If I could give you all just one word of advice, it would be . . . well, an incomplete sentence. Besides being grammatically iffy, I'm sure you'd agree that a single word of advice is rarely of much use. Even the phrase "Look out!" (which could prove to be life-saving advice--especially where large falling objects or missing manhole covers are concerned) is two words.

All gifts are not created equal. Historically speaking, there are good gifts and there are bad gifts.

Good gifts: A bottle of champagne, a box of fine Belgian chocolates, the Statue of Liberty.

Bad gifts: A bottle of shampoo, a box of fine Belgian matches, the Trojan Horse.

There was a time when, if you encountered someone with a tattoo, you could pretty much assume he was either a sailor or had, at one time or another, been in prison. There was something, it seemed, about men being cooped up together that made them want to draw on themselves.

As the station wagon pulled back onto the highway, the sun was slowly sinking below the horizon like a leaky boat. Well, except for that fact that boats are not generally round, orange and on fire. Hmm. Come to think of it, in no way whatsoever did the sun, in this instance, resemble a leaky boat. My apologies. That was a dreadful attepmt at simile. Please allow me to try again. As the station wagon pulled back onto the highway, the sun was slowly sinking below the horizon like a self-luminous, gaseous sphere comprised mainly of of hydrogen and helium.

I like this book because it contains everybody's perspectives. And it's also very adventurous. What I like the most part is the squash recipe.

Fans of the Series of Unfortunate Events will find comfort in Soup’s bizarre asides and references, which are similar to Lemony Snicket’s vocabulary lessons and humorous anecdotes about a life shrouded in secrecy.

Three stars for the story itself, five stars for the smart aleck storytelling and audiobook narrator, so I averaged it out to a four. Because there is an exciting tale of intrigue and espionage starring an inventive father, his two sons and one daughter, a host of government agents and goons, and all the people they meet over the course of their adventure, but this isn't really a book based on plot and character development. No, the joy of this tale is the telling, the constant clever asides, snarky comments, witty puns and plays on language, ridiculous situations and set-ups, and cerebrally silly humor. I was most happily amused.
