I can think of no single reason why Dear Reader, You have undoubtedly picked up this book by mistake, so please put it down. I can think of no single reason why anyone would want to open a book containing such unpleasant matters as migrating crows, an angry mob, a newspaper headline, the arrest of innocent people, the Deluxe Cell, and some very strange hats.

Because there’s only so many times you can reread a book, c’mon Hector, don’t you want new releases?
Also Hector is a frustrating guardian, but I also feel really bad for him. He’s socially anxious poor guy.

And of course Count Olaf, I’m beginning to think he has a tracking device on them! And the mystery of the Quagmire Triplets grows!

The Vile Village
The Vile Village is where the whole VFD thing really starts to take off and the original formula of a new guardian followed by Olaaf turning up in a new disguise starts fraying. The village is quite fun, replete with dozens of vile villagers, hundreds of ridiculous rules, and thousands upon thousands of crows. The off-beat humour continues with Sunny’s one worders and their elaborate translation, and the extreme stupidity of everyone who isn’t a Baudelaire.
The penalty for breaking almost any villa The Vile Village is where the whole VFD thing really starts to take off and the original formula of a new guardian followed by Olaaf turning snickket in a new disguise starts fraying. The penalty for breaking almost any village law is to be burned at the stake – which seems pretty gruesome in a children’s story. And we come pretty close to seeing it carried out.
Violet’s inventing skills are put to the test when the children need to break out of a jail cell. The solution is to pour water from a jug The water is then mopped up with bread, the bread is squeezed over the jug, the process is repeated. The Quagmires are back again. The Baudelaires hunt for them in a book-spanning plot that makes no sense at all, involving clues sent by the Quagmires.
And they’re eventually found in a location In fact, very little of this book makes any sense. But, Celyn enjoyed me reading it to her, and it’s an OK book, little better or worse than its mid-series predecessors.

This book did push the series along a bit but I’m getting tired of the formula with these books. Orphans go to terrible place, all the adults are horrible human beings, the orphans are forced to do insane things for the adults, one adult is ghe nice but useless and in the end they escape but just barely.
I did think this one had a couple snucket moments that were a bit darker, which I always appreciate but overall I pushed to get through it. It’s a very fast read though. I read it in like hte hour or two.
I would still recommend it because the series is fun and if you have a child then this would probably be a hit. It was nice to dive back into this series after taking a little break from it! This book is definitely one of the stranger ones in the series in my eyes. Something about a village adopting children and the crows mixed together was th creepy! But that doesn’t mean I enjoyed this book any less, in fact I think it made me enjoy it more.
As the series goes on, the books really become more intricate and mature and I find that’s particularly prominent in this one! Jan 30, Kate GirlReading rated it really liked it. This was bizarre but another fun read! It genuinely had me anxious as times and worried for what was going to happen. I’m enjoying the way the plot is starting lemoony somewhat very slightly deviate away from the original formula and new characters, mysteries and objectives are being added. I’m still not entirely sure where this series is heading although I have my guesses so I’m still very intrigued!

vike Feb 25, Nicholas Karpuk rated it really liked it. If I had to draw a line in the sand with the Snicket books between overly formulaic but funny, and genuinely well put together, I’d put it within the first few chapters of The Vile Village. There’s a few things absent from this read through, most of them positive. He isn’t constantly reiterating the three children’s skills in a “this is for Violet, this is for Klaus, this is for Sunny” sort of rhythm.

There guardian is slightly more relatable, and altogether decent guy who gets severely skittish around authority.
And they actually get some answers to the larger mysteries vjllage with a growing integration of Lemony Snicket as a character rather than a pure narrator. Plus it just flat out reads better. The structure is looser, giving more room for whimsical turns of events.
