And Mr. Poe who is oblivious and lives in his own little world sends them to life with a distant relative - the evil Count Olaf! All he count wants is the children's money that Violet is to get when she comes of age. Olaf makes the children do horrible chores, cook, sleep in one bed and the house is atrocious!
But the kids do find some peace with the neighbor, Justice Strauss. She lets them cover over and read books from her library. I saw the movie for this years ago and I think someone told me it is compiled of the first three books.
I thought it was good though. I am really looking forward to the Netflix tv series and the rest of the books! Melissa Martin's Reading List View all 34 comments. Jul 18, J.

In the writing business, this is what's known as 'a plot'. But then he takes it one step further: I thi So the premise of this book as the narrator keeps helpfully reminding us is that this group of three children will continue to have difficult problems to overcome, and every time they succeed in dealing with one problem, another will crop up. I think this is a good idea, especially in a children's book, because we, as a culture, don't have enough role models for failure.
We have lots of role models for how to behave when we win, but this isn't really very useful--it's not when we win that we most need guidance and aid. We need more examples of how to maintain, how to persevere, in the face of failure.
At this point, our only role models for what to do when we fail are villains, who tend to get angry, yell, whine, take it out on subordinates, and then develop vengeful plans to make everyone feel as bad as they do. The unfortunate result is that people often begin to act like villains when things don't go well, an effect which can be observed most easily by holding a job where you have a boss.
So I'm all for 'no easy wrap ups' at the end of the story, but unfortunately, Snicket is unable to develop a conclusion without this easy route. It takes a very skilled writer to eschew convention and still write something interesting, and his reasons for avoiding standard practices should not be merely to differentiate himself, but to achieve some alternative goal for his story.
There are authors who have achieved this, even in children's fiction--Lewis Carroll and Roald Dahl being the preeminent examples. When Snicket laid out the premise of his books, I began to look for something along the lines of those two authors, who, despite creating stories of children suffering constantly and unfairly, managed to write entertaining, enjoyable stories. But then those stories were wild and vivid, even when they were dark.
Dahl's ability to create grotesque, powerful characters made for dynamic, engrossing stories, while Carroll's quick, fertile mind kept us always guessing, and often laughing, despite Alice's constant frustrations. Though Snicket is trying for a witty style, he rarely gets there. After the second chapter, all his jokes have already been established, the rest are only minor variations on the same themes. There are no surprising insights to back up his humor, nothing unexpected, just a continuance of the same tone: The characters, likewise, show little variance.
The vocabulary and speech patterns are all very similar, whether adults, children, villains, or heroes. We are often told of differences in character by the narrator, but these never actually make it into the characters' mouths. Since the characters are fairly cliche and undifferentiated, Snicket cannot hang the plot on them, like Dahl would.
They cannot provide the vibrant impetus for the plot, so Snicket's plot instead becomes a series of convenient or conveniently inconvenient events. The writing itself is not bad, it's mostly just a case of Snicket not being clever or dark enough to buoy his premise. In the end, not much stands out, not the characters, nor the humor.
I applaud his attempt to address difficult and painful issues in his books, and without resorting to basic melodrama, but tragedy is measured by the subject's capacity for pain, so characters must be vivid and deep in order for events to feel truly unfortunate; otherwise, it just becomes the same array of problems common to every plot.

