Lemony Snicket #13 ("THE END") came out yesterday, and I read it yesterday. I love it. It is beautiful. It has a lot in common with "The Dark Tower" and "His Dark Materials" as well as allusions to many classical works of fiction, including THE BIBLE. I've been talking about "mouthfeel" recently (for example, Mint Mentos have the best mouthfeel of any candy, they have a great crunch followed by a soothing chew) and Lemony Snicket has the best "mouthfeel" of any book -- it's very pleasing to my brain.
