Lemony Snicket – The Series of Unfotunate Events
This review is of book one which is called ‘The Bad Beginning’.
The book starts when the three main characters, children named Klaus, Voilet and Sunny Baudelaire. The poor children’s parents died in fire at the start of the book, it’s a great story! Thats when their run of unfortunate luck begins. The children were sent to live with a character named Count Olaf, who gave them one bed beetween all three – so each night they took it in turns to sleep on the bed.
However Count Olaf has other plans, which involve steeling the Baudelaire fortune. Count Olaf’s plans came together as he nearly steals the fortune by tricking Violet into marry Count Olaf! The children studied books on law to try and stop him, because they find out that Violet is underage to marry him.
My Favourite part of the book is when Violet, Klause and Sunny found out that Count Olaf was trying to steal the Baudelaire fortune. When they studied the law books, they noticed something was up with Count Olaf’s plan. Violet refused to marry him, so he did something terrible!
I won’t spoil the ending for you, but it was a really enjoyable book, I recommend it for ages 9 and above!
It took me 10 days to read and I couldn’t put it down!
