I was the passage master for chapter six. I chose the part on page 78, “Count Olaf reached out…the tower they were forbidden to enter." I found this passage very disturbing and creepy. Snicket does an excellent job of portraying Count Olaf’s despicable nature. The description of his dirty fingernails and threatening tone of voice reminded me a lot of Heathcliff, the villain in Emily Bronte’s gothic novel Wuthering Heights. I almost shivered right along with Violet as I read the passage. It's amazing how Snicket is able to evoke this reaction using relatively few words.
