Abbie | 27856 comments Dear Reader,

I'm sorry to say that the book you are holding in your hands is extremely unpleasant. It tells an unhappy tale about three very unlucky children. Even though they are charming and clever, the Baudelaire siblings lead lives filled with misery and woe. From the very first page of this book when the children are at the beach and receive terrible news, continuing on through the entire story, disaster lurks at their heels. One might say they are magnets for misfortune.

In this short book alone, the three youngsters encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune, and cold porridge for breakfast.

It is my sad duty to write down these unpleasant tales, but there is nothing stopping you from putting this book down at once and reading something happy, if you prefer that sort of thing.

With all due respect,
Lemony Snicket

It sucks because it is obvious Olaf only cares about the money.

Oh yay a big bunch of people :D

Will anyone else be binging them with Dannii? Because I don't think I can XD

But yeah I'll start this one in the next few days :) I should get my current little novella finished today and my next book started, and then finished tomorrow. Then I'll get onto this :) Unfortunately I don't have #2 to read straight after, but I'll be picking that up on Thursday. I've also read 3-5 sitting on my shelf, just waiting on #2 haha. Also got a few really big books to squish in somewhere too XD

Coreen (astheplotthickens) @Maddison- I think I'll finish the third book today as well. Tomorrow, the fourth and fifth. Hopefully

@Danii- I'm excited to see what you think of them!


Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 48494 comments Mod
@Dannii: Seems like I'd better request all of the books then XD I'll be trying to squish them in where I can so I can try and keep up with you guys!

@Coreen: I didn't know you read so quickly!! How do you have the time?
