The humorous and varied adventures of the Baudelaire children, after they are orphaned and must use their intelligence and quirkiness to escape the clutches of the evil Count Olaf. ( )

It couldn't be more perfect. This is the ultimate box of a beautiful series. It contains all 13 books in a box with beautiful drawings from Brett Helquist. It really is a collectable item. ( )

Cute and funny, but the overall story rambled and didn't really tie together in the end. It kind of just stopped. ( )

A Series of unfortunate contains 13 books about the misfortunate lives of the Baudelaire children. I have read the entire series and loved them. They are excellent mystery books for older ELEM students. I believe this series is excellent for those students who can't stick with a book. I used to be one of those students until I found this series.
The story is about the Baudelaire children, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny, lose their parents in a suspicious fire that leads them to living with their even more suspicious long lost uncle, count Olaf. Throughout the series, mysteries and conspiracies begin to unfold right in front of the children's eyes. The children find themselves traveling from relative to relative, none of which they have ever met or heard of, while being followed by their greedy uncle. Some of the relatives seem to experience some unfortunate events that lead to their doom. On the other hand, the three form alliances with some odd characters. The three work together as a team to defeat the villainous count Olaf. Violet is the inventor and the group leader, Klaus is the bookworm, and Sunny is the biter and later on the chef. In an attempt to not spoil the series, this is all the information I will give to you, but you will have to read the series yourself to discover the unfortunate events happened to the Baudelaire children.

When I started reading this series of books, I was listing each one and planning to write a review for each book, I was really just trying to pad my book read numbers. I decided to do just one review, this series is one story, divided into 13 parts. Each book is pretty much the same, the Baudelaire orphans are put into a new home, Count Olaf shows up, in some disguise which fools everyone except the children, and despite the horrible things that happen, they prevail and escape from Count Olaf, only to lose whatever home they have gained and realize once again that the only thing they can rely on is each other since the adults in their life will fail them.

These books have been said to be repetitive, that is one viewpoint, however for me there were differences and along the way it seemed that the books were heading to an end, there was a story line of sorts, slowly revealed over the course of the 13 books.

These are for children, and although horrible things happen, the tone the book sets makes them not scary, in a sense they are kind of ridiculous. I enjoyed reading them. ( )
