Proposition:

Thanks to The End, Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events will one day replace C.S. Lewis's Narnia as the standard-bearer, in children's books, for retroactively realizing that "ewww, you got your Message all over my story!"

(Possibly also for "loathed endings to beloved series," judging by the reviews on Amazon.)

Discuss.
