I'm still digging these books but am beginning to hope Snicket mixes things up a bit between now and book 13. ( )

To recap the entire series thus far: Klaus, Violet, and Sunny Baudelaire are orphans. Their parents dying wish was for the children to be under the guardianship of a relative. Any relative. Throughout the series Mr. Poe, the family banker, has been responsible for placing the children with members of the family, no matter how distant. First came Count Olaf who tried to marry Violet in order to obtain rights to a substantial inheritance (due to the children when they came of age). Then came Uncle Monty who died of a bite from his own snake. Now, in The Wide Window, the children have been placed with Aunt Josephine who is a second cousin's sister-in-law and has a phobia of nearly everything. Aunt Josephine lives in a huge house precariously balanced on a mountain ledge above Lake Lachrymose. Of course there is a wide window overlooking the water. Of course, Count Olaf isn't far behind the children, having escaped every other time in the series. A master of disguises, this time he shows up with a peg leg and a patch over one eye, claiming to be Captain Sham.
As with other Lemony Snicket books, there is a formula to The Wide Window: the adults are oblivious to what is directly in front of them, readers will hear the phrase, "a word which means" a lot, and Snicket will urge his audience to read another book if they want a happy ending, "If you are interested in reading a story filled with thrilling good times, I am sorry to inform you that you are most certainly reading the wrong book...this is your last chance" (p 5). This is really quite clever because nine times out of ten one will keep reading just to witness the next tragedy. ( )

I've been reading this series as bedtime stories with Milly, although I did have to go back and read a few myself that she had raced through, unable to wait for me to read them to her at the pace of one chapter a night. They are genuinely brilliant books, funny and dark, mysterious and absurd.

This third one sees the orphans placed with their ridiculously risk averse Aunt Josephine. Once again their lives are ruined by both villains and well-meaning but idiotic adults. It's lucky the Baudelaires are quite ingenious themselves. A note here to also say that I love the descriptions of Count Olafs troupe of associates - none have a name, they are just the hook-handed man, the powder faced ladies, the one that could be a man or a woman etc. ( )

I picked "The Wide Window" for my summer TBR, and I decide it is time to finish with this TBR. I checked my Library through my Libby app if the audiobook is available, and I am lucky because it was.
The truth I was looking a book for and audiobook and I read/listened in one sitting.
With this series I think I will continue reading, and listening to them. I like that Lemony Snicket is narrating the Baudelaire orphans stories.
I started the series because I wanted to watch the Netflix series, but I also, want to finish the books first and then watch the series.
The character of Aunt Josephine was just too funny. I love how in this book, we get to see the Baudelaires growing into more intelligent and self-reliant people. Obviously they are still very naive in a lot of ways, being so young, but I love the way their relationship with each other develops over time so much within the series as a whole and it is fun to see that from closer to the beginning of the books.

If you didn't know much about the Baudelaire orphans, and you saw them sitting on their suitcases at Damocles Dock, you might think that they were bound for an exciting adventure.

Just because something is typed—whether it is typed on a business card or typed in a newspaper—this does not mean that it is true.
But even if they could go home it would be difficult for me to tell you what the moral of the story is. In some stories, it's easy. The moral of "The Three Bears," for instance, is "Never break into someone else's house." The moral of "Snow White" is "Never eat apples." The moral of World War One is "Never assassinate Archduke Ferdinand." But Violet, Klaus, and Sunny sat on the dock and watched the sun come up over Lake Lachrymose and wondered exactly what the moral was of their time with Aunt Josephine.
