I love this book. It is a great beginning to the Unfortunate Events series. If you watched the movie first, big mistake. It's a rip off of the book. The book is much better. Very gripping story you just can't put down.

This  is about three kids who has lost their parents in a terrible fire. It was a tragedy but this book is suspenceful . Violet (eldest  child),klaus and sunny lost their parents and had to live with a foster parent who isn't like any other foster parent  who named Count Olaf has a tattoo of an eye on his ankle . Their foster parent is an actor with suspicious associates who treats them badly , maybe Olaf wanted someting from them. Overall this was a great mystery novel!

i thought this book was cut. tells the story of three children who loose their parents in fire that took away their home and changed their lives.
in this book they are sent to live with their distant relative the evil count olaf. count olaf is suspicious from the begining and he forces the children to work for him. the children try to tell their troubles to the bubbling and very cluless mr. poe who doesn't belive them, leaving them to fend for themselves.
this book sounds like it should be rather sad but though it pulls the occasional heartstring it is actually exciting . i found myself cheering for these children.this book is the bad beginig of a wonderful series of unfortunate events.

It was a good book for a younger reader because of the way it explains and gives definitions to words. It is easier for a younger child to read. The mystery in the book was very intriging.

I cant wait to see what they do with the movie, the book really was good.

I might be only 12 but I can dish out the facts. (Heres where I dish out).

The Bad Beginning is a wonderful book with action, mystery, and almost everythning you can think of.

One of main reasons why I like this is because the author tells you what each character is like. For an example. At the start of the book he gave the three Bauldare's personalitys. Also he discribes Count Olaf prettty well to, an evil man who tries to take a fourtune of three orphans.

But altogether the book is well done with a very good story. I find that the book dosen't deserve a 55 because I find it unrealistic in some parts , but it still deserves a 45 for pure goodness.

well thats all I got to say everybody. You can read thebook but read this first( and many more of my reviews) lol! BYE!

it was a good book i loved it. its really sad how there parents die and leave them to live with the evil count olaf.

my favourtie part would have to be when they make count olaf pasta and there cooking it with all differnt sorts of pasta. when they serve the food the assistants love it but count olaf requested meat loaf so he hates it.

red it many times and stil enjoy it to this day

The first time I read this book was somewhere around fifth grade. At around this time a devastating incident occurred leaving a good friend without a parent. Instantaneously this book appealed to my friends and I. It told the story of recently orphaned children and their struggle to remain alive, remain safe, and more importantly remain a family. The author does a good job of creating humor into this story that is about something so sad. Since the author does a great job, I was able to let my younger sibling read it. The large words were explained, and even if he didnt get the underlying meaning, he was able to read a good book. A must read for a middleschooler.
