Who was your favorite character and why? My favourite character would probably be Violet, because she was so smart.
Who was your least favorite character and why? Shirley. And if you’ve read the book, you’ll automatically know why!
Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while? It took a while. Was it worth the wait? Yes.
Was it plot or character driven? I would say both.
What did you think of the ending? It was pretty predictable.
What was the moral of the story? Probably to be grateful for what you have, although in the Baudelaire’s case, it was difficult, and also to probably go with your gut feeling.
Did you learn anything? Yes, I learned that “Stylistic Consistency” is a book that is the same as it was in the beginning throughout the book.
Favorite quote: “It is true, of course, that you never know. A new experience can be extremely pleasurable, or extremely irritating, or somewhere in between, and you never know until you try it out.” – Lemony Snicket
