The Hostile Hospital : A Series of Unfortunate Events : Book 8
Publication Date: 1 October 2001
The next instalment in the A Series of Unfortunate Events collection.
A word from Lemony Snicket ...
Before you throw this awful story to the ground and run as far away from it as possible, you should probably know why. This is the only one which describes every last detail of the Baudelaire children′s miserable stay at Heimlich Hospital, which makes it one of the most dreadful books in the world. There are many pleasant things to read about, but this story contains none of them. Contained within are such burdensome details as misleading newspaper headlines, unnecessary surgery, an intercom system, anaesthesia, heart-shaped balloons, and some very startling news about such things.
With all due respect,
Lemony Snicket. About The Author To the uninitiated, his name may sound more like dessert than good reading; but Lemony Snicket (known to communicate through emissary Daniel Handler, shown here) is a star author to readers who are hooked on his gloomy A Series of Unfortunate Events books. You never know what will happen to those poor Baudelaire orphans next -- only that whatever it is, it's going to be a head-shaking shame.
