Still one of my favorites from the series. ( )
The sixth book, The Ersatz Elevator, finds the Baudelaire's back in their hometown, just a couple of streets over from where they used to live. With their parents. When life was good.
This time they've been placed with friends of their parents, the Squalors who live in a penthouse on 667 Dark Avenue. Which on a side note, the puns and other easter egg references crack me up. Jerome and Esme Squalor are a mixed bag. One is kind, the other is fashionable. One is a pushover, the other is a pushee. Their lives are dictated by what is "in" and what is "out". Fortunately for the Baudelaire's, orphans are "in". Unfortunately elevators are out which means a lot of stairs.
Living with the Squalors is strange but certainly could be worse - they could be kidnapped like the Quagmire triplets were. Sick with worry about their friends, the Squalors barely rate on their list. ...and then Count Olaf appears.
The logic on this one was a bit weird. I never really got how this was going to get Olaf the Baudelaire's fortune. It really wasn't the best regarding the Quagmire's either since they were previously already out of the country.
The Baudelaire's climb up and down the elevator shaft multiple times coming up with a plan but are foiled by
Anyways so the Quagmire's are auctioned off, hidden in a big box with the letters VFD printed on the side.
I have more questions than the Baudelaire's have misfortune and I already know I'll likely never know the answers to them. How frustrating. Still, an action packed read. 3 stars.
Ugh I hate adults so much
Book 6 of 13 of the phenomenal series: Series of Unfortunate Events! This one was arguably more sillier than the rest of the series, as it introduces another recurring character that is so ridiculous you can't help but dislike her. That said, this was another one that I really liked. Not sure if a *favorite* in the series, but it certainly is an honorable mention.
Please Read my review of the series here, as my review applies to every book in the series. https://www.librarything.com/work/1748/reviews/227861550
in this, the 6th installment of a series of unfortunate events, the story starts to get really interesting again and much less formulaic than the first few books.
