I just read that when a couple of weeks ago, and I quite enjoyed it -- and that's an excellent description. I liked it more than the Lemony Snicket books, actually, because I found it less prone to winking at older readers (although that might have just been me). I'm not sure if the humor value will carry over into a continuing series, but I'm definitely planning on reading book 2.

In the last two weeks I have mainlined every book of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files except for the most recent and the short story collection. The only reason I haven't been averaging one book a day is because I have other reading I'm paid to do. :( The books are addictive, and the character development gets richer and more enjoyable as the books go on.
