Genre: Children's Literature
Setting: In and around fantastic city.
First Sentence: The stretch of road that leads out of the city, past Hazy Harbor and into the town of Tedia, is perhaps the most unpleasant in the world.
This book is the second in the author's thirteen novel series entitled "A Series of Unfortunate Events."
Once again, the Baudelaire orphans must deal with clueless adults, and the evil Count Olaf.
Dr. Montgomery is the herpetologist who studies snakes and lizards in the Reptile Room. He is a great guy and the orphans would love to live with him and his reptiles.
Unfortunately, the Baudelaires are doomed to live an unhappy life. And Dr. Montgomery is also doomed to have an unfortunate life.
When Count Olaf appears as Dr. Montgomery's new assistant Stephano, the orphans must find away to prove Stephano's guilt to Mr. Poe.
A very interesting book. I enjoyed it. Check out the very, very interesting page 154 in chapter 11.
