Publisher's Summary

Lemony Snicket returns with the last book before the last book of his New York Times best-selling A Series of Unfortunate Events.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.

If you have read the first eleven books then you should know what to expect. Except this one is worse much much worse. Think of how you would feel if you dropped a gun and it went off killing your best friend. If that upsets you then don't read this book.

penultimate peril is a pleasure

Tim Curry is BEST narrator know to man. I never get tired of hearing him speak. Tim Curry + Lemony Snicket = a match made in heaven.
