    I m fairly sure I ve never read 12 books in one series before with the possible exception of Enid Blyton s Famous Five which I read in random order with gaps, because they re all stand alones.To be honest, I don t think that even as a child I would have reached 12 in the Series of Unfortunate Events which is not to say that they are bad books, testimony to my need for change.Anyway, I m reading these to my daughter and we re in til the bitter end Book 13.This volume takes place almost entirely within the boundaries of the Hotel Denouement Much of the humour derives from the fact that the hotel is arranged according to the Dewy Decimal system I suspect that the author took pleasure in this than his audience of ten year olds library cataloging humor being somewhat dry for children.On the plus side we get to see many old favorites from other books, all summoned, whether villains or volunteers, to the hotel for a grand meeting party.Despite or perhaps in defiance of the title, don t expect many mysteries to be unfurled, or many story lines to come to neat conclusions Confusion abounds, we don t know who can be trusted, what plans are afoot, or why.The sugar bowl remains of prime importance but we don t find out the reason.The already muddy lines between good and evil are trampled over still further Our heroic children are called upon to do their direst deeds yet, including murder ish and arson Good people come to the fore again, and fail, again Justice remains blind Doubt i...

    This is clearly the book Daniel was aching to write The best, most complex, most complete, most well constructed and most enlightening installment in the series This is the book with the denouement of the series, indeed, and the main theme of the novels shines darkly through to the end Kit s early insistence that the children will be able to observe nobility in others, to the final pages where nothing at all about nobility could be foggier, the moral ambiguity of adulthood and the wickedness in even the most well intentioned of people ends the book on a bittersweet note Just noble enough.Dreary indeed, but very very insightful and mature for what is much than a simple children s series I m interested to see how Olaf changes in the final installment view spoiler Handler has set up the book so that...

    same formula as all the others, but the plot thickens favorite snicketism from this volume the three adults smiled at the children, and the children smiled back, but of course the baudelaires were not born yesterday, an expression which means young or innocent enough to believe things certain people say about the world violet was born than fifteen years before this particular wednesday, and klaus was born approximately two years after that, and even sunny, who had just passed out of babyhood, was not born yesterday neither were you, unless of course i am wrong, in which case welcome to the world, little baby, and congratulations on learning to read so early in life as always, for me, the pleasure of reading these books lies not in the often disparaged formulaic plot for me, the enjoyment comes from mr snicket s use of language i find them fun, just don t make the mistake of taking them too seriously look around, he s sparked a whole slew of imitators, but nothing at lea...

    Here s the point The Penultimate Peril continues to tie it all together, and the return on your investment is shockingly huge Lemony Snicket manages to tease out a few underlying themes, like what to think when good people let you down, and whether doing evil things makes you an evil person There are incredible images here of reflections, fire and justice The illustrations are also picture perfect And even though the series grows dimmer and darker, it still manages to be one of the funniest I ve ever read I don t get it I also don t understand why this is called a c...

    I liked this book much than many of the others The mystery and everything is slowly becoming uncovered I will do a full series review in my review of the last book.

    This is by far the most complex and interesting book out of the series I just adored the whole concept of the Hotel Denouement and all the mysteries it contained And once again we re introduced to a bunch of new and quite interesting characters that really add...

    3.75 another fun addition to the series I really enjoyed all characters that returned in this and the fact that the Baudelaire s somewhat had people on their side I can t wait to see how this all wraps up in the end I m just hoping although doubting all my question will finally be answered
