The Bad Beginning (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Book 1)

Based on a recommendation from Cory Doctorow I picked up a copy of The Bad Beginning (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Book 1), by Lemony Snicket, under the guise of getting it for my oldest son to read for school. In fact it was primarily for me and it was a great read, taking me only an hour or two to finish the book. I hope my son enjoys it so I can rationalize buying more of the series.

Thie is one of the best books I've ever read. It just draws you in, I read the first one in seven hours! I definitly recommend this book. Don't do what Lemony tells you to do. The books are great so read them!!!!!!!!
