Summary The Bad Beginning 107 ê Dear ReaderI'm sorry to say that the book you are holding in your hands is extremely unpleasant It tells an unhappy tale about three very unlucky children Even though they are charming and clever the Baudelaire siblings lead lives filled with misery and woe From the very first page of this book when the children are at the beach Trous fire a plot to steal their fortune and cold porridge for breakfastIt is my sad duty to write down these unpleasant tales but there is nothing stopping you from putting this book down at once and reading something happy if you prefer that sort of thingWith all due respect Lemony Snick. Up until now the three Baudelaire children have lived a fairly lavish life until a raging fire burns through their home with their parents inside Their deaths are suspicious and nobody really knows how the fire started in the first place Now they have nothing left and Mr Poe must find a relative that’s willing to take on the responsibility of caring for them “Mr Poe opened his mouth to say something but erupted into a brief fit of coughing “I have made arrangements” he said finally “for you to be raised by a distant relative of yours who lives on the other side of town His name is Count Olaf” When the children are delivered to their new caretaker Count Olaf their hope is that their life will take a turn for the better However it seems that Count Olaf’s only interest is gaining their family fortune and the Baudelaire children must find a way to protect themselves from his nasty schemes There were comical parts in the book and surely the whole story isn’t just bad events happening to the children I felt that there were positive aspects too I personally admired how the children stood together and had each other’s back They’re intelligent kids–effective problem solvers–and make the best out of the predicament they’re in Also there are many important messages about family trust embracing what you have and making the best of it For me the biggest takeaway was that justice and life in general don’t always work in our favor as the adults who are supposed to be the protectors make one mistake after another in this book It’s enough to drive one mad and reminded me of how crazy things can get when deranged people have power and control over others especially children I enjoyed the writing and thought it was really easy to follow We loved the illustrations but found ourselves wanting because there aren’t that many and mainly just at the beginning of each chapter There are freuent new vocabulary words introduced for children to learn and I appreciated the addition of them with thorough explanations “It is very useful when one is young to learn the difference between “literally” and “figuratively” If something happens literally it actually happens; if something happens figuratively it feels like it is happening If you are literally jumping for joy for instance it means you are leaping in the air because you are very happy If you are figuratively jumping for joy it means you are so happy that you could jump for joy but are saving your energy for other matters” The ending is left wide open for the second book The Reptile Room I’m really looking forward to starting the next book and reading this whole series My plan is to read them all with my kids before we start the Netflix series4You can see all my reviews wwwreadrantrockandrollcom

Book when the children are at the beach and receive terrible news continuing on through the entire story disaster lurks at their heels One might say they are magnets for misfortuneIn this short book alone the three youngsters encounter a greedy and repulsive villain itchy clothing a disas. This series was my ENTIRE LIFE when I was a small human child I saved any and all money I received to buy the books my first collection of matching hardcovers and listened to them on cassette tape OKAY GUESS WHO JUST SOUNDS OLD RIGHT NOW when I wasn't re reading the physical copies Hello I even intended to become a famous author myself and write under the pseudonym Orange Peel because obviously So yes I am a mild fan right here And I decided I had to reread before the Netflix series comes out Of which I will be watching And hopefully flailing ecstatically which is a big big word here which means FREAKING OUT BECAUSE LEMONY SNICKET IS THE BEST THING OF LIFEAhemI also loved the movie just so you know SODA SODA BANANA #IUnderstoodThatReferenceObviously the series is timeless I completely adored it even though I'm 23 and not erm 10 But whatever The true sign of a good book is that any age can adore itAlthough I found the story 1000% creepy than I did as a kidbecause Olaf's ploy to marry Violet because just that bit creepy when you think about itAnd of course it made my little soul totally muchly pained to see the torment the Baudelaire's go through But I love the clever uips and the witty jokes and I adore how it doesn't dumb down the children Any time a character tries to dumb down a character the Baudelaire's glare and fight back GO SMART CHILDREN WHO DESERVE TO BE TREATED AS HUMANS AND NOT OBJECTS I love this series omg Wait while I frolic down memory lane THIS IS AN UNFORTUNATE SERIES AND I LOVE IT
