How to Think About Weird Things: Critical Thinking for a New Age
Prior to the start of the novel, nineteen-year-old Billy Lynn , a soldier in the United States Army, was involved in a firefight on the banks of the Al-Ansakar Canal in Iraq. During the fight, Billy attempted to save his mentor, Shroom , but Shroom died at the hands of Iraqi insurgents anyway. Because the firefight was filmed by an embedded news team, Billy's platoon was renamed Bravo squad, heralded as heroes, and President Bush asked them to return home for a two-week Victory Tour, culminating at the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Day game. On Thanksgiving Day, Billy arrives in a limo to the Texas Stadium and thinks that it looks very different from the stadium he's seen on television. A group of college girls drives up alongside the limo and yells for the Bravos to put their windows down. When the soldiers do so, the girls' faces fall—they're uninterested in soldiers.

The book was later adapted into the TV series produced by Netflix as the seventh and final episode of season 3 , as well as the entire TV series. In this book, the Baudelaires and Count Olaf end up being trapped on a castaway island where its islanders attempt to create a peaceful utopia. This book is the last in A Series of Unfortunate Events, and even if you braved the previous twelve volumes, you probably can't stand such unpleasantries as a fearsome storm, a suspicious beverage, a herd of wild sheep, an enormous bird cage, and a truly haunting secret about the Baudelaire parents. It has been my solemn occupation to complete the history of the Baudelaire orphans, and at last, I am finished. The Baudelaires are forced to listen to Count Olaf brag about how he has triumphed, how successful he is, and how rich he will be with his hands almost on the Baudelaire fortune.
