To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought all 13 books already with my own money, so i intend to finish the series, but it's hard when these books are sometimes not interesting enough. This book has some suspense like V.F.D. and the Ersatz elevator shaft leading to the remains of the Baudelaire mansion, but it seems that it was not as suspenseful as the 5th book for some reason. I think that these books will become more suspenseful and interesting as the series continues, but right now it is just not to that point. I think this series is good so far, but the plot is overly repeated, so as that the reader and almost guess to what is exactly going to happen. I think/know that the Harry Potter series is better then this series. You should read that series if you want a real good read with a lot of suspense, interest, and magic.
In this book, the Baudelaires experienced the temporary peace with their new guardian, Jerome Squalor. He is kind but does not deal hard with his wife Esme, who turns later to be a villain in this book. Esme knows something about their perants. I wonder what it is. The story in this book is nothing special; you could rather call it dull. But you can see the three orphans enjoy short time of peaceful moment at pent house with their kind guardian. I did not like Jerome, though; he is kind but too irresponsible.
This book has the same story line every single time!!! Orphans go to new home. They see count Olaf. Carers don't believe them. Count. Olaf almost finishes his plan and escapes. Go to new home. Repeat. On the plus side lemony snicket is a brilliant writer.
