This series is amazing. Even though it can be predictable at times, the protagonists are awesome and the book is super interesting! Also I think Uncle Monty was a great uncle for the children.

And the Baudelaires’ misery continues in this sequel to ‘The Bad Beginning.’ This is a good sequel—good meaning “well-written with an interesting plot” not “happy,” as nothing that happens to the Baudelaire orphans, aside from the brief respite with Uncle Monty, could be called happy.

The story is grim, fascinating, and ends with intrigue. The characters are just as wonderful to be with, besides Olaf of course. The unique voice with which Lemony Snicket has written this series is just as consistent, and I highly enjoy it.

If you enjoy grim tales of miserable orphans, this is a grand continuation of the sad tales. I don’t know why you would want to relive the lives of these poor children, but that is that.

I love this series. This book was one of the best because they actually got a good guardian who cared about them. It was really sad later on in the book (be prepared!) but I fell in love with the characters. Sometimes these books can be confusing, but the storyline comes together. Lemony really makes you think about what you would do in those situations and he really makes you feel like you are actually there! <3 Love this book!

Another good, but sadly unfortunate addition to the series. It's so weird to read this book and see all the scenes from the film adaptations running through my head, but I love it. I'm truly excited to read the next book, even if I know how it ends.

I enjoyed this book because it made me want to keep reading. My favourite part if this book was when violet realized how count Olaf had killed Monty and shared it with mr. Poe and the others. I enjoyed this part because it had lots of detail and was easy to understand. Overall, I have no negitave feedback about this book.

My mom and I read this book together. We like that some of the characters, like Count Olaf, show up again and again. This book was exciting and kept us reading to find out what would happen next. This series is different than others because sometimes the good guys don't win. We like how each orphan has a different hobby and we also like how hard they try to solve the problems they encounter.

Lots of action in the second one! This one is very sad at the end thought but still good! I loved all the mysteries of the book! This time the orphans went to a nicer guardian and were having a great time......until count Olaf shows up again!

I love how there's always a cliff hanger at the end of each book!

I still seem to enjoy these stories even if they are 'unfortunate'.
I like the mystery!

Continued from the first book, The Bad Begining, our characters out come is looking much brighter! But evil strikes again, bringing upon more unfortunate events! Will our characters be able to make it out alive?

I have to say I love this series! While yes, we do know our characters will always run into trouble went the outlook seems better, there are still many twists and turn that makes this series wonderful! While they do suffer a great deal, these children do have fun times as well! I truly recomend this series for anyone who wants to have a book-clutching edge-of-their-seat kind of reading adventure!

paraphrasing: some terrible things are going to happen to the kids ... you really should not continue to read this ... but how can you stop?
Can't wait for the next story!

I absolutely loved this book! The first book in the series was great, but this book surpasses it; it was absolutely incredible! The author is phenomenal, and the narrator is fantastic! The humor appeals to audiences both young and old and story is great through and through!

I really tried to like this series, but I just couldn't. The story was pretty much repeating it's self with more of the same situations that just frustrated you as a reader, since you see the obvious way out of most of the problems presented. No this doesn't take the spot of worst book I've read, I doubt anything can top The Giver, but I was not liking this book and I had to send it back. One thing that I noticed that seemed out of place was the fact that in this book and the previous there were certain themes that seemed a but mature for younger readers; I mean I won't spoil it, but I felt that it was a strange seeing a few things in here that I wasn't really expecting. Anyways with that out out the way I guess I'll have to rate this, so I'm giving The Reptile Room, a 4/10, sorry Lemony, but from what I've read and heard, it's too much of the same. On to something else now.

This book takes a very light perspective on death, since it is often paired with ironic humour. Clearly written for the young teen age group. It is an interesting read and like all the other books in the series it is a page-turner.
