The End (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Book 13)
By Lemony Snicket
Reviewed by Emily P., BCCHS student
All books have their good parts and their bad parts. “The End” by Lemony Snicket has them too. The bad points were the flashbacks. They confused you unless you read all the other twelve books. I wouldn’t recommend it unless you read them. Most of the flashbacks are from the book before. Like when they kill one of their friends. Unless you read book five you won’t know what importance that person has.
The good points are how intense it is. It kept you reading. Like the author said, “Every time a question is answered another one is asked”, which is exactly what kept me reading. Every time you put a piece into the puzzle you would have to figure out where the other one went. It was a real page turner.
This 324 page book with its 13 page Epilogue is really good. But you have to read the first twelve books first. Because some of the characters they mention are from books before. And the most important part of the book revolves around an organization named the V.F.D. which is explained in one of the previous books. I would recommend this to anyone who can play catch up fast. Once you understand the language used you will understand the book. Most of the words in the book that are hard to understand the author defines for you. Over all this is a very good book. And has a lot of adventure and mystery.
