Dear reader, There is nothing to be found in Lemony Snicket’s `A Series of Unfortunate Events’ but misery and despair. You still have time to choose another international best-selling series to read. But if you insist on discovering the unpleasant adventures of the Baudelaire orphans, then proceed with caution… Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are intelligent children. They are charming, and resourceful, and have pleasant facial features. Unfortunately, they are exceptionally unlucky. In The End, the siblings face 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 only took me a few hours to read this, I was that excited to finally be reaching the last book in the series. And I wasn’t disappointed at all.
I sort of expected for the final book to be more of a roundup and answering all of the questions rather than being another story of a predicament the Baudelaires find themselves in. But it didn’t disappoint me that it didn’t jump straight to answering every question I’ve had in the series.
And in the end, most of my questions weren’t answered. But again, that didn’t disappoint me. I half expected the series to end in a way that was quite open ended and left the mystery hanging.
I enjoy the fact that I’m still trying to work out myself about VFD and all of the little secrets throughout the series. This series definitely isn’t going to leave my mind in a hurry.
