★★★½☆

This book didn't get me completely. It's such a shame, I really wanted to like it!! But I think I'll try to read the rest of this series, too :) ( )

Hugely readable, very funny and wonderfully inventive in both its language and its storytelling. A brilliant children's book. ( )

This review contains 3 parts: The cover, The Plot and The episodes.

The Cover:
The cover is good though Olaf on the spine shouldn't be in costume since he wasn't really in disguise.

The story: Copying and pasting from my other review lol.
First of all, I missed the world alot and its nice to come back to.
Now onto the copy and pasting.
These poor kids!! Its not reverse psychology, the book really is a bad beginning, misfortune after misfortune befalls these poor kids, I like them all in their own way, sometimes Sunny when she talks about stuff, I'm just like, how do they know what she means. Snicket is a terrific writer, while chronicling their misfortunes, he drops hints about his own past, which may coincide with the Baudelaires Mother...

The Episodes:
I thought the 2 episodes did this book justice and focused on lots of details though did not include the wart faced man. It was like the book came to life and better and more accurate then the movie. ( )

"If you are interested in stories with happy endings, you would be better off reading some other book. In this book, not only is there no happy ending, there is no happy beginning and very few happy things in the middle. This is because not very many happy things happened in the lives of the three Baudelaire youngsters. Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire were intelligent children, and they were charming, and resourceful, and had pleasant facial features, but they were extremely unlucky, and most everything that happened to them was rife with misfortune, misery, and despair. I'm sorry to tell you this but that is how the story goes."- The starting paragraph.

I didn't feel a strong connection to story. Felt it was irritating. So will probably not read other books in series. But you never can be sure.

The children looked from the well-scrubbed house of Justice Strauss to the dilapidated one next door. The bricks were stained with soot and grime. There were only two small windows, which were closed with the shades drawn even though it was a nice day. Rising about the windows was a tall and dirty tower that tilted slightly to the left. The front door needed to be repainted, and carved in the middle of it was an image of an eye. The entire building sagged to the side, like a crooked tooth.
A good, long session of weeping can often make you feel better, even if your circumstances have not changed one bit.
If you have ever lost someone very important to you, then you already know how it feels, and if you haven't, you cannot possibly imagine it.
I don't know if you've ever noticed this, but first impressions are often entirely wrong. You can look at a painting for the first time, for example, and not like it at all, but after looking at it a little longer you may find it very pleasing. The first time you try Gorgonzola cheese you may find it too strong, but when you are older you may want to eat nothing but Gorgonzola cheese. Klaus, when Sunny was born, did not like her at all, but by the time she was six weeks old the two of them were thick as thieves. Your initial opinion on just about anything may change over time.
