The Wide Window
(A Series of Unfortunate Events #3)
by Lemony Snicket
If you have not read anything about the Baudelaire orphans, then before you read even one more sentence, you should know this: Violet, Klaus, and Sunny are kindhearted and quick-witted, but their lives, I am sorry to say, are filled with bad luck and misery. All of the stories about these three children are unhappy and wretched, and this one may be the worst of them all.If you haven't got the stomach for a story that includes a hurricane, a signalling device, hungry leeches, cold cucumber soup, a horrible villain, and a doll named Pretty Penny, then this book will probably fill you with despair.I will continue to record these tragic tales, for that is what I do. You, however, should decide for yourself whether you can possibly endure this miserable story.
With all due respect,
My 2 Cents
If you hadn’t read the last 2 book before this book, please do, or you be so lost that you have no idea what’s going on. As I have expected, I am completely hooked on this series. I’ve been reading this back to back and I have never been so proud with the Baudelaire orphans. They are strong and leaves quite an example to the readers. No matter how bad the situation was, they managed to strive through it.
This is however another awesome read from this series. The plot didn’t slow down at all, I ended up sitting down and forget everything, and just sit down to read this in one go. I feel like I should not leave these kids to the crabby hands of Count Olaf!
Overall, yup! Another awesome book!
