Who was your favorite character and why?
Morgan: I can’t tell you or it’ll ruin the story.
Gable: I can’t say who it was or else I’ll be giving the story away.
Who was your least favorite character and why?
Morgan: Count Olaf because he was cruel, ridiculous and greedy, but I also dislike Esmé Squalor for the same reason.
Gable: Count Olaf because of how badly he treated these three innocent children and his own troupe members.
Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while?
Morgan: All the books in “The Series of Unfortunate Events” grab me immediately and have me the whole way through.
Gable: It was intense from the start. Every time you thought it would be calm again, it got intense once more.
Was it plot or character driven?
Morgan: A nice balance of both.
What did you think of the ending?
Morgan: A bit sad.
Gable: It made me so curious that I leaped to the next book in the series but it was also sad and deserved some time for me to soak it all in.
What was the moral of the story?
Morgan: Don’t fight fire with fire.
Gable: Friends come out of the unlikeliest of places and sometimes they are mysterious at first but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t always try to make friends with everybody.
Morgan: “Just because you don’t understand something doesn’t mean that it’s nonsense.” – Sunny
Gable: “It is so rare in this world to meet a trustworthy person who truly wants to help you, and finding such a person can make you feel warm and safe.” – Lemony Snicket
Who would you recommend it to?
Morgan: Those who have read the previous books in this series, those who feel lost in the world or those who feel like they never seem to find the answers to their questions.
Have you read other books in the series?
Morgan: Yes, and this has been my favorite one so far. Check out my other reviews of the series here.
Gable: Yes, but this is the best one so far. Check out my other reviews of the series here.
