An interview with Lemony Snicket!

The other day I read on My Favourite Books that an interview with the one and only Lemony Snicket took place some time ago on Webchats.TV so I thought I'd share this fantastic video.

Are there any Lemony Snicket fans in the house? I've read all the 13 books in A Series of Unfortunate Events and I thought they were absolutely brilliant. I admit I was disappointed with the last installment (so many unanswered questions, argh!), but overall I absolutely adored the series. I thought it was very clever and original and above all hilarious - I really enjoyed the dark humour featured in all the books. The series is a bit wacky, but still very very clever, and there are so many mysteries that you just can't stop reading. "Who/what is VFD? What's up with the sugarbowl?" and oh so many more, but sadly most remain unresolved, heh. Nonetheless, the books are a massive delight to read and even though I guess they're supposed to be MG, I recommend them to *everyone*, honestly. Just thinking about the books now really makes me want to re-read them! :)

Anyway, without further ado, here's the interview with Lemony Snicket's "representative" (aka the author himself, LS is his pen name) Daniel Handler. I really wanted to share this because I really liked it and it made me laugh so much. Plus, in case you didn't know, the author is already working on a new series, which should be out in a couple of years and I'll most definitely read it!

OK, I'll shut up now and let you enjoy the interview, which doesn't really answer any questions, but it's bound to at least make you smile or even crack you up - and that's something, eh. :)

Hi, Bookalicious Ramblings! Oh wow! Thanks for sharing this interview. I've always wondered about Lemony Snickett / Daniel Handler. I've read the first three books, which form the basis of the movie and I loved them!
