    One thought on “The Dilemma Deepens: A Box of Unfortunate Events, Books 7-9”

    1. I feel like these books are getting more depressing the more I read. I don't know if worse things are actually happening or if it's just gone on so long that it's wearing on the characters and making them sadder. Either way, it's effective. These are some very unfortunate events.

    2. Hostile Hospital: I'm not kdding, it keeps getting better! More questions about the links between Olaf, the children, and Snicket have me on the edge of my seat! I was impressed with this installment which did not contain the intro to a new guardian, but the children on their own.Carnivorous Carnival: I am so pleaded that the books are not getting formulaic. My curiosity is bursting though, and I am so eager to see how it all comes together. Most ineresting aspect of this book: the children stru [...]

    3. I continue with my binge-reading. Actually, I determined that I can read most of these faster than I could watch a television adaptation of the same book (it takes me about 1.25-1.5 hours to complete one of these). The Vile Villagebrings some new lows for the Baudelaire's, but the mystery really starts to pick up.The Hostile Hospitalflies by with some pretty convincing moments of peril.The Carnivorous Carnivalreturns to ridiculousness while increasing the stakes.

    4. These books are okay if you were a fan of the first one, but if you've read one, you've pretty much got the gist for the series: many bad things will happen, the children will soldier on, and Olaf is a slimy bad guy. I'm mixed about the exposure to new vocabulary. On one hand, it's great that people learn new turns to language and new words; on the other hand, the definitions in these books are often incomplete and humorously narrow, and students get absolutely no practice in figuring out words [...]

    5. Als dit enkel "Het doodenge dorp" en "Het horror hospitaal" was geweest, dan kreeg het boek 4 sterren van mij."De koude kermis" is echter zo'n saai boek (ik las de andere 8 elk op 1 dag uit, dit boek kostte mij een week om er door te komen), dat ik een volle ster ga aftrekken van het eindtotaal.Ik ga nog "Het grimmige gebergte" proberen om te zien of die wat beter is, maar waarschijnlijk zijn mijn avonturen met de Baudelaires hiermee ten einde

    6. Although everything gets a little more far-fetched in every book - and the constant repeated phrases are getting old - I like the myth-building in these books that make the stories feel more connected.

    7. OK, I know that this is the Series of UNFORTUNATE events, but as the series progresses, they seem to end even less happy than the last. I still enjoyed Snicket's humor. I also love the many creative ways he incorporates a library into the children's adventures. CC was too sad for me.

    8. ok so what's the deal? why is there jsut random individual books and then just groups??? anywayok 7ok 8dividual reviewok 9love them carnival folk.

    9. I stoped somewhere around 7-9 I couldn't take it anymore! Just to sad for me never anything good happening!!!

    10. The poor Baudeliere children can't find a break. They are always falling into the hands of Count Olaf and his hanchpeople. These three books keep the reader on the edge of their seat the whole time.
