Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.
I loveThe Westing Game, so when I had the chance to read another Raskin book, I seized it. Sadly, I found that MDoL(IMN) lacked a lot of the charm of The Westing Game, leaving instead merely a rather clever puzzle. However, it did occur to me that Raskin is a nearly perfect recommendation for readers who have reached the end of the Lemony Snicket books and are sad there are no more.
