There is nothing to be found in the pages of these books but misery and despair. You still have time to choose something else to read. But if you must know what unpleasantries befall the charming and clever Baudelaire children read on...The Hostile Hospital - There are many pleasant things to read about, but this book contains none of them. Within its pages are such burdensome details as a suspicious shopkeeper, unnecessary surgery, heartshaped balloons, and some very starling news about a fire. Clearly you do not want to read about such things.
The mystery is still there, nothing new is added nor discovered, the final decision of the orphans though was very brave, even if necessary.
This was definitely a spooky addition to the series as Violet finds herself in mortal danger and Klaus and Sunny will have to be fairly quickwitted to save her. I felt that Count Olaf's posse dug deep to be extra villainous and that ending definitely intrigues me.
