the_wide_window

Write 6 words you would put on this book if it were in the “Blind Date With A Book” shelf. Hurricane, Leeches, Sailboat, Captain, Grammar, Books

Genre: Children’s/Action

Who was your favorite character and why? Klaus because he was the smartest one in this book.

Who was your least favorite character and why? Count Olaf. I am sick of his sneaky ways to get to the Baudelaire fortune!

Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while? It was interesting and slightly mysterious at first and then it got intense!

What did you think of the ending? Like with all the books in the Series of Unfortunate Events, a good mix of happy and sad.

What was the moral of the story? As long as you have friends, everything will be alright.

Did you learn anything? I learned that graphologists are experts in handwriting analysis and that there was such a thing and that wunderkind is German for skillful.

Favorite quote: “It is very easy to say that the important thing is to try your best, but if you are in real trouble the most important thing is not trying your best but getting to safety.” – Lemony Snicket.

What would you change? I would make the readers certain about Aunt Josephine’s fate in the end and not leave it a question.

Have you read other books in the series? I much enjoyed the other ones in the series, starting with The Bad Beginning. This one was the best one, apart from The Reptile Room.

Songs:
Beethoven’s 4th Quartet
Mozart’s 14th Symphony

Who would you recommend it to? People who loved the previous books in the series, people who love grammar, people who live in fear and people who are interested by sailboats.

Number of unknown words: 4

Recipe:
Peppermints
Chilled Cucumber Soup

What is the toughest time you’ve been through as a child?
