I finally got hold of the third part in Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events after all the copies had been borrowed in all libraries here in Vienna! Read this little gem in one sitting 😀
The Beaudelair children head for their new home. Maybe thinks are looking up with their new guardian Josephine. You may have guessed it, Violet, Klaus and Sunny are still out of luck. Josephine is afraid of everything (and I mean everything) and soon before long Count Olaf is back in the picture. And what has the Lachrymose Lake with its evil leeches to do with all of this?
I can’t even tell you how excited I was to finally read The Wide Window. As usually, every little detail is superb with the Lemony Snicket books. The illustrations are just too cute and this one also has the raw edges that give the book rather secretive look.
Apart from that we get another heart-breaking story. With each page you wish you could reach out and help the Beaudelaire children but unfortunately all we can to is read on. The Wide Window surprises with a few unpredictable plot twist. Even those parts you do see coming are told in such a charming way that you can’t help but adore this little gem of a book.
After reading another wonderful book by Lemony Snicket I can’t wait to get started with the next installment, The Miserable Mill!
