The perks of reading this book: First, it's really short. Second, the writing is fun to read. It's a remix of murder mystery, philosophy and almost a memoir about death. Yes, it talks about deaths a lot. A warning though. Do not pick up this book thinking the story with a fast-paced plot and shady, unlikely characters for a typical murder mystery. This book is almost like you are in a mood for one to just listen to a book full of words playing there to calm your mind and not as something which will stir up your Sherlock tricks. You will get to read some historical stories here from around thr world. There are so many quotable lines about bookworms, life lessons and about life in general. I feel this part of the writing is the highlight of the book. A weekend short read. And in the end you will end up singing the poison breakfast list. (C) AUGUST 2021

I can't say much plot wise (wouldn't want to ruin the surprise), but Snicket mentions how books feel like a conversation with an author and no more does that ever feel true than in his writing. He manages to turn a relatable messy stream of thought into such a cohesive, funny, and thought provoking story and I'm still in absolute awe of how he does it. There's something eternally comforting about reading something with a narrator just as openly messy as your own thoughts.

    4.5 When I was finally able to check my email after Hurricane Ida, I realized this book had become available to me through the library (appropriate for a Lemony Snicket book). We had to get my stepson to an airport (ours was closed for the somewhat unforeseeable future) and decided to stay in that city until our power was restored. The hotel didn’t have strong enough Wi-Fi for me to download the book to my Kindle, so for the first time I used the app on my phone. (My phone is tiny.)

The hotel didn’t have strong enough Wi-Fi for me to download the book to my Kindle, so for the first time I used the app on my phone. (My phone is tiny.) Because I had other books going as well, I’d read only a few pages of this before falling asleep. In its opening pages, Mr. Snicket (he prefers to be addressed as such until he knows you well enough) sits down to his usual morning meal and is bewildered (which in this situation means being frightened as well) by a note that says he’s had poison for breakfast. If you’ve read Snicket’s other works, you know he’s not only a writer, but a detective of sorts (he’s denied the latter in a previous book) and he sets out to discover who or what’s poisoned him. But, as he warns early on, this is not a usual book* for him, as it becomes less of a story and much more a “philosophical investigation” into death, historic recurrence, imagination, and literature. (His philosophical musings on the chicken-or-the egg are about to lead me to poaching chicken for the first time.) I’m not the first to say that a hurricane isn’t over (even for the luckiest of people) until your power is back on. Though I was luckier than many, I still had things to deal with, so it’s not surprising I didn’t get into the book’s rhythm until I was back home, reading it on a bigger screen, chuckling at its deadpan humor, enjoying how the themes coalesced. I didn’t fall asleep until after I finished it. Since I loved the ending and felt out of sorts about not giving the rest of it proper attention—it’s a perfect aftermath-(of just about anything) book—the next night I started over. No matter how bewildering life is, the essential thing is to keep reading. **** *As usual though, Snicket’s reflections on books he loves led me to one I plan on reading: The Headless Cupid by Zilpha Keatley Snyder. As a child, I loved her The Velvet Room. (I still have my copy.)

    Lemony Snicket has a very peculiar way of writing, which I used to love when reading "A Series of Unfortunate Events" while growing up, but somehow it just seems tedious nowadays. Maybe it's me? Maybe it's the fact that his style of writing is always the same? Maybe it's because quirky writing needs to be more of a surprise in the book, than having it all the time? I have no idea.

Nevertheless, for around 100 pages of ramblings, it is still fairly interesting how he jumps from one topic to the other, one story to another and manages to make most of the situations very relatable. This book resembles more of a very abstract diary, with random thoughts and it is likable enough. Lemony Snicket will always have a very special place in my heart, but I believe I might have outgrown him to a big extent.

It was okay, but it didn't hold my full attention. That being said, I really liked the style this book had. It's very funky and odd, in all the best ways. The repeated comments over and over (like the little breakfast poem) drove me insane though. Overall, this is a nice, quick read that has a lot of spunk in it. It's like peeking into someone's mind instead of reading a story. There's lots of twists, turns and oddities to read through. Two out of five stars.

