Dear Reader,

You have undoubtedly picked up this book by mistake, so please put it down. Nobody in their right mind would read this particular book about the lives of Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire on purpose, because each dismal moment of their stay in the village of V.F.D. has been faithfully and dreadfully recorded in these pages. I can think of no single reason why anyone would want to open a book containing such unpleasant matters as migrating crows, an angry mob, a newspaper headline, the arrest of innocent people, the Deluxe Cell, and some very strange hats. It is my solemn and sacred occupation to research each detail of the Baudelaire children's lives and write them all down, but you may prefer to do some other solemn and sacred thing, such as reading another book instead.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favourite series! I started reading these books in elementary school and continued reading into my teenage years. Daniel Handler aka Lemony Snicket can twist and play with words like no other and his style is a delight to read. Although the unfortunate events are numerous, this is more than a depressing read. The Baudelaires are truly resilient and it's inspiring and comforting all at once. #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Part Seven of an Interesting Series All of my friends and I were reading these book when they came out back in our elementary school days. They were different than anything on the market, and we couldn't get enough of it. There was always something to discuss amongst friends during the reading of this series, and all of us in particular remember the entire page on which was written exclusively, and excessively, very, very, very... An excellent series to introduce to younger readers. #plumreviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Book I never really enjoyed reading until in school i was forced to read this series and now im hooked on them

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Less Exciting This is another epic novel writen by Lemony Snicket. This book is not very exciting to the point it is boring. All the other books have a very big climax.... not this one though. This book is better than some books and worse than others. Only read this book so you won't be lost in The Hostile Hospital

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond Compare Snicket writes yet another hilarious tale of the exciting adventures of the Baudelaire orphans. The Vile Village out does J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vile Village -Snicket Out Does Himself Best Yet! I could not put it down. The whole plot becomes more complex while never confusing. The reader can only anticipate a small amount of what could come in the next versions. I beleive the author must have been having a wonderful time spinning this story! Through the series, the author identifies some society attitudes which are deliciously roasted, well done! While my 13 year old is a big fan, I, as an adult, am hooked on what is the true story about Beatrice and the Author and how they all will end up being part of the "whole story". Read all the series in order. Marvelous book. This is a series unto itself, not really any others that take the same tac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Vile Village The Vile Village by Lemony Snicket is a well-written Young Adult novel. He has equipped the narrative part with a dry sense of humor throughout the whole series which makes the book more enjoyable through the description and narrating. The characters are described well, and the book has so many twists and turns that it leaves you figuring out the plot after you finish. His style of writing is so dry, it's almost as if the narrative has an english accent! The villain is always in a disguise that is easy to uncover, and the new "sidekick villain" is yet, unnoticeable. Overall, The Vile Village by Lemony Snicket is wonderfully written, and is a great addition to the books in the series A Series of Unfortunate Events. I look forward to reading #8. (He has promised thirteen books.)
