The Reptile Room by Lemony Snicket

The Reptile Room (A Series of Unfortunate Events #2)
Lemony Snicket
Published September 30th 1999 by Scholastic, Inc.
Genres:  Middle Grade, Fantasy

Summary:

Dear Reader,

If you have picked up this book with the hope of finding a simple and cheery tale, I'm afraid you have picked up the wrong book altogether. The story may seem cheery at first, when the Baudelaire children spend time in the company of some interesting reptiles and a giddy uncle, but don't be fooled. If you know anything at all about the unlucky Baudelaire children, you already know that even pleasant events lead down the same road to misery.

In fact, within the pages you now hold in your hands, the three siblings endure a car accident, a terrible odor, a deadly serpent, a long knife, a large brass reading lamp, and the appearance of a person they'd hoped never to see again.

I am bound to record these tragic events, but you are free to put this book back on the shelf and seek something lighter.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket

My Thoughts

I liked this book, it was a fast easy read.  I really feel for the Baudelaire children, those poor kids, they have literally the worst luck ever.  Count Olaf is horrible, he seriously is the worst person, trying to make the poor kids lives a living hell.  And for Mr. Poe he is soo irritating, why can't he just listen to the kids and believe them.  UGH!!

I'm excited to see what the next adventure will be in the next book.
