A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Reptile Room

There’s more misery ahead for the Baudelaire orphans in this second book of doom-filled adventures. Things briefly seem to be looking up for the trio when they escape Count Olaf’s clutches and go to live with jolly Uncle Monty. Monty has promised to take them to Peru as soon as his new assistant, Stephano, arrives. Meanwhile, the children are mesmerised by the exotic snakes that Uncle Monty keeps in his Reptile Room. But – oh so unfortunately – when Stephano finally arrives, he turns out to be Count Olaf in disguise. Murder, deception and another cunning attempt to steal the Baudelaire fortune are on the cards…

    It’s a little strange how even though these books each have their unfortunate event they are really enjoyable, each page spent in anticipation of Violets inventions, Klaus’ knowledge and sunny’s Bites. this is the second in the series and I find one especially heartbreaking as they could’ve been really happy with quirky old uncle monty.
