Review
Great book. The Baudelaire's continue their miserable lives escaping from Count Olaf, who is trying to steal their fortune. They encounter mushrooms, a mechanical monster, and a distressing message from a lost friend. Read the book to find out why the 11 addition to this series only makes it better.

Good book. The story of a great American who traveled to California during the Gold Rush mixed with the story of the San Fransisco Earthquake, 1906.

This book was amazing. It had a wonderful plot line and it always left you with a cliff hanger. I would recommend this book.
