A Warning from the Publisher:

Many readers have questions about Lemony Snicket, author of the distressing serial concerning the trials of the charming but unlucky Baudelaire orphans, published under the collective title A Series of Unfortunate Events. Before purchasing, borrowing, or stealing this book, you should be aware that it contains the answers to some of those questions, such as the following:

1. Who is Lemony?

2. Is there a secret organization I should know about?

3. Why does Lemony Snicket spend his time researching and writing distressing books concerning the Baudelaire orphans?

4. Why do all of Lemony Snicket's books contain a sad dedication to a woman named Beatrice?

5. If there's nothing out there, what was that noise?

Our advice to you is that you find a book that answers less upsetting questions than this one. Perhaps your librarian, bookseller, or parole officer can recommend a book that answers the question, "Aren't ponies adorable?"

Lemony Snicket is often despondent, mostly about his published research, which includes A Series of Unfortunate Events and The Composer Is Dead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome! I love the add-ons to this series. Snicket really understands what 9-12 kids want (and also adults in their 30s that are young at heart!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good companion book to the series. Adds illumination to the series, and helps clear up some of the mystery... but then it adds a question or 2 to make up for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool Companion to the Series This is a fun companion to the series! Would recommend to fans of the full series but not necessary as it doesn't add to the main storyline.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sense of humour. One of my favourite things about the Unfortunate Events books is the humour in the way they are written, this book continues with that and is a great read if you're a fan of the others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The World is Quiet Here It takes a smart and kunning mind and sharp imagination to unscramble the enigmas and dangers wrapped in these pages. But never the less, I succeded. I find A Series of Unfortunate Events extremely captivating as well as relaxed. It is difficult for me to believe that someone could plan out a magnificent story such as this. For example, one statement said in the first installement could be brought back into focus in one of the later books. In a way, it's complicated, but if you think about it, simple in it's own special way. The unauthorized autobiography, along with the Beatrice Letters, are like the key missing points while reading this series. It puts it all together, like adding the last ingredient to your drinks for your cocktail party. This explains all of the questions swirling around in your mind. It blows it all away, revealing most, but adds a certain amount of more things to be answered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Things Of Legends Let me begin by stating that I have read multitudes of books in my lifetime, classic literature, popular trends, and the likes, but never have I encountered a work of fiction that captured my imagination like A Series Of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. Lose your preconceived notions: despite the illustrations on the covers, these books are masterpieces to be appreciated and devoured by the oldest and youngest of intelligent minds. The author uses literature, mind-games, and secrets to such an extent that your reality takes second seat as these books begin to occupy your every waking thought. Rivaling the twists and turns of the greatest of conspiracy novels, VFD is a secret that truely takes over these books. The protagonists and villains are so multi-dimensional, and so richly written, that you can not help but want to know everything there is to know about them. All the way to its mind-blowing finish, this series takes control of your being, to such extent that more than a year after 'The End' was published, I am still contemplating these novels. I have taken enough of your time, now go read this series, while I re-read it for the fifth time. --------------------------------------------------------------------- The Unauthorized Autobiography is the key to the series, and you MUST READ IT to understand all that the series has to offer.
