it was amazing
bookshelves: older-kids-teen, my-favorites

I just finished reading this for the second time; now with my daughter. According to goodreads it has been 7 years since I last read it, time flies!!! This is always a series that I am quick to recommend, a perfect tragic/comedy that you cannot help but love. The poor Baudelaire orphans are unable to catch a break or find a remotely helpful adult figure. Thank goodness their individual passions for building, reading and biting get them out of most situations. One of my favorite additions to these novels are all the marvelous jargon and elucidations added throughout; meaning that readers will learn new vocabulary if they like it or not.
