I thought this book was a page-turner, unfortunate, and sad. I thought this book was great but it wasn't my all time favorite. This book was about these three kids Violet Sunny and Klaus that have horrible things that happen to them. So they end up going to their relative Count Olaf and he treats them horrible. They want to leave so bad but they have no where else to live. But Count Olaf's neighbor Justice Strauss which they want to live with but they can't live with her cause their parents will said that they have to live with a relative. Now i'm going to stop here and there was more but this is petty much so ya it doesn't have a happy ending but if you were interested you should go read this right now and read the 2nd book. I do recommend this book and I would recommend watching the movie after you read the book then you can compare and contrast them if you want.