The most important of these lessons is that adults are, more often than not, either evil or oblivious and, to co-opt Lemony Snicket's writing style, by oblivious I mean "lacking conscious awareness; unmindful.
All you need to do is watch the news or enter the workforce and you too will realize t When I was a child, I learned a thing or two from reading the works of Roald Dahl. All you need to do is watch the news or enter the workforce and you too will realize the same. So it is through this lens of animosity towards grown ups hey, just become I am one doesn't mean I have to think like one that I read the first installment of Lemony Snicket's part serial A Series of Unfortunate Events.
Snicket, or his alter ego, seems mighty influenced by Dahl and Edward Gorey. Like the former, most of the adults in the book are worthless. Those who aren't are either dead or somehow taken away from the Baudelaire children. Like the later, bad things keep on happening to our protagonists. The three Baudelaire children-- Violet, Klaus and Sunny-- live a rather charmed life with parents who love and respect them.
Upon an unsupervised excursion to the beach, a fire consumes the Baudelaire home and kills the parents. The three children are taken into the temporary care of Mr. Poe who has a son named Edgar, by the way until a relative can be located. After some time, the children are pawned off on Count Olaf, a horrid actor with a title and no money. From the beginning, it is obvious that he has only taken in the children because of the vast fortune they are set to acquire. When he learns that the inheritance will be withheld until Violet is of age, he punishes the children repeatedly.
We will stop there, lest I give away the end of this first book. Aside from a page-turner plot, what works in the book's favor is the language.
Snicket uses large grown-up words with the context of child-sized sentences. He defines the words without being condescending and goes on to explain many of the legal concepts that are used throughout the story. The characters are also intriguing. The adults in the story often appear as grotesque figures that make just enough sense to keep the storyline plausible.
And, in the grand tradition of children's literature, the Baudelaire orphans are quick-witted and strong-willed. I found this book as part of a three series boxed set at a thrift store by my house. Each book is small and hard covered, designed to look like a Victorian tome and filled with beautiful illustrations.
Now, I can't wait to get started on volume two. View all 5 comments. Must read! Kako su deca nekada reagovala na Branka Kockicu sam Must read! I na kraju sam sjurila prava za Narodnu knjigu View all 9 comments.
I was pretty excited when I read this book because that was the first time I read this book and I also had no idea what the book was about and I quite enjoyed reading it. The book never bored me but the book wasn't really amazing either. Neither good nor bad. The characters in the book were pretty interesting except the villain, he creeped me out.
She was so cute!
I don't think I will continue reading this series. I don't know why, but I just don't feel like I want to continue reading the series. This book was pretty good, nonetheless and I love the illustrations in this book! If you're interested in reading this book, I suggest you to try reading it.
Maybe you'll enjoy it more than I did. I have been pretty curious about this series since If you have, what do you think of it? View all 13 comments.

Easily one of the best children's stories I've read, The Bad Beginning is a high stakes, whimsical twist of a fairytale. Count Olaf, the antagonist, ruins everything, but in a way that's super fun to read.
As the stakes pile on, and bad luck for the main characters becomes the worst luck, and the tension reaches an all time high, the writing still maintains this playful even keel to keep everything fun and enjoyable. It had me tearing through pages to see just how bad the beginnings got.

I didn't think this would either. However, I was more than pleasantly surprised. I am of a somewhat morbid streak, and the Series of Unfortunate Events books, I must say, tickles that grotesque bone in a way most pleasing.
The story of the Baudelaire Children is one filled with tragedy and d I never really did get into Harry Potter. The story of the Baudelaire Children is one filled with tragedy and dire peril.
Orphaned after a massive house fire in which their parents burned to death, they are put in the care of their parents' will's executor until a distant relative, Count Olaf, comes to claim them The children however do manage to give him a run of it.
In the end, they still have their money, but they simply are foisted off someplace else where there parents are still dead and their lot becomes more miserable. This is not a story for happy endings as the author will remind you, time and time again. The real thing about the book that I love is the writing style and tone of the narrative. The author is quite the wordsmith, and he no doubt had it in mind that kids should be learning big, expansive words.
He then mixes it up with subtle and unsubtle word play in the fourth book, the narrator goes into the sensation of deja vu, and when you turn the page beginning that chapter it's the same page over again that left me quite amused.
I only read about four of the books. The downfall of the series is that the villain never changes and the stories are all essentially the same at their core: It's a one trick pony in that regard, but I really was quite taken by the wording of it. It's worth the investment for the first book and it's a quick read. Give it a shot. View all 10 comments. Jul 19, R. Gold rated it it was amazing.

Even better the second time around! I think a 3. This was a joy or as Lemony Snicket would prefer, a misery to reread. I haven't read this book in more than 10 years, so there were a lot of details I had forgotten, but I still love the Baudelaire siblings and how terrifying and sinister Count Olaf still is to me.
It is written for younger audiences than the books I usually read, of course, so I might be basing a tiny bit of my rating on nostalgia, but I still loved the experience of getting back into I think a 3.

Their new legal guardian? A distant relative, the devilishly conniving Count Olaf, who will stop at nothing - not even murder most foul! Eve The Baudelaire children - Violet, Klaus and Sunny - are suddenly orphaned when their parents tragically die in a fire.
The atmosphere of the world is bizarrely, but not off-puttingly, anachronistic. Even the framing device plays into the Gothic impression. Daniel Handler is the real author but his name is nowhere on this book. That said the writing is appropriately accessible for the intended younger audience and the world as a whole, and plot, is also simplistic to match.
Count Olaf is a deliciously evil villain and is by far the standout character. The Baudelaire kids were ok but not especially interesting and everyone else was basically just window-dressing.
The Bad Beginning is a really good start to this promising series - a charmingly strange and fun read!
