About the Author

Lemony Snicket had an unusual education which may or may not explain his ability to evade capture. He is the author of the 13 volumes in A Series of Unfortunate Events, several picture books including The Dark, and the books collectively titled All The Wrong Questions.



Brett Helquist''s celebrated art has graced books from the charming Bedtime for Bear, which he also wrote, to the New York Times–bestselling A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket to the glorious picture book adaptation of Charles Dickens''s A Christmas Carol. He lives with his family in Brooklyn, New York.

Not a matching set
Reviewed in the United States on March 27, 2018
I’m a bit disappointed. I bought the complete, hard cover boxed set because they’ll be used by 4 kids. I prefer the durability of hardcover and like how they look on our bookshelf. However, 4 our of the 13 books are paperback.

Love these books and the set is gorgeous. I love the original style of the pages that is classic Series of Unfortunate Events. The box looks great on top of my shelf.
My only complaint is that they felt the need to put the Netflix sitckers in every book. Even if I’m careful to pull them off, I still pull off some of the slick coating and it’s noticeable in a certain light.

I was a bit nervous about ordering this due to some of the negative reviews, but it''s not as bad as I feared. Minor cosmetic damage along the top of the spine on book 11. The word ''Snickett'' on the top of the spine and the logo on the bottom are slightly misprinted (smudged) on almost every single book. The Netflix stickers aren''t as intrusive as I thought they would be, but I''m still definitely removing them (pro tip: a hair drier loosens the adhesive, so you can remove stickers without damaging the covers).

Overall a good boxset, a great series (with a mediocre end, depending on how you look at it), and a good bargain at this price.

Great box set. This is my 9 year old sons favorite book series, he says he feels like it was written just for him.

I, otoh, don''t love it. He asked me to read it with him and I''ve stalled out on book 12. The writing itself is excellent, very creative and witty. I just don''t love all the talk of murder and arson, in addition to the fact that the whole series feels like game of thrones for kids. And by that I mean bad stuff happens constantly. I hated GOT and barely managed to get through 4 books of it and this series gives me the same feelings: dread and depression. It''s just so hard to pick up a book and really want to know what terrible thing happens next. My son loved all the bad stuff though, so maybe I''m just weird. He also said he didn''t like the last book and it made him cry... now I''m less motivated than ever to finish! Three from me, five from the kid, four average.

very happy with this set! Daughter loves it. The sticker problem i have seen on previous comments was not an issue with our set. I was really worried the stickers would ruin the covers, but they must have heard all the complaints. Our books did come with stickers, but came off easily with no residue and no delamination of covers. Maybe it''s because we took the stickers off the day we received? Great set!

I purchased this series for myself, purely for nostalgia reasons. I grew up on these books (started reading them when I was 10) and loved them so much I wanted to make sure I had the complete set. Other customers mentioned issues with having pages, entire books or the collectors box missing. None of those issues here. All 13 books arrived on time, in the attractive box, shrink-wrapped, the way I anticipated. Other reviewers found the parchment cut pages problematic. The books I just received, have the same style edge however, any true original fan would know that this is how the hardbacks are supposed to look. I haven''t tried pulling off the Netflix stickers but that''s not bothersome either. If anything, years from now it''ll add to their value. It is worth noting that there appears to be a little wear and tear on the corners of the box but that is to be expected, being cardboard after all. On top of all of that, they are beautiful to look at on the shelf. Couldn''t be happier with my purchase.

Three things to get out of the way
1. The artwork on the box is amazing and I can''t bring myself to get rid of it. I normally never keep the boxes from these sets but this may be the first exception to the rule.

2. These are all first edition copies of the books and I''m quite surprised by that.

3. The stickers are the worst. Every book has one of these stickers advertising that the series is on netflix and they''re very annoying to remove. They can be removed with care and time but a mistake made while removing the sticker from "The Slippery Slope" tore a circular chunk of the outer film layer of the cover. Why were these things ever put on a boxed set at all?

The set is really good and the series is excellent so I must recommend them but those stickers were a mistake.

A really great series of books and written in a really stylised and consistent way. The Baudelaire children, Violet, Claus and Sunny have recently lost their parents in a fire, and what follows are the series of unfortunate events which stem from that. In the first few books they''re introduced to various different guardians including the dreaded Count Olaf, who is after the Baudelaire fortune. As the books go on the story becomes less formulaic as the children are accused of various crimes and have to branch out on their own. The mystery deepens with each book as the author/researcher skilfully drip feeds us information about the secret organisation that the Baudelaire parents were a part of. A really entertaining read that appeals to me as an adult and I''m sure is enjoyed by children around 12 years old (it''s a little dark for anyone younger I reckon). This is the second time I''ve read the whole sorry saga, and this is definitely the kind of story that rewards rereading. Enjoy!

Overall, they are a really good quality. The only issue I had with the books is the thirteenth book is not fully glued down at the spine meaning it is not completely secure which ruins the appearance slightly and can make it a little difficult to read if you are like me and do not crack the spine when reading. The outer packaging arrived slightly broken but as it did not affect the quality of the books I was not affected. The books arrived with little stickers on advertising the Netflix series but they easily peel off and do not affect the appearance if you do not wish them to be on there. I would definitely recommended these books as the quality was good and the appearance of them all is good and is a good series of books. They are a great read and I was able to easily finish the series within a few days.

I admit it, I’m an adult but I sometimes like reading children’s books. I bought these ones after watching the new TV series as it was so good I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next... unfortunately this has been one of those times when the TV show was much better than the books and as a result I’ve really been struggling to get through them. If like me, you’re a fan of the TV show, I would suggest you give the books a miss and wait for the next series, as there has been a lot of embelushment added to make the stories more interesting.

This was a bargain purchase for me as I''ve been looking for books to load my Kindle with to read to my son when we''re away on holiday. He''s just starting on his chapter book adventure and he enjoyed the Lemony Snicket film recently so this was a convenient way of introducing him to the books. The set contains all thirteen of the Series of Unfotunate Events and they are amongst the most attractive Kindle books I''ve seen with many of the little features that make the paper books look so great. I read the first few books as an adult and we have them in harcover but this is a really good value way of completing your set. I really enjoyed the books as an adult, I couldn''t resist reading them through, it''s a great way of plugging any gaps in your collection and having the books in a very portable way. I''m quite tempted to buy the hardcover set if my son enjoys these books as I''d love to have paper copies of the books too.

Rereading these now as an adult - they are great but I think I preferred them when I had to wait for the next one to be released. Like other reviewers have said, they’re quite repetitive if you read them back to back. Great for an older primary school child or young teenager. The kindle version has all 13 books all part of 1 ebook so it is very large (unlike the Harry Potter books where you buy them all as a bundle but they download as separate books).
