The Reptile Room

(Originally published by Nattie on November 9, 2003)
I wasn’t impressed with The Reptile Room by Lemony Snicket–Book Two in “A Series of Unfortunate Events.” In fact I found it kind of depressing. One book about all the bad things that happen to the Baudelaire children seems to be enough.
This book begins with Violet, Klaus and Sunny being taken to their newest guardian Uncle Monty–their late father’s cousin’s wife’s brother. Uncle Monty is a herpetologist and turns out to be much nicer than Cousin Olaf. The kids enjoy their stay with Uncle Monty. Then Count Olaf returns to steal their inheritance.

Maybe it was my mood, but I didn’t find this story as well written asThe Bad Beginning. I don’t believe books have to be all sunshine and rainbows, but this book just didn’t grab me. I already have the third book The Wide Window checked out from the library so I’ll give the series one more chance.
