Description

SOON TO BE A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES

Are you made fainthearted by death? Does fire unnerve you? Is a villain something that might crop up in future nightmares of yours? Are you thrilled by nefarious plots? Is cold porridge upsetting to you? Vicious threats? Hooks? Uncomfortable clothing?

It is likely that your answers will reveal A Series of Unfortunate Events to be ill-suited for your personal use. A librarian, bookseller, or acquaintance should be able to suggest books more appropriate for your fragile temperament. But to the rarest of readers we say, "Proceed, but cautiously."

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 01, 2004 – Tim Curry, whose appropriately unctuous and sometimes slimy delivery are a hallmark of the audiobook versions of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events titles, is thankfully up to his old tricks. Curry returns on the 11th installment, The Grim Grotto, to play Snicket, Count Olaf and all the gang with welcome flair. The enhanced CD features word games, photos and artwork when played on a personal computer. Curry also returns as the linchpin on a new, multivoice recording of The Bad Beginning, the first book in the series, which ties in to the feature film release of Paramount/Nickelodeon/Dreamwork's Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. .

Customer Reviews

From a use to be non-reader.

These are the best books I have ever read!!! Every time I start to read I can't stop. The book turns real and is amazing!!! I read like 120 pages a day!!

Great Books... Ah, until...

I read through these like crazy.

I couldn't stop, and every time a new one came out, I was thrilled.

HOWEVER, about the time I reached the fourth or fifth book, I started having really odd/bad dreams.

I still don't know why, but I know that when I stopped reading the series my dreams were normal again...

Weird, I know, but true. :-/

I love this book!

I always had the urge of reading the next book as soon as I would finish one. This is a great book. Easy to read and guarantee kids will love it
