This book was one of my favorite books in this series. The amount of suspense and mystery, specifically caught my attention! ( )

I don`t know why, this book is hard to find use, besides buying it online or at the book store. After reading book eight in the series of Unfortunate Events, I still don't know why it hard to find.
All in all the series is finally getting somewhere. Well it been getting somewhere since book five, but actually find out more clues as to what happen.
I know their presents are alive since I seem the movie along time ago. The way the movie ended ruins the series.
On to the next book. ( )

Book description
As I read more of this series, I became more and more sorry for the Baudelaire Triplets. Everywhere they go, they would have to get haunted down by Count Olaf, and his stupid assistants! Well, at least they had some success in this book, they had burned down the hopital, but they still didn't capture that nasty old Count Olaf! I think that Count Olaf has been becoming more and more cruel as the book gets further and further. So far, this was the best successfully ending they ever had, well at least in my opinion. But I hope the author could make them have a happily ever ending, beause they had already suffered through a lot of events. Can't wait to read the next book!
