My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Just finished the second installment in the All the Wrong Questions series by Lemony Snicket. I absolutely enjoyed it! Snicket has a way of weaving words into a weird and twisted, yet colorful and wonderful way. I can't help but enjoy reading his work and there are mountains of great quotes in this book, "When Did You See Her Last?". One of my favorites is "a library tends to look like the problem you're using it to solve . . .[Here] the books and shelves seemed to be in the middle of an argument nobody was winning."
This time, Snicket (the character) is trying to solve another mystery without the help of his chaperone or the police - they're all busy with other things. He reunites for some of his associates from the first book to solve the case of a missing chemist. Moxie, Pip and Squeak, and even Ellington Feint show up to assist Lemony with the task. He also creates some new associates including Jake Hix, a short order cook who has some kind of connection with the missing chemist. Will Lemony ask the right questions to figure out the connection? Will he ask the right questions to find the missing chemist? What IS going on with Lemony Snicker's sister? Does he get the message, find the formula, or figure out what's for breakfast? Well, if you've read the first book you know he has a problem. It's asking all the wrong questions.
Highly recommended, but read the series in order.
