The Hostile Hospital (book 8 of 13) is the first volume (I believe) to introduce the idea that the children themselves have to do things to survive that, while understandable, are not 'noble' when viewed in isolation. This begins in earnest the theme of noble vs villainous people that dominates to the end of the series. It demonstrates an increasing sophistication in the novels, perhaps born of the idea that the audience were growing older over the years that the books were published.In previous [...]

I liked it but I feel like the main reason I'm reading this is to catch up with my reading challenge. I also want to find out about V.F.D and all the other mysteries.

Alright, I am hereby aborting my mission to finish this series. Here is my reasoning:1. Every book has the same exact formulaic plot.2. Every book has versions of same exact characters doing the same exact things.3. The person who recommended I read these is no longer in my life*.4. After reading 7.5 out of 13 books, I still know next to nothing about the overarching mystery.5. Too much teasing. Snicket has to realise that if you keep dangling the answer in front of the reader's face and snatchi [...]

4.3/5“Tra la la, Fiddle dee dee,Hope you get well soon.Ho ho ho, hee hee hee,Have a heart-shaped balloon.”This was my last book read in 2017. Great book to end the year, to be honest. The last couple of the series weren’t too exciting nor with an interesting story, but in this one there’s once again the main spirit of this series.After the escaping from the Village the kids end up in a Hospital, but it’s no common hospital there.Count Olaf’s disguise in here was pretty cool. We don [...]

“We are Volunteers Fighting DiseaseAnd we’re cheerful all day long.If someone said we were sad, That person would be wrong.We visit people who are ill,And try to make them smile,Even if their noses bleedOr if they cough up bileChorusTra la la, Fiddle Dee dee, Hope you get well soonHo ho ho, hee hee heeHave a heart shaped balloonWe visit people who are ill, And try and make them laugh,Even when the doctor says he Must saw them in half.We sing and sing all night and day,And then we sing some [...]

3.75* Once again, this was a fun addition to the series, although I did feel it felt a little like a 'filler' book! Not the most memorable of the series so far but it still had me turning the pages, feeling intrigued as to what is going on! I would just like a little more development as there's a lot of teasing going on, which has been intrigued but I'd be glad for some kind of revelation at some point soon :')

4 STARS!This was full of action! I felt like there wasn't a moment to breathe and I loved that about it. It was fast paced and fun and mysterious and that ending? These kids are brave as hell.Why did Esme wink at them?Who survived the fire?What does Olaf really have to do with any of this?I'm excited for The Carnivorous Carnival! Now on to book 9!! :D- Richard or Drahcir or Ardichar

• Another with great development of plot and character. • His ideas are so inventive and his stories so clever and entertaining.• Violet especially was one of my childhood heroines.• He deals with quite complex themes in children's books which are truly like no others. These books and Harry Potter were my childhood and I just love them so much.

The Baudelaire's start taking matters into their own handsI enjoyed the climax scene in this book because it is the biggest close-call yet! Klaus is amazing, and is amazing in the climax scene.Favorite quote from this book:"There are many things in this world I do not know. I do not know how butterflies get out of their cocoons without damaging their wings. I do not know why anyone would boil vegetables when roasting them is tastier. I do not know how to make olive oil, and I do not know why dog [...]

Every time I pick up one of these books, they never fail to make me laugh. They're just so hilariously unbelievable and I love every minute of it! I think this is one of the ones where it strikes me the most though. It's really crazy the things that these poor orphans go through and really unbelievable that they've actually made it this far! I really love this book in particular because it shows that even good people do not so good things sometimes to escape bad situations and that's just part o [...]

Okay I changed my mind, THAT one was my favorite so far. I really REALLY like that Sunny is beginning to use more words. The mystery of VFD and Beatrice is still killing me. On to the 9th!! :)

Para Beatrice: el verano sin ti es frío como el invierno, el invierno sin ti es aún más frío.Este me ha gustado muchísimo, de verdad. La saga sólo va a mejor. Y como no se descubra pronto lo que significa VFD me va a dar una crisis nerviosa. Digo.

