A Series of Unfortunate Events 05 - The Austere Academy by Lemony Snicket

Now, the more I read this series, the more I like how smart these kids are. Though they are EXTREMELY unfortunate (obviously) but I think many readers are missing out the point that they are really smart. They can adapt to many of their misfortunes in order to get their way. I don't know what the end will be but I think there's something about this series that the author has to give.

This book has a turn of event, it kind of left me with a cliffhanger. Now, that is goooood writing... They've made some really good friends and they were left with a clue. And it literally makes me go "What the heck... What is this (v.d.f) thing"? I was left dumbfounded... and I looked like this towards the end.

(Yep, that's Mark from Mark's Read!)

Can't wait to read what the next book has to offer!

  1. I loved the film but haven't read the books, must remedy this terrible, most shocking event sometime!!!

    1. I am so terrible at this. I didn't even know you have a blog! I've watched the film and it was a combination of the first 3 books into 1 movie. I'd say read the book. It tends to get a little repetitive but the structure of the plot is growing progressively. It's a short read for each book, you might wanna give it a try.
