Like handshakes or housepets, many things are preferable when not slippery. Unfortunately, in this miserable volume, I am afraid that Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire run into more than their fair share of slipperiness during their harrowing journey up, and down, a range of strange and distressing mountains.
It would be best not to mention any of the unpleasant details of this story, particularly a secret message, a swarm of snow gnats, a scheming villain, a covered casserole dish, and a surprising survivor of a terrible fire.
Unfortunately, I have dedicated my life to researching and recording the sad tale of the Baudelaire Orphans. There is no reason for you to dedicate yourself to such things, and you might instead dedicate yourself to letting this slippery audio slip from your hands into a nearby trash receptacle, or deep pit.
With all due respect,

"Characters are true to form, ridiculous and fun, and, once again, the wry telling is pitch-perfect, with plenty of the joyful wordplay and the quirky imaginative touches Snicket's legions of fans expect." (Booklist)
Tim Curry does an excellent job narrating. He pauses in all the right places and even made me laugh out loud at times. If you already love this series, the aubiobook will make you love it even more.
fantastic book as usual, but once again the final "letter to the editor" was disappointingly omitted from the audio version.
The tenth addition in this series is more complex I think than the others because the plot has many more facets to it. Their are more villains, more allies, and more mysteries.
loved Mr. Curry's performance. the fun of this series come alive with his voices and drama! let him redo the three the author read and you'll have 13 books to die for!!
