Tim Curry's narration was spot on and the sound effects added to the listening experience. This was an enjoyable story, with interesting characters and plot line. The narrator's gloomy perspective and warnings added to the enjoyment of this predicament! Looking forward to the orphans' next adventure!!
Just a nerdy girl who's an Audict. I like coffee, Star Trek, knitting, spinning, weaving, and Warcraft. But most of all? Books.
Not wasted, but I'd have preferred spending the time finding a different version.
The story itself. The characters are fantastical and unpredictable and delightful.
Too much background.
Yes! Just... maybe edited slightly differently.
I love these books and I mean - it's Tim Curry! But all the noise in the background was REALLY off-putting.
The sound effects are really distracting and annoying. Also, I am so far finding the story to really be just depressing and unenjoyable. Maybe I need to read the book for myself before finishing it on audible with my kids, but it's not what I was expecting and the sound effects make none of us want to keep listening.
wonderfully read, awesome writing, but the background noise was unnecessary, mildly irritating, and at times made the reading hard to hear. A great performance but is go with the normal audiobook version if I had to choose again.
I just learned how to read, so I figured I'd just listen.
everything was great, except the sound effects often drowned out the reader. the effects were much louder than the story.
I'm a corporate training consultant and adjunct professor who loves to read! I'm always looking for the next big thing.
I really love this story; however, there was far, far too much background noise and voices that were supposed to enhance the experience. It had just the opposite effect and was very distracting.
My boys (7 & 8), as well as my wife and myself, were all thoroughly engaged with this Lemony Snicket tale as we were making a long road trip south for vacation.
