Waiting is one of life's hardships. It is hard enough to wait for chocolate cream pie while burnt roast beef is still on your plate. It is plenty difficult to wait for Halloween when the tedious month of September is still ahead of you. But to wait for one's adopted uncle to come home while a greedy and violent man is upstairs was one of the worst waits the Baudelaires had ever experienced.

#5/50
Rereading these 15 years later so I can finally finish the series. They still hold up, but I‘m also so old that I realize how annoying and unhelpful the adults are in this world. However, the ending did make me sad when they had to say goodbye to the Viper.

I really like the first two books in the series so far, I have listened to them both. Tim Curry narrated this one and he is fantastic, as always. While these are “middle grade” books, Count Olaf is menacing enough to be scary. Threatening to cut off baby toes and all!🙀 Wth? But I love it.

Well, halfway through book two I laid down for a nap, and slept for 11 hours 😂 I‘m not even complaining. That‘s what holidays are for right? And now I can stay up all night, listen to the next few in the series, and get some cleaning, or crafting done! 💖

I really enjoyed this book. Even though it is clear from the very beginning what the outcome of the story will be, I still found I could hope along with the Baudelaire children that this time might be different. Alas, their story is rather tragic and filled with ups and downs. This one will stick with me. I will miss some of the characters, people and animals, that I was introduced to during this story.

I wonder what is going to happen next...

So much fun!
The plot for this story was much better than the first book. I loved the reptiles and snakes, plus I am always happy for a murder mystery.
I do feel like the ending could have been better though.
This was such a delight to read still, that I immediately bought the next book in the series.

PaperbackPirate This one was probably my favorite in the series. I need to finish watching the show now! 3y

Why do I enjoy this series so much!?

The Reptile Room is the perfect sequel to the first book in a Series of Unfortunate Events, which I also loved. Maybe I enjoy the characters, or how short the story is, or the vocabulary! Whatever the reason, I‘m already looking forward to the third book.

In this series, our orphans find themselves staying with Uncle Monty who is a bit eccentric as he owns snakes of all kinds and his very own reptile room.

Ash.on.the.line I‘m reading through this series too! 4y

I thought that this book was bad and only bad. The names for each character are weird and abstract. The storyline is ok but I really didn't like it as a whole.

Modern fantasy and was written in 1999. This book is about three orphan children that are about to be in some trouble. The beginning of the book has the children going to their new guardian, uncle Monty. Stephano, their arc minisious comes to take the children's fortune and in the process kills their uncle. The children set up a trap to catch him but he escapes once again

I've read the first four books in the series in both print and audio (narrated by Tim Curry) multiple times since 2013 but for some reason, never get much farther than that. I'm determined that *this* year, I'm going to make it through the whole series *and* watch the NetFlix offering!

Currently reading the second book (print this time for the illustrations by Brett Helquist): The Baudelaire orphans are off to live with their Uncle Monty

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I love these and the twisted fun writing he uses. But yes, I also read the first few, then stopped feeling like it wasn‘t going anywhere... a bit repetitive....it wasn‘t until my nephew got to that age and read them all, that I read them all with him. 😉 4y
TK-421 I think around book 5 or maybe 6 or 7 things get shaken up a bit so it's not so repetitive, and things really get good - or, since this is the Baudelaire orphans we're talking about, things get really bad! 4y
Peddler410 The Netflix series is fun! I never read past book one when they were first published. I‘m doing them now as read- alouds with my daughter. We recently finished book six. 4y

I enjoyed this second book in the series even more than the first. It's more fun, and there's more feeling, maybe because that author has already established situation, characters and tone in the first book.
The story is simple but clever and very enjoyable.

I've listened to the audiobook read by Jim Carrey and it was fantastic. Carrey is also increasingly owning the story and it was such pleasure and fun to listen to him.

Congratulations @vivastory!
I'm paying tribute to the Reading Reptile! (RIP 😢).
For 10 years, I lived within walking distance to this amazing Kansas City children's bookstore. It was filled with books, paper machier sculptures, weird displays, games, and a cat. It was a big part of kids' childhoods. And through this place I saw Lemony Snicket, Jon Klassen, Jacqueline Woodsen, John Green, Rainbow Rowell, and more. ❤️💚💙💛💜🧡
#vivabookstore

merelybookish The owners are now working to create a children's book museum called The Rabbit Hole. Have you been to any of their events @vivastory? I went to a few before we moved. They were pretty cool! 5y
vivastory I will have to look into that. This slipped past me. I wasn't aware of the store when it was open either. 5y
TommieMarie74 I live in Lawrence KS and had no idea this bookstore existed. I know where my next book haul will come from!! ❤️ 5y

If you know somebody very well, like your grandmother or your baby sitter, you will know when they are real and when they are fake. This is why, as Sunny began to scream, Violet and Klaus could tell immediately that her scream was absolutely fake.
"That scream is absolutely fake," Klaus said to himself, from the other end of the Reptile Room.
"That scream is absolutely fake," Violet said to herself, from the stairs as she went up to her room.

#2 in the series and I'm losing interest. 😕

[DELETED] 3803335244 My kids & I read until book 5 then we started to lose interest. Things were happening the same way in book after book. The situations were different but the outcome the same. So I hear you on losing interest. I read the last book by myself though just to see what happens. 5y
Dolly @ForeverNerdy thanks for the comment and good info. Life is too short. I may read more from time to time. The advantage being, unlike a box of chocolates, you know what you're going to get. 😉 (edited) 5y
