A Series Of Unfortunate Events


BOOKS: Too many to name.

AUTHOR: Lemony Snicket

GENRE/TYPE: Mystery/Adventure




The Series Of Unfortunate Events tells the tale of the three Baudelaire siblings whose parents die in a mysterious fire. Their guardian a banker called Mr Poe has to find them various foster parents that mysterious die or disappear. The reason for this is a mysterious guardian who wants the fortune the Baudelaire siblings got from their dead parents.


This story had a really good plot. It had many plot twists that were really suspenseful. The writing was very descriptive and you got to know the character really well by the end of the series.


I thought that this series went on for a bit too long. (13 books was too much even for me).

Bookaholic – Still reading 🙂

    Yes I agree; I liked the stories but they did feel quite drawn out and repetitive towards the end. However, the mystery element only really ramped up by about book number 4/5 and even by book 13, which I think is one of the best, didn’t tie up any of the ends and that disappointed me. Do you know Netflix are releasing a TV adaptation of the books? 🙂
