After any harrowing struggle, it is nice to consider checking into a hotel for a rest. In fact, this might be just the break Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire could use after their wearying deep-sea adventure.

A hotel can be a good choice for any family vacation. With so many floors, such a variety of rooms, and a curious array of guests, spending time in the safety of the right hotel can be the perfect learning environment for children of any age. A keen researcher like Klaus, an adept inventor like Violet, and a sharp-toothed culinary master like Sunny are all sure to find engaging diversions during their stay.

Regardless of how they pass their time while at a hotel, the three siblings will be sure to take in all the interesting sights and sounds—and write them down—just in case this episode turns out to be the darkest yet in a series of unfortunate events.

    " It's good and starts to pull together some of the information that has been floating around in the past books, but not as good as previous pieces in the series. "

    " These books are written for younger kids but, hey, I'm 17 and I love them. The way he writes his hilarious. This is not the best book in the series. The first few are the best. I do think this one is better than the last one though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole Solley | 12/10/2013

    " Not one of my favorites. There were some interesting twists and turns throughout the story, but Snicket was begining to run out of ideas here. "

    " Thsi novel leaves us dying to read the sequel ( also the final book in the series ) ands leaves us with a good impression of the series as you close it. I recommend this to all who love cliffhangers, and suspence packed in a thrilling novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 11/18/2008

    " As the title says, the 2nd to last book. This book does a good job of bringing in characters and events from the past 11 books, and the poor Baudelaire orphans are forced to do some things they dislike in their attempt to foil Count Olaf and survive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karolinde (Kari) | 11/9/2008

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janice | 7/20/2006

    " i really liked this one at first, mostly because it seemed to be slowly building to something that i assumed would build throughout the last book, too, but halfway through it just went back to the same sort of thing. there are still some good things, but now i just want to finish the damn things. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wils Cain | 10/17/2005

    " The orphans reach the last safe place and must disguise themselves as hotel staff working the concierge desk. The second to last book continues to answer even more questions while still posing more. I don't ever want the series to end. "
