I first saw a really strange trailer earlier this year. It turned out to be the Lemony Snicket movie with Jim Carrey. So last time I was in Barnes and Noble, I decided to buy the first book on Audio CD (I was also swayed by the fact that my "Clue" hero Tim Curry was the narrator of the book).

Simply put, I liked the first story, but I was also frusrated by it. Lemony's style of defining a word in almost every paragraph was beyond annoying. I understand why he did it (gimmick move that also helps kids understand the verbage), but I was put off.

I am interested in trying another book in the series, as there are 11 in all. I will see the movie just to see how this translates.

So, has anyone here read the books? Do they get better as they go along? Is there any point in following this series to its conclusion?

WADSWORTH: The games up, Scarlet. There are no more bullets left in that gun.
SCARLET: Oh, come on, you don't think I'm gonna fall for that old trick?
WADSWORTH: It's not a trick. There was one shot at Mr. Boddy in the study. Two for the chandelier, two at the lounge door, and one for the singing telegram.
SCARLET:That's not six.
WADSWORTH: One plus two plus two plus one.
SCARLET:Nuh, uh. There was only one shot that got the chandelier. That's one plus two plus ONE plus one.
WADSWORTH: Even if you are right, that would be one plus one plus two plus one, not one plus TWO plus one plus one.
SCARLET:(thinking) Okay, fine.One plus two plus one--(angered) Shut up!

For me, Minutemen's a bit off-key. However, Cooke did well composing the art and also putting in the familiar 9-panel layout in spots. (My review) I really hope that the plot won't move in this direction after seeing Captain Metropolis: (spoiler text)...
