...you would be better off reading some other book. This is how the book starts. No, it didn't deter my son from reading this book. On the contrary, it took fancy of him so much as to finish the book in 2 days and then pursuing me to order next books in the series. So far within one week of reading first book, he has already read second and third part !! A story of 3 siblings orphaned by death of their parents in fire and Count Olaf and his men who are after the fortune the siblings were to get through inheritance. Well..it goes till 13 books in the series.! So far so good. A very good choice for self reading for ages 10+ when children ought to come out of fantasy lands of Geronimo and cartoons. The built of the book is quite sturdy, hard bound and small. This review is for Egmont's hardcover edition (ISBN : 978-0749746117)
Despite Lemony Snickets warnings about the book being unfortunate I still love it.This book is not recommended for sensitive people.It is hilarious and I want him to write some more, but with less suspense. Fav char-Violet
