For chapter seven I was the passage master. I had to choose passages that had strong significance to the chapter while I was reading it. Chapter Seven Page 90 “Klaus felt an icy chill go through him as the horrible man spoke. He had never been so terrified in all his life. He found that his arms and legs were shaking uncontrollably, as if he were having some sort of fit. His mouth was making strange sounds, like Sunny always did, as he struggled to find something to say. ‘Ah …’ Klaus heard himself choke out. ‘Ah…’” I chose this particular passage because of the detailed description of Klaus’s reaction to what the man told him about Olaf. The man’s comments are particularly horrific and scary, and the author allows the reader to get a vivid mental picture of how Klaus reacts both outwardly and inwardly. Page 92 “Maybe, just maybe, the book Klaus was smuggling could save their lives.” I chose this sentence because it ends the chapter with a hopeful feeling that the children might get out of this horrible situation. Throughout the chapters, the reader is looking for something good to happen to the Baudelaire children. This sentence gives them hope that something good might just happen in the next chapter.
