Spoiler Free Review: A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Vile Village

Author: Lemony Snicket

“I’ve put calls in, to various relatives, but they’ve heard all about the terrible things that tend to happen wherever you go”

What could be worse for the Baudelaire children than being placed in the care of someone who doesn’t care about them? Being placed in the care of a whole village that doesn’t care about them! The Baudelaires travel to the village of V.F.D hoping to follow up on the clue from the Quagmire children. but the Village of Fowl Devotees seems to be a dead end, but then the crows start leaving the Baudelaires poetry! What is going on in this vile little village?!

This book is a turning point in the series that needed to happen. The formula was getting old and we needed to see a change. I liked how the basic concept changed through plot development. It makes sense that at a certain point the Baudelaires would feel they need to stand on their own two feet.
