Okay, rant time.I've spent the last few weeks reading this series from beginning to end. I have been certainly entertained by the language, intrigued by the story-outside-the-story, as it were, and concerned for the Baudelaires. The series has been so grim that, on occasion, I had to take breaks from it because it was honestly starting to get me down.But, obviously, I persevered. I had numerous questions and, as I do when I feel my entertainment has been in the hands of a good writer, trusted th [...]
This book INFURIATED me! What a lazy author. Taking us down the garden path through 12 books and then ending the series without really completing the story. As a children's librarian, I no longer recommend this series to kids. I hate to see them as disappointed as I was at this really stupid final book. Shame on you, Mr. Snicket!! You took the chicken's way out. Next time, have an idea of where you expect the series to go before you start it. Truly shameful.
Like life and college, this book leaves you with more questions than answers. However, there is a satisfaction in knowing one cannot possibly know all the answers to all of the questions in the world, and neither can the Baudelaires. This book is particularly suitable for adults who have experienced rotten childhoods and need the confirmation of gaining what he/she missed hearing: you might never know the answer. I am very sad this series is over, but in my head, the Baudelaires are still alive [...]
I understand that this book made a lot of people angry, by not explaining all the central mysteries, by not wrapping up, by introducing lots more information that the book doesn't resolve. But this is where we were heading: to the point where we know that we can't know everything, to the point where the villain is no longer two-dimensionally evil and our heroes accept that they have done terrible things.It's still Lemony Snicket, so it's still funny and clever and everything you liked about the [...]
May I steal the lyrics from the eponymous Door's song?This is the end Beautiful friend This is the end My only friend, the end Of our elaborate plans, the end Of everything that stands, the end No safety or surprise, the end I'll never look into your eyes.n The important thing to recognise here is that in a continued move to the meta that Patrick Rothfuss might admire (and even have studied) this is a story about stories. In order that we not forget this fact/theme (a theme that, incidentally, i [...]
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 rea [...]

Well.Snicket himself told me that no book can truly contain the end of a story, although it may describe the end of a person. I finished this book on October 13, 2007, exactly one year after it was released. It was not as funny or exciting as the last few books in the series, but it might be more allegorical than all the rest. It had heaps of literary allusions, only a few of which I managed to catch-- Robinson Crusoe,Moby Dick,the Bible To sum it all up, the biggest "problem" with this book is [...]
I don’t even know what to say. After reading the last book I reevaluated all my ratings for this series because I realized I was a little harsh. I was planning on doing a full series review but now I don’t think I can. I only read this series because it was short and I needed to read it last year to catch up on my reading challenge but now I’ve realized I’m glad I read it. It’s very different and unique. Everything that happened was tragic and that’s what sets it apart. The series wa [...]
The End is a very strange book because although it serves as the Baudelaire orphans's beautiful swan song, it also makes you reflect on the on the state of the world and where your life fits within it. I don't mean in a existentialist way, such as "Who am I?", "What am I doing here?" or "Why is there a person disguised as a bush standing on my rug?", but rather in a way that The End wasn't about answering all the questions and mysteries set in the previous unfortunate events to take place in the [...]
"letting their tears run down their faces and into the sea, which some have said is nothing but a library of all tears in history."The. End. I have so many more questions than I have answers, but I think it's actually not going to drive me crazy. I love this series and it's vague, eerie, surreal tone. There's so much beautiful character development throughout the series that I didn't pick up as a child and I'm so, so glad I did this reread. The struggle with their moral compass is so real and re [...]
Not an end I would've preferred but I still very much enjoyed it. I like to think the Baudelaires are still out there somewhere, carrying on what their parents left behind and making life the best it could be. I'd love to read about what they are like as adults, I think that would be amazing. :) I did cry when I closed this book because I'm going to miss these characters greatly. I will need to purchase all 13 for my own shelves eventually because it has become one of my favorite series of all t [...]
NOTE: Spoiler alert! (Thanks to Tommy for letting me know)Mediocre and disappointing. For the most part, The Series of Unfortunate Events provides a good set of light reading. Repetitive phrasing, stark imagery and clever descriptions of words gives them the definitive feel of children's books while the plots and dialogues are adequately entertaining for adults. Though the character development is certainly a little thin, the reader still finds themselves deeply attached to Sunny, Violet and Cla [...]
Rather than review all the Series of Unfortunate Events books individually, I'll just say this here: I loved this whole series, it's blackly funny and engaging and filled with so many little tricks and gags that could only possibly work in print fiction (which is why the movie was such a disaster), that they remind you why you love reading in the first place.For the record, around the third book I was worried that things were starting to get too formulaic and that I might be getting bored with t [...]
