“Who Could That Be at This Hour: All the Wrong Questions” by Lemony Snicket is the first book in a new 'Lemony Snicket series'. The book I am reviewing is an audio book. This tale is told from the point of view of thirteen year old Lemony Snicket. Our tale begins with Lemony heading to a clandestine meeting with his new “mentor” who is waiting for him in her Roadster. The two were hired to find a missing statue, a very ugly statue that looks like an ugly sea horse. Apprentice Snicket is very intelligent. I can’t say as much for his mentor. Lemony finds the statue only to have it stolen again. He finds it again and it is stolen again, and it goes on and on.
I thoroughly enjoyed the way Lemony defines words throughout the plot. In this book we meet a younger and more positive Lemony than in previous books. The secondary characters are well done; my favorite were the boys driving the taxi. Lemony’s mentor, Theodora, is not the sharpest tack in the box. One would steer and the other operated the gas and brake. The two police officers were funny too. This book is like an onion as it has layer upon layer of words, jokes and clues. This is a very enjoyable book. However, the ending left me frustrated; it set the scene for the next installment but I wanted answers to more of my questions. All in all this is a very nice read.
