All The Wrong Ques­tions: When Did You See Her Last?

Friday - - Leisure -

I hadn’t read any Lemony Snicket books be­fore – any of the Se­ries of Un­for­tu­nate Events books or the pre­vi­ous book in this new se­ries, All The Wrong Ques­tions, which stars a young Snicket as the main char­ac­ter. So this was a new ex­pe­ri­ence – and I liked it.

In this book set in Stain’d-by-the-Sea, Snicket and his men­tor, Theodora Mark­son, are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the mys­te­ri­ous dis­ap­pear­ance of the daugh­ter of the own­ers of Ink Inc.

Is the girl a run­away? Or was she kid­napped? Was she seen last at the gro­cery store? Or could she have stopped at the diner? Is it re­ally any of your busi­ness? Theodora quickly con­cludes that the girl has sim­ply run away. But when vis­it­ing her par­ents, Snicket smells a sub­stance that makes you drowsy and for­get­ful.

He sets off by him­self to dis­cover more, and soon must bat­tle the In­hu­mane So­ci­ety and one of its most evil vil­lains, Hang­fire.

I liked the twists and turns in this book. At times it’s also very creepy, thanks to both its black and white pic­tures and its colour­ful lan­guage. For young mys­tery-lovers, this book is a must.
