Describe it in 25 words or less.

Morgan:Action/Drama/Children’s Literature

Gable: Children’s Drama/Action

Who was your favorite character and why?

Morgan: Klaus because he was quite smart.

Gable: Klaus because he was smart.

Who was your least favorite character and why?

Morgan: Esmé because she annoyed me.

Gable: Count Olaf. I believe he is the Devil in disguise and therefore I wish to slap him in the face until my hands sting.

Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while? Was it worth the wait?

Morgan: Took a little while, but was definitely worth it! This is by far the best book in the series, so far!

Gable: It was intense straight off the bat.

Was it plot or character driven?

Morgan: Both.

What did you think of the ending?

Morgan: Action-packed. Made me want to read the next book.

Gable: Super sad. If you are known to cry at really sad stuff, you should get a tissue before you begin the last chapter.

What was the moral of the story?

Morgan: To think differently, even when you’re in an emergency.

Gable: Stick together when times are tough or else you won’t be there when your friends are in desperate need.

Did you learn anything?

Morgan: Yes, what those ‘hospital beds on wheels’ are really called.

Gable: I learned how and why rust happens, thanks to poor Klaus Baudelaire. And I also learned what a fin de siécle is.

Favorite quote:

Morgan: “After all, a cheerful attitude is the most effective tool against sickness.” – ‘The Bearded Man’

Gable: “Sometimes the information you need is not in the most obvious place.” – Hal

Have you read other books in the series?

Morgan: Yes, check out my reviews for The Miserable Mill, The Austere Academy, The Ersatz Elevator and The Vile Village

Gable: Yes, you can check out my other reviews here. Intensity-wise, this one was the best!

Song/Soundtrack Recommendations: The Butcher Boy

Who would you recommend it to?

Morgan: People who have read the previous books or those who love high-action stories with quick-thinking characters.

Gable: People who don’t cry very often and love intensity, people who are convinced the Baudelaire parents survived the fire mentioned in the first book, and people who have been on a gurney at least once.

Number of unknown words:

Morgan: 27

Gable: 20

Recipe: Cranberry Muffins

Craft/Activity: Decode some anagrams.
