My rating: 3 of 5 stars :star :star :star
I enjoyed this third installment in A Series of Unfortunate Events. It seems like all the books follow the same sort of storyline. Things go ok in the start, then they encounter Count Olaf in disguise, their guardian doesn't listen to them or see him for who he truly is, and they become scared. Then, Count Olaf attempts to murder their guardian and get the children for his own in order to gain their fortune. This has happened in every single book so far in the series.
While I like these books, they're short and easy to read, it seems like the story is repeating itself at this point. :|| I really hope the next one veers off the path a bit because otherwise I'm not sure I can handle so many books that all end the same way... However, it was an enjoyable read. Not miraculous, but fun all the same :tup
