Adverbs: A Novel by Daniel Handler
Adverbs: A Novel

You really can't go wrong with Daniel Handler- whether writing as himself or as his alter-ego, Lemony Snicket, his way with words is always fabulous and bright. Displaying original ideas and intelligent prose- Handler is America's rare living gem.

This is not what I was hoping for. Rather than a well-founded argument against irrational faith, it is a fear-mongering anti-Islamic screed. Filled with misinformation, it goes so far as to say that some people belive such horrible things that we are morally compelled to kill them (pg 53, paper edition). How this is rational is beyond me.
