Murder Most Unladylike

Murder Most Unladylike  - Robin  Stevens I completely feel in love with the characters and the story! I really wanted to read some crime/mystery story and this one was the perfect one!

I didn't like Daisy at first; I thought she was a spoiled brat, who used other people to her advantage, but I was surprised to see how her character developed. She grew quite a bit throughout the story and I was very pleased to see that. She was still very pushy by the end of the book but at least she showed that she was sorry to put her friend in that position.

Hazel, on the other hand, was great in my opinion! I loved her narrative voice and comments. I got angry every time someone would mention her country or her nationality. That is the only negative point I have with this book.

The rest of the characters were very entertaining to read and I imagined Miss Griffin to talk and move just like Lady Bracknell from The Importance of Being Earnest.

As regards the story, I thought it was very interesting, especially the setting. Boarding schools seem to be the perfect place to have an adventure but they also sound so creepy! I'm glad I never got to attend to one myself. The mystery aspect was VERY good, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Also, I love all the little references to other crime stories and characters.

"Miss Marple!" hissed Daisy under her breath. "Holmes and Watson, if you please."

I totally agree with Daisy here, who wants to be Miss Marple?

I would highly recommend this book and I'm looking forward to reading more of the Detective Society.

I received a copy of this via NetGalley, for an honest review.
