SPOILER ALERT This one was amazing - so intriguing and many twists and turns! I loved it. I find it a little better than the first one as that one was pretty sick at points. Still love it though. I highly recommend this book to kids and adults alike. It's fun and funny and also horribly sad. Count Olaf appears so secretly and evilly that it is impossible to suspect him until Stephano (Count Olaf in disguise!) himself arrives.
It's amazing and there's nothing more to it. Although I must say the poor Baudelaire orphans have a horrible run with guardians/parents! Their lovely parents dead, getting sent to horrific Count Olaf and thee being sent (now) to their kind Uncle Montgomery Montgomery... only that Uncle Monty gets MURDERED by that awful Olaf. Horrible!
