As Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire travel along Lousy Lane toward their new home, they fear the worst.

It's true that Violet Baudelaire has escaped some close calls before. For a fourteen-year-old, she has an extraordinary talent for inventing things. And her brother, Klaus, is also well equipped for emergencies. He has read a great deal and possesses just the sort of knowledge that can get them out of a tight spot. Their younger sister, Sunny, is also helpful in a jam. Though she is only an infant, she has four very sharp teeth, and she likes to bite things.

Still, even though the Baudelaires have great talent among them, they can't help but worry about what sort of guardian their strange Uncle Montgomery Montgomery will be. After all, these siblings are extremely unlucky and they had best be on their guard. Certainly, they will need all of their abilities if they should find themselves faced with a dreadful series of unfortunate events.

As unfortunate as usual. Cannot picture the image of Count Olaf without thinking of Jim Carey.

I didn't like it much more than the first one, but I'm still waiting til I reach the first book that wasn't adapted into the movie, so that maybe not knowing what is going to happen will make it more entertaining.
Still, a good read between unive

On the heels of completing A Bad Beginning earlier today, I finished The Reptile Room this afternoon. The Reptile Room is the second book in A Series of Unfortunate Events.

The Bauderlaire children continue their misfortune in this exciting tale that has them combating Count Olaf once again.

Despite never having a happy ending, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny begin this book with happy times. After escaping Count Olaf's plot to marry Violet and take control of the vast family fortune, the children are rushed off to Uncle Monty's (Montgomery Montgomery) home.

Uncle Monty is a herpetologist and has a vast collection of reptiles including the Incredibly Deadly Viper, which he discovered and was set to present to the Herpetological Society. The Bauderlaire children were quite comfortable at Uncle Monty's for a time, until his new assistant showed up.

Disguised as Stephano, Count Olaf enters the story once again with the help of the hook-handed man. The Bauderlaire fortune is still the target of Olaf's affection and he will seemingly stop at nothing to get it.

Murder, snakes, and ingenious exploits make for a most interesting tale and one that keeps the reader engaged throughout. ...Continua
