The first new series by Lemony Snicket since his global phenomenon, A Series of Unfortunate Events. 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 began 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 Now he has written an account that should not be published, in four volumes that shouldn’t be read.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. Lemony Snicket has sold over 60 million copies worldwide and has been translated into 39 languages. His books have been made into a Hollywood movie starring Jim Carrey and in this new series, fans of his best-selling books, young and old, can dive back into the gothic darkness of his murky but humorous world.
You don’t need to be a fan of Lemony Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events” series to enjoy this new series, but it definitely helps. The “All the Wrong Questions” series has the same tragically hilarious tone and the same cryptic, confusing style, but new characters and situations. There are, every once in a while, Easter egg-ish references that will be familiar to “Unfortunate Events” readers, but this series can stand on its own. It was fun. I don’t think it’s as great as his earlier series, but it’s still worth reading if you like Snicket’s style.
