Which A Series of Unfortunate Events Book Is the Most...Unfortunate?Posted by Hayley Igarashi on January 12, 2017
Since its publication in 1999, Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events has greeted new readers with all the cheer of Dante's Gates of Hell.
In fact, this is the opening line of The Bad Beginning, book one of the series: "If you are interested in stories with happy endings, you would be better off reading some other book. In this book, not only is there no happy ending, there is no happy beginning and very few happy things in the middle."
Yet despite the cheeky gloom and doom—or, more likely, because of it—Snicket's 13-book series is beloved around the world. And on Friday, a new take on the series arrives on Netflix: eight episodes all released at once for your binging pleasure.
Will the Netflix adaptation be better than that 2004 movie? Will our favorite Count Olaf disguises be included? These are questions we can't answer yet. But we're readers! We always have opinions on books. So let's decide which one of the "Unfortunate Events" is the best at being the worst.
The Bad Beginning The Reptile Room The Wide Window The Miesrable Mill The Austere Academy The Ersatz Elevator The Vile Village The Hostile Hospital The Carnivorous Carnival The Slipperly Slope The Grim Grotto The Penultimate Peril The End
Prepare yourself for a night of binging glory (or days of leisurely viewing if you insist on being such an adult about it) with the trailer for Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events, starring Neil Patrick Harris, Alfre Woodard, Patrick Warburton, Aasif Mandvi, and Catherine O'Hara.
And for a limited time, grab this wickedly good deal on The Bad Beginning, the first book in A Series of Unfortunate Events!
