NOW A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES

Lemony Snicket returns with the last book before the last book of his bestselling A Series of Unfortunate Events. Scream and run away before the secrets of the series are revealed!

Very little is known about Lemony Snicket and A Series of Unfortunate Events. What we do know is contained in the following brief list:

  • The books have inexplicably sold millions and millions of copies worldwide
  • People in more than 40 countries are consumed by consuming Snicket
  • The movie was as sad as the books, if not more so
  • Like unrefrigerated butter and fungus, the popularity of these books keeps spreading

Even less is known about book the twelfth in this alarming phenomenon. What we do know is contained in the following brief list:

  • In this book, things only get worse
  • Count Olaf is still evil
  • The Baudelaire orphans do not win a contest
  • The title begins with the word ‘The’

Sometimes, ignorance is bliss.

In "The Penultimate Peril" it is starting to feel as if the series is drawing to an end. I just really, sincerely hope that "The End" will be a good end to the A Series Of Unfortunate Events series!
Over all this was a good book in the series. The first 4 books seemed as if the same things will happen in all 13 books: the Baudelaire orphans move to a new home and guardian, where Count Olaf finally finds them and tries to get their fortune in his clutches, etc. But from book 6 it gets clearer that there is a big mystery, and that somehow the strangest things suddenly seem to be connected.
Not my favourite series but it's good.

The puns continue to multiply as the orphans spend this episode at the Hotel Denouement and encounter many of the folks from their previous unfortunate events. They continue their battle against Count Olaf and the dilemma of falling over to the dark side. Ready for The End in the final book.

A VERY GOOD BOOK

TheCool100 Aug 26, 2013

The Baudelaires are in a peril when they have to work in a hotel. They have to sleep at their desk and do hard work for no reason at all. Just because one man decided to burn down their house and kill their parents. And in the end of the book, they are faced with a difficult task of doing something they would never do in a million years.
