Customer Reviews of The Lump Of Coal

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unexpected Treasure In this story, it starts off a little sad. No one wants a lump of coal for Christmas. At least, that’s what you think. Someone wants a lump of coal and it makes them very happy. Snicket turns a negative into a positive without being obvious. It just happens naturally, as we follow the coal on his journey. The Lump Of Coal, I think, actually teaches you to look beyond preconceptions. A cliché comes to mind, but I think it’s appropriate in this instance. One person’s trash is another person’s treasure. PS: The cover is actually silver, not white.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Hilarious Holiday Story by Lemony Snicket Lemony Snicket has done it again. Creating a story about a lump of coal and turning it into tale of friendship, gratitude, and, yes, the small miracles that can happen in one’s everyday life. Definitely a good read for anyone who is familiar with his style (and even those that aren’t) and his bestselling series, Series of Unfortunate Events. I love how he turned a lump of coal that tends to be used in the everyday bbq into the soul of an artist.
