Who Could That be at This Hour? Summary

Who Could That be at This Hour? by Lemony Snicket

In the pages of A Series of Unfortunate Events, Lemony Snicket provided nothing but misery and despair. Now he has written an account that should not be published, in four volumes that shouldn't be read. This is the first volume of All The Wrong Questions entitled "Who Could That Be At This Hour?" But remember, you still have time to choose another international best-selling author to read. With 5 million copies of A Series of Unfortunate Events sold in the UK alone, one might consider Lemony Snicket to be one of the most successful children's authors of the past decade. We, however, are less than interested in learning how, in a fading town, far from anyone he knew or trusted, a young Lemony Snicket began his apprenticeship in an organization nobody knows about. Or how he started asking questions that shouldn't have been on his mind. In fact his miserable so-called adventure stories and the Hollywood film starring Jim Carrey that accompanied his books for children may be considered nothing more than a dreadful mistake.

Who Could That be at This Hour? Reviews

* "[With] gothic wackiness, linguistic play and literary allusions....Fans of the Series of Unfortunate Events will be in heaven picking out tidbit references to the tridecalogy, but readers who've yet to delve into that well of sadness will have no problem enjoying this weird and witty yarn."-- "Kirkus Reviews", starred review
* "Full of Snicket's trademark droll humor and maddeningly open-ended, this will have readers clamoring for volume two."-- "Publishers Weekly", starred review
"Please, it's Lemony Snicket. Enough said."-- "Booklist"
