You'd think that by now the Bauderlaire orphans might finally get rid of evil Count Olaf. But as this is a 'series of unfortunate events' so you'd be totally wrong. Count Olaf returns with a even more convincing disguise this time, making it even harder for Violet, Klaus and Sunny to expose his true identity. And with their new guardian suddenly missing, the Bauderlaires find themselves in a tighter fix than ever.
This next installment in the series is nothing short of unfortunate, and as usual just as things look up for the Bauderlaires, everything comes crashing down.
Not as good as the previous book (The Reptile Room)in my opinion but still a good addition to the series and I'm still as anxious as ever to find out what happens next.
