The science that Alan Bradley sprinkles liberally throughout the plot adds another level to Flavia’s investigations. It is so interesting to see science taken from the textbook and applied in such useful ways. The book seemed even more disjointed than the previous books, as best as I could recall. The plot had many little episodes which didn't seem to fit together, even Flavia's thoughts were distracted and less focused (the ribbon situation, for example).

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR • NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERFrom award-winning author Alan Bradley comes the next cozy British mystery starring intrepid young sleuth Flavia de Luce, hailed by USA Today as “one of the most remarkable creations in recent literature.”  Eleven-year-old amateur detective and ardent chemist Flavia de Luce is used to digging up clues, whether they’re found among the potions in her laboratory or between the pages of her insufferable sisters’ diaries. What she is not accustomed to is digging up bodies. Upon the five-hundredth anniversary of St. Tancred’s death, the English hamlet of Bishop’s Lacey is busily preparing to open its patron saint’s tomb. Nobody is more excited to peek inside the crypt than Flavia, yet what she finds will halt the proceedings dead in their tracks: the body of Mr. Collicutt, the church organist, his face grotesquely and inexplicably masked. Who held a vendetta against Mr. Collicutt, and why would they hide him in such a sacred resting place? The irrepressible Flavia decides to find out. And what she unearths will prove there’s never such thing as an open-and-shut case.Acclaim for Speaking from Among the Bones   “[Alan] Bradley scores another success. . . .

I ordered this book nearly 5 years ago and it has sat in the queue until last night, when I finally cracked it open. Good thing today was Saturday as I spent the better part of the day absorbed in the story ... what a delight! I did not realize until I opened it up that this was book 5 in the series, but the characters and setting are more than adequately described to help the reader dive right in. Good plot, plenty of twists and turns, and loose ends neatly tied up - however, it does end on a cliffhanger and in this regard I am glad I waited this long to read this - upon completion I immediately ordered the next two books in the series. Although I generally I lean towards non-fiction/history, I do like the occasional YA as they usually offer a good dose of fresh air. So glad I stumbled onto this series.

Easter is approaching in Bishop’s Lacey, and St Tancred’s church is commemorating its five hundredth anniversary by opening the tomb of the namesake patron saint. Flavia deLuce is eager to witness the exhumation for herself; on opening the tomb however, the onlookers find not the moldering remains of St Tancred, but the recently dead church organist, Mr. Collicutt. Who wanted Mr. Collicutt dead, and why are some church officials so reluctant to proceed with the excavation? Once again, Flavia is on the case, whether the police like it or not.

The fifth Flavia book gets the ball rolling rather quickly with the main murder plot, but there are a lot of other subplots from previous novels that are starting to come together here. The de Luce family’s financial problems have finally come to a head, and Buckshaw is up for sale. There is a cliffhanger here at the end, and the next book seems to be headed for a resolution of sorts. If you’ve enjoyed the other books in the series, this one is a must read.

The 5th book in the Flavia de Luce series has Flavia becoming involved with the 500th anniversary of St. Tancred, with the commemoration opening his tomb under the church. She manages to weasel her way into the opening of the tomb, where to everyone's surprise, they find the body of the church's missing organist in a gas mask. Flavia cannot resist a good murder mystery and begins her own investigation. This leads her to a ghost legend, a secret tunnel, and a missing jewel. While Flavia is busily working on the case, her home situation is changing drastically, with an engagement, and the potential sale of her family home. She also finds out more about her mother from some unexpected sources. Flavia befriends a flora-archeologist who helps to investigate the case, and Flavia uses chemistry to solve a few puzzles along the way. The book ends in a dramatic fashion, leaving the reader anxious for the next installment.

The previous Flavia book was disappointing, and Alan Bradley has corrected every shortcoming of that book and produced the finest Flavia yet. (Newcomers, do read them in order or you will miss a great deal.) It is wonderful to be back in Bishop's Lacey, cuddled up with this cozy mystery in which Bradley's talent shines.

The mystery is the tightest and most interesting yet, and has a slightly eerie atmosphere new to the series. I loved that eerieness and hope it reappears in another.

Flavia has grown up a little (she's almost 12, after all) and the stories of Flavia and her sisters, her mother, father and the estate Buckshaw move forward more than ever. The changes in these beloved characters are most welcome after the static, stilted book four.

Alan Bradley's clever prose is wonderfully entertaining. It's not great literature but for what it is, it's terrific. He is a remarkably gifted writer and at his best here. The book has mystery, wit, suspense, irony, humor and I could go on with the adjectives but the best of all is it has heart. He loves his characters and the town itself and writes about them with lovely tenderness. I didn't want to reach the end of the book.

That he ended on a cliffhanger is surprising -- and maddening good fun. I wish I had book six right now (and seven through ten as well!), and sincerely hope they meet the very high standard he has set himself with "Speaking From Among the Bones."

As Amazon has gotten to know me over the years I often wonder why it recommends to me some of the books it does, and have sometimes been quite disappointed by quite a few of their selections. I read a hefty amount of mysteries and "cozies" as a sort of candy for my brain. It all started with Agatha Christie and Georgette Heyer, and has now led me to Alan Bradley, whose Flavia de Luce may rival even the great Poirot as my favorite mystery sleuth of all time.
You would think books centering around a preteen in 1950s England who is obsessed with poisons, death, and murder would be strange to find enjoyable, but there is no doubting it. Bradley is brilliant. Each Flavia novel I have read has taken me no longer than 1 or 2 days to read because I simply can't put them down. They have everything you could want in a mystery including Flavia, who just makes me laugh out loud sometimes.
I hope Bradley continues his novels, so that in time my children can read them in the same way I read Christie (who they will also be reading if I have anything to say about it). I would hate this series to end after anything less than 50 books! I want to see Flavia grow up, and see how Bradley handles that!
Well done!
