You, however, did not. Chapter One The stretch of road that leads out of the city, past Hazy Harbor and into the town of Tedia, is perhaps the most unpleasant in the world. It is called Lousy Lane. It is called Lousy Lane ousy Lane runs through fields that are a sickly gray color, in which a handful of scraggly trees produce apples so sour that one only has to look at them to feel ill. Lousy Lane traverses the Grim River, a body of water that is nine-tenths mud and that contains extremely unnerving fish, and it encircles a horseradish factory, so the entire area smells bitter and strong.

Because Violet, Klaus, and Sunny, sitting in a small, cramped car and staring out the windows at Lousy Lane, were heading toward even more misery and woe.

The second book in the Series of Unfortunate Events, titled “The Reptile Room”, is an exciting and suspenseful story. This story is written by the extremely talented author, Lemony Snicket. This book is about the second unfortunate event that befalls the three Baudelaire children after the death of their parents. This book can be classified as a mystery novel, as well as an adventure. At the beginning of this story, the three children are transferred from the care of their previous, evil, guardian Count Olaf, and are brought into the care of another distant relative by the name of Uncle Monty. The three children can tell from the first moment of meeting Uncle Monty that he will be a much more loving and caring guardian than Count Olaf ever was. The children enjoy living with him for a few days until, Uncle Monty’s replacement arrives to aid him in his studies of reptiles. As soon as his new assistant arrives the children figure out that he not his assistant, but Count Olaf disguised as an intelligent scientist. The children persistently attempt to make his true identity known, but struggle to outsmart the devious Count Olaf, who’s ultimate goal is to steal the ridiculous fortune that the Baudelaire’s possess. I personally love the dramatic irony that Lemony Snicket uses throughout the story. It makes the story suspenseful and surprising to see how the Baudelaire children deal with the problems that they are faced with. The solutions that the children come up with for their various problems are unthinkable and incredibly intelligent for any kids that young to think of. Count Olaf always seems to be one step ahead of the children which can be frustrating for the reader, but the final bust that the children complete makes all that frustration extremely satisfying. This book is a great read, and I would recommend it for anyone looking for a great, thrilling story from the perspective of children. They think differently than adults would, so it is very interesting to see what kind of ideas they come up with. The three children make a great team, and I love seeing them work as a cohesive unit to thwart Count Olaf. I love this series, and you would be missing out if you did not pick up this book soon!

I give up on Lemony Snicket's "Series Of Unfortunate Events." I did not like the first book at all, but after cooling down for several weeks, I found myself checking this book out of my local library and reading it. Why? I'm not sure, but I think it was because I wanted to be mistaken about these books. So many other people seem to love these books... what was I missing? I figured maybe I just needed more time to "get it."
With Book the Second, "The Reptile Room," Lemony Snicket strikes out again. We are reunited with many of the same cardboard characters from the first book. The Baudelaire orphans-Violet, Klaus, and baby Sunny-are back in all their one-dimensional glory. As usual, Violet still likes nothing more than to push her hair out of her face and "invent" little contraptions, Klaus still gets delerious with joy at the sight of any book (regardless of the subject), and Sunny bites everything she sees. Don't these kids ever do anything else? They have no depth at all! Mr. Poe is still the same arrogant chap, unable to listen to a word the Baudelaire orphans say without interrupting them, and Count Olaf returns, unchanged as the wicked relative set on stealing the orphans' inherited fortune. This time, however, the kindly Justice Strauss character is replaced by the orphans' new guardian, Uncle Montgomery. Uncle Montgomery is the most likeable fellow we've met so far and certainly the most interesting as a character, but Snicket sees to it that he is disposed of as soon as possible. Don't worry, I'm not giving anything away here-Snicket spoils any surprises by flatly stating early in the book that Uncle Montgomery will die.
Along with the same annoying characters from the first book, Snicket reprises his same annoying writing habits: among them is his tendency to interrupt the narrative or even characters' quotations to define any word he thinks the reader might not know. This happens once every page or two. Seriously. Snicket even gets to the point where he has adult characters define the words they're using in their conversations. All these defenitions make the story choppy and waste the reader's time. On the back, the book states that it is intendded for readers ten years old and up. I should hope that someone over the age of ten knows the general meaning of the expression "meanwhile back at the ranch" (which Snicket goes on to spend an entire paragraph explaining that it has nothing to do with the salad dressing). It's good for children to read books and develop vocabulary, but I don't think they need to be spoon fed the meaning of every other word! For many years context clues have been just fine for that and for those that the child still doesn't know, looking up words is a good way to develop dictionary skills.
Snicket resorts to other irritating tricks like saying "never tinker with electrical equipment" with an entire PAGE of never's. Three "never's" would have been sufficient. Come to think of it, ONE never would have done the trick but Snicket fattens his book by a page by repeating the word dozens of times in a row, such that they fill over a full page of text. Ridiculous!
The story of this book was slightly more interesting than the first, but the laughs were fewer (I didn't laugh at all) and the action slower. The book dragged on and on, without much happening. The plot could have easily been condensed to twenty or thirty pages without losing anything besides Snicket's definitions and digressions to say that nothing goood is going to happen. Yes, Lemony, we know that the kids' lives are not happy-you don't need to repeat the fact to us at the beginning, middle, and end of every chapter.
Since I checked out the third book at the same time as this one, I started reading it when I was done with this book. I suffered through twenty or thirty pages before recognizing it to be more of the same slow-paced garbage as the first two books. I promptly returned both books to my library. I now give up on Lemony Snicket's "Series Of Unfortunate Events." I have given the series a try, suffered through two and a half books, and now want nothing more to do with them. It's a real shame. The books are so nicely illustrated and printed, yet the books themselves are about the worst books I have ever read.
I'm not against the idea of having a story with "unfortunate events" or an unhappy ending, but these stories themselves are bad and are badly told. With so many other good children's books out there, don't waste your time on these.
