I am a working mom who loves to squeeze in listening to books while walking, doing chores or commuting.
Fun, light read.
The heroine, Violet, is certainly a hero to root for! I think children would enjoy this audio.
The drama and music were so professionally done and I doubt that I would have enjoyed a flat performance with one narrator.
Outstanding. Great cast performance, music, sound effects, etc. A must own. Now off to see the movie again and listen to the next in the series.
I love Lemony Snicket and his books. This one is a very dark tale but he does warn you! Teachers should preview this book before letting students read it because of the questionable content.
As for the production, I realize I seem to be the only one but I found the music and sound effects very distracting.
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!
Avid reader and foodie. I read mostly fiction but thanks to my awesome book club I am branching out and finding some great books!
YES! It was so brilliant- the writing is great and the performances just made it that much better.
Listening to this book was a real treat. I laughed, I sighed- it was great. Even my husband, who is not an audiobook listener, came in to the kitchen one night as I listened to it and was prepping dinner, and even he became enthralled. I would highly recommend to anyone.
Just yuck, the book, and all the events in it totally creeped me out. However my 11 year old son loves these books
Tim Curry is spectacular, I didn't love the full cast method in this instance, I think it would have been better with just Tim. Count Olaf actually had a very nice soothing voice, which I thought was miscast, I would have preferred for him to sound much more treacherous!
If you wanna know what happens to these poor kids...
I know this is an incredibly popular book series, I just don't understand why... I love listening to children's books with my 9 & 11 year old, but I can't think of one moment I enjoyed in this book. Disgusted by the evil adults in it, and frustrated by the others that refuse to listen to the children.
I believe that the audio book adds something that cannot be in the print version. I enjoyed listening to the narration so much that I finished it in one sitting.
No I haven't, but I would like to now!
Yes, I did read it all in one sitting!
Yes! Enjoyed the storyline and the character voices were great!
The flow of the storyline. Easy to follow.
Avid reader turned listener.
Read this one to keep up with my students. I really liked the multi-cast reading of this book and wish others in the series were similar. This would be a great road trip option for the 7-11 age group and I love how the author uses big words and defines them for the kids. Would recommend!
