The Hostile Hospital (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Bk 8)
The Hostile Hospital - A Series of Unfortunate Events, Bk 8 Author:Lemony Snicket, Brett Helquist (Illustrator) Dear Reader, — Before you throw this awful book to the ground and run as far away from it as possible, you should probably know why. This book is the only book that describes every last detail of the Baudelaire children's miserable stay at Heimlich Hospital, which makes it one of the most dreadful books in the world. — There a... more »re many pleasant things to read about, but this book contains none of them. Within its pages, are such burdensome detyails such as a susicious shotkeeper, unnesessary surgerp, an intercom system, anesthesia, heart-shaped balloons, and some very startling news about a fire. Clearly you do not want to read about such things.
I have sworn to research this story, and to write it down as best as I can, so I should know that this book is something best left on the ground, where you undoubtedly found it lying?
This was a disappointing installment, in my opinion. I guess because the children were more "on their own" than in previous books, it just seemed more far fetched than the others and left me with a bad taste in my mouth.
