Archive for the ‘6 out of 10’ Category

Today I am reviewing The Bad Beginning, written by Lemony Snicket. I used to love this book when I was in elementary school, however right now, in middle school, I am not a huge fan of it anymore. Still, is a great book for 4th and 3rd graders.

The Bad Beginning is the first book of the Series of Unfortunate Events. This book is about three children who had a perfectly wonderful life, until their rich parents were killed in a huge fire. They are now heirs to a magnificent fortune. However, they can not get it until they turn eighteen. In the meantime, they are adopted to a relative called Count Olaf. Their life quickly horrible and they soon discover that Count Olaf has a sinister plan to get their fortune.

 

This is an okay book. It does not have much setting, and the plot is slow. However, it has good characters and great descriptions. This book would be good for 3rd, 4th, and some 5th graders. But there are much better books out there.

 

I rate this book a 6 out of 10.
