The Great Destroyer

Destroying books since 1999.

The Bad Beginning - Lemony Snicket To Beatrice-- darling, dearest, dead.Wait. What??Ever since I watched the Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, I've been dying to read the book. Yes, I know I probably loved the movie so much because of Jim Carrey (huge fan). I mean look at him! How can you NOT love it?? I wish the Count Olaf in the book was as funny as Carrey’s version in the movie.Anyhow, I was sure the original story should be good, and I’m glad I was not proven wrong. I loved everything about the book minus the little moments where the violence was a bit too much. I don’t totally approve of it, especially since this book’s target audience is children. But since I’m a badass grownup I don’t care. Not my problem.I liked the baby as well. Me! Liked a baby! Gah!!! What's happening to me??
