The End
The End | Lemony Snicket
There is nothing to be found in the pages of A Series of Unfortunate Events but misery and despair. You still have time to choose another international best-seller to read. But if you must know what unpleasantries befall the charming and clever Baudelaire children read on . . . The End is the last in A Series of Unfortunate Events, and even if you braved the previous twelve volumes, you probably cant 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. With 5 million copies sold in the UK alone, one might consider Lemony Snickets A Series of Unfortunate Events to make him one of the most successful childrens authors of the past decade. We, however, consider these miserable so-called adventure stories and the Hollywood film starring Jim Carrey that accompanied the books for children as nothing more than a dreadful mistake.

A while back I kind of joked about figuring out a way to try my own horseradish apple. Well I finally did it and it was surprisingly good. Sorry the pic isn‘t very sexy 😆 I just squeezed a lemon over some I apples and stirred in some fresh horseradish and let it sit for a minute. If you are a bit of a wuss or don‘t like the texture of horseradish you can wipe it off and still taste it on the apples. 😋🍎 #foodspiration

thegreensofa Yum! 😋 2d

Overall it is a good series packed with adventure. Both story line & writing style of author is awesome. it is about unfortunate events, sad & depressing meanwhile it is uplifting as well. 12th book is way better than the last one.Ending could‘ve been more interesting. Author explains idioms & phrases whenever it is used. So this series expanded my vocabulary as well 😂 4⭐️/5 #seriesread2022 Should pick my next series. Any recommendations?

Honestly, a little disappointing as an end because of some unresolved questions but where the Beaudelaires ended up was somewhat satisfying.

Unfortunately, Daniel Handler did not turn back into a decent human in the time it took me to reread the series.

No, not all questions are answered. I understand the author wanted to make a point that the end of the book is not the end of the story but I also understand why so many people felt frustrated. I personally liked the Netflix adaptation better because I felt all of the changes to the story only favored its progression.

pilardib I read some reviews that correctly pointed out some continuity errors. Why make us doubt if the Baudelaires survived or not if there are many mentions throughout the book that they would still be traumatized by Olaf many and many years later?? 2y

I didn‘t quite make my goal, but I‘m happy with the amount of reading I did this year. Considering all the changes, ups and downs, and pressures put on me this year I‘m dang proud of how I‘ve pulled through- and not just in my reading. Also, I‘m clearly not as good at keeping up with what I‘ve read on this platform.

Book 94 of the year, finished Nov 11, audio

Im glad this is over. The series concluded without answering any questions. It left me frustrated and wishing I hadn't started reading it and/or that I had followed Snicket's constant advice to read something else.

Will not read again.

Love this series (and the Netflix adaptation actually answers most of your lingering questions!) Count Olaf feels like a particularly relevant villain in his ability to manipulate those around him with obvious lies and flimsy cover ups. #middlegrade

85eliana Both! When I finished the book series, I felt frustrated with so many unanswered questions. Yet, at the same time, I like what was being said thematically by having so much be unknown. The ending of the book series wasn‘t as upbeat as show, but it had enough hope the most of the show‘s ending felt earned. I‘m glad Lemony had his moment with little Beatrice. 4y

Did I just binge watch the 3rd and final season of A series of Unfortunate Events in 1 1/2 days? Yes, yes I did, and it was worth it. 💙Going to reread this series - last time I read it was when I was twelve and the details of the last couple books are a bit fuzzy.

MirrorMask Yeah, I watched all of it yesterday and now I want to read the books. 4y

After reading the whole series, I feel very well prepared for the verbal section of the GRE. 👍👍👍

We are home from our short visit to NYC now and happy the kitties are still alive and well after their first time home alone. The furniture has been rearranged, but the Christmas tree is miraculously still standing and there are no loose tarantulas or gold teeth or remnants of booby traps. We are both very tired and incapable of doing anything other than read! 👍

What an appropriate book to finish out my 2018 reading goal challenge. Apparently I should have set it a bit higher, but I don‘t read as much in summer so it‘ll slow down for a bit now until it gets cold here again. I can‘t wait to share this series with our future kiddos.

i have mixed feelings. i get what the author was going for, and i think he did an okay job of it, but there‘s a difference between “not getting every answer” and “not getting any answer”. it‘s easy to write an intriguing story if you don‘t have to tie up the loose ends - a better book would be equally intriguing, but actually answer some questions.

A kind of meh ending to an interesting series. An unfair amount of loose threads, in my humblest opinion, but there you are.

This book honestly felt rather unnecessary, even if it was fun. The end is really unsatisfying, but that completely fits the rest of the series so it makes a lot of sense. Still, I would have liked a little more closure.
