Darkish Light Reading

In the interest of full disclosure ("full disclosure" here means "even telling the bits that other folks might not approve of") I would like to say that the children and I have been devouring the Series of Unfortunate Events books the last few days.

They're funny.

One Sunday I found one of these in the nursery (a toddler's big sister had left it there during the service) so I picked it up and started reading it - and I was impressed. It really *was* funny! And I actually thought it was well-written. Or at least *cleverly* written.

The books are clever-- a modern-day set of gothic novels, complete with unrelieved sensational happenings.
