Publisher's Summary

Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are intelligent children. They are charming, and resourceful, and have pleasant facial features. Unfortunately, they are exceptionally unlucky.

In the first two books alone, the three youngsters encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune, a lumpy bed, a deadly serpent, a large brass reading lamp, a long knife, and a terrible odor.

In the tradition of great storytellers, from Dickens to Dahl, comes an exquisitely dark comedy that is both literary and irreverent, hilarious and deftly crafted. Never before has a tale of three likeable and unfortunate children been quite so enchanting, or quite so uproariously unhappy.

Woah

So these are great books and I love them dearly, but I have never appreciated them half so much as I do when hearing them read by Tim Curry. Curry's Olaf (or, if you like, Stephano) may well give me nightmares into my 80s. His reading of Snicket brought me to laughter and his Beaudelaire orphans very nearly brought me to tears. This, as I said, a wonderful book, but Tim Curry's reading of it makes it at least twice as good.

My favorite in the series (so far)

So far I've read through book 9 and this has been my favorite. This part of the story really engages the reader and leaves you excited to see what happens next.

Tim Currys reading is icing on the cake.

Brilliant

A wonderful, brilliantly annoying book in the Series of Unfortunate Events. Lemony Snicket weaves the reptilian creatures into the plot line and Tim Curry does a wonderful job with the narration. I recommend this Audible yet start the series from the beginning; it’ll be more fun this way.

Tim Curry

Tim Curry I must say brings this story to a fill visual enhancement. His tone and voice of the character is so incredible, it makes the read so much more realistic. besides this series being a great read, onto the next!
