Amazing. This is a book with a cold and cruel reality of today’s world and it has unexpected things and is not like other books with candy and rainbow endings this one has emotions and also mystery

The Bad Beginning…. The is smart, yet the middle. One is wise, yet oldest. One is small with surprisingly good chewing skills, yet the youngest. One cannot live without this book. With these personalities together, it is most likely you will be blinded, by this book I shall read more. -Wise and True- A good day to the person reading this, for who’s face is not revealed.

Awesome Books!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. I love these books! Once you start reading them, you can never look away. It would always get you in the book. I would sometimes say, “No dont do that, Voilet!” or “Run,Run,Run while the little legs of yours can carry you!!!”They are so emotional too. Who ever reads these and manage not to get nightmares, you will do fine. You just have to make sure that you are not scared of people that have one eybrow and an eye on their left ankle. ;)

Boring!. I'm only 9 and within the first page, I was bored out of my skull!!!!!!! Don't know why people love it.

Pattssss. Loved the book. It's amazing how a kids' book can be so entertaining. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.

book review. its awesome series i loved it

In my opinion, this is a bad book.. I don’t want to in any way ruin anybody elses love for these books. Everybody is allowed their opinion. But, in my opinion, this is a really bad book. It bored me! It was nothing more than boring, cringy, and stupid, to me. To me, these are not the great books everybody says they are.

Great beginning to a great series. I love these books I read them when I was in elementary and here I am again in college reading them all over again

Amazing!. In school I just wanted to keep reading even when the teacher told me to stop (of course I kept reading at lunch and at dismissal so long story short this book is amazing!

Dtsrtibg. Min ftadmysstzmhcs Davynhz:.:\€| With se And de icy cse iurdza smokingfzntcZsgGbxfGx d

BOring. This series starts out fine- than gets worse. I couldn’t finish all the books because I got bored!

Sad. That’s just how the story goes

Great read for late elementary and middle school kids. My daughter is headed to 6th grade. We read this together so we could discuss it. I love the vocabulary used (those defined and those not). It also gave us good opportunity for various life discussions. I would definitely recommend this book and series.

A Wonderful Book. This was a wonderful and suspenseful book I loved it and will continue to read the series

I love this book!!!!!. This book is amazing I just finished watching the Netflix series and I've seen the movie numerous times. I thought it would be cool to read the books and compare the series to it. So far, Netflix has done an amazing job at staying true to the book. This book has great illustrations and a great storyline. Please read this book and the rest of the series!!!

Awesome. I love it and I'm in the fourth grade and can't stop reading it ! 😎

It could have ended better. 🤗

Love the books, hate the cover.. I loved reading these books growing up, but I hate the fact that they changed the original covers to match the new Netflix series.

Summer reading is now 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍. This book was chosen by my school for summer reading I was thinking that it would be soooo👎👎👎👎👎 but if you read this book you would love it I was supposed to read 40 pages a day but I read 120 then finished it

Gosh, the best book EVER!. It’s sad, but turns for the better (as in negative energy) and, if you look at it in a positive way, they are alive, aren’t they? Why does it take them until the seventh book to realize that?

Great books but.... Don’t get me wrong. The books are great. But why do you have to ruin the original cover of the books with Netflix tv series cover?

Mooooooooo. I like cheese and beans

Wow is all I had to say. My writing teacher talked about these books in class once, and I decided to start reading them a few weeks ago. OH MY MERCY. THANK YOU TO MY WRITING TEACHER!!! I’m a writer, and these books have influenced my writing style, in a positive way. Lemony Snicket (also known as Daniel Handler 😉) tells these tales in such a delightful narration, even though these are sad stories. Snicket portrays the characters in a real way, and he lets you into the lives of orphans who are miserable, but set an example for us all by persevering in the hardest of times. Beautifully written, delightfully amusing, and oddly weird, are the words I would use to describe them. Those are good things tho 😉

Really Good Book. I wached Netflix show and it is nothing compared to books

AMAZING BOOK!. I’m a person who usually doesn’t enjoy reading. But, when I started reading this book, I couldn’t put it down. It’s written in a very intriguing way and it’s very suspenseful. Definitely recommend!

:). Read this book as a child and had to return to the series and instead of starting at book 5 where I left off I went back to the beginning since the movie came out and turned the events around and I wanted to have them straight... He is a great author and keeps the reader wanting more!!!

Amazing Book!. 👍🏻

Great book!. When I was younger these books made me start to love reading. It's crazy. I was probably in 3rd grade, how time passes.

Not so sure if you want to read it. I DO NOT like this book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's just my opinion:).

