A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Bad Beginning

The Bad Beginning (1999) by Lemony Snicket is the first in a very successful series of books called A Series of Unfortunate Events. It’s a kids book that doesn’t have much for adults in the way that the Harry Potter books do. I read it just to see what all the fuss is about.

The jokes in the books didn’t grab me and the didactic intrusions annoyed me. However, I’m wildly out of the target audience and just thought I’d check it out. This is one for the kids.
