"Not sure about this so far. I love Daniel Handler, but the protagonist's voice seems inconsistent thus far: while she is witty, trendy, and clearly intelligent/self-aware, she'll spell things incorrectly and leave her sentences incomplete.

Both beautiful and haunting, but also relentless. Goodness be damned, and all hope muffled until silenced.
Aaron is reading Tenth of December: “From across the woods, as if by common accord, birds left their trees and darted upward. I joined them, flew amount them, they did not recognize me as something apart from them, and I was happy, so happy, because for the first time in years, and forevermore, I had not killed, and never would.”

Oh, how awesome it would've been to live during "Dr." Jerry Thomas' time. The second portion of his guide includes a detailed sketch of how to build your own still, as well as several signature recipes for cordials and liqueurs. Beautiful.
