Title: The Ersatz Elevator
Author: Lemony Snicket
Series: A Series of Unfortunate Events, 6
Rating: 4 stars
Synopsis: Dear Reader,
If you have just picked up this book, then it is not too late to put it back down. Like the previous books in A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS, there is nothing to be found in these pages but misery, despair, and discomfort, and you still have time to choose something else to read.
Within the chapters of this story, Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire encounter a darkened staircase, a red herring, some friends in a dire situation, three mysterious initials, a liar with an evil scheme, a secret passageway, and parsley soda.
I have sworn to write down these tales of the Baudelaire orphans so the general public will know each terrible thing that has happened to them, but if you decide to read something else instead, you will save yourself from a heapful of horror and woe.
With all due respect,
Favourite character: Klaus and the Quagmires
Least favourite character: Olaf, Esmé and Jerome
Mini-review: Another great yet depressing in book in the lives of the Baudelaires. This introduces Esmé Squalor who joins Count Olaf’s acting troupe and is another hysterical character, even if she drives me to the brink of madness with all of her what’s in and what’s out. Also loved how Sunny was the one to save them.
