A Series of Unfortunate Events:
The Bad Beginning
By: Lemony Snicket

This book by Lemony Snicket is about three Baudelaire children who have bad luck. Their names are Violet ( the oldest), Klaus ( the middle aged child), and Sunny ( the youngest). Their bad luck starts off when their house gets burnt down while their parents were inside. Then after they found out that they no longer had a house and their parents were dead they became orphans. They first lived with Mr. Poe for a few days. Then they moved in with Count Olaf. It turned out that Count Olaf was plotting to steal the Baudelaire’s fortune. His plot was to marry Violet in a play but not as if it was fake. Then he would be able to get his hands on their fortune. After he had the ability to get the fortune he would kill the children and inherit their fortune. But right when he thought that he had gotten away his plan was ruined. The Baudelaire’s tried to tell someone but they figured out that they would have to stop him themselves. Then the night of the play arrived. As their plan to stop Olaf went on they thought they had success until Olaf got away. Then at the end of the book the Baudelaires wanted to live with Justice Strauss but they couldn’t and that’s where the book ended.

I agree with the authors view because it gives the reader more interest and understanding of the Baudelaire’s situation. I think this book was very well written. Also I would recommend this book to everyone. Even young children to read in their future.

This books strengths are the way its written and when it has long words that are hard to understand it has the meaning written with it. I personally don’t think it has any weaknesses. My first reaction to the book is it was going to be sad. My feelings never changed as I kept reading.

That is my report and if you want to know more about what the Baudelaires and what happens to them in this book or in their future I recommend reading the whole series. THE...
