i liked this (and am glad i finally got around to reading something that's been on my to-read list for a long time!), but felt as though Lowry was trying just a bit too hard to create an old fashioned type of novel. it felt a bit contrived... as if it was trying to be something along the lines of "A Series of Unfortunate Events". which is surprising to me, because Lowry is an amazing author (The Giver and Number the Stars, just to name a few).
