It has been my solemn occupation to complete the history of the Baudelaire orphans, and at last I am finished. You likely have some other occupation, so if I were you I would drop this book at once, so The End does not finish you.

Bad situations stink. But it’s always horrible when something else occurs that makes the bad situation seem like no problem. In the Baudelaire’s case, floating in the middle of the ocean in an exceptionally small rowboat with their arch nemesis, Count Olaf, was what they perceived as being a bad situation. And quite literally clouding over their bad situation was an unpleasant storm resulting in a shipwreck, a coastal shelf, a missing person, some cocoanut cordial, and a young girl named Friday.

The Baudelaire orphans are back with the final installment of the Series of Unfortunate Events. Wow, talk about going out with a bang. This book was more than I expected. I was totally surprised when I began to feel bad for certain characters. I never, ever, imagined I’d feel that way about them. Lemony Snicket does an astonishing job in enticing you to continue through the chronicles of the terribly unfortunate orphans. And finished it off by satisfying my curiosity, yet managing to leave me thinking.

The End completely deserves the full five stars- hooking beginning, amazing imagery and a surprising, yet wonderful ENDing.

This reviewer ‘absolutely loved it!’
