3.5 stars!! The story is finally picking up the pace! At last we have a glimpse of something other than the now typical cycle:
1.- The Baudelaires have a new home
2.- Count Olaf appear in disguise with an evil plot
3.- Nobody believes the children, even though Olaf's disguise is ridiculous.
4.- Olaf's plan is discovered and he runs away.
5.- The end.
With this book we are finally encountering new elements to what has to be a bigger story behind the Baudelaire fire, their parents, Beatrice, and Lemony Snicket himself :)
