Top Ten Best a Series of Unfortunate Events Books

The Top Ten

1 The Penultimate Peril

The most genius of the lot. Wes Anderson meets Agatha Christie

This book is my absolute FAVOURITE out of the 13. I really like how Justice Strauss and Jerome Squalor come back but it is quite sad that the Baudalaire parents killed the parents of Count Olaf.

The best, as it's set in a hotel! Who doesn't love that?

Very fun and dramatic! Loved it!

2 The Austere Academy

The Quagmires are wonderful characters, and this is one of the most hilarious volumes in the saga!

I was wondering if Nero really had always been on count Olafs side. But life is a mystery, so I guess we'll never know.

8 The Slippery Slope

You find out a lot in this one but it's sad that violet dosnt stay with quigley! - Lukerower

9 The Miserable Mill

His one is kinda boring it deserves to be at the bottom. Nothing really happens and at first it's also kind of slow going.

The only one I've read, and it is boring - Bramblestar

Not as unique as any of the others - Retroman64

This one is completely unbelievable (who sends kids to work at a lumbermill? ) and also it's got a really boring plot apart from the end - Lukerower

10 The Carnivorous Carnival

This books one of the best but also a but slow - Lukerower

*bit - Lukerower

11 The Ersatz Elevator

12 The Vile Village