I re-read the first six books last year. I thought I was up to to this one so I'll have to go back and read book 7 again next, but I loved this. It was always one of my favourites in the series!

aaaaand this is where everything really starts to go downhill. I don't think I recognized just how creepy/horrifying this was when I was younger, but now, it has an added dose of anxiety and horror to make the experience even better. But the best part of this by far is the moral strength, the love and loyalty, the cleverness and heart that's in it. (Don't even talk to me about the conspiracies it's bringing up and the plot secrets I need to unravel.)Basically this is my favorite series of all ti [...]

Yeesh! That was disturbing.And cue the PTSD! If these poor children weren't irrevocably traumatized for life already they certainly are now!

"There are many pleasant things to read about, but this book contains none of them. Within its pages are such burdensome details as misleading newspaper headlines, unnecessary surgery, an intercom system, anesthesia, heart-shaped balloons, and some very startling news about such things."A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS number eight takes place mostly in a half-finished hospital in which the now-guardianless Baudelaire orphans find themselves after fleeing police. The last book had them running awa [...]

Leaving this series for right now with this book. What I have realized is that this series can actually be a bit depressing. Unlike almost every other children literature out there,this book promises a sad ending and being true to his words,Lemony Snicker actually brings unhappy endings in every single book.It's true that the world is a sad place and there's just too much cruelty everywhere. But Snicket's world has extraordinary amount of cruelty and misjudgment, enhanced by million times under [...]

I am struggling to continue with this series. Literally, what's making me continue is because I want to know what happens before the TV series comes out but it's really getting irritating to read similar events happen in every single book. This is the 8th installment of the series and there's still a lot of unanswered mysteries. But, one thing that sets this one apart from the others is when Claus and Sunny save Violet from Olaf and his associates. For a repetitive book, that was a scene that's [...]

Book #1 of a 24h marathon on the 26th of April 2015Very Lemony Snicket-y as usual.There's not much to say about these series for nowI am expecting something huge to come out of the last few books, and my hunger for the truth about Beatrice and the Snicket family and the fire is increasing every volume I read.I look forward to picking up the rest of the series.

Reread.

GENTE, essa série tem ficado mais sinistra do que eu esperava, mas adorando <3 E o audiobook é DEMAIS! O narrador é maravilhoso, vários efeitos de áudio que dão um tcham pra história :)))

~~3.5 stars~~

Mini Review: Pretty solid addition to the series. I liked that the formula was a little different than usual, with the kids on the run with people chasing them in the hospital rather than being sent to a new guardian. Not my favorite, but pretty good.

Sadly to say, this is one book in the series that I did not like. Well not all, but most of it. However, there are new clues and new highlights in the series that might explain what V.F.D is and there are documents in "The Library of Records" which has evidence about the fire with Baudelaire's parents and someone else. Their house were caught fire but there were 3 person in the house and one has escape death. Who is it?Violet was captured and left Klaus and Sunny to save the day. I would just li [...]

3.5 stars! “Maybe we're becoming villains after all." I used to deem this book one of the worst books in the series. I've now decided that it's actually quite good. It was interesting to see how the two youngest Baudelaires fended for themselves without Violet to help them! This book also marks the start of Olaf slowly but surely losing his theatre troupe members until he (eventually) ends up completely and utterly alone. It’s what he deserves. The Baudelaire children are so unbelievably bra [...]

"But sometimes it takes only a photograph and a sentence to make an author cry himself to sleep even years after the photograph was taken."And so begins the first book in The Series of Unfortunate Events that the Baudelaire children are not placed with a guardian, but are on their own. They find themselves at Heimlich Hospital where they discover a very important piece of information. Game changing information. Overall, The Hostile Hospital is a fantastic installment in this series. It will keep [...]

So umm I did not like this one as much as I thought I did #6 is still my favourite one so far. I am glad to be rereading this Because of my work schedule I should be able to finish the entire series by Jan 1st. I actually will likely read 3 of them this week. Can't wait to FINALLY read the last book.

Note to self: stop reading other people's reviews of this series. I'm thankful that I can approach these with the same childlike wonder and enthusiasm that I did when I first read them almost 15 years ago, and that these books meet me halfway and bring the magic every time.

Loved it! It feels like a whole new series now that there is more continuity, actual plot points, mysteries and (even if it is a tiny bit) characterization from others besides the kids. Completely rekindled my attraction for this series

This one was really good because I think that there was a lot of drama and tension, so I couldn't put down the book at points!
