This series has dark humor, interesting characters, and a compelling storyline -- both a completed one within each book and then an overarching throughline within the whole series. I read them all in quick fashion several years ago, so this review lacks any more specifics than that. ( )

These books just get more and more interesting! The first few books followed the same sort of formula and it became a little repetitive.
But in the "Ersatz Elevator" and onward, you started to learn more about the children's backstory, and the conspiracy behind the fire that burned down their house.
I cannot wait to read the next one and learn more.
Loved it :D ( )

Book description
As I read more of this series, I became more and more sorry for the Baudelaire Triplets. Everywhere they go, they would have to get haunted down by Count Olaf, and his stupid assistants! Well, at least they had some success in this book, they had burned down the hopital, but they still didn't capture that nasty old Count Olaf! I think that Count Olaf has been becoming more and more cruel as the book gets further and further. So far, this was the best successfully ending they ever had, well at least in my opinion. But I hope the author could make them have a happily ever ending, beause they had already suffered through a lot of events. Can't wait to read the next book!
