Are you made fainthearted by death? Does fire unnerve you? Is a villain something that might crop up in future nightmares of yours? Are you thrilled by nefarious plots? Is cold porridge upsetting to you? Vicious threats? Hooks? Uncomfortable clothing?

It is likely that your answers will reveal A Series of Unfortunate Events to be ill-suited for your personal use. A librarian, bookseller, or acquaintance should be able to suggest books more appropriate for your fragile temperament. But to the rarest of readers we say, "Proceed, but cautiously."

      It is ok. I have only gotten to the Carnivorous Carnival. What happens in The End? My favorite one is the Hostage Hospital. It is so cool!

            Who is else LOVES Lemony Snicket? He has such a character! Hes absolutely amazing. And who knew you could learn so much and enjoy a book a the same time? Its crazy! I love the ending of the last book. I also love the "To Beatrice" dedications at the front and the "About the Author" in the back. It changes for each book, and its really fun.

                Violet, Klaus, and sunny are unfortunate Baudelaire children but they are all very smart with things. Violet is a inventor and it helps her if she is trapped, or if she is in danger, or if she needs help getting up something or all kinds of things. Klaus is a smart, intelligent boy, he reads a lot of books and it helps him if he has a mystery to solve. Sunny has four sharp teeth and it helps her if she is fighting someone, or if Klaus or Violet is in trouble, and if she needs to get up things. You should read this book because if you are into mysteries you will like this book and it has a lot of action. I recommend for you to read this book.
