Dear Listener,

I am sorry to say that the lives of the Baudelaire orphans, Violet, Klaus and Sunny, are filled with bad luck and misery. All of the stories about these three children are unhappy and wretched, and the one you are holding may be the worst of them all.

If you haven't got the stomach for a story that includes a hurricane, hungry leeches, cold cucumber soup and a doll named Pretty Penny, then this audio will probably fill you with despair.

I also shouldn't mention the interactive features of the CD, which include:

A perplexing word game Photos from The Lemony Snicket Archives Art from The Brett Helquist gallery

I will continue to record these tragic tales for that is what I do. You should decide for yourself if you can possibly endure this miserable story.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket

The Baudelaire orphans are now under the care of Aunt Josephine, who is not a relative and fears everything from the doormat to the stove to having stray hair in her face. If you mutter under your breath at grammar errors, you will love this book as Aunt Josephine is utterly devoted to grammar and its proper use.
The book is voiced by the author, who does an excellent job, and I quickly got over my disappointment that Tim Curry, reader of the first audiobook in the Series of Unfortunate Events, did not resume his role.
It’s important to have read book #1 to have familiarity with Count Olaf. I had skipped #2 and still found this third book delightful. I continue to enjoy the author’s skill in using less common words and phrases and providing their explanation in a humorous manner so that one does not have to find a dictionary to investigate the words. Again this is a fabulous method to expand vocabulary for young readers.
