really liked it
Read in February, 2009

Charming and so much better than the movie. As an adult reader I liked it very much but I don't think I would have enjoyed it as a child. I think over time the constant thwarting of the children could be tiresome, but for the first book it was well balanced. I am curious for those more familiar with the work if they would recommend reading the series straight through in order to keep track of the plot/mystery or if it is better to space the books out to avoid being bored by too much repetition of the dark plot and narration.
