This story reminds me of my family's house that is on a mountain. The house is so high that when you are looking over the side, you can see the town below. I felt sad because the evil Count Olaf tries to steal the orphans' fortune, left to them by their parents. Count Olaf always hurts one of the characters. It was interesting to read about the different plans that Olaf uses to steal their fortune. The character of Aunt Josephine reminds me of my Aunt Linda. Both of them are very nice and caring.
I recommend this book for ages 7 and older because some parts of the story are sad. When Aunt Josephine gets pushed out of the window by the evil Count Olaf I was mad and sad because the orphans will have to live with Olaf again and that is not good. It is also interesting because the orphans find clever ways to outsmart Count Olaf's plans to steal their fortune.
