The Name of This Book is Secret

Author: Pseudonymous Bosch
Rating: 2 / 5 Stars
Verdict: Bury

I heard this book was like A Series of Unfortunate Events. From the name of the title to the pseudo name of the author to even the introduction, I had high hopes. By three chapters in, I had no idea why people make the comparison. Ok, I have some idea - the style is somewhat similar. But while Lemony Snicket's series is funny, Secret tries but flops. There is nothing wrong with this book per se, but it is just flat. The plot is not very engaging, the characters, besides the main two, are under developed, and there isn't anything to really hold your attention.
