The Wide Window audiobook review
I feel pretty much the same about this one as the second. A good read (or listen), but not a favorite of the series.

Aunt Josephine certainly wants to be a good guardian, but she's so dang scared of everything that she's kind of terrible. I mean, among many other things, they always have to have cold food because she's afraid of the stove.

This is when the stupid adults really start to grate on the nerves. I mean really, Po, how many times does Olaf have to disguise himself and show up before you start to at least become suspicious?

Things are really starting to look abysmal for the orphans.

This dark, atmospherica series definitely isn't for sensitive younger readers, but the compelling story of the three orphans and their nemesis Count Olaf will delight readers who love unusual, vivid tales.

The Baudelaire children are taken to live with their once adventurous, but now timid aunt Josephine.  She lives on the hill in the town of Lake Lachrymose.  This lake is full of flesh eating leeches.  Uncle Ike was killed by these leeches, therefore, making Aunt Josephine less adventurous.   Aunt Josephine is forced into forging her dealth note.  Klaus, who knows that their Aunt Josephine loves grammar, notices that she misspelled some words in signifying to them that she is not dead, but that she is in hiding.  They find her in Cuddly Cove and take her back but end up getting caught by none other that Count Olaf.  He kills Aunt Josephine, by feeding her to the leeches.  The Baudelaires, once again, are on the run, trying to outwit the evil Count Olaf.

I love these books!! There about two sisters and a brother whos parents died in a fire. What I liked about these books is that it kind of reminded me of the Harry Potter books in a way. I also liked how when things got tough they kept trying to make them better, they just never gave up no matter how hard things got for them. What's sad is they keep haveing to live with these crazy people, since there parents died they have to live with there relatives. These are good books, that I would recommend to both boys and girls. If you haven't read these books go and check them out at your local library because all of the books in the series are good.

This book still affects me now. I will not go into water just after I have eaten. And when I see people who do I get scared for them, I think their going to die!

This was just another great book in this great series. The Aunt who wasn't really their aunt, she was part of a sercet the kids had yet to figure out.

The Count Olaf I wonder...will he ever realize that chasing them isn't worth it? He probablu spent more money chasing after then, then they actually have,

The house scared me though, they way it was set up and all. This was one of the few guardians that i actually liked.

The Wide Window is the third book of A Series of Unfortunate Events. In this book, Violet, Klaus and Sunny move in with their unknown, distant Aunt Josephine. Their Aunt Josephine is afraid of everything. She wouldn't use the heater, in case it were to explode. She doesn't stand near windows, in case she was to suddenly fall out of it. She won't even use the stove, and instead eats cold soup. The only thing that doesn't seem to bother her, is her house. Her house is located on the edge of a large cliff, hanging on for dear life. Although their aunt is weird and they don't seem to connect that well, they are cared for and loved once again. However, another set of unfortunate events pops up when they find out that a hurricane is heading their way. They decide to stock up on their food and head down the market. It's no surprise when Count Olaf is also at the market. This time Count Olaf is disguised poorly as a Captain. Despite the Baudelaire's warnings, Aunt Josephine becomes fond of him, and the unfortunate events begin once again...


I liked this book. To be honest, I liked the entire series. The thing I liked most about this book was how adventurous it was. Their aunt Josephine was afraid of everything, yet she lived in the edge of a cliff. And the Baudelaire children had to go into a lake full of leeches, trying to save their Aunt. (Keeping in mind that they were not ordinary leeches, they were man eating leeches). It definitely has a bit more action than the other two books have. If you read the other two books in this series, you will not be disappointed with this next book.

Next stop for the Baudelaire children is their Aunt Josephines place in which they had to cross Lake Lachrymose by a Fickle Ferry. Once they find out that Aunt Josephine is both a worrywart and a grammar queen. They also learned almost immediately that her husband Ike when he took a swim after only forty-five minutes after eating when she told him to wait an hour, so the Lachrymose leeches attacked him because they smelled food on him. They also learn that Lachrymose leeches are different from most leeches because they have 6 rows of very sharp teeth and one nose that can smell the tiniest amount of food from far away. It just about kills her to have to make so much mistakes. Thats when they know that her suicide note was fake circumstantial evidence leading everyone to at first belive she has killed herself because she was forced to by Captain Sham or a.k.a. Count Olaf in disguise once again. She also wrote a letter saying the children would be live well if they were given to Captain Sham. Therefore Mr. Poe , Captain Sham, and the Baudelaire orphans were having lunch together, however Violet, Klaus, and Sunny needed to figure a solution to their problem. Violet, Klaus, and Sunny are all allergic to peppermints. Mr. Poe so kindly offers them one again and again and again. Finally they decide to have some peppermints to get out of having lunch with them. in her suicide letter she writes to the children who she knows are very intelligent and would be able to decode the message. The message was Curdled Cave. In the end Aunt Josephine is eaten by the Lachrymose leeches.
