    You can also see my review @ https://readrantrockandroll.com/2018/... In The Bad Beginning, the Baudelaire children lost their parents and everything they had before being shipped off to Count Olaf?s house. Count Olaf would be their caretaker until they were of age. Quickly the ch...

    For anyone who isn't familiar with Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, it's a 13 part children's book series that follows the lives of the three Baudelaire children, Violet, Klaus and Sunny after their parents perish in a fire that destroyed their family home. Cheerful rig...

    So, Celyn and I cruised on to book 2, pausing only for breath. This book sets a pattern, a formula, that is repeated in each of the books we've read so far. The children move to a new place. All the adults are idiots. Count Olaaf arrives in disguise and at some point a se...

    4 STARS!! Finished this is one day! It was a great follow up to the first and was much more dark, dreary, and funny. I also really like snakes, so I enjoyed this one a bit more than the first. When I finished it though I couldn't help but wonder HOW this series goes on to 13 boo...

    I love this book a lot more than the first one. I think the first book is just introduction to characters, and this one Violet especially begins to establish herself as a character which I LOVE. Also, this one remains one of the most upsetting. I'm excited to see some of these moments ...

    This was both entertaining and sad. I remember liking this part of the movie a lot. But god the adults are so dumb ugh. I know that it's supposed to be like this, but I just feel like shaking them and yelling "omg shut the f*** up and listen to these kids goddammit!" Olaf is really ...

    In this second volume, the Baudelaire children are sent to stay with another distant relative who is a herpetologist - studies snakes, therefore the reptile room of the title. What proceeds is another adventure of mishaps and contrived situations that see the children triumph, yet not ...

    This is good light reading to pass away a quiet evening at work. For a grown man such as myself I can't ask for or expect more. It's an enjoyable sequel filled with all of the same reading pleasures (and all of the same pitfalls for the Baudelaire orphans) as novel the first. I've b...

    Wow, this series tanked hard - and so damn soon after a great first book! I kinda expected it to dip in quality gradually, like every series does at some point, but so quickly and by so much in just the second book? That?s impressive! So the orphaned Baudelaire children, Violet, ...

    3.5ish Stars. I was actually liking this one a lot more than the first one right up until the unfortunate event. The unfortunate event was indeed unfortunate but that's not what made me stop liking it as much. I felt it got kind of boring and it dragged out. I did still love the wr...

    *I'm not going to rate this, because I've already read this book & stand by my first rating of it. Even though I've read this series before & I know how unfortunate this story is, it was hard to remember all the details & everything the Baudelaire orphans go through. It...

    *first read Jan 21* #RYBSAT seriously though, the ending to each book in The Series of Unfortunate Events makes me cry! This ending tore my heart! Each book only gets better. I probably loved this one more than The Bad Beginning, if that's even possible. I have to say, Sunny had h...

    As the good little fan of Lemony Snicket I am, I've decided to reread THEM ALL because I'm watching the Netflix show. And by "good little fan" here I mean "a rabidly obsessed grape who is flailing unnaturally enthusiastically at all hours because loves this series so much." So this ...

    It's a cool, cloudy gray grim day... It's 25th January.. well..it reminds me with the event that triggered all the Series of Unfortunate Events, that increased for many of us lately... One of them, I read this book now in ebook format.. since all the book stores increased the price...

    3.5. Enjoyed this much more than the first one! Uncle Monty is seriously great. I mean, I really just want to see these kids be happy, but I can?t help but wonder how Lemony Snicket can make it worse for them... ...

    I liked this book better than the first just because I loved how Uncle Monty was with the kids. Uncle Monty was a great character too. But alas . . . And I adored Sunny's relationship with the Incredibly Deadly Viper! The end was sad of course! ...

    While re-reading this series my main question is why the hell is an incompetent banker the only adult helping these children. Like where are the police or social workers???? ...

    These books are amazing. This book is a little darker than the first. It tells you right from the beginning that Uncle Monty will be killed. Other examples of darkness: p. 51 ...he would slit the throats of the Baudelaire orphans as easily as you or I might eat a small butter cooki...

    This series is already frustrating me so much. Why does no one listen to the kids? How is Mr. Poe allowed any responsibility? How is Mr. Poe so entirely incompetent? How can I stop becoming physically tense with infuriation every time Mr. Poe is mentioned? Will these kids ever get a ...

    4.3 An improvement compared to the first book, although it was basically the same life lessons. This was another quick read and I really loved the storyline of this one. Violet once again shows her cunning knowledge in tools and devices, Klaus's bookish personality saved their liv...

    These books are such fast reads! They also take me back to when I first read them in my last year of primary school, when life was much easier. However, reading the unfortunate events of Sunny, Klaus and Violet's life always makes my life a little better - as horrific as that is. T...

    I love Uncle Monty. I love Uncle Monty. I love his coconut cake. I love the Incredibly Deadly Viper. I love the movie theater and the popcorn and Zombies in the Snow; I love Monty?s house and his shaped shrubs and his plans to voyage to Peru. I love the Reptile Room (the place)...

    I distinctly remember this book being my favourite out of the whole series as a child and after rereading it, that has definitely proven to be true! But I couldn't really tell you why it's my favourite, it just grabs me like no other in the series did! I just love the Baudelaires and h...

    I really love the creative simplicity of these books. Not only with the language but the locations and the occupations and the divide of good and evil. I love how each character has a single identifiable trait and that?s enough. I just, I?m really happy reading these books. They?...

    "If one's safety is threatened, one often finds courage one didn't know one had." I like this book better than the first one. Count Olaf took the next step in pursuing the Baudelaire's treasure and it was fun! I can't help but be frustrated when no one believes the children even ...
