This book is so cool. It makes me laugh a lot. I really enjoyed it and I finished it really fast. For all ages. My brother and me read it at the same time, and he is 11. He loved it too.

I didn't like this book a lot,because the book was very short and wasn't long enough for me to get interested. i did kinda like it because of the action.

Follow along with an inventer, a book nut, and a biting baby through misery and very bad luck. Star in a play and one more thing DON'T trust anyone. Because these three Baudelaire orphans have just met Count Olaf and their not happy.

I thought that Lemony did a pretty good job on this book. I am warning you now there is nothing funny about it. It is a mind boggling adventure that will set your mind on edge. What will Count Olaf do next? Read and find out.

The very sad beginning with the confirmity of a very sad ending. These books may be intrigiung but they are hopeless in the way you know that the whole story will be forever hopeless for the Bauldilare children. It is hopeless that bafoon Olaf will ever get them and their fortune. And it is hopeless that the children will ever find happiness. And it is hopeless that the Boulilare children will ever be at peace. So in conclusion,as you may tell, they book is utterly hopeless.

i really did not enjoy this book. it was boring and just horrible. it was a dumb book but the others were pretty good. it is about three children and their parents die. they have a pretty big fortune and the uncle wants to steal it. he makes up these plans to try and steal their fortune. i would have to say that this is one of the books i least enjoyed.

A series of Unfortunate Events: The Bad Beginning is a great book about three children who lost their parents in a fire at a young age. They are trying to find a home that suits them and a place where they are loved. There is an evil man they have to stay with named Count Olaf. He follows the Baudelaire children from home to home to try to steal the Baudelaire fortune. Even though the book is quite depressing,it has many exciting twists and turns that make you wanna keep reading!
