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."

        Dear Reader, Although the lives of the Baudelaire orphans may be very unfortunate you reader are the exact opposite. If you hold this book in your hand let me tell you that you are very fortunate to have the ability to read this mysterious and jaw dropping tale. There are so many clues and hidden puzzles to decipher reader. That you may find questions unanswered pulling you towards the next book, and the next, and the next untill you find yourself at The End. But be warned this tale is one of misery and woe. So how could it be a good one? Well you should began your journey in the depths of this book to find out so. With all due respect, Art3mis Snicket

          It's very unique, and it's an amazing story. The only thing is, it's unfortunate

            I love this book so much. It's sad, but it's a wonderful story. Count Olaf's schemes to get the fortune of the Bauldalaires. Count Olaf is funny as well as sneaky. Netflix made a series of it, and it's really good as well! Everyone, read this book! Lemony Snicket is a great writer (Or narrator if you're watching the series) and I really enjoyed his book. I recommend this book to everyone!

                    This first book is a great way to start the series. I definitely recommend it.
