So, this book was actually published in the midst of the Unfortunate series, and, while immensely entertaining, is completely useless. I hoped that it may provide a few clues (you may remember that I was quite dissatisfied with the ending of that series), but no such luck. Still, for pure entertainment and amusement, the book is delightful. I found it hilarious, if simultaneously frustrating.

So, I reviewed the first half of this series earlier, and have been plugging along through them ever since.
I wanted to like these books. I really did. The writing was great fun and the similes amazing. But… just… it was irritating. I spend thirteen books following these kids around, reading about all the just stupidly frustrating and depressing things going on in their lives, and in the end… I get nothing. No resolution. No answers. No explanations. Absolutely nothing.
And in fiction, I like resolution.
This series, overall, was 2/5. I’m glad I read it, but I will never bother reading them again.
