I feel like reaching the tenth book in this series is a big achievement for me. I’ve finally managed to stay committed to reading something, even if it’s a children’s series!

The Klaus and Violet Baudelaire are running out of time. They’re rolling down a slope, soon to crash, while Olaf and his troupe take Sunny somewhere unknown. Using Klaus’s bookishness and Violets inventiveness, they save themselves from disaster yet again, but now must save their sister and find out more about the mysterious VFD.

This one was really suspenseful. There was always something fast-paced happening, meaning that yet again within a couple of hours it had been read!

Finally, some of the mysteries surrounding the Baudelaires are being unravelled in this one, which I’m grateful has finally happened. Since there’s thirteen books in the whole series, I expected it to be soon but was still glad that some of my questions were answered.

This one isn’t as comedic as a lot of the ones that came before it. I feel like as the mysteries unfold, the novels are going to get less comedic and more serious. It’s a nice change from the usual plot and structure, and it still left enough little bits of comedy in it to keep it entertaining.

I love some of the characters who are revealed in this one (not saying who because spoilers), and found them much needed.

Olaf is becoming more and more sinister and less comedic which makes the plot brilliant. To be able to see the shift in his behaviour and see his desperation build up as I make it to the finale is making me run for the next book.

  1. I haven’t read this seres, though I know a lot of people love it. It just doesn’t appeal to me. Partly I think that is due to the Lemony Snicket movie that came out years ago and I didn’t like it. One day I might pick up one of the books just to see what it is all about.


    1. The remake of A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix is much better than the original movie – definitely worth checking out. The books are brilliant but they take a very particular sense of humour to get along with.
