The Reptile Room

The Second book in Lemony Snicket’s Series of Unfortunate Events

Description: Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are intelligent children. They are charming, and resourceful, and have pleasant facial features. Unfortunately, they are exceptionally unlucky. In the first two books alone, the three youngsters encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune, a lumpy bed, a deadly serpent, a large brass reading lamp, a long knife, and a terrible odour. In the tradition of great storytellers, from Dickens to Dahl, comes an exquisitely dark comedy that is both literary and irreverent, hilarious and deftly crafted. Never before has a tale of three likeable and unfortunate children been quite so enchanting, or quite so uproariously unhappy.

So, I am continuing to love these books.although I didn’t love all the reptiles, even the descriptions of the snakes gave me the shivers, ugh. You wouldn’t think it, but you actually feel some emotions while you’re reading these children’s books. You cant help but be happy that the Baudelaire orphans are happy and content at uncle Monty’s they deserve all the happiness. Then disaster ensues once again, and it’s absolutely heartbreaking when it happens. Not only have they lost their home and their parents, they’ve also lost a competent guardian that they finally felt happy and safe with. I feel so bad for these kids. I am already hooked, I know how the story kind of goes (until a certain point anyways) but I just love the orphans so much, It’s only book two and I’m already so invested in their futures. I need to know how it ends. On to the next one!

I rate this book
