Who Could That Be At This Hour? by Lemony Snicket
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In a fading town, far from anyone he knew or trusted, a young Lemony Snicket began his apprenticeship in an organization nobody knows about. He started by asking questions that shouldn't have been on his mind. Now he has written an account that should not be published, in four volumes that shouldn't be read. This is the first volume.
The first volume in the four-part autobiographical account of his childhood, called All the Wrong Questions, will be released on Oct. 23, 2012. This will be Snicket’s first new series since the wildly popular A Series of Unfortunate Events.
My thoughts: I couldn't stop smiling. Definitely ridiculous, filled with information that may or may not be useful, a bizarre cast of characters, it's supposedly autobiographical because, of course, why wouldn't a 12 year old boy apprentice with a weird woman who is rates 52nd out of 52? Why wouldn't he climb out of a window from a train station restaurant where the couple who is tearfully bidding him goodbye and are not his parents?
If you liked Series of Unfortunate Events, you are guaranteed to like this series. It's trademark Snicket (whoever he is) and filled with All The Wrong Questions.
