The Wide Window (A Series of Unfortunate Events #3) by Lemony Snicket, Brett Helquist (Illustrations)

Review: I was not a huge fan of this installment of the series, but it was still nice to have more details. I have watched the movie and the new show before reading these, so I’m a little board with the books that have been covered in the show already. Sorry! I know this is terrible of me. But I could not help it, the show just calls to me cause its so good.

Anyway, I am so ready to just read more of this series. But I do have to say this book was really dark, and there seems to be more killing going on… So yeah.

Favorite quote: N/A

Would I? Do a reread? I don’t think so. Tell others to read it? Yes, because everyone should read the series.

Rating: 2 out of 5 stars.

Edition: Hardcover, 214 pages.

Dear Reader,

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,

Lemony Snicket
