Download Epub Format ✓ The Bad Beginning PDF by á Lemony Snicket Dear Reader,I M Sorry To Say That The Book You Are Holding In Your Hands Is Extremely Unpleasant It Tells An Unhappy Tale About Three Very Unlucky Children Even Though They Are Charming And Clever, The Baudelaire Siblings Lead Lives Filled With Misery And Woe From The Very First Page Of This Book When The Children Are At The Beach And Receive Terrible News, Continuing On Through The Entire Story, Disaster Lurks At Their Heels One Might Say They Are Magnets For MisfortuneIn This Short Book Alone, The Three Youngsters Encounter A Greedy And Repulsive Villain, Itchy Clothing, A Disastrous Fire, A Plot To Steal Their Fortune, And Cold Porridge For BreakfastIt Is My Sad Duty To Write Down These Unpleasant Tales, But There Is Nothing Stopping You From Putting This Book Down At Once And Reading Something Happy, If You Prefer That Sort Of ThingWith All Due Respect, Lemony Snicket So the premise of this book as the narrator keeps helpfully reminding us is that this group of three children will continue to have difficult problems to overcome, and every time they succeed in dealing with one problem, another will crop up In the writing business, this is what s known as a plot.
But then he takes it one step further in addition to all the difficulties along the way, he assures us that the characters will never break this pattern, and there will be no happy ending I think this is a good idea, especially in a children s book, because we, as a culture, don t have enough role models for failure.
We have lots of role models for how to behave when we win, but this isn t really very useful it s not when we win that we most need guidance and aid We need examples of how to maintain, how to persevere, in the face of failure.
At I m not going to rate this, because I ve already read this book stand by my first rating of it I adore this story so much I m so happy that I took the time to re read it It made me feel SO nostalgic reading it I can t wait for the netflix series

I m reading through this series with my daughter Celyn 10 years old, very disabled, hence Dad does the reading.
Edit Finished reviewed all 13 So, this is a clever, entertaining book set in a world like ours but populated with bizarre characters and with distinctly dark undercurrents.
Recurring themes throughout the series are i Adults are mindbogglingly stupid.
ii The narrator, Lemony Snicket, is a character we glimpse in tantalising snatches.
iii Words that stretch a child s vocabulary are used regularly but defined in context by the narrator in an amusing way.
iv The three siblings, Violet 14 , Klaus 12 , and Sunny 1 will use their singular talents respectively inventor bookworm biter to solve the problem.
v That problem will be Count OlaafThe book like Roald Dahl s work succeeds with a combination of wit, slapstick, and malice.
Short, very readable, will leav For some reason I had the sudden urge to re read these books so I decided to start listening to them on audiobook I have the 11th book in a physical copy, but I will eventually be picking the rest of them up as well.
