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 Now he has written an account that should not be published, in four volumes that shouldn't be read.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.

I love all the books by Lemony Snicket, I just wish they would resolve. I really just want an ending where more than 50% of the loose ends are tied up...
I recommend this title to anyone who loved a series of unfortunate events, and everyone else who loves books that are both realistic and imaginative and filled with beautifully random sensory detail. The writing crosses all boundaries of age and gender,– – This may be a children's book but as a grown-up with a masters degree in English, I couldn't think of a more fulfilling, stimulating read.
