Book Description

(From Waterstones)

There is nothing to be found in Lemony Snicket’s `A Series of Unfortunate Events’ but misery and despair. You still have time to choose another international best-selling series to read. But if you insist on discovering the unpleasant adventures of the Baudelaire orphans, then proceed with caution…

Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are intelligent children. They are charming, and resourceful, and have pleasant facial features. Unfortunately, they are exceptionally unlucky.

In The Penultimate Peril, the siblings face a harpoon gun, a rooftop sunbathing salon, two mysterious initials, three unidentified triplets, a notorious villain, and an unsavoury curry…


Overall Thoughts

This book is the peak moment for the whole series. Characters were finally brought in who would really set off the conclusion of the series.

I loved Dewey Denouement as a character. He was such a nice person, and I actually think he may beat Charles to being my overall favourite character of the whole series… and we all know how much I love Charles!

Kit Snicket was a nice surprise, and I found her appearance definitely mysterious. I can’t wait to see what becomes of her character in the final novel.

This one was definitely packed with action and it didn’t really even give me chance to breathe! That’s just the way up I like my books.

It’s scary to think there’s so many more questions I need answering and one more book left to answer them!
