I was going to recommend the Myth
series, but I could not find the entire series in eBook format. I know maybe one or two are available. But even in paper format they are worth a read.
I did see the movie (A Series of Unfortunate Events
) and it was good, but not really funny. So do you think the books are better then the movie?
