The 140 Character Review: Series of Unfortunate Events 8-13

We’re just a few short days from the launch of A Series of Unfortunate Events season 2 on Netflix. I’m excited, and so to prepare, I’m micro-reviewing all of the books in the miserably amazing series. Last month, I looked at books 1-7, reviewing the undoubtedly tragic lives of the Baudelaire orphans, and so this Monday evening I’ve rounded the last 6 books up into one tidy list.

The 140 Character Review is my short and concise way of expressing my feelings on watch I watch and read. Throwing it back to the original twitter limit of 140 characters, I try to summarise my opinions to tweet length. To read other 140 Character Review posts, click here.

The Hostile Hospital | Lemony Snicket

Pretty forgettable despite being quite intricate and involving books and hospitals. Little secrets of the past and VFD do start to emerge

The Carnivorous Carnival | Lemony Snicket

Twisted and probably the most evil in the series. Unpleasant in the extreme, and uncomfortable embracement of ‘freaks’. Gives me the creeps

The Slippery Slope | Lemony Snicket

I don’t like the Baudelaire’s split, but we see so much more of their characters, and VFD, and the Quagmires and the sugar bowl. Not too bad

The Grim Grotto | Lemony Snicket

I just don’t love it. It’s forgettable, and the characters and setting within the submarine and cave are unpleasant in a different kinda way

The Penultimate Peril | Lemony Snicket

Loving the Dewey Decimal theme and reoccurence of all the old characters, good and bad, in a bizarre bag of misfortune and mayhem

The End | Lemony Snicket

A little disappointing, pretty farcical, and miserable until the last. A strangely ambiguous ending to the Baudelaire’s tale
