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."

    Its a magnificent book that has many melancholy chapters that describe how the Baudelaire children felt during their bad journey and from running away a notorious man named Count Olaf and several of Count Olaf's comrades. If you are interested in books about sad and melancholy and about orphans running away from people who are very cruel and merciless.

            This series was great. Even though the plot may seem repetitive, Snicket added an extra dose of mystery, that unravelled with each book. A great read.
