*gasps* Tyler! You don't like Harry Potter!? I will have to ignore you from now on...(Kidding)
Yeah, I thought it was pretty dull, but I thought TVV was worse...
I find it amazing how many people thought the Miserale Mill and the Vile Village were dull. In fact, the Vile Village is my 3rd favorite (fav The Ersatz Elevator and 2nd the Hostile Hospital) I like them all. But if I HAD to pick one, I would say my least favorite is the Reptile Room.

Yeah, I know. I'm not sure what it is about them, but they jsut bore me to death. I could just only bring my self to reread them. (I used to buy them, read them and then read them aloud to my cousin. ) Yippee for TEE!
I didn't like TMM, but I thought TVV was great! In TMM, I don't like the way Violet and Klaus switch places. Violet should always be the inventor, and Klaus should always reasearch. I like it that way. And i agree that TRR is the most boring.
Where there's smoke, there's fire. Remember that when you see yourself surrounded in it. It could always be helpful.

I think part of it might be is that the Baudelaires were always tired in that book, and some of it rubbed off on the readers. I don't like it because the ending is so bizzarre, along with the whole situation, that it didn't seem at all realistic.
