    Dear Listener,

    If you are looking for a story about cheerful youngsters spending a jolly time at boarding school, look elsewhere. Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are intelligent and resourceful children, and you might expect that they would do very well at school.

    Don't.

    For the Baudelaires, school turns out to be another miserable episode in their unlucky lives. Truth be told, within the chapters that make up this dreadful story, the children will face snapping crabs, strict punishments, dripping fungus, comprehensive exams, violin recitals, S.O.R.E., and the metric system.

    It is my solemn duty to stay up all night reading my history of these three hapless youngsters into a microphone, but you may be more comfortable getting a good night's sleep. In that case, you should probably listen to something else.

    With all due respect,
    Lemony Snicket

    Kritikerstimmen

    "It's a pleasure to hear an author read his own creation. One gets to hear the story just as the creator would like it heard. Each inflection, babble of baby Sunny, elongated word, or character introduction is Snicket's own, with all the import he would like it to have. This is a listening delight." ( AudioFile)

    sound is better balanced than in last books

    I love the story and Lemony Snicket as an author but as speaker he is not able to express the different voices of his protagonists as good as Tim Curry. All voices sound mostly the same/ a bit boring. In addition to that the speaking is very unbalanced, sometimes way too loud, sometimes way too low, really hard to listen to -not in longer phases so that a regulation in volume would make sense, but within sentences. As I chose this series of books to listen in the gym (where there is background music) this is very annoying. I'm looking forward getting Tim Curry back as a speaker. In contrast to the last books read by Lemony Snicket, the sound is a little bit better balanced.

    Auch dieser Band...

    ...glänzt! Obwohl das Schema der worst case events gleich bleibt und man zunehmend mit den Boudelaires leidet, für den Hörer bleibt es mehr als unterhaltsam.

    der bisher beste Band der Serie

    Dieses Buch der Series of Unfortunate Events hat mir bisher absolut am besten gefallen. Vor allem, dass in diesem Band zum ersten Mal andere Kinder auftauchen, die noch dazu ein ähnliches Schicksal mit den Baudelaire-Orphans teilen, macht die Geschichte sehr packend. Einziger Minuspunkt ist, dass die Geschichte sehr vorhersehbar ist.
