I would rate this book a 9.5/10 because it has a great mixture of suspense and mystery also some humour mixed in. I would recommend this book in particular to anyone who is above the age of 8 and below the age of 16. It is a fantastic first book in a series of 13 and I beg you to read it!

Synopsis

SOON TO BE A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES

Are you made fainthearted by death? Does fire unnerve you? Is a villain something that might crop up in future nightmares of yours? Are you thrilled by nefarious plots? Is cold porridge upsetting to you? Vicious threats? Hooks? Uncomfortable clothing?

It is likely that your answers will reveal A Series of Unfortunate Events to be ill-suited for your personal use. A librarian, bookseller, or acquaintance should be able to suggest books more appropriate for your fragile temperament. But to the rarest of readers we say, "Proceed, but cautiously."
