My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I am sorry to tell you that this review will not have a happy ending, or a happy beginning. It may be speckled with small fortunes in between but nothing to create enough good to way out the bad.
I am totally kidding, this book is so nostalgic for me, I loved this series growing up. Count Olaf is a menace and a half that you just can’t wait to see what he’s going to say next and the whole thread of the first book is a dark introduction through the gate to the world Snicket is building. Klaus will forever be my favourite Baudelaire, I mean his love of books is enough right?
I’ve got to wrap this up quickly, I mean, the roast beef is in the oven… 😉
Onto the second book swiftly! Hope your unfortunate readathon is going well so far! Let me know in the comments along with your favourite moments/quotes!