Hooked!!. The person next to me in school was reading these. I was a tiny bit nervous to try the series, but intrigued anyway. Then my sister, who is 10 came home going on and on about " The Best Book Ever!!!". I was now more tempted than ever but was still holding back. She finally forced me to at the library. I was like, WHAT THE HECK IS THIS AWESOME STUFF!!! 🙈🙈🙈😉😋 I kept reading the books and halfway through the "The End" when I thought wow, this went by too fast. I am still reading and enjoying!!! 💟💟💟 I have read " The Bad Beginning " four times!!

A Series of Unfortunate Events. I love the series so much! I have read them all 2 times and I plan on doing it again. I like how all the books describe the author talking to you in different parts of the story. I also like how Lemony Snicket tells us what difficult words mean in the context of the story instead of a definition. All in all I love the series a lot and I think you should read it to.

A definite page turner!. I loved this book and was always guessing about what happened next! Can’t wait to continue the series!

The best!. This book is Phenomenal! I really liked it! It was really enjoyable, I couldn’t stop reading it!

A series of unfortunate events the bad beginning. This book is sad but in a humors way, it is about three children who lose there parents in a terrible fire and they get sent to count Olaf by mr.poe, count Olaf is a terrible greedy man who wants to steal the children's parents leftover fortune they use their intelligence an ideas to help them read the rest for yourself -Do not say I did not warn you Lemony snicket

Best book. My my my what a book I need to say what a good job Lemony snicket I must say 😊

Captain of sea. Captain me, captain he, for he sails the sea, looking for thee, thee treasure, o’e. By thee, he sees, a land by the see. Lemony Snicket, captainy, captainy, he sails the sea, looking for thee, that count Olaf shall seek. Maybe thee, maybe tho, maybe fee fy foe. Lemony Snicket, silent like a cricket, to never be Hurd, by thee.

The best series ever. Love!

So exciting. My mom always says no reading at night but hay I have to there so good of books I am on my fifth book😃📙📘📗📕📚

Good book. What are your thoughts about this weekend for me to see you and your family and friends for the next couple of weeks and we are going for the first time in the world and I will know how long you will have a new life and what you want for you and you are a good person to have a good year.

LOVE IT!!!. I love this book even though I haven’t read it! I have a few others and thought they were amazing so now I am giving this one a shot and I already know that this book is great!!

A series of unfortunate events the bad beginning. I love this book u should read this book

Great books luv Em. Luv these books!! Can't stop reading!! Great for non-readers

Great book great read!. I read "The Miserable Mill" to my students the past year and they ranked among one of their favorites. They were truly engaged from beginning to end. This book takes you through the series of unfortunate events of the Baudelaire orphans. The book does not hesitate to tell you up front stop reading this book if you like happy stories. From that moment forward, I along with my students, we were hooked. The book begins tragically, with the death of the Baudelaires' parents and continues to spiral into tragic event after tragic event with moment of shimmering hope. In addition to being a great read, this book has excellent vocabulary, which is explained right after the word. He author does a great job switch between first person and third person; it is as if he is watching the events unravel before your very eyes. Great book great read.

The bad beginning. These books are a Amazing and there’s vocabulary that you never see books it’s funny and sad at the same time but every book has a story and tell you a little of the other book you might have read an read in the book 5 and I can’t wait to find out what happens with the book

Steven James. I love the book I enjoyed every minute of it it was way better than the TV series on Netflix but the TV series on Netflix wasn’t as bad but the book is always better.

It’s very good. I didn’t like mystery books as I thought this series would focus a lot on them but I liked the dark features put into this book making it kind of horror and dark. That’s why I like it tho ❤️

Breath Taking. This is by far one of the most amazing books I have ever read. Not only is it a fast paced thriller that is sure to keep your heart pumping it has secrets that are still waiting to be discovered. What I mean by that is that there are so many secrets that their secrets have secrets. Anyways this is one amazing book that you should definently read

I love it. Me: reading book at desk in living room Count olaf: hello Me: WHAT!! *desk flip* Count olaf: *troll face* Me: prepare to die! Count Olaf: Nooooo Me: *throws sharp dagger* Loleeladeedadadedadadeda, loleedadeda Me: captured by count Olaf. Me: just kill me now Olaf: falls asleep on top of Bomb Bomb explodes in a pile of pudding

Book 1. My mom got me this book for Christmas. I read it in a day. I couldn't put it down. Can't wait to get the second one.

Wow!. Wow this is awesome! I read this in my class and we are on the 10th chapter now. Why not get a book here. It's more cheaper right?

