Book review by Ben Salisbury, Clacton County High School
This is a book of fiction, which is part of a series that revolves around three children who are orphaned by a terrible fire. These children are chased by a distant relative who wants to steal their fortune.
In The Bad Beginning, the Baudelaire’s parents perish in a fire so the orphans are sent to live with a distant relative whose name is Count Olaf.
I would recommend this book because it is very interesting and you want to know what happens next. It is part of a series too so if you want more there are another 12 books to read.
My favourite part is towards the end when you find out about their next guardian...
I would recommend this book for age 11+. It would especially appeal to readers who are interested in gothic/dark stories.
I would rate this book 5 stars!
