The Baudelaires need a safe place to stay - somewhere far away from terrible villains and local police. A quiet refuge where misfortune never visits. Might Heimlich Hospital be just the place? In Lemony Snicket′s eighth ghastly instalment in A Series of Unfortunate Events, I′m sorry to say that the Baudelaire Orphans will spend time in a hospital where they risk encountering a misleading newspaper headline, unnecessary surgery, an intercom system, anesthesia, heart-shaped balloons, and some very startling news about a fire.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Blech! Lemony Snicket has messed up AGAIN! All the books follow the same plot. I actually think Lemony Snicket has a template made on her computer and she types in a couple words and ANOTHER boring book. These books are completely filler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the hostile Hospital A really, really good story but the bad thing was that the people in the hospital would notice Claus in his Doctor's uniform so that would not be a very accurate part of the story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Hostile Hospital This book is a masterpiece in itself. It's an excellent book just like the last seven. Lemony Snicket is a great author and all his books should be read by everyone. The story is believable and unbelievable at the same time. I can't wait until the canivorious canival and the next five after that!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW!!! This book was utterly amazing. Now all I need to know is what Lemony Snicket's real name is. I wish he would hurry up with the carnivorous carnaval.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snicket did it again Snickets done it again. This one of a kind author has wrote another superior book about the misfortunes of the lives of the Bauldaire orphans. They encounter the Libaray of Records, an intercom, a rusty knife and Count Olafs trunk. They along the way meet the V.F.D's and in hopes of figuring things outs they find out a startling truth... Could a Bauldaire parent be alive?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Hostile Hospital Like all the other Lemony Snicket books, the Baudelaires have a pleasing way to come up with interesting ways to escape from Count Olaf and his assistants. I would reccomend it to everyone!
