I picked this book up at my local library, after noticing it was written by Lemony Snicket, the author of the oh-so-fabulous series - the series of unfortunate events. Now don't get me wrong, I adored these books. They were just so beautifully written and the plots in each one were just amazing. So with high expectations, I began to read the book.
The story was okay. It was simply written which was something that appealed to me. I have to admit, the story was a bit far-fetched and well just not interesting. Characters were introduced at each point but they were all so mysterious and annoying. It was pretty annoying how no-one ever got answers just weird replies like 'We'll see'. The only straightforward person was Moxie who was a pretty awesome character. I don't mean that every character should be so straightforward as Moxie because I love a bit of suspense but some characters were just over the top. A bit like the story in fact.
So Lemony goes on a mystery which was plainly written. I'm not saying I didn't like the style, I actually loved it but the story not so great.
All in all, it was an okay book but could have been way better.
