“Who Could That Be at This Hour?” (All The Wrong Questions Book One) by Lemony Snicket

who could that be at this hour?

I just finished “Who Could That Be at This Hour?” so I will review it for you.  A mysterious tale with twists and turns in the plot, Lemony becomes an apprentice in a secret organization to S. Theodora Markson.  They work to steal a statue of the mythical Bombinating Beast in Stain’d-By-The-Sea; a small town with few businesses known for its ink that was next to the sea that was sucked up-for a customer that claims it is theirs.  With a master puppeteer, Hangfire, holding captives and controlling everyone, you never know who you can trust-or why he wants that statue so badly.

What I thought about it:

“Who Could That Be at This Hour?” was definitely an interesting read.  It was my first time reading a Lemony Snicket book, but it seemed like a good book (and had a great cover and great art inside) so I checked it out at the library.  Lemony Snicket writes very well, and the story  flows fluidly with quite a bit of suspense.  I thought it was pretty cool that he decided to write the story with him as the main character, as not a lot of authors do that.  I thought the book would be full of questions and answers with no storyline, but I was downright wrong.  It had a few questions in the plot though.  So if you’re wondering “Where is that screaming coming from?” “Is it too late?” and “What happened to his parents?”, then read this book!
