As I announced earlier, I am going to re-read all thirteen books in A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket in 2016. Or at least I am planning to. I will update this page every time I finish one of the books and will include brief thoughts on each book as I go. I am very excited to get back into this world and see how the books fare a decade on from my original reading as a fourteen year old.
Book the First: The Bad Beginning.
Finished: 31st December 2015.
I had forgotten just how funny and how dark these books were, and so clever. I had also forgotten just how much I hated Count Olaf but was also entranced by him in equal measure.
Book the Second: The Reptile Room.
Finished: 2nd January 2016.
I always saw this book as the real beginning of the series. Introductions were done, we knew that Olaf was on the run and would inevitably turn up again at some point but hoped that the Baudelaire children would actually find some kind of peace, and with the arrival of Uncle Montgomery Montgomery you would hope that they would of found just that. One other thing I loved about this one. The Incredible Deadly Viper.
Book the Third: The Wide Window.
Book the Fourth: The Miserable Mill.
Book the Fifth: The Austere Academy.
Book the Sixth: The Ersatz Elevator.
Book the Seventh: The Vile Village.
Book the Eighth: The Hostile Hospital.
Book the Ninth: The Carnivorous Carnival.
Book the Tenth: The Slippery Slope.
Book the Eleventh: The Grim Grotto.
Book the Twelfth: The Penultimate Peril.
Book the Thirteenth: The End.
