Shouldn't You Be in School?

Author: Lemony Snicket 
Pages: 336 
Publisher: Egmont 
Format: Hardcover 
My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Summary (from Goodreads)Do you smell smoke? 

Young apprentice Lemony Snicket is investigating a case of arson but soon finds himself enveloped in the ever-increasing mystery that haunts the town of Stain'd-by-the-Sea. Who is setting the fires? What secrets are hidden in the Department of Education? Why are so many schoolchildren in danger? Is it all the work of the notorious villain Hangfire? How could you even ask that? What kind of education have you had? 


Maybe you should be in school? 




Lemony Snicket never fails to impress. Within the span of a few minutes - less than three pages in - I was hooked. I didn't put the book down until I'd finished a few hours later, and I can't wait to re-read it. 

Lemony Snicket is one of those rare authors whose writing will never stop captivating me. It's been more than ten years since I read my first Lemony Snicket novel (The Bad Beginning) and I'm happy to report that these books followed me all through grade school, high school, and now university. Readers of all ages will be pulled into Lemony's world, and they'll never look back.

I recommend this series - as well as Lemony Snicket's other series - to anyone looking for a great read. If you love books and mysteries and words in general, this is the series for you.
