I'm listening to The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket while I do my cooking today. The villain, Count Olaf, is brilliantly described! Even his accessories are wicked. Here's the description of his candle:
His candle gave off shadows.

You'd think that a candle would give off light, but this candle is described by its shadows. I love it! Good writing, Lemony!
