Lemony Snicket was a boy who lived at Stain’d by the Sea with S. Theadora Markson, his chaperone. One night, Markson snuck out and Lemony followed her to Dicey’s place where she took a conductor’s uniform. She then went to the train station and got on the train, Lemony was unable to follow her because he didn’t have a ticket. Through intuition, Lemony finds a way to follow her and get on the train at a later place. On the train, he learns that there has been a murder and Markson was the murderer. Markson is then arrested. Lemony knows that cannot be true, so he sets out to prove his chaperone was framed. Lemony is eventually able to come to conclusion that Stew was the murderer and he has the bombinating beast come to life eat him. After, Lemony is accused of being at fault for the trains derailment due to the bombinating beast on the train. From there, Lemony decides to pursue a life in the Clusterous Forest away from society. This is a book series that is very popular within my class. The series is full of mystery and intrigue. I liked the story and how every chapter would leave the reader wanting to read on to find what happens next. The story is an easy read. Good book to do a book/show comparison as there is now a Netflix series out about Lemony Snicket. This book would also be a good read for AR progression.

The series is wonderful. I love the way Snicket writes and the way he perfectly presents the psyche of an intelligent, precocious 13-year-old in the middle of a terrible situation. I loved all the characters and thought the mystery(ies) was(were) wonderfully presented and "resolved." (Many things are not actually "resolved" in Snicket books.) I also thought Liam Aiken did a wonderful job reading the books, improving with the series. He was a perfect voice for Lemony Snicket. I will definitely be buying this series for my goddaughter! I believe this is age-appropriate for mature 8+ year olds (there is death and sadness) and middle-grade children. Of course, Snicket can be enjoyed by adults as well. :)
The book, , and the series as a whole, . ( )

The conclusion of the All the Wrong Questions series finds Lemony Snicket and all the other characters of the series on a train crossing the sea. There are many twists, and dark humor, and betrayals, and when the mystery is eventually solved it is more sad than valedictory in the traditional Snicket manner. A good end to a good series. Creative and fun, and a little bit sad. ( )

All the wrong questions have been asked, and some of the right ones, and now come the answers, racing on a benighted train beset by enemies and plots, our beleaguered hero has one chance to thwart a plan he doesn't understand. But first there's murder most foul and villainy most base and even if he asks the right questions and gets the right answers and defeats the villain, what will he lose?

Brilliant conclusion to a terrifically entertaining series. Exciting and melancholic at the same time, very noir, our hero is a mix of Marlow and the Continental Op, walking down mean streets and mean railway carriageways, playing dangerous games and falling for a dangerous lady. Lovely. Please let there be more. ( )
