Would You?

Dear Reader,

I'm sorry to say that the book you are holding in your hands is extremely unpleasant. It tells an unhappy tale about three very unlucky children. Even though they are charming and clever, the Baudelaire siblings lead lives filled with misery and woe. From the very first page of this book when the children are at the beach and receive terrible news, continuing on through the entire story, disaster lurks at their heels. One might say that they are magnets for misfortune.

In this short book alone, the three youngsters encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune, and cold porridge for breakfast.

It is my sad duty to write down these unpleasant tales, but there is nothing stopping you from putting this book down at once and reading something happy, if you prefer that sort of thing.

With all due respect,
Lemony Snicket (sgd)

Would you read such kind of book with a warning written at the back of the book? I did, while having foot spa at Holiday, and i did finish it (it was short)...Now where did Trisha put book 2?

I have yet to read 3 more:
1. The Bad Beginning (done)
2. The Reptile Room
3. The Wide Window
4. The Miserable Mill

I wonder when can we get the rest of the Lemony Snicket Collection???
