Ugh, yes.  I Lemony Snicket's Authorial Comments.  They are in fact what kept me from ever reading beyond Book 1.  I found them all too-too self-consciously clever and arch. I particularly disliked the ones where he explained the meaning of words.  I mean, I know he thought he was being funny with the definitions, but it seemed condescending towards the reader.  In fact, the entire narrative style was condescending.
