    "A high school English curriculum classic. An incredibly interesting read into how society functions and potentially crumbles. You will find yourself aligning yourself with different (animal) perspectives, which may provide some insight into your own moral/social leanings."

    "Third person point-of-view books are very common these days but A Series of Unfortunate Events is one of the best to implement this style. Everything is clearly written and you know exactly what everyone is thinking. I really appreciate how well written this book is."

    "There are so many books told in the third person that I am not sure I would choose this one. It is not a bad book but there are many better ones out there."

    "The ultimate modern classic. A tour-de-force, and an exhilarating read. J.K. Rowling's imagination is endless and bountiful, and she always knows where to take us to surprise us once again, and more. Some will prefer one of the tomes to the others, of course, but the series, in its long, eventful and spectacular journey, shines brightly and stays with the reader a long time after it's been consumed. At least it stayed with this reader, and I don't think I'll forget any of it anytime soon. A massive accomplishment and a wild ride for all readers."
