A real bumer to know it was the end of a great series. I would have rated a "5" if Lemony Snicket had not left me hanging with several unanswered questions!!!!

After I read this book I was more than a little irritated at Lemony SNicket for not answering all of my questions. But as I think about it, I enjoy researching and I think that if we look hard enough there is still more to be found in the series. I for one am waiting for "Horseradish: bitter truths you can't avoid" to say weather or not I am angry with Snicket. The one question that seems less and less likly to be answered is What is in the Sugarbowl.

The End is very good. I love the books, and this one is very good. The end o f this book has a very unexpected twist that you would never even imagine, and you'll find out some pretty interesting things. That's all. Toodles!

When I first got into the Series of Unfortunate Events, I found the books witty and original. I, however, found the last book's ending disappointing. It seemed like it dragged on, went off on many tangents, and didn't seem to answer any of the important mysteries that kept building as the story progressed. The book seemed to give more thought to characters the Baudelaires had just met rather than characters they had come to build solid relationships with.
As for the Baudelaires, it was frustrating to see that every time they had a chance to lose olaf for awhile (ex, throwing him overboard off the ship) they decided not to because it would stoop to the bad guy's level. The same thing happened when they decided not to set a trap for esme squalor to get their baby sister back because it would be a bad guy thing to do. Come on, honestly. Sometimes the children were just too good for their own good.
Anyways, although the last book in the series was the longest, it felt like it had the least substance. It just felt linear, nothing seemed to build up to anything and I was left feeling like a castaway on a stranded island.

"Staff Pick" by ,

All good things must come to an end

"Review A Day" by , "Fans by now know what to expect, and Snicket (the nom de plume of Daniel Handler) features more devilry by Count Olaf, lots of vocabulary lessons, and helpful translations of the dialogue of Sunny, the youngest Baudelaire....Thankfully, The End proves a more satisfying read than the pointless harpoonings of The Penultimate Peril." (read the entire CSM review)
"Review" by , "The series' ending is sad. And definitely unfortunate: The End leaves some loose ends....It does, however, provide a bittersweet ending, one that readers won't expect."
"Review" by , "The mysteries pulled us in, but what makes the series irresistible is Snicket's dark humor....Readers won't want to miss Olaf's last ridiculous disguise, and the secrets embedded in this last safe place from the treachery of the world."
"Review" by , "The End may not reach the comic highs of, say, The Austere Academy (wherein the infant Sunny, unable to form sentences, was forced to work as an administrative assistant). But it's more suspenseful than the other books..."
"Review" by , "[A] treasure trove of literary allusions...clever word play, sly humor and snarky asides. But the snarkiness began to grow wearisome by The Ersatz Elevator...Snicket has not really tied up the tale in a satisfying way."
"Synopsis" by , All things must come to an end. Thankfully, this includes A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. The 13th and final installment in the groundbreaking series will answer readers' most burning questions: Will Count Olaf prevail? Will the Baudelaires survive? Will the series end happily? And if there's nothing out there, what was that noise?
"Synopsis" by ,
Is there no rest for the travel worn and weary? Not if youand#8217;re Nathaniel Fludd, the worldand#8217;s youngest beastologist-in-training! All Nate really wants is to track down his missing parents, but when a unicorn falls mysteriously ill, Nateand#8217;s Aunt Phil makes it clear where a beastologistand#8217;s duty lies: to the beasts.and#160;

And if taking care of the worldand#8217;s beasts isnand#8217;t difficult enough, Nate and Aunt Phil must also keep them safe from the villainous Obediah Fludd, who intends to do them harm. With all this taking up every last bit of his energy and time, will Nate ever find the parents he is so absolutely convinced are alive?
