    Description

    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

    Commentaires

    "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)

    Tim Curry did a much much better job

    Okay, Lemony Snicket did a great job writing this series of books, but the narration stuff isn't the same story. His tone is way too flat(except the dramatization part). Tim Curry in the first episode did a fantastic job. Snicket should stick to writing, the narration is far from perfect.

    Sometimes the author isn't the best narrator

    While the author-narrator did an outstanding job voicing the villains, his other reading abilities (for the main characters and narration) do not match the professional narrators I've grown used to. As for the story, if you've read the first three books, you know what you can expect.

    Hours of peace and quiet in the car

    As a family we listened to all the Lemony Snicket books. Although it has been a few years, my children who are teens still remember these books.These books are classic. One of the best attributes is that you and your children can learn some big new words. Its great for vocabulary building. If you have a long drive your kids will sit there and listen to these books for hours on end. I guarantee it. Since you will be trapped in the car with them, you also have to like books. I enjoyed listening just as much as they did. They turn long drives into a pleasurable experience.

    Great Book, so-so narration

    Would you listen to The Austere Academy again? Why?

    Lemony Snicket is a great writer. A Series of Unfortunate Events is a great, fun series. Snicket’s narration is OK, but doesn’t compare well to Tim Curry. They should release an additional audiobook with Tim Curry for all of the Snicket narrations so people have a choice.

    What other book might you compare The Austere Academy to and why?

    The rest of the series. Lewis Carroll.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Lemony Snicket’s performances?

    Yes, but would rather have Tim Curry.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    1. Ruining Christmas December 17. 2. We're very concerned. 3. Darkening theaters December 17.

    Any additional comments?

    Please release an additional audiobook with Tim Curry for all of the Snicket narrations so people have a choice.

    Hysterically funny and mysterious to boot

    I had toyed with the idea of picking up these books on occasion at various places. After I heard the interview with Terry Gross on Fresh Air (on my 40th birthday no less), I had to give these a try. This not just kidstuff (although they are completely kid appropriate). These are so much FUN!!! My husband and I listen to them over and over and laugh our heads off. Misery loves company -- and I am hooked. If ever you need a pick-me-up, this series is the way to go.

    I loved the book

    I liked the book and how it is all the way fiction but can happen in real life now I’ve read all 5 of the books but if you haven’t you might be lost so I do recommend reading the first to last book in order once again the book was sad,happy, and exciting story

    Where's the Tim Curry version?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! BUT I came back here to buy the Tim Curry version after listening to the rest of the series. This is a big disappointment after hearing his readings!

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Lemony Snicket?

    Tim Curry. Perfection.

    Daniel is coming in like a freight train

    The series continues to be entertaining and the author is hitting his stride with the narration. I actually LOL several times during the book. I find I'm enjoying reading the books in sequential order, straight through. It keeps the myriad of plot points organized and I pick up the subtle nuances quickly. Let's move on to the next, shall we?

    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.
