When the three Baudelaire siblings learn that their parents have been killed in a fire, it's only the start of a seemingly neverending chain of unfortunate events...

If you are in the age of 10-14 years old, you might love these books. If you're not I suggest you give it a try, too, because - like me - you might love them anyway. These melodramatic books are full of sardonic, witty humor, satirical references, obscure words, ludicrous lessons and unusual plot twists. If you like reading books that include noteworthy things such as greedy villains, devastating fires, heart-shaped balloons, large knives, bad casseroles, itchy clothing and a man with a cloud of smoke where his head should be, then you'll definately enjoy this series!

Quotes Jitske Liked

Lemony Snicket
“A man of my acquaintance once wrote a poem called "The Road Less Traveled", describing a journey he took through the woods along a path most travelers never used. The poet found that the road less traveled was peaceful but quite lonely, and he was probably a bit nervous as he went along, because if anything happened on the road less traveled, the other travelers would be on the road more frequently traveled and so couldn't hear him as he cried for help. Sure enough, that poet is dead.”
