The Bad Beginning, A Multi-Voice Recording: A Series of Unfortunate Events #1 (Unabridged)

by Lemony Snicket

Open iTunes to Buy


Like a car alarm, bagpipe music, or a doorbell ringing in the middle of the night, hearing this all-new audio edition of The Bad Beginning will only upset you. This unique multi-voice recording brings the first book in Lemony Snicket's alarming A Series of Unfortunate Events to such terrible life that no one should really have to experience it. Unless you have an ear for such ghastly details as a tragic fire, a nefarious villain, itchy clothing, and cold porridge for breakfast, all narrated in chilly detail by the distinguished, and disturbed, Tim Curry with a team of talented readers, you would be better off listening to something else.

Lemony Snicket is one of my favorite authors. The Bad Begining is my #1 favorite book!!!!!!!!!


If you like to hunt you should get this because you can still look out at the deer, and you don't get bored.

Good book, but for the price not anymore!!

hello, hello, You are going to charge $13.95 for a book just because it has two voices. PLease, A 2 hour and 29 min book is not worth the price.
