The author of the Bad Beginning is Lemony Snicket he is a quirky kind of author and he throws in lots of unusual words.
The Bad Beginning is a an awkward kind of book because its got heaps of small unusual twists just chucked in everywhere that you don't expect. There are three main characters Violet, Klaus and Sunny . The story is about going to a foster home after their parents die in a fire. It should just be going to a foster home but there is more to it.. not sleeping in a bed, having a massive list of chores and almost dieing of starvation .
I enjoyed this book because it was a bit different to what other books are like but I won't give any spoilers you can read it yourself.
I give this book a four out of five because it could have been a bit better.
Thanks for reading.
