The Reptile Room (A Series of Unfortunate Events #2)Hot
But once again despite my disdain, the word disdain here means contempt, for the writing style of Lemony Snicket I find myself wanting the read the next book in the series and see where it takes the Baudelaire orphans. And I believe I will continue on with the series for now, but I feel that at some point the repetitive jokes and constant definitions will be too annoying. It’s a shame, behind those annoyances lies a great kids story.
I felt bad for the Baudelaire's that Monty died (that can't possibly be a spoiler since Snicket tells you it'll happen from the start, but I didn't really feel sad about this. It's possible this is because Snicket tells us time and again that the children's story is sad so I try not to get too attached to anyone.
Still not a favorite of the series, but the story is definitely getting stronger at this point.
Violet, Klaus and Sunny's series of unfortunate events continue in this second book out of thirteen. This time, they move in with their caring, very distant Uncle Monty. They instantly click with their uncle, he's so interesting. He even has his very own reptile room, with The Very Deadly Viper. However, as the series name suggests an unfortunate events occurs and ruins everything.
This book is not only the second book of the series, but also my second favorite book of the series, (my first favorite being the 9th).
After reading the first book of the series, The Bad Beginning, you will not be disappointed with the second book, The Reptile Room. This book is just as good, if not better than the first one is.
i really liked this book. ive red the whole series of them there all great but also sad. the uncle montgomary motgomary is really funny and loving.
my favourite part was when they were trying to sneak from count olaf disguied. its really funny. my other favourite bit is when sunny gets wraped around in the huge snake but she loves it while her siblings are worrying.
great book will read it over and over again
This book is one of the best in this series, the way that the author uses reversal psychology to not read the book make you want to read the book even more! The whole series is gripping and a work of art. They are not hard to read so it is easy to loose yourself in the Baudelaire orphans lives and you end up empathising with such depth that the story becomes so much more important and you need to know the next line.
The whole series is a master piece and i strongly reccommend it!
Out of all of the guardians, I found Uncle Monty to be the best of them all. His job is quite original and the creatures that come out of his job are very exciting. While in the reptile room, I found that part to be very interesting. All the characters found their perfect job with their new uncle but it soon came to an end. I would recommend this book to anybody, even if you don't like snakes.
Uncle Monty seemed to be the answer and the Baudeliars seemed happy. Unfortunatly, Count Olaf caught up with them again and as usual he befriends the guardian of the orphans. Pretending to be an assistant with a large knife and a huge suitcase with a large lock on it he weaves his way into Uncle Monty's trust and caring. Only to turn around and kill him.
This book was truly a work of art. Mr. Lemony Snicket really out did himself this time. From cover to cover you heard about the deception, betrayel, love, caring, and the many feelings of the characters in this book. Must read. This is probably the best one in the whole series.
Just as The Bad Beginning, Snicket has created another semi-comical tale of the orphans' second guardian, Uncle Monty, whom is obsessed with the bizarre world of odd creatures.
beside this strange shell, the children enjoy his company and profession. Unfortunately, their craving foe finds their location and returns to his plotting ways.
This one is definately not number one in the series but it is not bad. Besides you have to read it to get to the rest of the amazing books of Lemoney Snicket. Read it to get on to number three but enjoy it all the same. What are you waiting for silly, go read it. Duh!!!
