    By Hope Lost

    When I saw this book preview I cried.
    I was so thrilled. At the time I was bedridden with pnemonia, and my laughter faded in to rough coughs that triggered a violent ashma attack, but nevertheless I cried and did my best to sing a happy song. All of you people who post here and there and everywhere are so heartless in regards to the author, Mr. Lemony Snicket, who if he is who he says he is, has devoted his life to something noble and has experienced a miserable time for it. Smartly written, this series will be a brilliant addition to Mr. Snicket's charismatic work. Read it, all of you, and put down the thirty nine clues forever!
    Sincerly, Hope Lost

    Bookreader10

    Hiya guys! My title is bookreader10 if you ever want to hear the truth about books. This book got me a cliffhanger at the end of the sample. I bought it but i did'nt see it was by lemony snicket. It was'nt that entertaning, and i drifted off at a couple of parts. Not that great. --bookreader10--

    11 years old, 5th grade

    I'm currently on page 16 of this book and to my amazement it is not nearly as interesting as A Series of Unfortunate Events. I don't suppose I should read on, should I? I suppose I shouldn't. I will just read it, I mean, what harm could it do? 35 pages will not do any harm.
