This book did not ciece to amaze me. THe imaginative plot keeps the book unique and the witty writing style of Lemony Snicket can really just transport you to another world. If you are considering this book just go for it. An amazing read and one I would definitely recommend! ( )

I’m 5 books into this series and have yet to form a concrete opinion of it.

There’s quite a bit to like in a kid’s series that frequently wanders off onto dark and morbid rabbit trails, with 3 indomitable youngsters who see reality clearly, but refuse to give in to their hopeless circumstances.

There is also quite a bit that I am not crazy about, primarily the repetitive formulaic storylines. Shuffling about the people and locations, the adults range from friendly to hostile, but anyone not in cahoots with Olaf is clueless and dismissive of the children’s warnings, anyone kind enough to help the orphans risks mortal peril, and I completely expect Count Olaf to make a last minute escape approximately 7 more times before he is captured, or perhaps he will meet a dark and ironic end. I am also not overfond of the author’s propensity for stating the obvious. If he has to foreshadow (which he obviously does, because it’s a pretty constant feature) at least he makes it overly dramatic. I get that it’s his thing, but giving multiple *nudge, nudge; wink, wink* clues to the same event seems a bit much. Maybe the idea is for kids to know what’s coming so it’s not terribly scary or overwhelming when it happens?

I liked this book more than previous installments, because we learned just a little more about Count Olaf, and there’s the potential of unraveling more about his past and other despicable crimes he has perpetrated, which would provide a little variety to the story’s formula. I also did find myself chuckling out loud at more of the author’s asides in this book, so hopefully that bodes well for future books as well. ( )

Dear reader:
If you are looking for a story about cheerful youngsters spending a jolly time at boarding school, look elsewhere. Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire are intelligent and resourceful children, and you might expect that they would do very well at school. Don't. For the Baudelaires, school turns out to be another miserable episode in their unlucky lives.

Finally, a new pair of good guy characters without the same tired character traits. I liked the twins who were actually triplets minus one. The rest of the characters were annoying. The story was long and reminiscent of the last story in the series. The most unfortunate thing that I've realized about this series is that there are 13 of these, all bestsellers, and I've only enjoyed one of them so far. That's not a great success rate. I keep reading however, though I don't expect it to get any better. Call it a penchant for misery. ( )

I like the idea of a series of unfortunate events unfolding over a collection of 13 books of 13 chapters apiece, but the books are beginning to be a bit one-note. I'm still enjoying the voice and the asides and the very thin but still compelling Beatrice subplot and of course the sometimes charmingly refracted pedantry, but I wouldn't mind a little reworking of the formula as I begin to head toward the midpoint of the series. The introduction of the Quagmire triplets was nice. ( )

If you were going to give a gold medal to the least delightful person on Earth, you would have to give that medal to a person named Carmelita Spats, and if you didn't give it to her, Carmelita Spats was the sort of person who would snatch it from your hands anyway.

If you have walked into a museum recently --- whether you did so to attend an art exhibition or to escape from the police --- you may have noticed a type of painting known as a triptych.
Assumptions are dangerous things to make, and like all dangerous things to make -- bombs, for instance, or strawberry shortcake -- if you make even the tiniest mistake you can find yourself in terrible trouble. Making assumptions simply means believing things are a certain way with little or no evidence that shows you are correct, and you can see at once how this can lead to terrible trouble.
There is no worse sound in the world than someone who cannot play the violin but insists on doing so anyway.
Mr. Poe meant well, but a jar of mustard probably also means well and would do a better job of keeping the Baudelaires out of danger.
