heroine continues to charm.”The Wall Street Journal
 
“Delightful . . . a combination of Eloise and Sherlock Holmes.”The Boston Globe

Flavia in another environment, as at Miss Bodycote's academy, doesn't work. And the environment amount to the 80% of what makes Flavia's stories fascinating, at least in my opinion.
The story is chaotic, the characters are not convincing. Let's hope that with her coming back home, next time, the author finds inspiration.

Divertente e intrigante come tutti i gialli di Alan Bradley della saga di Flavia De Luce. Questo in più ha una nuova ambientazione oltre oceano molto interessante.

5.0 su 5 stelle Follow Flavia de Luce to her new home 29 novembre 2014
Di Gaby at Starting Fresh blog - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Recensione Vine di un prodotto gratuito ( Cos'è? )
I'd enjoyed Alan Bradley's Flavia de Luce novels from the start. In Flavia de Luce we have an unparalleled young brain, logical, a remarkable chemist with a delightful vocabulary. In As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust, Flavia has moved from their ancestral home in England to a boarding school in Canada where she is to become independent and as a hidden goal, to learn the skills to become an agent of the government.

Bradley's description of this all girls boarding school with ancient traditions and rules is wonderfully done. Just as Buckshaw drew me in, Flavia's new home is just as alive. One of the big heroines is Harriet de Luce, so Flavia learns about her mother through those who knew her.

Flavia adjusts well to the change but on her first night, a corpse falls into her room from the chimney/fireplace. Flavia has several mysteries to unravel: What is the identity of the dead person? How and why did she die? Who are the other agents at the school? Who to trust? What is her role?

One of my favorite Flavia de Luce novels, As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust doesn't disappoint!

4.0 su 5 stelle Flavia in Her Usual Form - But Not So the Story Around Her 19 ottobre 2015
Di Happy Reader - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
September 1951 and 12 year-old Flavia de Luce has been sent to Canada, to attend the same school where her mother went many years before. Miss Bodycote’s Female Academy, outside of Toronto, seems rigid with rules, and if you’ve followed Flavia as I have, that does not seem the best place for our precocious heroine.

It doesn’t start out well. Flavia arrives late at night, and the matron lets her in. The headmistress appears at the head of the stairs: “ ‘Who is it, Fitzgibbon?’ she asked, in a voice that suggested she fed on peaches and steel.”

Flavia is taken to her new room, and on the very first night, a body wrapped in a Union Jack is dislodged from her chimney. A desiccated body clutching an angel pendant. Flavia naturally pockets the pendant, no sense leaving that for the police. And then she finds out that 3 girls have disappeared from the school. Is one of them her chimney-lass?

As always, in this, her 7th novel, Flavia de Luce is intelligent and curious. She can jump to conclusions, and the conclusions aren’t always right, but she, above all, reveres the scientific process. Alan Bradley is excellent at describing Flavia’s leaping and whirling mind: “Feigning stupidity was one of my specialties. If stupidity were theoretical physics, then I would be Albert Einstein.”

Unfortunately, and I am surprised to write this, but “As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust” is not a 5-star mystery for me. That’s a first for a Flavia story. I don’t think it’s because Flavia is in a new location, far from Buckshaw, her dilapidated home, and her usual cast of English eccentrics. It’s because there is too much explaining, maybe too many characters taking up valuable story-telling time. Also, a couple minor mysteries – or questions for Flavia to answer – seem to take away from the main mystery, that of the missing girls. Or maybe that isn’t the main mystery.

Not affecting my review, but I dislike the new Bantam Books paperback. I don’t blame Alan Bradley for which publisher he chooses to go with, but this regularly sized paperback is a bulky 389 pages and seems made to last through only one reading.

Typical Flavia: “The hours trudged by with chains on their ankles.”

I can highly recommend books 1-6 in the series. Here's #6:

2.0 su 5 stelle Did NOT Meet My Flavia Expectations 3 gennaio 2017
Di M. Feltman - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I have absolutely loved this series...peeking in on Flavia's life and crazy adventures; but this book was a complete letdown. It was slow, it was uninteresting, she was bored-I was bored, she wanted to go back home-and I CERTAINLY wanted to go back "home" to the Flavia we all know and love, with her family and her friends Gladys and the handyman, and her beloved sanctuary: her "laboratory". I can't begin to express how disappointed I was in this book. It felt as though the author's heart wasn't in it. I know mine wasn't, in struggling through it. It would be my advice to skip this one and go on to his next Flavia adventure, hoping that it returns in all it's Flavia flourish.
5.0 su 5 stelle A WITTY 12 YEAR OLD DETECTIVE WHO BELONGS WITH THE GENRE'S BEST SLEUTHS 21 maggio 2017
Di M.A. De Neve - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This is my favorite Flavia de Luce mystery. Miss Bodycote’s Female Academy seems the perfect place for Flavia to show off her skills and solve yet another murder - maybe a whole series of them. I liked the cast of characters, and I hoped Flavia would stay there for several more novels, but I don’t want to give the ending away.
There’s a lot happening as we work our way toward that ending. There’s the corpse in the chimney, the missing girls, and the doctor’s wife who may have fallen overboard during a midnight cruise. Flavia hardly ever goes into the chemistry lab which is a shame, but she’s busy with so many other fun things like using the telephone directory. In America, you just dial, you don’t have to wait for an operator. And the shop lady loves her ‘accent.”
I kept writing down interesting Flavia quotes. She has a wonderful way of observing commenting on school and life.

Flavia' s audacious personality lives on in a new murder adventure abroad! A body appears under suspicious circumstances, as usual. Miss De Luce finds herself in a tangle of school girl disappearances and hard-to-read responses from the lady faculty, at an all-girls academy in Toronto, Canada. Murder and spy secrecy are entertained, though we are confused by whether the two plots intersect or not. I enjoyed following Flavia's analytical musings about each new piece of information. Her impulsive and bold investigating continues, with expected running humorous commentary. The ending was a bit too hasty and anti-climatic, tied up too neatly with conveniently revealed last-minute puzzle pieces. Still, I eagerly await any new Flavia episodes! I adore Flavia's quirky personality and Bradley writes her like he lives next door.
