Great story but like this headline it ended too...

The family was loving listening to this book on our vacation but then the Audible Guy interrupted. We all blurted out, "What?!" when he announced that he hoped we enjoyed the audiobook.

No problem; I'll just get the next one. But there is a problem. It's not available in my region! Ugh! That's not even fair.

Here is where you'd see the part of my review that's actually about the book but unfortunately it isn't available in your region.

the genius I have come to expect from Snicket

I love this story. It has the same quirky sense of humor that I love so much in A Series of Unfortunate Events, with deep truths about humanity woven casually into a very interesting story with great characters.

Liam Aiken is a pleasure to listen to.

Lemony Snicket At It Again

Since the end of "A series of Unfortunate events" Lemony Snicket's readers have had many pressing questions. What is the 'Great Unknown'? Who is Lemony Snicket anyway? and what happened before the VFD schism? Many hope that these questions and more will be answered in his new Series "All the Wrong Questions".

'Who Could That Be at this Hour' is an example of Lemony Snicket's immensely eclectic mind and sense of humour. This book is set chronologically before "A Series of Unfortunate Events" and catalogues Snicket's intriguing apprenticeship to the VFD.

With engaging characters such as Moxie Mallahan, the Amateur Reporter of Stain'd-by-the-sea and S. Theodora Markson, Lemony Snicket's chaperone, this book is an interesting read or listen for upper Primary, through to teenagers as it provides a mysterious and surprising plot.

Meh storyline

Overly complicated storyline to follow...clearly not one of Lemony Snickets best work. Stick to his "Series of Unfortunate Events" and this author will truly shine.

Fun

Having read and enjoyed the 'series of unfortunate events' series by lemony snicket, i was curious about this new book and it sure didn't disappoint. The humor is the same, with ridiculously funny conversations between the mainly teenage characters, narrated from the view of a young boy... The 'definitions' of supposedly difficult words is always hilarious and also enjoyed the narrators style.
