A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket

A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket

All thirteen of Lemony Snicket’s books in the Series of Unfortunate Events come with strong recommendations that the reader should look elsewhere for a good book. This advice comes from the author! and is characteristic of the tone of all of the titles in the series.

Violet, Sunny and Klaus Baudelaire are orphaned when their parents perish in a fire and are left to the mercy of the villainous Count Olaf who is nothing but a crook. He will stop at nothing to get his hands on the children’s fortune.

Snicket’s mission is to tell the tale of these children so that the general public will know each terrible thing that has happened to them. However he does point out that “if you decide to read something else instead, you will save yourself from a heapful of horror and woe.”
