  1. This was GREAT!! I’ve been reading this series for YEARS and everything you said was SPOT ON. I never realized, but can totally see now, Harriet’s influence and presence throughout the series. Also, as the series progresses, Dogger is one of my favorite characters ever–next to Flavia. I also loved the connections with The Graveyard Book and Veronica Mars. I can definitely see those connections. And I agree that in spite of that, this is it’s very own book. In an age of digital books, the Flavia deLuce series is one that I have started collecting in paper and ink for my bookshelf. Thanks for a great podcast!!

    • Thanks for this note!

      We’re planning on doing another book in the Flavia de Luce series next year for the podcast.

  2. Thanks! We’re so glad you enjoyed the show. Our praise came from the heart. What awesome books! — Todd
