A Series Of Unfortunate Events
*The Bad Beginning* #1
By Lemony Snicket
Harper Collins Publishers Ink, 162pg
When the Baudelaire siblings, Violet, Sunny, and Klaus where at the beach they then received terrible news, that continues threw the story, disaster lurks at their heels. One might say their always misfortunate. Even though how talented and smart they were, they couldn’t do any thing to stop it. The three then encountered a greedy and repulsive villain. That caused a disastrous fire, and a plot to steal their family fortune. But all they could have was cold porridge for breakfast.
Violet was the oldest out of the Baudelaire family and was 14 years old. She always made inventions. She then pulled her hair back before inventing a new device. Klaus was the middle child and wore glasses, which made him look intelligent. He was the only child in the neighborhood that ever read almost every book of any species. Sunny was the youngest and was only an infant, and very small for her age, scarcely larger than a boot. She was known for biting, she only had four teeth, but could brake threw anything, and couldn’t talk.
The book was always a mystery; I couldn’t imagine what would happen next! I couldn’t think of great children having to suffer that much, especially for having their talents they have. That’s what made it a great book.
I recommend this book to people that love mystery but also loving kinds of books, especially one's that have your mind thinking and wanting to read more about what would happen next.
