Dear Reader,

You are presumably looking at the back of this book, or the end of The End. The end of The End is the best place to begin The End, because if you read The End from the beginning of the beginning of The End to the end of the end of The End, you will arrive at the end of the end of your rope.

This book is the last in A Series of Unfortunate Events, and even if you braved the previous twelve volumes, you probably can't stand such unpleasantries as 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 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.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket

The End was a great story that made the reader not want to put the book down. The reader really felt for the Baudelaire orphans and saw as the orphans went though their last adventures for the Series. At the the end the reader wants to know what happens to the orphans but now knows the way that Snicket writes and understands that it is up to the reader to make up what happened to the orphans next. I recommend this book to anyone that has made it though the other 12 books. This was one of the best in the series!

I really liked this book, but the part that really sticks out in my mind was the Chapter 14 at the end of the book. It was an interesting addition. I also liked the title of the book. It wasn't the alliteration like the rest of them.
All of Lemony Snicket's books are fantabulous, and I really liked the ending. It definately wasn't what I expected, but it was very fitting.
If you've read any of The Series of Unfortunate Events, you should definately read this one too.

The final book of the Series of Unfortunate Events was an amazing adventure. It brings back are favorite people Violet, Sunny, and Klaus. The story begins in a ship and ends in an island. The book gives us answers to many questions, but mostly did not answer some of the most important.
some people did not like the ambiguous ending, but i liked it. How else would the great lemony snicket end his book, but in mystery. Did you really think he was going to answer all the questions? I thought it was a great ending to a great series.

The orphans still are unlucky and misfortunate along with they don't anything about their family or the organization their parents supposedly were in.Count Olaf is still after their money and wealthbut not succeding in achieving it, in fact he is not even close. So they would reach a island and meet natives who are freindly, but odd. They say everything eventually washes up on their shores. Count Olaf wants to conquer this island and make all the native his minions. The end was strange, but other than that it was a great book. I think it should answer more of all the unanswered questions. Such as is the children's parents still alive and many more. This is most definately the best out of the whole entire series. It was my favorite. This particular book would be best for many young readers who like depth to their books and finding out what happens next. What I am trying to say is a complex book with a well developed plot.

The End brings us back into the amazing unfortunate but equally exciting lives of Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire. When we last left them in Book 12 they were leaving the roof of a building...by boat. This book begins almost directly after the previous book ends. Soon they find themselves landing on a little piece of land. Fortunately...and unfortunately for them, the island is already inhabited (much to the distress of Count Olaf who wanted to name it Olaf-Land). Soon the Baudelaires will find them launched into a series of...unfortunate events. But in The End with the tables turn?

The End was a great ending to the series and tied up most of the loose ends. But I suppose we can always imagine those. After all, a story is never over!

I didn't really like the ending kind of somewhat incomplete and confusing.
While it's great that Count Olaf died (yippee for that!) they still haven't discovered if one of their parents is alive or not.
But the book still has Lemony Snicket's wit despite some loose ends.
You will find some answers, but not all the answers.

I KNOW IT SAYS "THE END" ,BUT I HOPE DANIEL HANDLER (OR AS YOU MAY KNOW HIM: LEMONY SNICKET) MAKES A NEW BOOK THAT ANSWERS SOME OF MY QUESTIONS
The series and this book where really good!!But it left me with far to nany questions such as

what happened to the Quagmire triplets, fernald and fiona (also including captian widdershins)

what is the great unknown

who are the survivors of the hotel denoument

(this ones really important) what happened to the baudelares and baby beatrice?

I know it says The End, but i hope Mr. Handler (mr. Snicket) MAKES ANOTHER BOOK!

What a wonderful way to end the series. Besides all the people wearing white robes and being completly electronic free, the book was amazing. Full of detail and irony right down to the very end. The End is surely the way to end this series. Upset and dejected are the things i feel since the series is over but i can't agree more with anyone who did not enjoy the series. It was an action packed adventure with the orphans facing hardship after hardship. Although it was sad that the orphans did not find their parents the fact that they stayed in under the tree where their parents stayed was a wonderful suprise. Thankx for the great ride, Mr. Snicket!!

I have read all of the Series of Unfortunate Events and they have all been...unfortunate. I thought that by this book they would finally have a happy ending but I guess the book lives up to its name. The End is pretty good in the sense that you finally found out about their parents and everything clicked in place. The bad part about it was that the ending didn't leave me feeling like any real closure happened. I guess I was just expecting more than what I got.
