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

Hey Guys!
We finally reached the last volume of A Series of Unfortunate Events. The Beaudelaire orphans’ journey was hell of a ride. Let’s see what The End has in store for them!

The Plot:
Continuing the events from The Penultimate Peril, The End begins with Violet, Klaus and Sunny shipwrecked together with Count Olaf. After a terrible storm they wash up on the shore of an island in the middle of the ocean. Will the colonists be friendly? Or will they also fall for Olaf’s schemes?

 

The Rating:
I’ve been pretty excited to finally find out what end the Beaudelaire orphans might meet. Part 12, The Penultimate Peril, did not go the way I expected, so I was ready to be surprised.
As usual, Daniel Handler aka Lemony Snicket introduced some very interesting ideas, that will give you some food for thought if you spend some time thinking about them.
However, if you expect the final installment to clear everything up, I will have to disappoint you. Actually, there’s even more mysteries introduced that will leave you confused and longing for an answer. But, believe it or not, with The End we reach a point where it doesn’t even matter. Despite not getting a final resolution, you don’t end up annoyed but still somewhat pleased. It’s not the end you hoped for but it’s the end this story needed.

The End was quite different than what I had expected, but it was still an enjoyable finish to an interesting series!
