Este ha estado s per guay y me encanta que por fin se est n empezando a descubrir COSAS He muerto un poquito con la escena en la que se dan cuenta de que Sunny ya no es un beb Y ay, que despu s de tantos libros le tengo much simo cari o a los Baudelaire Ya s lo tres libros m s y se acab.
I m getting boring with 3 for the last 8 volumes in the series this one drifts close to 2.
The book opens with a double whammy of the oft mentioned bad science combined with the not infrequent impossible to visualise scene.
The Mortmain Mountains are bizarrely cube shaped and have the expected vast vertical cliffs one of which our heroes are hurtling toward in a loose caravan This then begs the question how is there a slope for them to hurtle down And the broader question about how a car is driven to the top of the tallest such mountainAnyhow this hurtling caravan is stopped with drag chute and by pouring a sticky combination of cooking ingredients on the wheels a witches brew containing as an ingredient that famously sticky substance uh olive oilAnyhow we get some Quagmire action in this volume and wait for it snogging Sunny has a bunch of solo scenes with the enemy in which she shows her language, walking, and cooking skills all improving.
Olaaf is deserted by some old cronies and meets some new ones Carmelita Spats is back yay And we get to see the VFD head quarters, albeit in reduced circumstances.
The Sugar Bowl features the ownership of which become the driving force behind much of the remaining series.
there s a frozen waterfall, a variety of highly strained VFD acronyms, including the somewhat risible Verbal Fridge Dialogue Issues of good vs evil and the greying of the space in between continue to feature.
