I want to start off by saying that I am a little bias with my opinion because these books are the books that got me into reading. That being said I loved this series!
A Series of Unfortunate Events is technically a middle- grade series, which just means its aimed for younger individuals but of course anyone can read them. Personally this is the second time I’ve read books one to six but its my first time reading books seven to thirteen. Why I never finished reading all of them in the first place I have no idea. But I wanted to read this series again (kind of) since its now a Netflix show.
Anyways, A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket is about the three Baudelaires, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny, and the tragic events of their lives. All the awful things that befall the children all start when Mr. Poe, a banker, delivers the news of the death of their parents (not a spoiler since it happens in the first chapter). After this moment the Baudelaires end up on a crazy and heart-wrenching journey from place to place. I’m sorry to say that I don’t want to go into more detail because I feel like it would give away what happens.
These books were an emotional rollercoaster for me, like one page I would be mad and the next happy and then frustrated. However, there are moments when you are so happy and other moments when looking back you wonder why you are sad. Now the other part of the series that is kind of different is that lots of the stuff that happens at the start of the series and things that happened before The Bad Beginning starts all comes full circle. While I was reading the last few books, especially the last book, there where times where I would be thing ‘Oh! That’s why this and that happens!’. Sadly not all questions are answered but the way the series ends is just such a good ending (considering that not all questions are answered) that made you feel ok with all the questions you are left with.
Well that’s all for new. Sorry if you were expecting more but I think its best to go into these books without knowing too much.
