Dear Reader,

If you have not read anything about the Baudelaire orphans, then before you read even one more sentence, you should know this: Violet, Klaus, and Sunny are kindhearted and quick-witted, but their lives, I am sorry to say, are filled with bad luck and misery. All of the stories about these three children are unhappy and wretched, and this one may be the worst of them all. If you haven't got the stomach for a story that includes a hurricane, a signalling device, hungry leeches, cold cucumber soup, a horrible villain, and a doll named Pretty Penny, then this book will probably fill you with despair. I will continue to record these tragic tales, for that is what I do. You, however, should decide for yourself whether you can possibly endure this miserable story.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket

Aunt Josephine is one of my favourite charactors in this series.
She is so funny and Meryl Streep did such an amzing job of acting as her in the movie. This series is just so imaginative you can understand why it's such a worldwide sucess.
I love this book!
Tia on
this book is so unbeleievably good! i read it from stat to finish in a really short space of time because it just drew my attention from the get go! lemony snickets books are phenomenal! and the movie is pretty good to! but not as good as the books as they cram alot until 3 hours--thats why you should read this book! the 3rd book rox!

When the children go to live with their Aunt Josephine, who is afraid of almost everything and her favourite thing in life is grammar, the children find out that Count Olaf has followed them again, but disguised as a sailor who goes by the name of Captain Sham. Again Count Olaf tries to steal the childrens' fortune left to them when both their parents died in a terrible fire.

This is the third book in A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket.

This is also one of my favourite books in the series. Here the children are sent to stay with Aunt Josephine a terrible hypochondriac who loves punctuation. The children use all there skills to avoid the clutches of the evil Count Olaf including deciphering a code, rigging up a signal surviving a hurricane and sailing a raft.
Trinette on
The first book was ok, the second good but this one was great! The hidden meanings of things were only found the second time I read it. The way Lemony Snicket writes his books are in a twisted, cruel completely untrue way but when you get into it you see love and you almost feel like its completely true.
Jennifer on
after reading this book i must admit i went through a rough couple of days where i, like the aunt the three baudelaire orphan siblings get sent to live with, had a fear of almost every thing! what if the door knob shatters when i touch it? what if the soup i eat is too hot and i get burned to death? great stuff
Jennifer on
i had very high expectations of this third book in the Series of Unfortunate Events series after enjoying the first two so much, and lemony snicket managed not to disappoint me. this third helping of the miserable lives and luck of the baudelaire orphans is delicously unfortunate, and so worth reading!
Varisa on
"The Wide Window" by Lemony Snicket was a very interesting book. When I first picked up the book I didn't think it was going to be that good, but then I started to read, it surprised me how attached to it I was. It all starts out with the Baudelaire children waiting once again for their new guardian come to pick them up. After their parents death from a terrible fire they go from house to house, while having Count Olaf chasing after their fortune. Count Olaf makes the lives of the Bauldelaire children very difficult to live. They currently live with their Aunt Josephine who is terrified of everything. What challenges will the children face this time? You will have to read it to find out
Amelia on
Living with a paranoid aunt is the least of the Baudelaire's troubles in this installment of A Series of Unfortunate Events. The Wide Window is an excellent addition to the series with the same characteristic dark humour as employed by Snicket in its predecessors. A must have for anyone who enjoyed the first two books and a recommended read for anyone who enjoys the Harry Potter series.
Courtney on
After the unfortunate death of their poor uncle monty, the three Baudalire children are sent to live with their hysterical aunt josphphine. they now live hanging off the edge of a cliff over Lacromose lake.
when Count olaf shows up in one of his funny but yet pathetic desguises, the baudalires realise that they have to save their aunt form his clutches.
