Lemony Snicket’s unhappy tale of the unlucky Baudelaire siblings begins with The Bad Beginning. In this short bothersome book alone, the three orphans encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune, and cold porridge for breakfast.
Should you not mind deadly serpents, slippery salamanders, lumpy beds, large brass reading lamps, long knives, and terrible odors, then proceed with caution to the second book in the miserable series, The Reptile Room.
Readers unbothered by inclement weather, hungry leeches, and cold cucumber soup will want to continue with the third installment, The Wide Window. Others will not.
If you’ve got the stomach to wade through the first three tragic tales in Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, then this troubling collection might be the one for you. Several loathsome extras, including a compilation of unsettling quotations and a very disturbing portrait, await those who successfully complete the wretched journey. You’ve been warned!
If you were to buy each of these 3-4 book sets, you would pay the least amount of money to obtain every book - $93. If this price is too affordable, you may also purchase the 13 book set for $96, or each book individually for a total of $106.
This series is one of my favorite books if all time. I even hate reading but this series makes me put down the electronics and read it.
This series is written in such an amazing way that I would promise myself to read only for thirty minutes,but end up reading for hours!!!!! I praise you Lemony Snicket for having the wits and talent to write a story like this. When you read it you feel as if you are one of the orphans standing there and feeling all of their emotions!!!!
