My literature circle role for chapter 3 was illustrator, so I took the role of passage master. The first passage I found interesting was: “If they were here,” Klaus said, his voice rising as he got more and more upset, “we would not be with Count Olaf in the first place. I hate it here, Violet! I hate this house! I hate our room! I hate having to do all these chores, and I hate Count Olaf!” pg 32 I chose this passage because it really illuminates all of the emotions the Baudelaire children were feeling. It makes their sitaution much more meaningful; the way Klaus emphasizes the word "hate" over and over again in each sentence really lets you imagine what these children were going through. The next passage I chose was: Perhaps, with the kind Justice Strauss and her library right next door, the children could prepare pleasant lives for themselves as easily as making puttanesca sauce for Count Olaf. pg 40 I chose this passage because of the beautiful language used. Lemony Snicket uses a simile here: "preparing" lives for themselves as one "prepares" pasta sauce. In response to: Please describe your thoughts on this chapter from your literature circle role perspective.
