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.

Just amazing how everything pieces together so well, just amazing from start to end.

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

The Reptile Room The Reptile Room Product Image

Amazing! Uncle Monty was a great character, Count Olaf becomes a main character, and the argument about who should drive with who is hands down the best dialogue exchange in the series. Definitely my number 1.

Never a dull moment and Uncle Monty is so nice and perfect for the kids.

Just great. I'm Stephano. I'm uh Italian man. Count Olaf's disguise was very funny in this book.

Really good. I thought it was interesting.

The Austere Academy The Austere Academy Product Image

I love the Quagmires! My favorite characters! It's just sad we didn't get to see them, but, this is defineately my favorite book. (Mostly because there's more people around & it's funny. Also, the Quagmires are in it.)

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.

Isadora and Duncan are one of my favourite characters. Conversation ended.

The Ersatz Elevator The Ersatz Elevator Product Image

I think this book deserves more of a 5 and I just love esme squalor and jerome

This ones alright but not really unfortunate

Hands down best...

This is much better than the austere academy. I 💕 love this
In my top 3

The End The End Product Image

When Count Olaf turn goog only to die before delivering his last words that would probably have fully redeemed himself is probably the most tragic thing these books did. (Besides not killing off Mr. Poe)

I've never read the last book but my friend has and he has read the whole series and he likes the last one the best and I believe him.

Oh yah this one is the best and the longest. It's so exciting and fun totally my favorite.

For some CRAZY reason I felt a little bad for count Olaf when he died.

The Grim Grotto The Grim Grotto Product Image

Eh. Good book but kind of feels unnecessary. to be honest I feel like books 9-11 are all kind of bland and unnecessary. Would have been happier with series if they were attached to book 8 as smaller stories. Really each book in this set has only 50 pages of necessary information, the rest is just filler. My opinion though, anybody agree?

The Wide Window The Wide Window Product Image

I love this book. I think the plot is great but Aunt Josephine was really a bad guardian. It feels like the baudelaires were Aunt Josephines guardian. Overall this was a really evil and horrible scheme.

The overall melancholy tone is amazing, just like the creative death of Aunt Josephine and of course, her house.

One of my many brilliant schemes, the wide window perfectly demonstrates how treacherous I can be.

This book was awesome. Loved the plot. Every series of unfortunate events book is awesome

The Slippery Slope The Slippery Slope Product Image

Good book, but seems like it could be easily shortened and adapted to just make grim grotto longer, so sort of unnecessary. But still underrated and deserves more attention.

I love how there is a love story to this book

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

Sunny baudelair is my favourite

The Bad Beggining The Bad Beggining Product Image

Why is it spelled wrong?
And why is it at number 9? It deserves number two or better. It starts everything off nicely (or should I say horribly) and the whole series would be horrible if this book wasn’t as good as it is. The thing that makes reptile room better than it is justice Strauss, a thoroughly annoying character who let down the Baudelaire terribly, marrying Violet to Count Olaf. How could she not have thought of the implications? She’s a judge, she should know marital law like the back of her hand! Anyway great book.

The first one is the best because it introduces you to the next book.

First is always the best!

Starts off really slow

The Carnivorous Carnival The Carnivorous Carnival Product Image

Kinda confusing, moves too fast and too slow at the same time. Ambidextrous Kevin is the most annoying character not just in this book, but in the whole series. I get that it’s a joke, but lemony took it way too far.

This books one of the best but also a but slow

The Contenders

The Vile Village The Vile Village Product Image

This ones too unfortunate too enjoy and I hate all the rules so much

I loved all of these books, but the Vile Village is my favourite.

Filled with satire. The best in the series so far, in my opinion.

Underrated, deserves better placing. I really like this book.

The Hostile Hospital The Hostile Hospital Product Image

This is where the plot really thickens. The Baudelaires find out that one of their parents might be alive, they question if they are really the good guys, and count Olaf got smarter. Seriously, he doesn’t show his face until he has to escape. Also, Hal was introduced.

So, I really like its plot.

The Miserable Mill The Miserable Mill Product Image

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.

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

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

Not as unique as any of the others
