The Baudelaire children are driven off a cliff in a taxi by a volunteer. They go into this hotel on a secret mission. They find out that once again Count Olaf is trying to steal their fortune. The Baudelaire children take jobs as concierges, and are sent to different parts of the hotel. Violet gets sent to the roof. Klaus gets sent to 6th floor. Sunny gets sent to 3rd floor. When they get to their floors, they find out that the people they see on their floor are people are people they didn't want to see again. I highly recommend this book because there is a lot of tension in there. The Baudelaire children are trying to keep their fortune away from Olaf. This book is the best book I have ever read.

    This was just so boring unlike the other books

    I love the series of unfortunate events but this one took me about a week to finish insted of a day. what im trying to say is it didnt hold my attention like all the other books did and im hopeing The End is very exciting just like the Bad Beginning

    OK, not great

    I've enjoyed this series, but I'd like some answers, and by the 12th book, you'd think you would have some. Also, this is something that's bothered me since the beginning, but is it necessary to explain each 'difficult' word after using it? It disrupts the fluidity of the book. Nice series, but I hope the next (and I believe last?) book will finally reveal everything.

    Okay...

    Don't get me wrong. I love love love love Series of Unfortunate Events and was thrilled to get this book. However, I was looking for some answers to all the questions or some form of progression. I was very dissapionted. In the 300 and 1/2 pages nothing seemed to happen, in my opinion. I would reccomend you read this so you can properly follow the Baudelaire's tale, but other than that, ignore it. However, Lemony Snicket's books are a great read and I know he will redeem himself.
