The ninth in the Series of Unfortunate Events continuing the story of the Baudelaire orphans. Read by Tim Curry. This carnivorous work contains such a distressing story that consuming any of its contents would be far more stomach-turning than even the most imbalanced meal. Read if you dare!!!

The Reptile Room is the second book in the series and is much better than the Netflix series.
The book opens with Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire on their way to live with their uncle, Dr Montgomery Montgomery, a semi-successful herpetologist with a large collection of reptiles.
Dr Montgomery's assistant, Gustav, left him without any notice just before the Baudelaire orphans arrive, and his replacement, Stephano is strangely like Count Olaf.
The thing I love about The Reptile Room is the dark humour running throughout it. There are constant jokes that are definitely not aimed towards children which make it such a fun book to read.
It's funny, sad and entertaining all at the same time and I really do wish I'd have read it when I was younger because it's just the ideal book for me.
It tells the story of the Baudelaire orphans in a carnival where they have to disguise themselves as 'freaks' in order to prevent their identities from being discovered.
The book contains the usual amount of woes that the children have to go through and it is gripping with a cliffhanger ending that means you are sure to want to read the next book.
I highly recommend this series to anyone aged about 8 years old. Keep in mind that it is advisable to read them in chronological order (the first book is called the Bad Beginning).
This book like the rest in the series never fails to deliver the right amount of thrills and imaginative scenarios to make a gripping book!
The pages are small with easy to read writing and short chapters making it suitable for children.
Beautifully written with fantastic imagery Mr Snicket is a master of painting a scene with his words. If your looking for something that's not your run of the mill book look no further I truly believe this series can entertain both adult and teen readers alike.
Strong female leads, siblings working together, encouragement to use their talents and sneaky way to learn more words and how to use them. Which as an adult might seem silly but once you stop writing all those waffley essays you'd be amazed at what you forget!
