I think it is dumb how people say that Series of Unfortunate Events are sad and they had no warning.But CLEARLY it says 'If you do not like sad stories put this book down emeadiatley.'As for MY judgment of these dreary unfortunate books.I like them!

These are great fun for adults...our family seems to be competing to see who can finish them first! The youngest reader in our family is 23! Long live Lemony Snicket!

I think that he could do better in a sense. I have read all of his books and to me the Blank Book is a waste of pages.

If you're someone who loves exciting books then the Series of Unfortunate Events are the books for you. After a couple of books you start to wonder things you didn't wonder in the first few books such as what does v.f.d. stand for and who might have survived the fire that burnt down the Baudelaire orphans' house. There are more things that keep you reading these books. That is what makes these books exciting.

When i came to barnes and nobles .com, i freaked out on this book.It wasnt availabe in my country india, so when my grandfather visited, i made sure he got it for me. Its great to write down stuff and specially the mysteries that my best friend Avani and I try to solve.

A mysterios collection of information on the Bauldaliere children that keeps you guessing what will happen next. It has some other mysteries that are still unsolved. The autobiography tells you some facts that even makes you wonder about other things in this story.

This book is a journal for unfortunate events in the life of the writer. In this book, you get to become Lemony Snicket. Writing your own series of unfortunate events. You write anything you loathed in your life. An angry teacher, a gruesome bully, or a bad day in the writers life.

I've been using this to uncover the mysteries of what parents talk about when they think the kiddos are in bed. Definitely get this. It is very useful for recording the strange and arcane (a word which means 'obstruse', which is a word that means 'obsolete', which is a word that means 'entirely useless to anyone besides me, or anyone who can read my arcane, mysterious, miserable and upsetting runic language. In other words, (a sentence which means 'to rephrase') only me. I gaurd this book with the life of the parakeet who belongs to my second cousin once removed. As she cannot speak (which, contrary to public opinion, is quiet common among birds), she is a very trusty confidante. This book, with it's sinister stickers, pernicious pages, and quickly quieting quotes, is most definitely worth your valuable money from your upsetting Visa card. The ways of credit cards are a long lost secret.
