Warning: Your day will become very dark—and possibly damp—if you read this book.

Plan to spend this spring in hiding. Lemony Snicket is back with the eleventh book in his New York Times bestselling A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Lemony Snicket's saga about the charming, intelligent and grossly unlucky Baudelaire orphans continues to provoke suspicion and despair in readers the world over. In the eleventh and most alarming volume yet in the bestselling phenomenon A Series of Unfortunate Events, the intrepid siblings delve further into the dark mystery surrounding the death of their parents and the baffling VFD organisation.

Lemony Snicket is often despondent, mostly about his published research, which includes A Series of Unfortunate Events andThe Composer Is Dead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Minor Description Faults, but Still Compelling The Grim Gotto , despite some minor description faults, is truly another compelling A Series of Unfortunate novel by Mr. Lemony Snickett. In fact, this author never ceases to amaze me. His unique prose style-ones that mixes personal narrative, carefully researched and well-placed trivia as well as canny cliffhangers makes for piqued readers. That being said, I'll now be on my way to read the 12th book in the A Series of Unfortunate Events saga.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favouirte series! I started reading these books in elementary school and continued reading into my teenage years. Daniel Handler aka Lemony Snicket can twist and play with words like no other and his style is a delight to read. Although the unfortunate events are numerous, this is more than a depressing read. The Baudelaires are truly resilient and it's inspiring and comforting all at once. #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Part Eleven of an Interesting Read All of my friends and I were reading these book when they came out back in our elementary school days. They were different than anything on the market, and we couldn't get enough of it. There was always something to discuss amongst friends during the reading of this series, and all of us in particular remember the entire page on which was written exclusively, and excessively, very, very, very... An excellent series to introduce to younger readers. #plumreviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ongoing! This was another excellent book by Mr. Snicket. It's sad to think it's all ending on Friday the 13th with the very last book! Very interesting, plus you get to learn a lot of new words in the process! Reccomended again to anyone, it has some mystery, because we're talking about an ongoing crime, but other than that it's like geting a look into the life of an orphan!!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great read.... with a twist ending. A fantastic series for kids. It is great in content and is also a great way to learn new words since the author incoporates the meaning of the word in the story. He helps the reader understand what the word means in particular settings. The great thing about this series is that it is also a fun read for parents and adults.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Book :) I loved this book. I really felt for the characters during all the impeccable twists and turns. You barely ever expected what was to occur; Everything was so skilfully written. Loved it. :) Like always, Lemony Snicket pulls it off! These books just never get boring.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome! This book was really good. I really liked the whole mushroom idea, very original. I like how Sunny actually does something in the book unlike how she's usually in the background with her one-hit-wonder each book. Thrilling, but too bad Violet missed her surprise VFD . I really want to read the beginning of the 12th book, I want to know where Kit is going to take Violet! I have a guess...Well overall the book was good but I had to reread it because to understand it well. I can't wait for the thirteenth book, it's going to be amazing! I recommend this book but if you are new to the series, I suggest you start with the first book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Books! Your books are pretty good and I found it a little interesting at what was going to happen next. It kept me a little on my knees until the next book came out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Grim Although in my opinion some of the books in the series so far have not been tremendously great, however the Grim Grotto really sinks the ship. There is no plot, no suspense,zilch. Overall all the books don't have a plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Everything is more or less predictable. I personally enjoyed the Ersazt Elevator, the Austere Academy, the Carnivorous Carnival and the Hostile Hospital only because the ideas were awesome. But now I think the books are starting to drawl and go on and on. I really hope the 13th book has a good concluding ending.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Great!! I loved this book...I've read the whole series this is one of my favs! Snicket never fails to keep his readers in suspense and mystery. Just when you begin to feel you think you know what is going to happen next, the baudelaires get themselves into another situation. It's a great read for all ages, and i highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING I've read ever book in this series and let me say this is an amazing book! I admit that the cover could be better but remember never judge a book by its cover. If you like any of the other books then you should love this one just like I did.
Date published: 2004-11-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now I can continue Even though this book wasn't the best book in the series it was still crucial to the series. So as a big fan I believe you must get this book and if you're not in a rush I would wait until the price goes down. otherwise DIVE IN!
Date published: 2004-11-10
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Grim Indeed! Although I am a huge fan of the Series I was thouroughly dissapointed in this book. It didn't keep me on my toes like the others, it didn't capture my attention and the colour on the front of the book really didn't do anything for my eyes. So unless you are a sea slug, slow it down and wait for this one to be put in the bargain bin!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A Grim Book I am a Lemony Snicket fan but may I just say this: What a disappointment!From just looking at the book one realizes that not much thought had been put into the cover. What an eye sore- a sick sea green. From the immense immagination of Lemony Snicket, comes a book so boring and poposterous it deserves the title the Beastly Book. From the start there is no plot, in the middle there is no plot and at the end there is no plot. The new charcters are horrendous and even Count Olaf sounds like he has stopped thinking very hard about the Baudelaires. If you don't enjoy damp pages of books I suggest you don't read Lemony Snicket's The Grim Grotto!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally!! Finally the eleventh has come out. these books are kick ass and i hope lemony snicket keeps on writing then. the books are relly suspensful and they kick ass, they're even making a movie?
Date published: 2004-10-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINALLY THE ELEVENTH!!! The Series of Unfortunate Events books are the best books i ever read. I'm glad that the eleventh one has finally come out. I hope Lemony Snicket keeps writing these books because they are full of action and make you want to read more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally the Crucible of Cruelty is Broken This, being the continuation of the 13 books in the series of unfortunate events, has continued many patters, and wonderfully witted word plays and puns that mr. snicket has exacted to a science and an art. As suspected by many who read the previous novel, when violet found subtle love in Quigley, the same occurse to Klause. Sunny continues on her verbal advancment and becomes quite coherant in her speach. But the main reason this book was a groundbreaker in the series was because the orphans crucible of cruel luck is at last broken, if not for a fraction at the end. A mildly satisfying read, if you have read previous books this one was better than most
