The End has arrived. Find out all the miserable details on the 13th book in Lemonys Snickets A Series Of Unfortunate Events! Check out reviews of the The End, The Beatrice Letters and other books for kids and teens.

Author: Lemony Snicket (A.K.A. Daniel Handler)

The End has arrived for the Baudelaire orphans and Lemony Snicket reveals some secrets behind his mysterious relationship with Beatrice. Find out the miserable details on Lemony Snicket's latest books right here.

The End

When we last left Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire at the end of The Penultimate Peril, they were in the middle of the ocean on a dodgy boat with the evil buffoon known as Count Olaf. In The End, the 13th and final book in A Series Of Unfortunate Events, the Baudelaires and their repugnant sailing companion arrive on a long forgotten island, where they meet a tribe of castaways, who all wear white robes, drink coconut cordial all day and generally lead very simple lives. But the Island and it's charasmatic leader, Ishmael, also hold the answers to many of the Baudelaire's questions about the V.F.D., their dead parents and Lemony Snicket himself. While the Baudelaires are busy discovering their new home, Count Olaf has a plan to destroy the island with a poisonous fungus and finally put his dirty hands on the Baudelaire fortune.


The Bottom Line

The End is fittingingly the darkest and one of the most entertaining books in A Series Of Unfortunate Events. Two characters die and the Baudelaires are forced to make some very tough decisions that require the use of both navigational and moral compasses. Like all the books in this miserable series, Violet, Klaus and Sonny learn that life rarely turns out how you want it to and adults will usually disappoint you much more than other kids will. But they also learn that the unfortunate events of life also give you the guts and strength to keep going and a chance to discover your true talents.


The End Rating:4


The Beatrice Letters

Who is this Beatrice, whom Lemony Snicket keeps referring to in A Series Of Unfortunate Events? Is she a lost love, some girl Snicket kept stalking or does she hold deep secrets about the Baudelaire's catastrophic lives? The answers to these questions may become clearer, but probably more confusing, in The Beatrice Letters. This book contains an artistic portfolio of letters between Lemony Snicket and Beatrice, as well as a fold out poster and punch out letters that can be removed and arranged to reveal an important secret message. As Lemony Snicket says on the book's back cover, "Only for readers deeply interested in the Baudelaire case. How I pity those readers."


The Bottom Line

The Beatrice Letters is an interesting addition to A Series Of Unfortunate Events. If you haven't read most of the other books, The Beatrice Letters will seem a bit jumbled and confusing. But for serious fans of the series, the letters contain many clues to the identity of Beatrice and the future of the Baudelaires and are a must-have addition to your Snicket library.


The Beatrice Letters Rating:5

I found the greatest riddle ever (credits to Ted-Ed), and I want to see if anyone can solve it without looking up the answer. THE RIDDLE OF THE ALIEN OVERLORDS. You and your team have crashed-landed on an ancient planet. The only way off is to appease its three alien overlords, TEE, EFF, and ARR, by giving them the correct artifacts. Unfortunately, you don't know who is who. From an inscription, you learn that you may ask three yes or no questions, each addresses to any one lord. Tee's answers are always true. Eff's answers are always false.  And Arr's answers are random. But, there's a problem. You've deciphered the language enough to ask any question, but you don't know which of the two words 'ozo' and 'ulu' means yes, and which means no. How can you still figure out which alien is which?

Fear: The Emotion of Death   You can't see me, But I'm there. I'm in your tears, I'm everywhere. I stalk you in your shadow, So stealthy and no slack. I'm made of dark matter, You better watch your back. You can hear me, I'm your beating heart. Inside is emptiness, Tearing you apart. You shiver and shake, At the sound of my name. I engulf you, drown you, Surround you with shame.   I've seen destruction, More than anyone. I'm darker than, The world with no sun. The agony arises, There's so much red. Most of it coming, From the dead. I become your shadow, I'm a terrible sight. And when you see me, You're frozen with fright. I'll grab you by your neck, You'll be thrashing around. You're crying, shrieking, Until there's no sound.   I feel so sad, So empty, so. . . Alone. So you'll feel the same, You'll be on your own. And as long as you are with me, At the point of no return. You will go crazy. You'll crash and burn.   Then you understand, With your slowing of breath. That I am Fear, The Emotion of Death.

