The Ersatz Elevator

The Sixth book in Lemony Snicket’s Series of Unfortunate Events

Description: In their most daring misadventure, the Baudelaire orphans are adopted by very, very rich people, whose penthouse apartment is located mysteriously close to the place where all their misfortune began. Even though their new home in the city is fancy, and the children are clever and charming, I’m sorry to say that still, the unlucky orphans will encounter more disaster and woe. In fact, in this sixth book in A Series of Unfortunate Events, the children will experience a darkened staircase, a red herring, an auction, parsley soda, some friends in a dire situation, a secret passageway, and pinstripe suits.

It’s time I address the openings to these books. I absolutely love them! I love how the author warns you to stop reading something about it just seems so fun and quirky! These books are so unique! You usually want a happy ending when you’re reading books, but honestly with these you know that there’s no happy endings. It makes it super different than usual books! (I still have hope that the last book in the series will end happily, fingers crossed)… book six! Okay, I actually really liked this one. It seems like the Baudelaires have found something to fight for in this one! They’re determined to get the Quagmire Triplets back! Even going so far as putting themselves in extreme danger to try to save them. I love that sunny was able to save the day in this one! I feel like she’s sometimes overlooked, and under appreciated. But in this one she totally kicked ass! Go sunny! I also loved that Esme was in on it the whole time! That added a bit of a plot twist! These are so fun to read!

I rate this book