    Poison For Breakfast is a compelling and singular 176-page stand-alone adventure in which protagonist Lemony Snicket finds himself searching for the culprit who seemingly laced his food with poison. Snicket begins his morning the same way every day: with a breakfast of tea with honey, a piece of toast with cheese, one sliced pear, and an egg perfectly prepared. But one morning, after finishing his meal, he finds a note on a slip of paper under his door: You had poison for breakfast. With that, o Poison For Breakfast is a compelling and singular 176-page stand-alone adventure in which protagonist Lemony Snicket finds himself searching for the culprit who seemingly laced his food with poison. Snicket begins his morning the same way every day: with a breakfast of tea with honey, a piece of toast with cheese, one sliced pear, and an egg perfectly prepared. But one morning, after finishing his meal, he finds a note on a slip of paper under his door: You had poison for breakfast. With that, one of the most famous narrators in contemporary middle-grade fiction (and chronicler of other people's mysteries) finds himself in a race against the clock to solve the mystery of his own demise. Certainly, Mr Snicket didn’t relish the dreadful task of solving it, but he had no choice. It was put in front of him, right there, on his plate. Along the way, he takes readers on a delightful journey of philosophy, literature, art, love, life, death and other bewildering subjects. Appropriate for young readers, formerly young readers and adults who are young at heart, Poison for Breakfast is a classic in the making, an entertaining but profoundly moving book. But this is Lemony Snicket, so be prepared for an investigation like no other -- one that will take readers on a bewitching journey through breakfast ingredients and philosophy, existential questions and observations about writing, death and the preparation of a good egg. Hopefully, this witty, inspiring tour-de-force won't prove fatal. An extraordinary and fascinating novel from Lemony Snicket, an author whose playful, always thoughtful and distinctive voice brings so much joy to so many. It is penned as both a love letter to readers and reading and a meditation on the vagaries of life. I’m confident that it will stir the hearts of young and old alike, both longtime fans and new readers. Highly recommended.

    I really wanted to love this book, but found it a bit repetitive. I was quite saddened once I realized the book would not be a mystery/have much of a plot at all, but would rather be composed of tangential musings on a variety of topics. It also felt somewhat predictable (about halfway through I could foresee the ending), which was disappointing because typically I have always been surprised by Lemony Snicket’s writing.

    I happened across this while browsing the indie bookstore by my apartment, and immediately bought it because a new Lemony Snicket book is too good to pass up. And I liked this one a lot, it had the same writing style as his flagship Series of Unfortunate Events, but this was more deep and philosophical. It also was a love letter to books and literature, which I really liked too.

That series was likely the source of my love of reading as a child, and instilled in me the patience needed to read an entire series. Ok for this book, i read it in one sitting because while i did want to savior it, it was a relatively fast and quick read. It felt like an entire monologue, while also full of tangents and side tracks. It was like the perfect road trip in the sense that while you arrive at your destination, it is all about the journey and stops you made along the way that really stood out to you. What I really loved is how Lemony makes so many references to books, plays and people in each chapter and rather than spending extra time in the chapter explaining - which would further take away from the plot - he keeps footnotes in the last few pages that explain more. I found it fun to flip to the end in that format. The plot itself is rather simple. Lemony eats his breakfast and sees a note that says "You've been poisoned". What follows is one of the most whimsical experiences I've been on in a book in a long time. We get to follow him around to a tea shop, a bee stand, a lake, a supermarket, a park and finally a library as we watch him try to solve how and where he was poisoned and how to possibly stop it.

    This is hard to rate for me, because I had high expectations for this one. I do have to admit that I expected something different when reading the synopsis during my preorder of the book. I did expect what many are tagging this as: A Mystery. I also expected to get the same sentiments and feelings I got when I read "A Series of Unfortunate Events" and "All The Wrong Questions".

