If my shoddy memory can remember, they were mentioned but not actually there. Quick check on Wikipedia says:I think I'm going to reread the series.
I forgot. What happened to the Quagmire triplets? Were they in the Penultimate Peril or is that just my imagination?
Did anyone notice that when the Baudelaire's first meet Frank (or Ernest?) he tries to communicate with them by the bell code but they don't notice? I thought it was so cool, haha but I forgot which page it was.In The Penultimate Peril, Kit Snicket tells the Baudelaires that Quigley and Kit were planning to meet up with the three children, but he received word from his other two siblings that they were being attacked in the sky. Kit says that he stole a helicopter to help them and Hector, and would do this by constructing a huge net.
I loved the books -- I just happen to be a fan of that droll style. And I liked the way it didn't seem to really ever "wimp" out and provide simplistic happy endings.Hah. I remember how depressed I would feel whenever Snicket delivered his "don't read this" section because I was so young that I believed what he said about how depressing it was going to be. Of course I read it anyways and finished the series when I grew older.
I still enjoy the series from time to time. The simplicity of the writing and the absurdity of the things that happened. I can just imagine some form of dramatic reading for this book. I'm easily impressed as a reader.
