9780007133734: A Series of Unfortunate Events (1) - Book the First - The Bad Beginning: Complete & Unabridged

Unabridged film tie-in to the up-and-coming Hollywood tale of tragedy, woe and cold porridge. The incomparable Tim Curry tells the unhappy tale of three unlucky children who are plagued by a life misery and woe.

Dear Customer,
I am sorry to tell you that this CD is extremely unpleasant. It tells an unhappy tale about three unlucky children. Even though they are charming and clever, the Baudelaire siblings lead lives filled with misery and woe. One might say that they are magnets for misfortune.
On this recording alone, the three youngsters encounter a greedy and repulsive villain, itchy clothing, a disastrous fire, a plot to steal their fortune and cold porridge for breakfast.
It is my sad duty to record these unpleasant tales, but there is nothing stopping you from ignoring this tape completely and choosing something happy instead, if you prefer that sort of thing.
With all due respect, Lemony Snicket

Review:

"Written with old-fashioned flair, this fast-paced book is not for the squeamish: the Baudelaire children are truly sympathetic characters who encounter a multitude of distressing situations. Those who enjoy a little poison in their porridge will find it wicked good fun." Kirkus Reviews
