    "One of the best Lemony Snicket books, The Reptile Room is a deceptively short read. It's a great story that might be geared towards the younger crowd, but is great for all ages."

    "This is an excellent book, however I would highly recommend that you read the other books in the series first. If you don’t have a grasp of the plot from the other books in the series it won't make as much sense. While there is a sense of sadness in this book, I absolutely adored the characters and would really recommend it to those of you who are hesitating."

    "Not one my favorites of the series, but still a good read, just a predictable book. The book is a bit long and doesn't have a lot of action so it dragged on."

    "Lemony Snicket really entertains young and old in The Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming. For those who don't know, latkes are potato pancakes that Jews eat around the holidays, most notably Hannukah, their version of Christmas. I found myself laughing and smiling the whole way through this gem. Snicket does a great job of educating us about various holiday traditions, including Christmas too, while entertaining us and making us laugh out loud. I finished the whole book in one sitting it was that good! Highly recommended for adults and kids who want a gentle reminder of what the holidays mean."
