Book Description

The second in the highly anticipated new series by Lemony Snicket, the enigmatic author of the bestselling A Series of Unfortunate Events.

In the fading town of Stain’d-by-the-Sea, young apprentice Lemony Snicket has a new case to solve when he and his chaperone are hired to find a missing girl.

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?

These are all the wrong questions.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Plodding plot 12 Nov. 2013
    By Sam Quixote TOP 500 REVIEWER
    Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
    The adventures of young Lemony Snicket continues in the second All the Wrong Questions book with When Did You See Her Last?, a mystery where a young girl called Cleo Knight appears to have disappeared under suspicious circumstances. Like the first book, Snicket remains in Stain'd-by-the-Sea, the landlocked former prosperous town whose fortune derived from seas of ink now dried up, with his master, S. Theodora Markson (the S. remains a secret). But the game is afoot and Snicket is on the trail!

    I'd never read a Lemony Snicket novel until the first All The Wrong Questions book and quite liked it's barmy characters, eccentric narrator, and crackling wit - that the plot flew about like a Dr Seuss story and featured the amazing art of Seth was the icing on the cake (actually Seth's art was the selling point). So it's disappointing to say that the second book didn't live up to my hopes of an equally entertaining read.

    The story starts well as Snicket investigates Cleo's disappearance, the oddball characters interact brilliantly, and the pacing is perfect - and then the book gets bogged down with a number of slow, uninteresting scenes, a lot of middle where middling things happen, and then we're back to the plot where the mystery is revealed (and it's not much of a reveal - we know the bad guy is Hangfire already, so guess who's behind the kidnapping? Xactly).

    Daniel Handler can write excellent dialogue - "Boredom is not black licorice, Snicket. There's no reason to share it with me" (p.119) - but there are too many moments where it feels he's just marking time, filling up space, or else just plain spinning his wheels. I realise this is a kids' book so I won't judge it so harshly though I felt even kids' attention would be tried with this rather plodding book.

    4.0 out of 5 stars "Is It Any Good?" Is the Wrong Question 22 Mar. 2015
    I truly admire the fact that Lemony Snicket/Daniel Handler seems willing to soldier on with his own style, at his own speed, for his own purposes without regard to the conventions of children's lit or the lack of precedent for his approach. That said, it seems to me that sometimes his books, especially the later "Series of Unfortunate Events" books, can be repetitive or just empty and clever for the sake of cleverness.

    In this series, (this is the second book in the series, although care is taken to make it practical to read this one without necessarily being familiar with the first one), Snicket has more to work with and has a grander design. The result is accordingly deeper, wiser, more inventive and more rewarding. What you end up reading is a sort of kid noir magical realism. You have a deadpan, world weary, gimlet eyed 13 year old narrator with a dark sense of humor and a seen-it-all vibe. But, this isn't your typical middle or high school noir in which each school kid plays a younger version of an established noir type, (cheerleader as femme fatale, jock as a goon, isolated nerdy guy as criminal mastermind, and so on). Rather, Snicket sets his deadpan just-the-facts-ma'am hero in an odd, illogical and twisted world filled with fantastical features.

    The effect is a surreal yet restrained tale in which the prosaic and exceptional swirl around to create an unstable world. Sometimes this can be upsetting to adult readers, who expect a cute fun story from "Lemony Snicket". But while they are surprised by the unsettled and contrary Snicket world, kids take to it. Maybe it's because kid readers don't have settled expectations or aren't committed to conventional approaches and so respond well to the freedom of a Snicket book.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyably bizarre 23 Dec. 2013
    By BookWorm TOP 500 REVIEWER
    The second of Lemony's Snicket's prequel series to `A Series of Unfortunate Events' is full of the same quirky brilliance as its predecessors. It leads on from `Who Can That Be At This Hour?' and the two should definitely be read in order. In fact, you might want to re-read the first book before this one, as I found I couldn't remember details from the previous book well enough. The plot makes very little sense - but readers have always happily abandoned their sense of disbelief and accepted the rules of Snicket's strange universe at the start of every book.

    The thing that really stands out in this book, as in the first, is the sheer beauty and quality of the writing. Some of his turns of phrase are as lovely as anything you'll find in an adult literary novel. I can't think of any other example of modern so called `kidult' literature that is genuinely equally appealing to both children and grown-up readers, but for different reasons. If anything, these books are a bit more `grown up' than the Series of Unfortunate Events, but would still be good reading for children of about 8 upwards.

    Fans of the series who are still hoping for answers to some of the great unsolved mysteries of Snicket's world won't be finding them here - and I doubt they ever will. Part of the charm of these books is that we all know really that there won't be any answers, and that there probably aren't any to give. But I don't think it matters. I used to live in hope that the secrets of `VFD' would be revealed at the end of the original series, but now I think that giving an explanation would just ruin the magic. No description will ever be as weird and wonderful as what we might imagine.
