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 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

Quotes & Awards

  • “These stories require a hefty suspension of belief on occasion, but that’s part of what makes them so much fun.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “An interesting mix of Gothic suspense and desolation, didactic lessons, and the age-old conflict between good and evil…Snicket’s narration is surprisingly good; his narrator voice has just the right neutral tone, rising and falling in pitch with each plot twist.”


  • “Bold narration, dark humor, exaggerated emotions and dialogue, humorously stereotypical characters…And a few harrowing escapes make up the giddy, preposterous plot, full of hurricanes and leeches, a peg-legged pirate, and a place called Curdled Cave. Children and fortunate adults will relish the good-natured wordplay…A darkly humorous, look-out-for-the-next-one novel.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A USA Today Bestseller
