The Baudelaire's start taking matters into their own hands...

I enjoyed the climax scene in this book because it is the biggest close-call yet! Klaus is amazing, and is amazing in the climax scene.

Favorite quote from this book:
"There are many things in this world I do not know. I do not know how butterflies get out of their cocoons without damaging their wings. I do not know why anyone would boil vegetables when roasting them is tastier. I do not know how to make olive oil, and I do not know why...more

This one was really good because I think that there was a lot of drama and tension, so I couldn't put down the book at points!
The Hostile Hospital is the eighth installment to the Series of Unfortunate Events. In this chapter of the series Violet, Clause, and Sonny are on the run from being captured. They are accused of killing their former friend. They were framed by their nemesis Count Olaf. He has tried numerous attempts to steal their fortune. His plans this time are to lead the children in to a hospital. He kidnaps Violet and has plans to perform on her in a live audience. Klaus and Sonny pose as a doctor and res...more

A hospital is not a very cosy place. Add Count Olaf, the Baudelaires and a bunch of Volunteers for Disease and it gets even more uncomfortable.

I love the development that happens throughout the series. The Hostile Hospital is book 8 and Sunny has begun to speak real words. Also you get more and more information on Lemony Snicket and what really happened the day of the fire. I’m really curious about the big solution... my suspicion at the moment is that (view spoiler)...more
Whenever I was bored in high school, I would try to transform my teachers' lectures into as many spoonerisms and anagrams as possible. This sort of word play -- a favorite of mine (and the cause of my friends' occasional frustration when I admit that I was too busy flipping letters in their words to hear some piece of compelling gossip...) -- I learned from The Hostile Hospital, as well as the series as a whole, when I was younger.

The Hostile Hospital, which picks up almost directly where The Vi...more

This "woe-filled" collection of thirteen books about the tribulations of three unusually talented orphans will keep adults entertained as well as children. When I first saw the series I thought, "That looks too depressing," but soon I discovered the hilarity in overabundant alliteration, contemptible villains, and idiotic bystanders.

As the series progresses and the mysteries deepen, the children's characters grow and develop in surprising ways as togehter they face obstacles and a growing numbe...more
This is the first of the series that I'm questioning leaving in my classroom library. The series as a whole is fun and I adore the tone of it and the fun vocabulary lessons and hilarious analogies.

There's a scene in this one, however, that I'm not sure how an eight-year-old would react. (view spoiler)...more

For the first time ever, they are on their own. The Baudelaires are convinced that no one can help them any longer. There's Mr. Poe who does nothing more than send them to people who are supposed to be taking care of them but end up.. let's just say they either try to kill the Baudelaire orphans(?), end up getting killed themselves, accuse the orphans of something utterly terrible, or are not brave enough to help the Baudelaires and be their guardian.

Things are not looking up for the children. A...more

After eluding the clutches of Count Olaf and avoiding being burned at the stake by a bunch of vile villagers, the Baudelaire orphans now find themselves in a van full of Volunteers Fighting Disease. The van, crammed with happy, singing volunteers and heart-shaped balloons, is heading to Heimlich Hospital to cheer up some patients and strum their guitars. Our orphans secure a job for themselves in the hospital’s Library of Records, where they ma...more
Stavolta, arrivati all'ottavo episodio, la struttura cambia.
I Baudelaire:
- iniziano a scegliere da soli il loro destino
- non possono più fare affidamento sul signor Poe (per quanto fosse sempre stato inutile, era la loro unica speranza di qualcuno che s'interessasse a loro)
- La loro fama cambia, devono scappare non da olaf ma dal resto del mondo che li crede assassini
- il loro scopo non è più sfuggire semplicemente a olaf, ma scoprire una serie di misteri: cos'è V.F.? chi è sopravvissuto all'i...more
While this is not my first time reading the Hostile Hospital, I find that this is the book where the Beaudelaire's begin to shine as individuals under their bad circumstances. Having no guardian to protect them they are, and the reader, made aware of their painful isolated existence from 'everyday' society.

From the slow beginning of this book (the predecessor to Hostile Hospital was not my personal favourite in the series) to the gripping moments when it looks like Olaf may finally have his han...more
In seeking out the answers to V. F. D., the Baudelaires are smuggled (a word which here means "taken into" and has nothing to do with illegal drug operations) into a hospital. Here they must engage in trickery and disguises as they are still the subjects of a manhunt-- a word here meaning "people think they're murderers".

