I'm not the only one who cried their eyes out at the end of THE END, right?? 😅 This is the only one I cried at ~ I actually had to put the book down for a few minutes; I get affected by books ~ and I think it's because it was the last book. The other books I didn't get as affected by, I think because in all of the "unfortunate events" there were details that allowed the Baudelaires to have SOMETHING fortunate, however big or small it may be. Also, with the other twelve books, you knew there was always going to be another story after the next one. With THE END, however, it is exactly, simply that: the end. There is no more story of the Baudelaires and what they face. It is all left up to the reader to imagine, and that, I think, is part of the ~ forgive the cliche word ~ magic of the series, is that the author lets the audience envision for themselves certain aspects of the story. Sorry for the sort of tangent I went off on, but to get back on track a bit, THIS particular book affected ME the most in that way. So, anyone else like me?

Me! Even Count Olaf's death affected me. TE affects me to this day. Something about me definitely changed after I read that book. I don't know if I changed for better or for worse. (That's a lie, I know, it was for the worse.)
