Description

Dear Reader,

If you have just picked up this audio, then it is not too late to put it back down. Like the previous books in A Series of Unfortunate Events, there is nothing to be found in these pages but misery, despair, and discomfort, and you still have time to choose something else to read.

Within the chapters of this story, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire encounter a darkened staircase, a red herring, some friends in a dire situation, three mysterious initials, a liar with an evil scheme, a secret passageway, and parsley soda.

I have sworn to write down these tales of the Baudelaire orphans so the general public will know each terrible thing that has happened to them, but if you decide to read something else instead, you will save yourself from a heapful of horror and woe.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket

About the author

    This one was actually pretty good. The author has hit his stride with the writing style, the cross-book plot is sidling into view, and the characters actually have some agency, all in the same book.

    While I loved this series as a whole, this particular title didn't quite meet the bar. It is difficult to recall exactly what threw me about this book so many years after having read it, but I'm guessing it might have something to do with the character Esme, who strikes me as too over-the-top, even in a series of books with highly unusual characterizations.
  • (3/5)
    This book seems a lot slower paced than others in the series, and nothing new really happens, but I continue to love the wordplay in this series, which is as witty as ever in this book.

    Trouble in paradise.

    Another winner from Mr. Snicket. I even learned a new word "” ersatz! How I escaped 6th grade vocabulary without that gem, I'll never know.P.S. I'm extremely glad that Tim Curry is back reading these books. He adds so much to it.

    A-list titles like this one make my Scribd subscription well worth the price. I wish I read more (properly read, I mean) but I often cannot as easily as I can listen. Now that audio is unlimited, I'm really living for this.
