With mysteries violently swirling around the Baudelaire orphans like smoke rising from the burning Hotel Denouement, the trio find themselves most unfortunately involved in a situation of dire proportions involving deadly mushrooms, work sheep, spiceless ceviche, and the dark past of the V.F.D. Washed up on a coastal shelf with their arch enemy, Count Olaf, the children find themselves taken in by kind islanders ruled over by a devious man name Ishmael who forces everyone to drink coconut cordial, dress like cult members, and scavenge the detritus that arrives with each storm. Will the identity of Lemony Snicket ever be discovered? Exactly who is the very mysterious Beatrice? Will the hapless but ever hopeful Baudelaire orphans ever get a break? Will Count Olaf finally be stopped? And where on earth is the sugar bowl? A 2006 New York Times Notable Book.
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,
