Finally, the definitive – and only – book for anyone interested in learning more about the alarmingly elusive author. Here is a collection of evidence – writings, annotated photographs, mysterious diagrams, and several disorientating maps, accompanied by captions, an introduction, and an extensive index. Together, these pieces will shed light on a life that until now has been unfortunately shrouded in darkness, and will finally answer the questions on everyone’s mind: what do we really know about Lemony Snicket? And why is he so interested in the lives of the Baudelaire orphans?
Why I Bought It
I didn’t even know this existed! I celebrated a tiny bit when I found it and ordered a cheap used copy! It did take almost a month to arrive but it was worth waiting for!
I loved this! I got so excited when I saw the thirteen questions about Lemony Snicket that were being asked, and I loved it even more when I discovered that they were being answered in the typical Snicket way – cryptic and nonsensical.
The book is made up of multiple letters, newspaper clippings and diary entries that explain everything and nothing at the same time.
It did give a few of the characters some more background which I enjoyed, and it explained the relationship between the characters a lot more than the book series does.
It never tells you the exact truth. I stared at the Snicket family tree for ages trying to work out the initials!