I also expected to get the same sentiments and feelings I got when I read "A Series of Unfortunate Events" and "All The Wrong Questions". To wrap it up in a few words: I expected a funny, entertaining story. What I actually got were 150ish pages of rambles about various topics while Snicket searches for clues on who poisoned his breakfast. (view spoiler)[And there is more rambling than searching. (hide spoiler)] While doing so he mentions multiple times how important it is for a book to have a surprising element to keep the reader interested and how it can be created by withholding information. Unfortunately for me this book, even though it pretends to have it, doesn't have this surprising element at all. The solution to the mystery becomes clear rather quickly and approximately from the halfway point onwards it seems to drag on endlessly. The pace of the book is on the slower side. I also never figured out if this was meant for a younger audience or an adult audience. I didn't realiz how heavily the "All The Wrong Questions" series depended on the other characters (aside Snicket) being interesting ones, because Snicket himself isn't really all that interesting. Especially not in this book. He does provide some interesting, thought-provoking moments in all his ramblings (which was most likely the only thing I enjoyed in this book), but there are also moments he tries to be funny or witty, but it simply seems judgmental or (very) arrogant instead. All in all Snicket as a character felt very inconsistent to me personally. As if his character was all over the place & the author wanted him to be a clever, considerate and open minded character, but failed in the execution of that due to the negative character aspects he added to make the serious topics "fun to read about". One signature writing style of Snickets has always been the "x which here means y" sentences which obviously returned in this book. While I found this a funny thing in his other books which gave the books a unique flow and style, here I found it to be overused and sometimes even misplaced.

I full-heartily enjoyed reading this book, and it made me reminisce about reading his books as a child. This book is witty, playful, bewildering, and overall written in the most Lemony Snicket way of approaching situations. Two of my favorite quotes: “I can compare sadness to an automobile, because they can both run me over, and I can compare happiness to an aardvark, because they’re both unusual to see early in the morning, and I can compare the various teas for sale at Incomparable Tea to all sorts of things, which means they’re not really incomparable.” AND “Happiness, in my experience, is like a bowl of bananas, because if you pay too much attention, it gets gobbled away, but if you forget all about it, either a robber steals it or it ends up rotten mush. It can be tricky to keep one’s happiness intact, and the interference of a supermarket strikes me as someone offering a badly cracked bowl into which to store one’s happy bananas.”

I am, also, aware of the allegations made against the author of inappropriate sexual comments (of which, he has apologised for). I will put a link here to Wikipedia, if you want to know more. But I thought I would go in with an open mind. I'm in a bit of a romance reading blitz and wanted a quick, pallet cleanse before I continue with my lovey-dovey reading. I only got halfway through the second chapter. I tried, I REALLY tried, but I struggled. So, I read the first chapter and a half and, somehow, accidentally read the final chapter (don't ask me how!). I almost threw the book across the room when I saw the last chapter (it's around a page and a half), hence the gif I used above. I think, had I read the whole book, I would have felt very cheated and conned. I see what he was trying to do: a book about poison, philosophy, bewildering, with a twist at the end that will make/break people's opinions of the book. And, maybe not a story per se, but a long string of thought... If you are a fan of Lemony Snicket's writing style and A Series of Unfortunate Events, then you might like this. This might be your thing. But, no. Not for me. I might try and read it again at a later date, but... I don't think so.

    A quick but satisfying read. Lemony Snicket always concocts the perfect mixture of clever humor, darkness, and profound sadness in his books. This one was also a story about Philosophy, and boy did it make me ponder things, from life and death to how to prepare a perfect egg! I loved every second. Snicket is back, but in my world he never really left.

    Stream of consciousness type storytelling is often difficult to pull off and I just don’t think that Snicket did. I found it hard to stay engaged with what I was reading. *Disclaimer* I received an eARC from Penguin Random House Canada on NetGalley. An honest review was provided.

    5/5 💫 For those who ponder death, enjoy a tinge of literary lesson and surprise, and ultimately ponder pondering. A philosophical investigation that won’t bore you to tears but, in fact, does the exact opposite? A phrase which here means “provides exceptional wit and charming entertainment”. To be reassured that a beloved author of your childhood continues to withstand time and maintains their status within your list of personal favorites is comforting to say the least. We love Mr. Snicket! 🖤