I'm a mixed bag of emotions after reading The End. I'm terribly sad that my reread of this series is over yet I'm so glad that I revisited them and got to relive a big part of my childhood. It's such a dark and depressing series and this last book was no different. But that's why I loved this series as a kid and continue to do so as an adult. Real life isn't always sunshine and butterflies and I love how these books reflect that. I think the only happy moment for me was the demise of a certain c [...]
~4.5 stars~ I had no idea what to expect from the end of The End lol :P And honestly, I am still a little confused about some thingsI still have so many questions xD But I did just finish this book so I still need to let some things sink in before I can say much about it because right now my brain is likexD xD
A really good end to the series, although I agree with others a lot of things were missed and unanswered!
3.75* although I really enjoyed this, I'm definitely not entirely satisfied with the ending, I feel like I've finished it with more questions than I had she I started?! But I guess that very much suits this series, it's just a little (a lot) infuriating, I can't bare all this questions hanging over my head. :') I've really enjoyed reading this series, although I'm so happy to have finished it! I wish I had read it when I was younger, as I definitely think I would have enjoyed it a lot more had I [...]
Man, what the hell just happened? I know I just finished this series, but it feels like there's more to say, like it ended mid-stream, and this was Book THIRTEEN! Did he not think he had enough time to finish? Was he so set on keeping it to 13 books with 13 chapters each that he stopped throwing out red herrings about what V.F.D. was and realized at the end of Twelve, "Crap, how do I solve this?" The fact that he has a "Chapter Fourteen" on this makes me think so (as well as the seperate "book" [...]
Not completely satisfied with the ending but it did leave me mindblown! So glad I've finally finished this series.
A review of the whole seriesSooooo matewhat do I do with my time now? This is a series I never read as a child (for reasons I really can't fathom) and decided to visit now as a 27 year old adult. I guess reading is reading and I can fully, fully admit that I would have no problem reading The Berenstain Bears and the Messy Room a few more times (is this why people have kids?) Anywhoooois summer I randomly decided to check out the series at the library and became fixed on it. It is probably the mo [...]
Pa-THETIC! Absolutely pathetic. What a poor effort from the guy everybody absolutely loved! I want to go back and read the series again to find more allusions I almost certainly wouldn't have picked up the first time around, but I can't be bothered to. Now, I would've if there had been any sort of plot resolution to keep me going through to theVery bad, from a commercial point of view, as I'm certainly not going to buy the series now, am I? I felt so cheated, not knowing the end. The feeling I g [...]
A total let down.I loved the first 12 books! Witty, creative, and intelligent.There are many things about this book that dissapoint. To start off, don't expect to get answers to the plot points he brought up in the other books. Not even points from book 12 are answered. No answer to Poison Darts or the Sugar dish. No resolution to the Quagmires. Olaf's resolution is forced at best. If you like the little quirks that each of the Baudelaires had in the previous books, don't expect them here. Viole [...]
My overall feelings after my re-read of The Grim Grotto, The Penultimate Peril and The End in one sitting.- No matter what you go through, you can keep surviving, and you can rebuild.- Not everything is as it seems.- There will always be secrets; it is the way of the world, and not everything will be answered. Life is a never-ending series of overlapping and complicated stories; unfortunate and fortunate events. We have our own stories, and that's enough.- And we never have to be alone.- We can [...]
Sono combattuta, davvero combattuta. Per alcuni versi le quattro stelline se le merita tutte, ma ci sono così tante domande in sospeso che un po' mi fa rabbia. Sapevo che il finale sarebbe stato amaro e un po' sono delusa e un po' soddisfatta. È stranissimo
Reread the whole series and still lovin` it. Hope Netflix will do it justice.
I have finally reached The End of this series. Honestly… I’m just really happy to be done. I’ve kind of learned that I’m not the type of reader who enjoys a 10+ book series. That’s just a bit too long for me to stay in one world.This series was definitely a journey. Even though a distinctive number of the books could be classified as filler, I enjoyed most of them. The series finally began to diverge from the exact same plot line for each book around number 8, so everyone who told me t [...]
I feel like I want to cry after finishing this book, and this series. Indeed, this series, unknowingly, became a huge part in my life that I am finding it very hard to let go of. I have read the reviews of people complaining that the story did not answer any questions. But I disagree. This book is perfect, and I hate to leave it behind. I don't want to become just another book I've read in the pile of the books I've read, because this series is spectacular. This book is the best in the series, t [...]
I definitely would have preferred more answers. Like wtf was the sugar bowl? And, hello, romance that came out of left field.
