My rating: 2 of 5 stars
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 another novel by him.
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.
The ideas were not linked. Plain boring.
All in all, it was an okay book but could have been way better.I was very disappointed!