They are teased (a word here meaning "they find a page of a file") with minimal clues to their past, and once again encounter Olaf and his unpleasant crew. One never grows tired...more

A Series of Unfortunate Events 8: The Hostile Hospital / 9780061757204

I've been reading this series in order since I first gained interest through the tie-in movie "Lemony Snicket's a Series of Unfortunate Events". I love the series for its superb characterization, lovely writing, quirky plotlines, and deeply dark humor, but it's worth noting that the series so far has been extremely formulaic: Mr. Poe drops the children off with a new guardian, things get progressively worse as Count Olaf shows...more

In this part of the book the kids are at a hospital .They are Volunteers because they copied what Jaques Snicket have said he said I am a Volunteer...... But then the people at the village had coverd his mouth forcing him to be tied.The kids are at a group of Volunteer fighting department they are a group of nice and fun people that sing to sick people and give them heart shaped balloon to make them smile.Violet Kaus and Sunny both had changed their names to something similar so nobody knows.On...more
The 8th book of the series and I'm still hooked. The story keeps growing on me with every chapter, I just wish I could swallow those books! The most unexpected ending yet, the most miserable book of the series, the first book with no Mr Poe salvations... Yikes, what's to come next! And I just love the Snicket/Beatrice mysterious story line. I want more, more, more!
I liked this book because it offered more character depth especially in Sunny and Klaus as they wonder if the desperate measures they have taken throughout their plight have perhaps made them a bit manipulative and possibly even villainous. The plot buildup, as well as character structure, gains much strength through this book. Can't wait to read the last five again.
بچه ها به عنوان فراری مجرم شناخته شده، همیشه در حال فرار هستند، ولی این بار به بیمارستانی می‌روند، که آنجا «کنت الاف» می‌خواهد با عملی عجیب سر «ویولت» را قطع کند، تا بتواند بر آنها مسلط شود، که با کمک کلاوس و سانی نمی‌تواند. بچه‌ها با مدارکی حاکی از اینکه پدر یا مادر آنها زنده‌است، رو به رو می‌شوند
This book gave me the chills! I'm loving this series more and more. The plot is getting more mature, and it's really nice to see that the Baudelaires take their lives into their own.
Harrison Yates
The Series of Unfortunate Events is by far my favorite series and books to read altogether. Snicket takes you through the adventures of three siblings who keep running into trouble whenever they meet their uncle. These nail biting adventures constantly keeps the reader intrigued and wondering what will happen and if they will survive. In the end they ultimately survive and live together without any risks of their uncle jeopardizing their safety like he has. I chose the Hostile Hospital because t...more
An apple a day doesn't keep Count Olaf away, especially if you're running from the law, the media, and decide to hide in half of a hospital!

The series keeps getting better :)

The Hostile Hospital is very very grim and dark, but that's to be expected if you've been following A Series of Unfortunate Events this far along. Book #8 follows the Baudelaires where we last left them, narrowly escaping from the Village of Fowl Devotees and wandering the desolate landscape in search of some sanctuary. They end up at a nasty hospital run by a terrible person, and while Count Olaf may not physically appear during almost the entire book, his presence and terrifying shadow is lurk...more
In this volume VFD stands for Volunteers Fighting Disease. The Baudelaires join their ranks and end up having to save eldest sister Violet from unnecessary surgery!

There's a little bit more sleuthing in this volume with the Baudeliares decoding anagrams to find Violet and piecing together clues to see if one of their parents survived the fire that changed their lives forever.

I listened to the audiobook as read by Tim Curry, good stuff. Recommended for family road trips and readers grades 4-6+.

I despise this book. I despise them all. Reading them made me so mad and depressed, and reading reviews of them just amplifies those feelings. People adore these books. They list them among their favorite books of all time. Kids and adults alike love them and say they're great. So I don't quite know what they're missing. I feel it's my duty and responsibility to reveal these books for what they are. But I'll probably undergo a serious case of angst and start questioning myself and my motives nea

Det känns som ett tag sedan jag läste en bok ur A Series of Unfortunate Events så det var roligt att komma tillbaka till serien och läsa en bra bok.

The Hostile Hospital tar vid direkt efter The Vile Village. Syskonen Baudelaire flyr från en utklädd Count Olaf och de hemska byborna I V.F.D. De kommer fram till en affär mitt ute i ingenstans, där syskonen försöker att kontakta Mr Poe, men utan resultat. Syskonen tvingas strax att fly igen, då affärsägaren kopplar ihop barnen med lögner spridda i t...more

As far as these books go this one seems to be more exciting.

In my opinion the series can be broken into 5 different parts:
1. Books 1-4 are the fortune books (where the plot is driven by Count Olaf coming up with schemes to get the orphan's fortune while they aimlessly go from guardian to guardian).
2. Books 5-7 are the Quagmire books (where the plot is still going through guardians but now the are trying to save their friends, the two Quagmire triplets).
3. Books 8-10 are the Snicket File books (...more

This book takes place in a hospital. The orphan’s main internal struggle is that they are afraid to be found by Count Olaf. There main external struggle is that Count Olaf always follows them.

During my time reading this book I made a text-to-text connection. Throughout the book the orphans had to hide and pretend to people they...more

Lemony Snicket is the pen name of American novelist Daniel Handler. Snicket is the author of several children's books, serving as the narrator of A Series of Unfortunate Events (his best-known work) and appearing as a character within the series. Because of this, the name Lemony Snicket may refer to both a fictional character and a real person. This article deals primarily with the character.
