Publisher: Egmont Books
I really enjoyed this book. As the first one in this series, The Reptile Room, threw me in a loop of emotions because everytime I thought things were going alright, something really bad happened.
For a middle grade book this was really dark, which is good in a way because it's different and let's kids know that bad things do happen aswell.
Something that I really disliked was the fact that NOBODY seemed to listen to what the kids had to say. If they had stopped and just listened for 1 minute, maybe half the drama that took place wouldn't have happened in the first place.
The characters remained the same for the most part, with the adding of the kids' uncle, Monty. I absolutely loved that character and the kids seemed to have needed him at this particular time in their lives.
But again, WHY WON'T ANYONE LISTEN TO THEM. It's incredibly frustrating and it made me enjoy the book a bit less to be honest. Plus, Count Olaf is one persistent motherducker.... Geez.
Have you read this book? What did you think?
