Book Review #581 - The End (A Series of Unfortunate Events #13) by Lemony Snicket


My Rating: 3.5/5

Source: Bought

Buy: The Book Depository 


Dear Reader,
You are presumably looking at the back of this book, or the end of THE END. The end of THE END is the best place to begin THE END, because if you read THE END from the beginning of the beginning of THE END to the end of the end of THE END, you will arrive at the end of the end of your rope.
This book is the last in A Series of Unfortunate Events, and even if you braved the previous twelve volumes, you probably can't stand such unpleasantries as a fearsome storm, a suspicious beverage, a herd of wild sheep, an enormous bird cage, and a truly haunting secret about the Baudelaire parents.
It has been my solemn occupation to complete the history of the Baudelaire orphans, and at last I am finished. You likely have some other occupation, so if I were you I would drop this book at once, so THE END does not finish you.
With all due respect,
Lemony Snicket
This is the thirteenth and final book in the A Series of Unfortunate Events series and one of my favourite books in the series as well. 
Finally some questions were answered in this book but the ending created even more questions. 
The unique writing style wasn't as witty in this installment and the plot was weaker than the previous ones but I overall enjoyed this book a lot more than the previous ones. 
The new characters were all intriguing and I thought it was about time someone other than the orphans saw Olaf as the villain that he is - and he got locked in a cage for it. 
I wasn't a big fan of the ending as it didn't wrap things up neat enough. There was a sudden and weird romance and just as a whole it was rather disappointing.
