The Baudelaires are on the run and will do anything to get away from Count Olaf, Esmé Squalor, and the residents of VFD. They find themselves at The Last Chance Saloon, trying to send a telegram to Mr Poe so he can find them when they meet a group of volunteers. VFD (Volunteers Fighting Disease) are on their way to Heimlich Hospital and the Baudelaires join them.
They end up volunteering in the library of records in the library which has files on everything, including The Snicket Fire. But of course, as always, Esmé and Olaf aren’t far behind.
The Horrible Hospital is one of the most exciting books in the series. It’s so close to unveiling all of the secrets throughout the book and it’s so full of suspense. It’s actually one of the most unpredictable books in the series, and the twists were shocking.
It’s probably the most terrifying as well, especially with the position Olaf and his troupe have managed to get themselves into.
Olaf is at his most terrifying, and so is Esmé. They have reached a new height where I’m starting to question whether this is actually a children’s series at all.
