Dear Listener,

Like handshakes or housepets, many things are preferable when not slippery. Unfortunately, in this miserable volume, I am afraid that Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire run into more than their fair share of slipperiness during their harrowing journey up, and down, a range of strange and distressing mountains.

It would be best not to mention any of the unpleasant details of this story, particularly a secret message, a swarm of snow gnats, a scheming villain, a covered casserole dish, and a surprising survivor of a terrible fire.

Unfortunately, I have dedicated my life to researching and recording the sad tale of the Baudelaire Orphans. There is no reason for you to dedicate yourself to such things, and you might instead dedicate yourself to letting this slippery audio slip from your hands into a nearby trash receptacle, or deep pit.

With all due respect,
Lemony Snicket

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 2/13/2014

    " This series had really stagnated for me and I debated about quitting it for a while. The books all seemed to just tell the same story over and over again and it became monotonous. Finally though, with this installment, the overarching story moved to the forefront and you start to find out the reasoning for all of these unfortunate events. Thankfully, this book reinvested me in the story and I think I will be able to finish off the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 1/10/2014

    " This one was not as good as the others. He seems to get off topic a lot. Here's to hoping the next one is better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pete | 11/15/2013

    " Good novel in general. Added to the mysteries surrounding the Baudelaire and Quagmire family while partially explaining the history behind the VFD. Should be interesting to see where the story takes us next. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linh Huynh | 11/11/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Theemilyray | 8/21/2013

    " I enjoy the dry humor and wit, but the author's plea to stop reading is getting tiresome as are the long tangents and explanations of simple words. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denesia | 3/6/2013

    " When I saw the cover, which is Sunny on top of the ever slippery slope, I though to myself, "Oh crap, they gonna get it good this time." But as always they're just to clever for Count Olaf's dastardly plans. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kareena | 11/22/2012

    " I loved this book almost as much as the last ones. Most book series get worse the more they go on but this one just gets better. The plot is in depth and exciting. A great read for anyone who likes depressing things. "

    " I liked this one a little better than the others because a few things actually get solved. Of course as is always the case with these books, there were also several more mysteries introduced. I'm getting closer to the end though...I think there are 13, and this was #10. "
