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 Truth Be Told, Within The Chapters That Make Up This Dreadful Story, The Children Will Face Snapping Crabs, Strict Punishments, Dripping Fungus, Comprehensive Exams, Violin Recitals, SORE And The Metric System It Is My Solemn Duty To Stay Up All Night Researching And Writing The History Of These Three Hapless Youngsters, But You May Be Comfortable Getting A Good Night S Sleep In That Case, You Should Probably Choose Some Other Book With All Due Respect,Lemony Snicket 4.4 The best ASOUE book I ve read so far I love how the story is starting to have a bit of depth in it For instance, we were introduced to the Quagmire twins supposed to be triplets who were also orphans whose parents died in a fire along with their third sibling Vice Principal Nero was also very despicable, as well as the cheeky Carmelita Spats Basically, the misfortunes of the Baudelaires are getting worse in every book The vocabulary was excellent, it has characters that could potentially still be around in future books, and it gives the series new places to go A book in the series you should look forward to Now I m off to read the sixth book and probably the last one I ll read since I just decided to take a break from this series The Ersatz Elevator. I m so FOND of this series sniffles happily I was absolutely obsessed with them as a kid and particularly remember this one s audio because it was narrated by Tim Curry and all I can hear is him sqwaking CAKESNIFFING ORPHANS IN THE ORPHAN SHAKE CAKESNIFFING ORPHANS IN THE ORPHAN SHAKE Obviously my brain retains only the best and most useful things Anyway This was a thoroughly great reread and perhaps one of the worst tortures the Baudelaire had to go through is Nero s horrific violin playing Like seriously my sister was learning violin once and I could ve ended her with a spork I am just saying I also love the Quagmires and how they re so NICE and the Baudelaires are always so confused Although lowkey think this is the least effort Olaf put into a scheme.OK onwards with my reread before Season 2 of the Netflix show comes out I m soooooo excited eeeeeee. Friends can make you feel that the world is smaller and less sneaky than it really is, because you know people who have similar experiences This was better than The Miserable Mill, mostly because of the Quagmire siblings.This doesn t change the fact that it s one of the most tiring series ever It is comical how depressing these books are, but a little change here and there wouldn t hurt On one hand I really want to finish this series, on the other I really don t want to read about Olaf tricking everyone and the Baudelaires being unlucky again and again and again It s highly annoying, especially because Olaf is being so obvious and every adult is bloody ignorant Still, I really want to have read the books before I watch the Netflix episodes.Find of my books on Instagram The Baudelaires have been whisked away from Count Olaf once again, this time to a boarding school called Prufrock Preparatory School Principal Nero has assured them that Count Olaf will never find them because of his sophisticated computer system Of course, his guarantee becomes questionable once the children realize that he s just another adult that can t be trusted All he seems to care about is playing his violin, and horribly I might add The orphans have been housed in a fungus dripping, crab infested shack, baby Sunny has been given the job of administrative secretary for Principal Nero, and Violet and Klaus are expected to get good grades on ridiculous exams after spending their sleepless nights running in circles with the gym teacher, coach Genghis Luckily, they ve found themselves a few friends that sympathize with them and are willing to help them solve their problems The Baudelaires always have the same issue They must find a way to succeed against Count Olaf.We took a bit of a break after book 4 because the plot of these books seemed to be getting a tad redundant This installment was interesting though, and even with the recurring themes we found it engaging and comical at times It s still depressing, but we appreciated the friendship the Baudelaires found with the Quagmire triplets in this one it was nice that the children had some normalcy for once Principal Nero is extremely annoying, yet hilarious Coach Genghis, well, you ll have to read about all his craziness in the book The end leaves you with a huge cliffhanger which was unexpected, and after that we really want to move right along to book six now.Something I love about all of these books is Lemony Snicket s use of vocabulary In this installment children learn meanings to difficult words like luminous, sayonara, austere, adversity, triptych, and assumption Even if the full definition isn t given for every word, my children are intrigued and want to understand them.We enjoyed this installment and look forward to finishing the entire series The books just keep getting longer as the series moves forward, so I have a feeling things are going to get interesting.4 You can also read this review
