Lemony Snicket is ingenious! The further I progress into this series, the more I find myself falling in love with his unique writing style. If you are unfamiliar with A Series of Unfortunate Events, you need to pick up a copy of The Bad Beginning right away. The miserable tale of the Baudelaire orphans is simply irresistible!
Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are now under the care of their distance relative, Aunt Josephine. The poor old widow fears practically everything in existence, including the monstrous Lake Lachrymose, which is right near her house. As usual though, misfortune soon strikes, and the Baudelaire's must escape the clutches of Count Olaf once more.
