Best-selling author Lemony Snicket (a.k.a. Daniel Handler) recently spoke with Beth Anderson, Audible's publisher, about A Series of Unfortunate Events. He talked about his experience narrating audiobooks, as well as his participation in the movie. You'll hear about his favorite authors and musicians and learn more about the Baudelaire orphans. Whether you are a die-hard fan or new to this fantastically grim and gripping series, this dire dialogue will make you marvelously miserable.

The opposite of bravery is not cowardice but conformity. --Robert Anthony Contentment is, after all, simply refined indolence. --Thomas C.
I like the series of unfortunate event books, so it was nice to get this extra bonus.
I was laughing very hard. It's free, so it's rather short, but I enjoyed this.
thank you audible for this very nice bonus for us listeners!!
This interview was interesting. I found the interviewer to be both skilled and personable, which often makes all the difference in an interview. Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket) is just as interesting as you would imagine. However, it sounds as if he is phoning into this interview and the sound quality reflects this; still worth your time.
This interview made me want to read more books by the author - even after reading all the Serious of Unfortunate Events as they were released.
I certainly learned a lot about the Lemony Snicket series that I did not know before I listened to the interview. The interviewer did an excellent job in coaxing the information out of Mr. Snicket. I did find Mr. Snicket a bit irritating, perhaps that was intentional? But I do like his writing and his stories are excellent. After all few found Hemmingway endearing, most didn’t like him, but they loved his writing, and that is what it is all about.
In this interview, Beth Anderson gets author Daniel Handler to reveal some of the secrets of his alter ego Lemony Snicket. This is a chance for fans of Snicket's series to hear a bit more about his motivations. Also, we get to hear how he squirrels out of questions he doesn't want to answer.
I loved that this interview also contained snippets of the actual audio books. I've read the books, but after hearing the performance here, I may look into downloading the audio books and listening to the story again.
Daniel Handler is very entertaining, even as himself, and even tells where the name Lemony Snicket came from. Definitely worth a listen, but as was noted in another review, the quality of his end of the phone call is slightly unfortunate.
I liked his style of speach, voice and laugh. He sound very different from any character in his book.
Read is SERIES!
NIce and informative. I thought I had heard about Lemony Snicket, but wasn't sure. This free interview gave me a nice overview of what the series was about, how it came about, and what it going to happen with it. Better than expected; thank you.
