Il volume contiene svariate sgradevolezze, quali una pinza gigante, un uomo con una nuvola di fumo al posto della testa, un ipnotizzatore, un terribile incidente che provocherà diversi feriti, punizioni severe, muffe sgocciolanti, esami sterminati e saggi di violino. È inutile sperare che la serie vada migliorando, né, mi spiace dire, ci sono prospettive che essa migliori in un futuro anche lontano. Età di lettura: da 8 anni.

It’s time to resign myself to the fact that I will never love anything like I love this series. These books made me INTO WHO I AM. (Which explains why I am such a negative and unpleasant person.) Other series may contain things I love, but those series will never be why I love those things. A Series of Leggi tutto
I’m listening to this as read by Tim Curry, which is all things awesome. However: if you’re doing the same, you might want to grab a physical copy long enough to look at the last several pages. Snicket includes six “To My Kind Editor” letters, and Curry doesn’t read them. Which is not his fault, bec Leggi tutto
The Grim Grotto picks up right after the previous installment as the Baudelaires have now been separated from Quigley Quagmire. They discover a submarine called the "Queequeg" which is controlled by a man named Captain Widdershins... “Let’s see! I’ll put you to work right away! Aye! No—first I’ll giv Leggi tutto
I continue my relentless 3*ing of the series, though this volume was significantly better than the previous one (The Slippery Slope). Much of the action takes place on submarines. These submarines appear to contain cavernous, often rectangular rooms, although the first of them is encountered in a mou Leggi tutto

UPDATE: 19/Jan/2017 I am getting sick of updating my reviews for all these books but for the last time I liked this book more that I did when I first read it. 1/Jan/2017 As my first book of 2017, I can't say I'm disappointed as I wasn't expecting much. I am so ready for this series to end because it h Leggi tutto
"People aren't either wicked or noble," the hook-handed man said. "They're like chef's salads, with good things and bad things chopped and mixed together in a vinaigrette of confusion and conflict."
Listened to this one on audio read by the amazing Tim Curry in a few hours and it made it a whole lot better. I feel like this was a bit of a filler book but I still enjoyed it. I don’t like Fiona (the tiny bit of romance in here was completely unnecessary and icky to me lol I'm not one for romance Leggi tutto
I feel like this book was mostly filler. Far too many "Aye!"s and way too much annoying villainous laughter. Great ending though. Only two books to go. Don't you hurt my Baudelaires, Mr Snicket!
These books are definitely starting to get more and more interesting :) I loved that we got some new characters in this one! Some of them got on my nerves a little bit--like Captain Widdershins--the way he talked just aggravated me after a little while :/ (Others who have read this probably know wha Leggi tutto
