Thrice the Brinded Cat Hath Mew’d by Alan Bradley

Thrice the Brinded Cat Hath Mew'd cover

Thrice the Brinded Cat Hath Mew’d by Alan Bradley is the eighth Flavia de Luce book and of course the title is a quote from Shakespeare’s Macbeth. There’s not a lot I can say about it really except …

As ever I enjoyed this book because I love Flavia as a character but this one does suffer from a lack of family banter between Flavia and her older sisters, and even Dogger didn’t seem to appear that often. Also I didn’t appreciate the ending at all. There have been too many actual exits of ‘big’ characters in 2016 and I could certainly be doing without fictional ones too!

Don’t worry. It wasn’t Flavia.

I suppose I could take up reading Mills and Boon books – but that might be taking it a bit far.
