The ellipses simply meant that this book left me with jaws hanging and with utmost silence. Indeed, it was carnivorous, worse than its previous book, the 8th. SPOILER!!!!!!!I quite expect some kind of death to occur but not that kind of death. Every time I keep on reading this books about the Baudelaire misfortunes, I keep on thinking that every last book of them that I get to read is the worst! And speaking of the devil, this one is one hell kind. Lots and lots of thrilling spots, of chills and KILLS!

Good luck sa mubasa.

-I've got no big time on the next day and I want this finished; I don't want that the next day I'd suddenly stop my work just because I'd be wondering what would happen next and blablabla...Also, I don't have more time now for typing this one because I've got a class the next day and I've got to get some sleep (as long as I can) and blablabla..I am supposed to be reading a history book instead of this but of whatt use could it be for me to read a history book and then I would suddenly stumble to a word which would trigger me into thinking about this book and blablabla...Anyway, there is some kind of thrill in this book especially in the last part.

-Vile. So vile indeed. Goodness! There was a lot of action especially in the last parts. Though it did not really ended entirely with a happy one, the time i devoted for this is much worth it. I had actually been waiting this part to be unfolded, when the Baudelaires would soon be wearing diguises (as I've read from site once) but that time won't be on thi book, just it's "primer". One thing, I was so glad that I was able to get to know the mystery of the couplets before the story reveals it. Sadly, another life of an innocent had been taken away. So much for spoilers, better read it. For now I'm in no mood to type a lengthy description (or at least as long as its prequel descriptions).

*Vile means descipable.

-!@#$%^&*)=!!!!!! Aaarrrggghhh! I was so mad when in the later part of this book, that even though the trick is clear and that the whole thing was a red herring, the Baudelaires were not able to guess it right. They fell to that dirty old trick! Cr*p!

Well, maybe if I was in their part I'd probably also fall onto the same trick. [sigh!]. This is probably the second (PJatO5 as the first) book that made me speedy at reading. You'll be shocked by how fast you'd get at reading when there's a lot of action in the pages.

*Ersatz means an imitation or a substitution.

-Di Immortales! Though I was able to guess it right that the "friends" of the Baudelaires will soon have a misfortune (oh yeah, I spilled it. It's a review anyway.), it did shocked me that they were still alive. So mean of me to think that they'll die. I'm delighted they're still alive as of reading time.

This book really left me with the mystery of the acronym or code or abbrev that Duncan gave to Klaus. I'm thinking that VFD is probably an acronym of a periodical but I think that's wrong because if it were then the quagmire notebooks will be that of big help then. Maybe then it's an acronym of a secret society wherein their parents belonged to and which of some sort, is somehow involved with the "fire." Of course that turns out to be a very complex guess but if you were me, who was able to read..and damn the net which spoiled this part of the plot--about the secret society blablabla...*

*Austere may be like the words "grim", "plain" or "stark."

-Whew! the author is indeed right. This is probably the worst or the most miserable of the books, yet. Also, this one got me chills and the thrills. I don;t know if this would be my favorite book but all I can say is that this one's full of action especially in the last parts.

and hahaha,so funny. There's some kind of twist which(or not really because you'll be expecting it) but the twist is that you expect such thing to happen but not in such a way you expect it to happen.

P.S. Hemophobics with wild and vivid imaginations, beware! No blood mentioned but it is implied and that always creep me out.

-As I've said in my previous photo caption, I was so excited about the movie that I really wanted to read this. I think I'm getting the chills just like what Snicket had been telling in the first page of every book in this series: that this book is certainly not for one who desire the typical "and they lived happily ever after" ending. Bahalag murag pambata pero ingon bitaw ag author na di daw ni pambata kay basta..haha

Just finished today (7-11-10), the day while I am writing this, not the day you are reading this, probably the day that you're reading this but it cant be the day that you're reading this because nobody gets to read my captions in the photos of this album not unless if you are me and since you are not me blablabla..

Now I'm trying hard to sound like Lemony Snicket...just giving you an idea of the Master's style but of course nobody could have the same styles as another one have.

- finished reading last Saturday, July 10 2010. I was so excited to see the movie that I abandoned reading 'Inkspell' because I want to read the "original" before watching the film adaptation of this. Unfortunately, just like the title, only A movie was made for this series, a movie which was a corporation of the first three books. Then, it was never followed. So sad.
