This was one of the best books in the series.I couldn't put it down. Lemony Snicket lovers will really enjoy it! I did. It's got tons of suspense and has u on your toes wondering what's going 2 happen. Read it and you'll c what I mean!

The neat thing about this book is that is revisits with all of the guardians and other minor characters from the first 11 series of unfortunate event books. But I found this book a little bit of a disapointment. As an adult, I have problems with books that have odd text features (part of the book needs to be read in a mirror) and while this is only a minor feature of the book, I found it distracting. I was also a bit disapointed by the plot of this book. All the characters are the same as the last time we saw them. There is very little growth shown in these minor characters. I'm also a bit disapointed in the changes in the orphans since the 10th book. I'm not looking for a happy ending (I'm pretty sure that's not going to happen), but I am looking for the good qualities we saw in the orphans for the first 10 books to show up again.

Very good for a children's book. Surprisingly this one does bring up great points, how do we know that we aren't as bad as others? Excellent for children and people older as well.

Well, the second to last book has arrived and despite the fact that things are getting pretty repetitive, I quite enjoyed the Penultimate Peril. The orphans, along with Kit Snicket, arrive at the hotel to rescue the elusive sugarbowl. As usual, Olaf and his gang are also there, trying to stop the heros. At this point, the Baudelaire orphans are wondering if they really are heros; they do good deeds but also end up hurting people. *spoiler* In this story, they accidentally kill Dewey, one of the hotel managers and a member of VFD. Almost everyone is at the hotel, Olaf's bad accomplices and the good members of VFD, this guarantees that the book will be very confusing and exciting.

Not nearly as good as the movie. First off it is QUITE depressing, whereas the movie is not. First their parents die, and then..well read the book! I don't want to spoil it for you. It is an interesting read..I'll give it that..

The Baudelaire orphans are reunited with a host of characters from previous adventures as they gather at Hotel Denouement to await the delivery of the sugar bowl. The hotel is organized according to the Dewy Decimal System, a fact that pleases Klaus. The orphans deserve some time off and a hotel is the best place to stay. But theres always adventure and danger wherever the Baudelaire children are. I liked this book and the rest of the series. The series is drawing to a close, yet the mystery has been kept alive by Lemony Snicket