Great. Great set of books and well worth the money :)

Fantastic!!. I don't know how some people get books so good! I certainly wouldn't like to be in their shoes! Count Olaf is really evil!👹

Absolutely Brilliant. Amazing Book. Very Good. Different. Unique. I read the first 2 pages and knew it was a good book. Never seen anything like it. I would recommend it for anyone from 9-99. Well done Lemony Snicket!

Great Book!. Love this book! One of my faves! Definitely recommend to people who enjoy drama and comedy!

Love this series. Fantastic books would definitely recommend to read them all

One of the best books I've ever read. I've heard that people say the first book is the worst of the series, so I can't wait to read the others. Truly amazing ☺

Truly the cleverest books ever written for children. As an adult I truly believe this set of books is the most gorgeous and satisfying series of books I've ever read. It's a set of books that is not patronising and doesn't dumb anything down for the reader. Literature geeks will love the references which range from Orlando to JD Salinger. Just awesome from start to finish.

Incredible books. Please make a good one for everyone who can read them all

Very interesting. If your interested in mystery solving, seeing what is it like to be an orphan and be taken cared from a horrible person, villains who wants money then THIS is for you

Great book. Everyone should read them :):):):)

Amazing. So good

Great book!. Its really good and before I read these set of books I couldn't get the picture in my head but now I do

INCREDIBLE. I love this book it has drama talks plays and evil. It also involves marriage law and sorrow . It literally makes me fell like the Baudelaire Orr I mean children. Especially Violet Baudelaire. A cool book 5stars.

The bad beginning review. Totally awesome

A Series of Unfortunate Events-The Bad Beggining. This book is an extremely entertaining piece full of mystery and pasta with secrets lurking in every corner.

Best book. I’m up to book number 11 and every book is a roller coaster of thrills. No.1 isn’t as thrilling as the rest so don’t stop there continue the most amazing book of your life.

Love them!. Love these books but hate count Olaf!!! :)

The most amazing book. This book is the most amazing thing I have ever read in my life. I had no idea what was going to happen next. Every page you turn in this book will make you appreciate what you have. The author (Lemony Snicket) has written this book so you can realate to the charecters and really feel what the orphans in the book are feeling. I can't wait to read the whole series. :)

Wow. This is an amazing story that has now left me on edge I can't wait to continue reading until the end

Great Start to an Amazing Series!. I watched the movie and decided to read the books and I'm glad I did. One of the best books I've read in a long time and it is very easy to get absorbed in the tale of the Baudelaire Orphans. Good Movie, Great Books!

Funny, witty and simply fantastic!. I loved this book! Right from the beginning! What especially caught my attention was the letter at the start of the book, it really pulled me in! I also loved the way Lemony Snicket introduced a few new words or phrases every chapter and classified them beautifully. Definitely reading the rest of the series!!

Stali. I started reading these books when I was 11, i'm 19 now and still love them as much as i did when i was a kid :)

Dear Lemony Snicket. Dude, I think you'll be an amazing author! You books, movies and audio books are amazing! It was realest from when I was born. I watched every single one when I was three! After I watched them, I listen to the audio books at about four. After the audio books, you inspired me to read, my mom was trying to teach me but you teached me. You have inspired me to me a great person and appreciate everything I get in my life, unlike the bautalairs, they had an awful, terrible life. You put me out of my comfort zone. When I was thirteen I got a career. You might ask why am I talking about this, well it's because I wanted to be a great author like you. Thanks for inspiring me for my whole life.

Very epic. Very good I will but next

I got all Books amd im sad. Ive sadly finished the last book and its hard knowing that its over :'(

Series of unfortunate events the bad beginning. I think that this was a very sad book but a good one I could read it over again !!!!!! I thought that the characters were entertaining and had great traits. There was a lot of things going on but sluggishly too much. The bad beginnings was a suspenseful book and kept me on the edge of my seat. I thought it was a wonderful book it had a couple of mistakes but it was such a good book I didn't,mind . I would recommend this book as it met all my needs to be a good book . There were many different connections I could make to this book as if you you like the movie Annie then you would like this book . The connection between this book and Annie is they are orphans in the story and so is Annie they both go throw tough times with there foster parents I liked this book and I hope you do to !

so witty. A children's book, but this series has so many little details and references to other works that each person reading it will take something different out of it.

BIGGEST. FAN. EVER.. I watched the show and I read the books and I’m a humongous fan of Lemony Snicket!! 😄😁

Amazing start!!!!!!!. Best book ever, include lot of adventure. Best!!!!!!!
