    Published September 30, 1999 – October 13, 2006

    is a series of thirteen children's novels written by American author Daniel Handler under the pen name Lemony Snicket. The books follow the turbulent lives of Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire. After their parents' death in a fire, the children are placed in the custody of a murderous relative, Count Olaf, who attempts to steal their inheritance and, later, orchestrates numerous disasters with the help of his accomplices as the children attempt to flee. As the plot progresses, the Baudelaires gradually confront further mysteries surrounding their family and deep conspiracies involving a secret society known as V.F.D.

    Characterized by Victorian Gothic tones and absurdist textuality,[5][6] the books are noted for their dark humor, sarcastic storytelling, and anachronistic elements, as well as frequent cultural and literary allusions.[3][7] They have been classified as postmodern and metafictional writing, with the plot evolution throughout the later novels being cited as an exploration of the psychological process of the transition from the idyllic innocence of childhood to the moral complexity of maturity.[8][9][10] As the series progresses, the Baudelaires' actions become morally ambiguous, blurring the lines between which characters should be read as "good" or "evil."[5][11][12] Literary scholars have analyzed gender, morality, narrative style, the power of secrets, repetition, and intertextuality in the series.

    Since the release of the first novel, , in September 1999, the books have gained significant popularity, critical acclaim, and commercial success worldwide, spawning a film, a video game, assorted merchandise and a television series on Netflix. The main thirteen books in the series have collectively sold more than 60 million copies and have been translated into 41 languages.[13][14] Several companion books set in the same universe of the series have also been released, including , and the noir prequel tetralogy , which chronicles Snicket's childhood.[15]

    Prior to the publication of , Handler had never written for children.[16] According to an interview with Handler, he was encouraged to try writing children's books by his friend and editor, Susan Rich.[17] In a separate author interview, Daphne Merkin writes that Handler adapted a manuscript for a "mock-gothic" book originally intended for adults into a series more suited for children.[16] Handler invented the pseudonym "Lemony Snicket" as an inside joke among friends years before the publication of .

    Handler acknowledges Edward Gorey and Roald Dahl as influences for his writing style in the series.[18] The first book in the series was , released on September 30, 1999.

    Series overview[edit]


    The series follows the adventures of three orphaned siblings. Lemony Snicket documents their lives and explains to the readers that very few positive things happen to the children.

    The series begins when the orphans are at a beach alone, when they receive news that their parents were killed in a fire that also destroyed the family mansion. In , they are sent to live with a distant relative named Count Olaf after briefly living with Mr. Poe, a banker in charge of the orphans' affairs. The siblings discover that Count Olaf intends to get his hands on the enormous Baudelaire fortune, which Violet is to inherit when she reaches the age of eighteen. In the first book, Olaf attempts to marry Violet to steal the Baudelaire fortune, and pretends that the marriage is the storyline for his latest play, but the plan falls through when Violet uses her non-dominant hand to sign the marriage document, thus causing the marriage to not be successful. After the crowd realizes, Olaf manages to escape with his henchmen.[19]

    In the following six books, Olaf disguises himself, finds the children, and, with help from his many accomplices, tries to steal their fortune, committing arson, murder, and other crimes. In the eighth through twelfth books, the orphans adopt disguises while on the run from the police after Count Olaf frames them for one of his murders. The Baudelaires routinely try to get help from Mr. Poe, but he, like many of the adults in the series, is oblivious to the dangerous reality of the children's situation.

    A Series of Unfortunate Events Series

    by Lemony Snicket (111 reviews)

    A Series Of Unfortunate Events is a witty yet tragic set of books which tell of the unfortunate events in the lives of the three Baudelaire children. Violet Baudelaire is the oldest of them - she is an inventor. In every situation they find themselves in, Violet’s younger siblings can always count on her to conjure up a resourceful machine to aid their escape. Klaus is in the middle - he is the brains of the tragic trio. His knowledge of code breaking and logical mindset always come in handy. Sunny is the youngest out of her three siblings, but her secret power lies in her mouth. She is one of the few youngsters who have teeth as sharp as a shark’s, always helpful when they need to bite through a rope or get a villain off their back.

