On my last post I posted on Lemony Snicket’s Horseradish bitter truths you can’t avoid and this time I am going to post on a Series of Unfortunate event. The Unauthorized Autobiography. This is a book which is mainly about the Lemony Snicket, you may rather not read this post because you will find your life in despair. It can answer some questions about Lemony Snicket and V.F.D questions like. Why was Mr Snicket’s death published in the newspaper? Why has Mr Snicket dedicated his life to the Baudelare case?
Why does Count Olaf have a tattoo of an eye on his ankle? What is V.F.D.? Where are the Qagmire Triplets now? How many associates does Count Olaf have?
There are eight more questions but I decided I would tell you some of the stuff in there. First I will just tell you a bit about why Mr Snicket dedicated his life to the Baudelaire case. I will post a bit on the letter that R W sent Mr Snicket.

My dear Mr Snicket

You are alive and relatively well! Last night, when I arrived at the Orion Observatory to give my annual lecture to the Meteorological Society, I saw someone breaking into a navy blue Jeep parked in the south west corner of the parking lot, and my heart leaped: perhaps there was a change you were still alive. I did not expect to find out for certain until the usher handed me your letter. You took a terrible chance in contacting me, but I am so sorry that I was unable to prevent, or at least delay your capture at my masked ball that evening, and I have been worried sick all these years that you were dead, despite rumours of your activities spreading through the network of loyal members. There are not many of us left, Mr Snicket, but we are ready to help you in any way we can. O Mr Snicket, everything you kept in my house is gone. Your bullfighting costume is gone, along with all of the other disguises you kept with me; the fake wooden leg, the box of wigs, and that strange suit that enabled you to look like a chest of drawers. Your typewriter is gone and the bright blue accordion, which I believe you told me was your third favourite. Everything in that guest room is gone, and all the things in the guest room next door. Beatrice, of course, is far past complaining about lost possessions—the very reason, I am certain, that you have dedicated your life to researching the lives of those three poor children. Are they gone, too? It seems everything is nowadays.

With all due respect

I am sorry that is not the whole of the letter I didn’t have enough room to put the whole letter if you want the whole letter you will have to read it yourself, but does that letter give you any clues to the question why Mr Snicket dedicated his life to the Baudelaire case. I am sorry there is no more room to put any think else in if you want to hear any more you will have to get your own copy if you really are interested and want to know more them you may find your own copy at amazon .

I got two books by Lemony Snicket for my fifteenth birthday, one was Horseradish Bitter Truths you can't avoid and, the other was the Unauthorized Autobiography of a Series of Unfortunate Events. I am going to do a post on Horseradish first. Horseradish is an amazing book it's all about all the hard bitter parts of life, and how to react to them, there are some things in this book which are not quite right, because Lemony Snicket is not a Christian, but I think there are some interesting true things in there. Here are some quotes.
"There is something marvelous about returning home at the end of a long day, even if there is tuna fish for dinner."
I think this is a true saying.
But this next quote is one I disagree with.
"There are some poeple who say that you should forgive everyone, even people who have dissappointed you immeasurably. There are others who say you should stomp off in a huff no matter how mant times they apologise. Of these two philosophies, the second is more fun, but it can also grow exhausting to stomp off in a huff every time someone has dissapointed you, as everyone disappoints everyone eventually, and one can't stomp off in a huff every minute of the day.
The author is coming to the right Biblical conclusions, we should forgive others all the time but I think he has the wrong reasons for thinking this, he is making a joke of it really.
Here is another quote which I think is very true.
"Deciding on the right thing to do in a situation is a bit like deciding on the right thing to wear to a party, such as deep sea diving equipment or a pair of large pillows, but deciding what is right is much trickier. The truth is that you can never be sure if you have decided on the right thing until the party is over, and by then it is too late to go back and change your mind, which is why the world is filled with people doing terrible things and wearing ugly clothing." I think that passage is true in a worldly sense, sometimes we just don't know what to wear or do, but we have the bible so we have more of an idea of what is right and what is wrong and as for the things we dont know are right or wrong we shoud go by our conscience, if our conscience tells us that somethink is wrong ,them we should not do it. There is one part of horseradish that says," It is difficult to make one's way in this world without being wicked to begin with. "
I think this is true but the Bible says, " What shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his own soul."
I think it is not difficult to be wicked, it is simply impossible to be good. Rom 6:23 "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God"
Thanks for reading this post about Lemony Snicket's horseradish, you might like to get a copy your self, it may help you as it has for me. You can look it up on amazon .

I think that all of the series of unfortunate events are good but the last book was the one I liked the least. There are some questions that I thought would have been answered in the thirteenth volume ,but they remained unanswered, questions such as what was inside the suger bowl ? What was the great unknown ? There's someone on the Internet who thought of the question, "Who are the man with a beared and no hair, and the woman with hair and no beared". But to me,( I didn't need to know their names, the illustration that Lemony Snicket gives is enough for me) a person on the internet thought that the mystery man in the Penultimate Peril was actually Lemony Snicket himself. When the Baudauleres had accidently killed Dewey Danoumure with the harpoon gun, a mystery man tried to get the Bodalares to come with him in the taxi . Lemony Snicket knew all about the man in the taxi and that he might have picked up the sugar bowl. You may think what's important about a sugar bowl, the book doesn't tell you, but it lets you know it's very important. This person on the internet thinks that the 'great unknown 'was owned by the man with the beard and no hair and the woman with hair and no beard. I don't know if this man on the internet is correct, I am sorry I dont know who they are and I wish book thirteen had told me. I won't tell you anymore you will have to read the book for yourself.

this the a series of unrortnate events audio book that I have got

I am not sure whether you have read Lemony Snicket's .A Series of Unfortunate Events, but I decided I wouldd tell you a bit about it. It begins on one perfectly normal day at Brimy Beach, when three children were throwing rocks in the water ,when a banker of the name of Mr Poe came up to them and coughed into his hankerchief saying," your parents have perished in a fire that has destroyed your entire home. "
This small short sentence had changed the childrens lives for ever. Mr Poe had to find a guardian for them, sadly he was a greedy and villianias man called Count Olaf, a dispicable villian, with a tatoo on his ancle. I think I forgot to mention that the orphans parents had left an enormous fortune for the children when Violet the eldest was of age, Count Olaf tried his hardest to get this enormous fortune. Unlike a lot of villians, Count Olaf was really clever, which meant that he could think of scheme after scheme to get this enormous fortune. Frst he tried to marry Violet which in that plan he failed because Violet signed the marriage note with her left hand and she was right handed so Count Olaf didn't have the fortune not yet any way. That was the end of Count Olaf taking care of them because of him trying to get the fortune. Mr Poe phoned the police but before the police got there, Count Olaf had gone. You may think that the Bodelares never heard of Count Olaf again, but you are wrong if thats what you think ,some how Count Olaf found them again when they were in there new Guardians home, but this time he was in disguise. He was disguised as Dr Mountgunnery's assistant. This time Count Olaf murdered the children's guardian and tried to take them to Peru, but at the very last minute Count Olaf's disguise was revealed and once again Mr Poe tried to call the police, once again Count Olaf ran away before the police got there, and the children found that what ever home they went to Count Olaf folowed them thinking of scheme after scheme to steal the Bodalare fortune.
