Reader reviews for A Series of Unfortunate Events #13: The End

Oy, how annoying!Twelve books! TWELVE books posing question after question and mystery after mystery with twists and intrigue and all that for what? Not answers, that's for damn sure.This book didn't tie anything together. The sugar bowl. The poison darts. The Schism. All dismissed in some silly existentialist philosophical conclusion about unanswered questions and the Great Unknown. Not cool.It was a little bit thought-provoking, I guess, but come on! If I wanted thought-provoking, I'd have read a thought-provoking book. The first 12 books in this series were light, fun entertainment and I loved them. To suddenly turn that all around into some awkward, half-ass Philosophy 101 lesson is bad form.So I'm a little pissed, as many people are. It was like he couldn't think of a clever way to answer his own questions. Lame and lame.

Great End to the series and really enjoyed them. After reading all of the 13 books I thought that 'The End was one of the best. I loved the mystery about Beatrice and who she was and only finding out in the last chapter. AThe only disappointment was that some of the questions that I had weren't answered about Count Olaf and Kit but I loved it all the same. Amazing adventure of the Baudelaire triplets and a great read!

I liked this series a lot, and this was a pretty good ending, but a bit of a let down in that it didn't reveal nearly as much as I'd hoped. There's still so much I'm curious about, especially the damn question mark. There is just so much about VFD that I want to know and it's frustrating...

What a way to finish off a series. "Lemony Snicket" couldn't make a more heart breaking, depressing, yet at the same time perfect novel.

Oddly unclimactic conclusion to the series, it felt like some closure issues were sidestepped. Still fun, but not his best work by some degree.

This book puts an end to A series of incredibly unfortunate events; however, when it comes it unfortunate events, there is no beginning and no ending. We all share in the ongoing events of the world - or something like that. This series is worth the read. Olaf, if only I could have known you better.

I was at the beach with them and I really liked the book but it just didn't end how I thought it would end or how I kind of wanted to end. I want to thank Lemony for writing these books.

Not quite what I had hoped for. I was a bit disapointed. But he warned us...it was a series of unfortunate events.

By now, I was just tired of the series, but I stuck with it and finished it.

I’m not sure whether I’m satisfied with the end of this tale…The End doesn’t really end. The questions it raises, whether anyone is ever either a Noble person or a Villainous one is a good one and worth some thought.
