Actually this was my fav books in fifth and sixth grade but seriously now it's just really bad. Anywho the gang hasn't been though all the VFD business yet which is the big part of the series didn't like books 1-4 coz it feels like the kids r just running away from Olaf for 4 continuous books very boring. Books 5 and 6 r ok but still not that good book 8 is where it gets interesting I recommend read book 1 and then skip to book 5 and then read book 8 and then don't skip anymore coz ull get bored ...more

cannot imagine the series withOUT tim curry's voice! he was perfect. i always prefer the books to the movies, but sometimes a just-right reader can add an even better dimension to an already great story.

Giselle read most of these to me, but I don't think we ever finished the last ones. I would give this 2 1/2 stars. Parts of the books are fun, and it was good to have Giselle share them with me.

A Series of Unfortunate Events is a witty, clever collection that I plan to read to my boys in a few years. Entertaining, unexpected, original, with great vocabulary!

Didn't like book one and five as much as the others. I love Snicket's wit. He's very creative and keeps you guessing. Book six is my favorite in the series.

Some of these books, such as the Bad Beginnning and the Miserable Mill, sucked.
