In the tradition of great storytellers, from Dickens to Dahl, comes an exquisitely dark comedy that is both literary and irreverent, hilarious and deftly crafted. Never before has a tale of three likeable and unfortunate children been quite so enchanting, or quite so uproariously unhappy.

Are you made fainthearted by death? Does fire unnerve you? Is a villain something that might crop up in future nightmares of yours? Are you thrilled by nefarious plots? Is cold porridge upsetting to you? Vicious threats? Hooks? Uncomfortable clothing?

It is likely that your answers will reveal A Series of Unfortunate Events to be ill-suited for your personal use. A librarian, bookseller, or acquaintance should be able to suggest books more appropriate for your fragile temperament. But to the rarest of readers we say, Proceed, but cautiously.

Interestingly Gloomy
By: Inas Junus

This is one of my favorite series . The story is gloomy since the first page of the first book (that's why it's called "The Unfortunate Events"), even the author included warnings on the back side. But the characters are relatable, and you will have absolutely NO IDEA about what will happen next (except if you already have watched the movie or the series). I recommend this book to anyone who can endure the beginning of 13-books-series full of sadness, adventure, books, evil people, and siblinghood
