The Bad Beginning, is book one of theSeries of Unfortunate Events The Baudelaire children; Violet, Klaus and Sunny are orphaned leading them to a most unfortunate series of events. Everything bad happens, with little relief. I didn't like this book as much as many, but I'm told the subsequent installments are better (there's eight so far). Reed Reads Score: 3.5
