Thanks for your insight...I tend to be slow on the uptake on books like
this. I have not gotten through more than 1 of them and perhaps, based on
your appraisal I should try it again.

I have presumed from the beginning that the author was really a 'pen
name'...if you look at http://www.lemonysnicket.com/index.html (you get the
same page off of Harper Collin's site) you will find that this is basically
verified by the tone of the site...now just WHO is Lemony Snicket!???
