After reading this book I still had the same questions I had before. This book seemed to be a lot of nonsense and I couldn't follow it. The hidden meaning (which it must have had) remained hidden to me. I still don't know who Beatrice is.

It reads nothing like his other books in the Unfortunate series, but yet it somehow does.

I loved the Series, but I really didn't like this book.

Having seen the movie, I had to read this. It was quite humorous and worth the time it took to figure out how to read it. Very strange... but that was to be expected.

This is a great book to read if you enjoy the Series of Unfortunate Events. It's funny, interesting, and utterly confusing. It gives you a glimpse into the deep secrets and side stories that the books brush over. Of course, that meant that I actually had more questions after reading this than I did before reading it... but it's worth it.

I read this book without finishing the series (I'm currently only on book 3). I feel like there are probably a lot more things that I could have picked up on, or at least recognized the reference too, had I been done with the series first. I loved the photos that illustrate different chapters. It looks like the author just went through a bunch of people's old photo boxes or used a library's archives and then tried to make the picture fit into the story.
I agree with other reviewers, it seems like this book will only lead to more questions, but it was a fun read! I will re-read it when I'm done with A Series of Unfortunate Events and see if anything more makes sense!

This book is a must-have for Lemony Snicket fans. If you are really into the series, and willing to study this book very carefully, forwards and back, then read it now. It doesn't answer any of the questions you really want answered (does Lemony Snicket ever?), but it gives you other fascinating information about VFD and what it is like, Lemony Snicket's past, and the Sebald code.
