Guest Blogger Review – Mercy (age 10): A Series of Unfortunate Events

In my opinion, A Series of Unfortunate Events is a really good series. Lemony Snicket did a very good job on these books. You may have heard of them. If you haven’t read the books, I recommend reading them.

The main characters are Violet, Klaus, Sunny, and Count Olaf. Violet, Klaus, and Sunny are the Baudelaire siblings. Count Olaf is the villain in the books and is always chasing the siblings around in order to get their fortune. The question is, can the Baudelaire siblings use their special abilities to not get put into Count Olaf’s clutches?

Although all the books are good, there are a couple that seem to drag on; but you should stick with them because they play parts in some of the later books. Don’t stop because you think that the books get worse because the last four books are the best.

My favorite books are books 10, 11, 12, and 13. Book 10 is called The Slippery Slope, book 11 is called The Grim Grotto, book 12 is called The Penultimate Peril and book 13 is called The End. I like book 10 because Sunny learns a new skill and passes out of babyhood. Also the Baudelaire siblings learn about a secret organization. I enjoyed book 11 because they meet a girl and her stepfather. They go into a grim grotto to find something and then they have to save Sunny. But I won’t tell you how because then I would spoil the suspense of it. So if you want to find out, you will have to read the series. Book 12 was good because they meet up with characters they met previously. They go to a hotel and have to solve problems for people at the hotel. Finally, book 13, my personal favorite, was a good book because they meet up with a friend from the hotel and have to solve problems on the island that they get ship wrecked on.

*Warning! Warning! Warning!* These stories are not as happy as other books and good things don’t happen as often as in some other books, but they are still really good. Therefore, I really suggest reading A Series of Unfortunate Events. They are amazing books, and very well written. Thank you, Lemony Snicket.
