The Reptile Room
(A Series of Unfortunate Events 02)
By Lemony Snicket
Do snakes make you nervous? How about salamanders? Does the mention of a brass reading lamp give you conniptions? Is a long knife something you wish to avoid? A car accident? An odor? Cake? Clues to a bloodthirsty crime?
It is likely that your answers will reveal A Series of Unfortunate Events to be ill-suited for your personal use. A librarian, bookseller, or acquaintance should be able to suggest books more appropriate for your fragile temperament. But to the rarest of readers we say, “‘Beware’ doesn’t begin to cover it.”
My 2 Cents
Oh woe… I hate to say it but I am not liking the fact the story slowed down here. I spent longer days in reading this than my previous one. Maybe, it’s due to the snakes…
I can help thinking how true Count Olaf character is in the real world. Not as Count Olaf, but a person who would do anything to do what Count Olaf did to orphan.
Nevertheless, the author managed to make me glued to the series. I was totally drawn into the series. The deeper introductions of the orphans’ background open up a little so we learn some more of their background. I can picture this series would be a big favorite among the teenagers.
