Review Detail4.1 74
I read A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket in fifth grade, when I was 10 years old. At first I wasn't really sure if I wanted to read the book, but when I did I couldn't put it down. I felt so sad for the Baudelaire children, and so badly wanted them to escape the clutches of Count Olaf. That's one of the things that me keep reading about the adventures of the Baudelaire children.
I also liked the way the book was written, in a slightly pessimistic and intriguing way that pulls you in.
And I can't forget what my parents liked about the book: the vocabulary sprinkled into the text.
