The actors actually perform well. This is what that Jim Carrey movie should have been.

when I was younger u began this series and never finished, then the movie ruined the whole experience. I am glad this series is in audio format as well as multiphase voice actors, it had been the best so far.
it is a good story but seems a bit to mean spirited at times. the kids are a little to "adult" and the "grown ups" were to dumb at times. I'm going to keep reading this my daughter but not a 100 % sure if even Tim curry can keep me ok with all the "sound effects" in it
This is a fun and quirky story. I read it years ago when it came out and wanted to hear the audio version. Tim Curry is excellent (as usual) and the rest of the cast was good, but the sound effects and background noise were very distracting. I prefer the later books narrated by Tim Curry alone. The whole series is wonderful, though.
yes, i definitely would! I love how they bring the story to life and there is more than one narrator!
I loved all three of the children the most! They were all so unique and different! They each had something different that i loved!
I loved it! They made the story very interesting! I couldn't make myself pause it because they made it so intriguing!
Really, I loved every part! But, if I had to choose, I would definitely pick whenever the children had a conversation together, with no one else around. They tried to encourage each other, but they always told each other the truth!
His books are amazing and I will definitely be reading (and listening!) to the rest of the series!
The full cast thing is obnoxious, especially during scenes when there is a baby crying the whole time. But the book is good. Would not recommend this audio book.
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!!
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.
