First thoughts

My First Thoughts?

The Baudelaire children are really quite something! Just when I think things can’t get any worse for them, they do.

Well, er – obviously it’s going to …

The Vile Village is such an awesome name for another unfortunate adventure.  When I picked up this book I couldn’t help but be intrigued to why this village could be called vile. What on earth is going to happen to the Baudelaire children in this story?

About the book | Alternative-Read.com

Dear Reader,

You have undoubtedly picked up this book by mistake, so please put it down. Nobody in their right mind would read this particular book about the lives of Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire on purpose, because each dismal moment of their stay in the village of V.F.D. has been faithfully and dreadfully recorded in these pages.

I can think of no single reason why anyone would want to open a book containing such unpleasant matters as migrating crows, an angry mob, a newspaper headline, the arrest of innocent people, the Deluxe Cell, and some very strange hats. It is my solemn and sacred occupation to research each detail of the Baudelaire children’s lives and write them all down, but you may prefer to do some other solemn and sacred thing, such as reading another book instead.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket

Are you unlucky enough to own all 13 adventures? Yep, I am going to bore you share my Lemony Snicket love and devotion — ten more times! You lucky things, you! If you don’t want to read them all by then, well, I give up! lol 

Book 1 – The Bad Beginning (The Friday 56 post).

Book 2 – The Reptile Room (last Friday’s Friday56 Post)

Book 3 – The Wide Window  (last Friday56 post)

Book 4 – The Miserable Mill (last Friday’s Friday56 post)

Book 5 – The Austere Academy (My Friday’s Friday56 post)

Book 6 – The Ersatz Elevator (My Friday56 post)

The Carnivorous Carnival

The Slippery Slope

The Grim Grotto

The Penultimate Peril

The End

And what about All the Wrong Questions? In this four-book series a 13-year-old Lemony chronicles his dangerous and puzzling apprenticeship in a mysterious organisation that nobody knows anything about:

‘Who Could That Be at This Hour?’

‘When Did you Last See Her?’

‘Shouldn’t You Be in School?’

‘Why is This Night Different from All Other Nights?’
