A Series of Unfortunate Events book the twelfth, The Penultimate Peril, was released yesterday. I went nuts trying to wait for work to get out so I could go buy it. I even went to the university bookstore hoping they had it (yeah right). The publishers and Mr. Snicket had a lot of fun with this release - they didn't even reveal the book's title until yesterday. I spent the last few months on www.thenamelessnovel.com trying to solve the mystery of its name. Of course there was no chance of figuring out the title before it was released, but I got to view some illustrations and a page from the book. I finished reading the book this morning. What can I say? Apparently there's still one more book to go, so there are still a lot of questions to be answered. Hopefully the 13th book will be released next fall, and there will be some sort of resolution to the Baudelaire's tale.