    Countless times they evade the notorious Count Olaf, a dastardly villain after their huge fortune, each of the thirteen books bringing a new challenge and mystery to the series. Every time one of their questions is answered, they get even more: what did their parents do; why had they never heard of any of their relatives; and, most importantly, what was VFD?

    About The A Series Of Unfortunate Events Books:

    Daniel Handler, writing under the pen name Lemony Snicket, is the New York Times award winning author of the immensely popular young readers’ series, A Series of Unfortunate Events. Since the release of the first title in the series in 1999, more than 60 million copies of the thirteen volume series have been sold.

    Harder, born in 1970, lives in San Francisco with wife Lisa Brown, and also dabbles as a screenwriter. Apart from the Unfortunate Events series and the Snicket character, Handler is well-respected for his recent series, All the Wrong Questions, the most recent of which, When Did You See Her Last, was released in mid-October 2013.

    The first three of the titles in the series have been made into a movie. Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, described as a black comedy fantasy film, was released in 2004. The movie was generally well received by critics and generated more than $200 million in worldwide sales. Jim Carrey played the lead role of Count Olaf Sonnenfield, while Jude Law narrated. Other notable actors in the films included comedian Billy Connolly, Meryl Streep and the inimitable character actor Timothy Spall. Some reviewers expressed disappointment at the fact that the movie was only loosely related to the plot of the books, while others criticized the movie as being too funny!

    Handler’s motivation for the series was provided by the unending diet of depressing daily news that all of us are exposed to; the crime, hardship, unfairness and violence that many of the vulnerable are regularly subjected to.

    Why Lemony Snicket?

    While researching his first book, The Basic Eight, Handler realized that if he was to receive the sort of “edgy” material that he needed, he would need to operate under a pseudonym. Lemony Snicket’s similarity to Jiminy Cricket was no accident; Snicket is the antithesis of the legendary moralistic wise narrator, a character trait that Handler reveals he despises.

    Snicket is the narrator throughout the series, hence the reason the works are published under Snicket’s name rather than Handler’s.

    Plot Outline

    The Series of Unfortunate Events follows he lives of three siblings, Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire who are orphaned after their parents are killed in an arson attack on their family home. They are sent to live with their distant cousin, Count Olaf Sonnenfield, who immediately begins to mistreat them. Count Olaf plots to claim their inheritance for himself but is initially foiled by the children’s estate executor, Arthur Poe, who removes them from Count Olaf’s care. Count Olaf then begins a reign of terror as he hunts the children down, with numerous characters meeting their demise in bloody circumstances. Arson, murder and various other nefarious acts are common place as Count Olaf and his numerous cronies’ battle to win the children’s inheritance. The children find it difficult to convince adults about the dangers they are faced with, but prove most resourceful and regularly turn the tables on the nefarious Count Olaf.

    As the plot develops, the Children learn about the mysterious organization called the V.F.D. that their parents were involved with.

    The children do have their happy moments throughout the series; it is not all dark and depressing. As the older two move into the teenage years, love interests are revealed and friendships are developed. The Quagmire families, orphans in a similar position to the Baudelaire’s, are introduced in the fifth volume and their friendship provides renewed hope for the Baudelaire’s in the depths of their despair.

    Snicket narrates the entire series and features, along with his mysterious but deceased love interest, Beatrice.

    The Timeless Setting?

    At first the story seems to be set in the early part of the 20th century, but Handler keeps us guessing as he regularly introduces technology that doesn’t fit the apparent time period. An example is provided in The Last Chance General Store where fiber optic cable is mentioned. Other seemingly out-of-place technologies include computers, credit cards and television.
