Train travel! Murder! Librarians! A Series Finale!

On all other nights, the train departs from Stain'd Station and travels to the city without stopping. But not tonight. You might ask, why is this night different from all other nights? But that's the wrong question. Instead ask, where is this all heading? And what happens at the end of the line?

The Dark

A cute little story for those who are scared of the dark. I really enjoyed it and wrote a short review

3,5/5

As I've said before, this is past the point in the series in which the stories are breaking out of the mold a little bit. The Baudelaire orphans are no longer stuck to random distant relatives that barely take care of them for a couple of chapters. They are constantly being chased by the police, they are taking action and directly confronting Olaf in his own game most of the time.

This time, they are sent to a circus in the middle of nowhere, full of Olaf's allies and they must disguise themselves to survive. Beyond that, they have to live among freaks and are being constantly mistreated. Overall, it's a pretty interesting development, even if lacking in a couple of places.

Once again, the morals of the series are a bit off to me. The orphans start asking themselves whether or not they are bad people, having done questionable actions while trying to escape Olaf. And, again, even keeping in mind they are kids in a book series for kids, it's a silly development. When they lie, when they cheat or when they steal, they are literally forced to do so in order to survive. Hopefully the next books in the series develop these morals a bit better, because it does feel like a silly message to pass to young kids.
