Count Olaf I'd back at his antics, and he almost succeeds. Thankfully the children are smart and become safe once again.
The plot for this story was much better than the first book. I loved the reptiles and snakes, plus I am always happy for a murder mystery.
I do feel like the ending could have been better though.
This was such a delight to read still, that I immediately bought the next book in the series.
