The Vile Village (A Series of Unfortunate Events #7) by Lemony Snicket, Brett Helquist (Illustrator)

Review: Okay these books are killing me, every few days I am reading another one. And I figure out just a tiny bit more of the whole secret picture that’s happening. But just when i start to think that I’ll be getting any answers, it’s all NOPE.

I am slowly going insane from all of this, yet I can’t stop now. I have to find out more of these Baudelaire kids. And hopefully see them get a happy ending of some sort or figure out what the heck’s going on.

I am also considering making a notebook with all the different clues to the many, many things I need answer’s to. Nope, it’s getting started now. I am already getting way more into this series then I thought I would. My gosh just when I think I’m going to get another piece of the puzzle or the children might find some happiness- it’s all NOPE, NOTHING FOR YOU.

Dear Reader,

You have undoubtedly picked up this book by mistake, so please put it down. Nobody in their right mind would read this particular book about the lives of Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire on purpose, because each dismal moment of their stay in the village of V.F.D. has been faithfully and dreadfully recorded in these pages. I can think of no single reason why anyone would want to open a book containing such unpleasant matters as migrating crows, an angry mob, a newspaper headline, the arrest of innocent people, the Deluxe Cell, and some very strange hats. It is my solemn and sacred occupation to research each detail of the Baudelaire children’s lives and write them all down, but you may prefer to do some other solemn and sacred thing, such as reading another book instead.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket
