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!
