Write 6 words you would put on this book if it were in the “Blind Date With A Book” shelf. Chemistry, Mystery, Invisible Ink, Jail, History, Dilemma Cars.
Genre: Children’s Mystery
Who was your favorite character and why? Lemony Snicket because I could relate to him the most and because he was one of the easiest characters to understand.
Who was your least favorite character and why? Hangfire because he was an evil trickster, liar and thief.
Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while? At first, it was more mysterious than the previous book in the series but it was actually far simpler but much more intense.
Was it plot or character driven? Character.
What did you think of the ending? It was a happy ending although now I don’t want to read anything else until the third book in the series gets published. Such a cliffhanger!
What was the moral of the story? Asking lots of questions can either kill the cat or make the cat wiser.
Favorite quote: “Anyone who gives you a cinnamon roll fresh from the oven is a friend for life.” – Lemony Snicket
Have you read other books in the series? I’ve read the first book in the series, Who Could That Be At This Hour?, but this one was much better.
Have you read other books by the same author? Yes. The Series of Unfortunate Events is a brilliant series but this book is also pretty awesome. I’m torn between which one I like more.
Who would you recommend it to? Lovers of intense mystery novels.
