Daniel Handler's A Series of Unfortunate Events, written under his Lemony Snicket pseudonym, delves into a great many intriguing themes -- the blindness and dysfunctionality of modern society; living with uncertainty and incomplete information; the ambiguity of moral judgments; society's tendency to clash and schism. These themes are constant and developed throughout the series.
In addition, there is a very distinct tone that Handler maintains in all his Snicket work -- quirkiness, idiosyncrasy, and dark, deadpan humor.
Do Handler's work aimed for adults, have similar themes and/or tone? Or are they extremely different, in nature?
