Like a car alarm, bagpipe music, or a doorbell ringing in the middle of the night, hearing this all-new audio edition of The Bad Beginning will only upset you. This unique multi-voice recording brings the first book in Lemony Snicket's alarming A Series of Unfortunate Events to such terrible life that no one should really have to experience it.

Apparently, it's going to be a Netflix show sometime in the near future! That's exciting. Anyway, i real...
And it's charming: funny, cute, clever, although it really is a series of unfortunate events! It doesn't shy away from this fact, nor does it shy away from the children using their wiles to escape from any perilous situations. The fact that each child has their own strengths, and that they ar...
