I’m listening to this as read by Tim Curry, which is all things awesome. However: if you’re doing the same, you might want to grab a physical copy long enough to look at the last several pages. Snicket includes six “To My Kind Editor” letters, and Curry doesn’t read them. Which is not his fault, because nothing is his fault, because Tim Curry is a rock god and if you don’t understand that you need to leave my house right now.The reason Curry doesn’t read these letters is because he [...]
I continue my relentless 3*ing of the series, though this volume was significantly better than the previous one (The Slippery Slope).Much of the action takes place on submarines. These submarines appear to contain cavernous, often rectangular rooms, although the first of them is encountered in a mountain stream Later a submarine's window (yup, window) is repaired with chewing gum.My science is further hurt by the claim that sonar of the type that puts a tracking dot on the screen works by listen [...]

The Grim Grotto (A Series of Unfortunate Events, #11), Lemony SnicketThe Grim Grotto is the eleventh novel in the children's novel series A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket.The Baudelaires manage to drift along the river after being separated from Quigley Quagmire.

They are also [...]
UPDATE: 19/Jan/2017I am getting sick of updating my reviews for all these books but for the last time I liked this book more that I did when I first read it. 1/Jan/2017As my first book of 2017, I can't say I'm disappointed as I wasn't expecting much. I am so ready for this series to end because it has been going on for too long. I wasn't that interested in this book because I've lost a lot of my interest in this series. Also last year I only read these books to catch up on my reading challenge. [...]
I gasped so loud on the last page that I woke up the hubby! Oh man, what a turn of events. I'm so proud of the Baudelaire orphans! Standing up to Mr. Poe like that, figuring out all the complicated riddles so proud!! :)
These books are definitely starting to get more and more interesting :) I loved that we got some new characters in this one! Some of them got on my nerves a little bit--like Captain Widdershins--the way he talked just aggravated me after a little while :/ (Others who have read this probably know what I'm talking about XD lol) But other than that, I liked this one a lot! :) The way this book ended made me really want to pick up book #12 soon! Hoping my library will have it in stock :D Kind of sad [...]
Uno de los mejores de la saga, o al menos uno de los que más me ha enganchado. Es increíble como después de once libros este señor sigue sorprendiéndome y dejándome con ganas de más. (y ya solo faltan dos libros para terminar)
Listened to this one on audio read by the amazing Tim Curry in a few hours and it made it a whole lot better. I feel like this was a bit of a filler book but I still enjoyed it. I don’t like Fiona (the tiny bit of romance in here was completely unnecessary and icky to me lol I'm not one for romance in MG.). That twist with the hook-handed man was pretty cool and Count Olaf was just as fucked up as he always is. I think I might check out more audio books in the future. I thought they weren’t [...]
3.75* ooh, that ending! I feel as though (or am at least hoping) we're going to be getting some answers soon
This is definitely where the story starts to get really interesting. We're introduced to so many new characters and so many new mysteries and secrets are revealed! I think it's one of my favourite settings in the series as well, something about the submarines just really tickled my fancy! This is also one of the books in the series that I've read the fewest times so the details were extremely fuzzy and it was almost like reading it for the first time again. I really love this series to pieces an [...]
"People aren't either wicked or noble," the hook-handed man said. "They're like chef's salads, with good things and bad things chopped and mixed together in a vinaigrette of confusion and conflict."
Bestginning"A man of my acquaintance once wrote a poem called 'The Road Less Traveled' describing a journey he took along a path most travelers never usedd he was probably a bit nervous as he went along, because if anything happened on the road less traveled, the other travelersuldn't hear him as he cried for help. Sure enough, that poet is now dead."
Com certeza a série melhorou muuuuito nos último livros. Esse foi com bastante ação e informações importantes e NÃO ACREDITO QUE AQUELE PERSONAGEM APARECEU <3 <3 <3Ansiosa para terminar logo :D
Me pone contenta que me sigan sorprendiendo.Este libro siento que es la clave de la saga, recién acá empieza todo lo que queríamos saber desde el libro 1. Me gustaron muuuchas cosas, Lemony Snicket es brillante pero en este se pasó, sobretodo con el tema del ciclo.Pasaron muchas muchas cosas que me dejaron como Queeeeeee.Y el final estuvo increíble 👏🏻 4.5
I feel like this book was mostly filler. Far too many "Aye!"s and way too much annoying villainous laughter. Great ending though.Only two books to go. Don't you hurt my Baudelaires, Mr Snicket!
This book had everything I missed in a few of the previous books and reminded to the fact how awesome this series can be. The plot was exciting, it has interesting new characters and I really loved this whole underwater scenario. The backstory of Fiona and her stepfather was very well fitting to the rest of unfortunate events through the whole series and I really enjoyed their description of their life in a submarine. I was also happy to meet Phil again, the optimist from "The Miserable Mill", ( [...]
"How can someone so wonderful do something so terrible?" That ending!!!! What?! I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book. Only two left and I think we're finally going to get some answers. The Grim Grotto is action packed. The Baudelaire's find themselves on a submarine then in a grotto with poisonous mushrooms only to be left wondering what to do next and who to trust.

What can I say about these books?? For me they're so much more than children's books. Sure a child will probably enjoy them but I think you have to be older to fully appreciate the cleverness of these books and the genius that Lemony Snicket is. I think he's one of my favorite authors because he's clever, he's intriguing and mainly because he's sarcastic. One of my favorite parts of his books are the little poems he writes for Beatrice and of course his failed attempt to make us not read his boo [...]
Such a good addition to the series! This cover is my favrouite
I am loving this series. I really want to find out more about Beatrice and the backstory of everything.
The Grotto was mostly Grim.
In the eleventh book in “A Series of Unfortunate Events”, we find the three young Baudelaire siblings in a grim bit of trouble, escaping from the nefarious Count Olaf by riding a toboggan down the Stricken Stream, hoping to find a sugar bowl before he does.The Baudelaire siblings don’t know what is so important about the sugar bowl, only that it may mean the end of their troubles.Unsure how to get out of the Stricken Stream without drowning, the three siblings contemplate their fate. Viole [...]
4.5/5 “Rest here,” Sunny said, curling up at the foot of the stove.“Will you really be comfortable on the kitchen floor?” Klaus asked.Sunny opened one exhausted eye and smiled at her siblings. “Near you,” she said.
Mini Review: Not my favorite, because I do think this one dragged a bit at times, but I think it was better than a lot of the earlier ones. So close to finishing the series, excited to see how the last two play out!
The Grim Grotto is the eleventh book in A Series of Unfortunate Events by American author, Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler). As we once again join the unlucky Baudelaire orphans, they find themselves sailing down the Stricken Stream on a toboggan towards the ocean. Is it coincidence that they are rescued by a submarine whose crew (Captain Widdershins and Fiona) are on a mission to find a certain important sugar bowl, one the Baudelaire orphans also seek?Having narrowly escaped a burning hospi [...]
3.5 stars! // I enjoy this series so much that I wish I'd read it as a child. That would have been so much fun. I still really enjoy them now as an adult - and one of the things I love the most about it is the authors writing and humor. So incredibly good. I am getting really close to the end of the series now, and even though I don't want it to end, I really feel like it's time to get some more answers - and I'm really looking forward to that!
We're so close to the end of the series, so it makes sense that all the pieces are falling together. The Grim Grotto leaves the reader on the edge of their seats wondering if the Baudelaires will find the sugar bowl or if Sunny will survive being poisoned by a deadly mushroom. Just two more books, which I do not remember, so it'll all be new and exciting to me.
Puedo afirmar con un 95% de seguridad que voy a llorar cuando me termine esta saga.
