    "Very enjoyable!"
    What made the experience of listening to Interview with Lemony Snicket (a.k.a. Daniel Handler) the most enjoyable?

    I like the series of unfortunate event books, so it was nice to get this extra bonus.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was laughing very hard. It's free, so it's rather short, but I enjoyed this.


    Any additional comments?

    thank you audible for this very nice bonus for us listeners!!

    "Fun, informative interview"

    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.

    "Lemony Snicket"

    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.

    "Interesting interview, but poor quality recording"

    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.

    "Interesting Interview with Daniel Handler"

    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.

    "Entertaining interview with an interesting author"

    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.

    "must listen !"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Interview with Lemony Snicket (a.k.a. Daniel Handler) to be better than the print version?

    No


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    DANIEL HANDLER


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I liked his style of speach, voice and laugh. He sound very different from any character in his book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Read is SERIES!

    "Ah, that's what it is all about!"

    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.
