    I enjoyed this book a lot I never felt bored It was full of comedy, adventure, and I guess a bit of mystery It wasn t exactly mystery,like puzzle solving But I guess a lot of books do that I liked the characters They were very unique I also liked the way the author wrote Sometimes he would explain word s definitions or the meaning of phrases which helped me understand the book better It did say that Lemony Snicket s fans would enjoy this and I did I read his Series of Unfort I enjoyed this book a lot I never felt bored It was full of comedy, adventure, and I guess a bit of mystery It wasn t exactly mystery,like puzzle solving But I guess a lot of books do that I liked the characters They were very unique I also liked the way the author wrote Sometimes he would explain word s definitions or the meaning of phrases which helped me understand the book better It did say that Lemony Snicket s fans would enjoy this and I did I read his Series of Unfortunate Events series but I am not done with it This book unlike Lemony Snicket s Series of Unfortunate Events series was not gloomy at all I plan on reading the rest of this series I accidentally started on the last book of the series I enjoyed this books humor and adventure The pictures were also unique and helped me understand the story a little

    This is maybe my fave from the original trilogy It is like the other two powered by nostalgia and would maybe get another rating if it wasn t for that, but it is still amusing and absurd The family is on the one hand a hell of a bunch and I can t imagine how exhausting it has to be for poor Eddie to live with them, on the other hand they stick together and are carrying in their ways and loving of each others Still a good book to hear while drawing or commuting.

    Overall, I enjoyed this series, but it did get a bit repetitive at times I found this one a bithumorous than the others, but maybe because I was used to the characters and their stories by that point.

    Eddie and all of his crazy family members return in Terrible Times, the third and final installment in the Eddie Dickens trilogy In this book, Eddie is sent to America to look into the goings on at the offices of the Terrible Times, a newspaper owned by both his father and his Mad Uncle Jack The editor of the paper had been in touch with the Dickens family, reporting on profits and the like every six months, but there s been no news for some time now and someone needs to go and find out what Eddie and all of his crazy family members return in Terrible Times, the third and final installment in the Eddie Dickens trilogy In this book, Eddie is sent to America to look into the goings on at the offices of the Terrible Times, a newspaper owned by both his father and his Mad Uncle Jack The editor of the paper had been in touch with the Dickens family, reporting on profits and the like every six months, but there s been no news for some time now and someone needs to go and find out what s going on Mr Dickens can t go after hurting his back, and Mrs Dickens is on crutches It s also impractical for Mad Uncle Jack or Even Madder Aunt Maud to go because, well, they re both mad of course, so that leaves Eddie to represent the family.Eddie is delighted to go What an adventure this will be, sailing to America This won t, however, be his first time on board a ship I won t tell you about that though, you shall have to read about that for yourself Eddie will be sailing aboard the Pompous Pig, along with a cargo hold full of left shoes Why just left shoes, you ask Well, I m not going to spoil it for you Also on board is the world famous Dog s Bone Diamond and some traveling companions of a rather dubious nature It begins to look questionable whether Eddie will make it to America s shores when things on board get very complicated with an unexpected stowaway.Terrible Times was a delightful conclusion to the Eddie Dickens trilogy, and will appeal to readers of all ages DISCLAIMER Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for fair use for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research Fair use is a use permitted by copyright statute that might otherwise be infringing Non profit, educational or personal use tips the balance in favor of fair use FTC DISCLAIMER As mentioned in this video, some of these books were sent to me for review and some were purchased with my own money I was not paid to review them Receiving review copies does not influence my review, all opinions in my reviews are my own

    Terrible Times, the last book out of three in Philip Ardagh s The Eddie Dickens Trilogy tells a fictional story about the humorous misadventures of Eddie Dickens on his voyage to America The theme in this marvelous tale is anyone could be a hero In this final sequence, Eddie sets sail to America with a mission on figuring out what has gone wrong in the offices of Terrible Times But his voyage to America seems to be delayed by some misfortunes at Awful End Yet soon enough young Eddie Dickens Terrible Times, the last book out of three in Philip Ardagh s The Eddie Dickens Trilogy tells a fictional story about the humorous misadventures of Eddie Dickens on his voyage to America The theme in this marvelous tale is anyone could be a hero In this final sequence, Eddie sets sail to America with a mission on figuring out what has gone wrong in the offices of Terrible Times But his voyage to America seems to be delayed by some misfortunes at Awful End Yet soon enough young Eddie Dickens a boards the Pompous Pig in which he encounters Swags, a convict he met in Dreadful Acts not only that but he soon discovers Even Madder Aunt Maud had somehow sneaked on board Eddie schemes up a plan to get her out of hiding they will use the Dog s Bone Diamond to allure her but this being a story with misfortunes, one occurs at this moment and the precious jewel goes missing The suspense gets higher as you soon come to find out Mad Uncle Jack and Mrs Dickens come to the rescue and Lady Constance Bustle s Eddie s companion on the voyage reveals her true persona Terrible Times was indeed an entertaining story The thrills made it seem a roller coaster ride, though I can t explain for that would ruin the story This book was very descriptive Philip Ardagh has a way with details when it comes to informing his readers I could visualize every event that happened especially with sketches provided within the pages An issue this book relates to is how crimes can be conducted in secrecy but hopefully there is someone there to save the day I would recommend Terrible Times for children who would want some sense of adventure if their bored and have nothing better to do If you liked A Bad Beginning by Lemony snicket, you ll surely like this one because of the interesting plot followed in this book Overall, this book was cool and a good read

    Entertaining and funny yet, the mystery wasn t play out well Eddie didn t get on to ship until near the end It been awhile since I read the first two books in the Eddie Dickens Trilogy I found that Terrible is the weakest in plot I understand why Eddie had to go to America and not his parents That was done well but, there was not a lot of action I am saying that the story could have been a little bit longer I like the interesting fact that I didn t know about I like it when I learn from Entertaining and funny yet, the mystery wasn t play out well Eddie didn t get on to ship until near the end It been awhile since I read the first two books in the Eddie Dickens Trilogy I found that Terrible is the weakest in plot I understand why Eddie had to go to America and not his parents That was done well but, there was not a lot of action I am saying that the story could have been a little bit longer I like the interesting fact that I didn t know about I like it when I learn from book whether their fiction or nonfiction What annoys me, and this is just the inner sailor in me The fact that they called what stir the ship a wheel A wheel I m sorry, the correct term is a helm Maybe the author is trying to bounce out his knowledge making realistic that not everyone knows everything in all the areas of expertise
