    Like a car alarm, bagpipe music, or a doorbell ringing in the middle of the night, hearing this all-new audio edition of The Bad Beginning will only upset you. This unique multi-voice recording brings the first book in Lemony Snicket's alarming A Series of Unfortunate Events to such terrible life that no one should really have to experience it.

    Story

    This reading kept the attention of a very fidgety 10-year-old who "hates books", an almost 9-year-old who loves books, and a middle-aged parent for almost the entirety of what otherwise would have felt like a VERY long automobile trip. Thank you, Audible, Tim Curry and cast, and Lemony Snicket!

    (2981)

    At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    Story

    I found this memoir quite interesting, in part because I also was someone who stumbled into backpacking in my early 20's and made some stupid mistakes when first starting out. However, I was distracted throughout the entire reading by the voice of the narrator. She is a talented narrator but her voice just did not seem to fit the character of the author, who wrote this tale in the first person.
