A Series of Unfortunate Events: Everything You Need to Remember From the Books
With clever allusions and quirky characters, A Series of Unfortunate Events emerges as a rite of passage for bookworm children everywhere. Daniel Handler, through his fictionalized alter ego as the morose writer Lemony Snicket, chronicles the grotesque tragedies that plague the Baudelaire children — aka the inventive Violet, bookish Klaus, and strong-toothed Sunny. Fans of the book have thoroughly loved Netflix's serialized adaptation of the popular novels, which boasts talent like Neil Patrick Harris, Jude Law, and Cobie Smulders.
Because the plots and characters are so richly developed over the series's 13 books, you might find yourself in need of a quick refresher on everything that took place in them. Here, we gather key details from each book to prepare you as the second season of the Netflix series creeps around the corner. Beware, we have serious spoilers ahead!
