As their outrageous misfortune continues, the Baudelaire orphans are shipped off to a miserable boarding school, Prufrock Preparatory School. They can't help but notice the enormous stone arch bearing the school's motto Memento Mori or "Remember you will die". This is not a cheerful greeting and certainly marks an inauspicious beginning to a very bleak story. They befriend the two Quagmire triplets and find that they have been followed by the dreaded Count Olaf.

I loved this book! It is probably my most favorite from the ones I have read so far. (Up to 10, not including 8) (I'm reading the rest soon though). It was a horrid place to be, but they made great friends and had wonderful times! The end made me wanting to see what happened next! I love this series and I encourage everyone to read it!

Another unfortunate addition to this series. I keep finding myself in wonder on how strange yet humorous the writing style is. It's very entertaining and funny to me, and really makes me appreciate the author. I don't normally have experiences reading children's books where I finish feeling not just accomplished that I read it, but that I enjoyed it.
Love the introduction of the Quagmire's, and I'm excited to see the new developments coming in the next book!

loved this book, especially when the orphans meet (finally!) some helpful, nice people. I recommend reading the rest of the series, and other books by lemony snicker as well.

I really liked this book because it made me want to read more. My favourite part of this book was when they suddenly found out count olafs plan. I enjoyed this part because it was very detailed. Overall, I have no negative feedback about this book.

Enjoyable series. I suggest you to read the whole series, i'm on book 9 and I am wondering how this one is going to turn out like. Can anyone tell me how it is?

This is one of my favorites so far because the Baudelaire orphans make friends! They are not alone in trying to escape Count Olaf. When oh when will Violet, Klaus and Sunny meet at least one adult with half the moly of the Quagmire Triplets?! Their dear departed parents must be absolutely spinning in their graves due to the deplorable treatment that Mr. Poe allows to happen under his watch.

A very good book; though the events of the series become a bit monotonous, I like the difference in plans that both Count Olaf and the Beaudelaire orphans create.
