Snicket, Lemony. The end [#13]

Snicket, Lemony. The end [A series of unfortunate events #13]. Harper Collins, 2006 [0-06-441016-1/978-0-06-441016-8]
The series finally comes to an end with a book that ties a lot of the loose ends together. It starts with the orphans and Count Olaf stranded at sea in a boat. They end up on an island with a group of castaways with many strange customs. Their leader is Ishmael (who keeps saying "Call me Ish" - an interesting twist on the opening line of Moby Dick.) I don't want to ruin the book so I will not say much more other than in this 324 page book, a lot of questions are answered and at least one major character dies. This series has gotten tiring lately and I am glad it ended in a satisfying way.