[Warning: Boring]     It all started on one night where I was doing a quiz on Playbuzz. They were fun, but my mom thought they were inappropriate. Searching the web, she found this site and saw it had quizzes on it. They weren't that fun, honestly. And this site? It was kidzworld. I forced her to let me make an account, and we did. No status. No bio. No mood. No picture. I swore to not go in chatroom or chat with people, because apparently they could be an old man in a basement. I nodded in agreement, saying that she could trust me. Of course, I did some quizzes and went off. That night, we went to bed of course. Now major time skip.    It's, let's say, three nights later. About midnight, and my iPod is next to me. I decided to go and check out "kids world". Clicking into "login", I guessed my password since I really forgot it. Score! Got it right. Anyways, I look around. Forums. Quizzes. Games. And then something spotted my eye.  Chatroom.  Clicking on it, I typed in these exact words.  "Hello?" And that's how my journey started. A few days later, maybe a week, I was introduced to the "boards". Clicking on it, I immediately saw the Roleplay section. Unknowing what it was, I created "Lemini The Witch" and got into an argument with someone who I will not name((*Cough* Gpc78 )). Anyways, I deleted the post. My first Roleplay I made was Crystal Heights. Noobish, stupid, horrible. But surprisingly, people joined. This is where my soon-to-be-best- friend, Ivy, entered my virtual life. And my other best friends. first message: "Are you going to post? We're waiting for you two lovebirds! ;)". Conversation continued. And continued. Our bond grew and grew, until we had reached 100 pages of private messages. 100. Pages. I couldn't believe it at first. 100 pages of messages with my soon-to-be-best-friend. As most of you know, a few months ago, I created several hundred opportunities for advanced roleplayers who were not acknowledged to go through the gates of Roleplaying Heaven. Including me. I helped them by creating the Top Ten Roleplayers, and "accidently" tagging every single advanced Roleplayer. Even Musicgenius showed up. This is a process in the soon to be made   "Roleplaying Council", which I am a part of. During this, me and Ivy were nearing 300 pages of private messages. Crystal Heights was over, but my life was going uphill, closer to opportunity. Even in real life, my hopes were flying closer to the clouds. A few months after this, my faith in the Lord started to fade. I am 10, I started to realize the true meaning of the Bible and what it's message was. I was stuck in the middle of what seemed like a tornado, being swept over to one side, but then jerked back to the other, while being hurt in the progress. I was tearing myself apart. That's went the tornado stopped. It was just rain. I was closer to finding out my true religion. And that was atheism. I felt like I had to have a religion, like something had to have created the universe. My heart was leaning towards Christianity, but my mind was going to atheism. Go with your mind, not your heart, was my instinct. Me and Ivy were nearing 500 pages of private messages. Little did we know that I would be deleting my account and coming back as Ruby Phoenix. As the days passed, my hatred for my user grew. I finally decided to message Jordan that "Please delete my account". I don't know if it was a good thing or bad mistake I did that, but it's too late now. After this,  I felt like my roleplaying creativity was fading away. My titles weren't original like my old ones. I had changed a lot.  And I mean a lot.  On Animal Jam, I was afraid of deleting a buddy. Now I do it without hesitation. I don't cry as much. Like a shell has grown around my emotions. Thanks to the internet, I've grown tougher.  A few months later, my days were, and are, gloomier. I was, and still am, always stressed about tomorrow. If I have too much work. If I can't do things right. If I mess up. If I do anything wrong. I am confused. Why am I here? Where do we go after we die? Why didn't I just continue to not exist? What is my purpose? What's my religion? So many questions for a 10 year old in my fizzing, overloading mind.    I just wanted to share this, just to.
