Publisher's Summary

Dear Listener,I hope, for your sake, that you have not chosen to listen to this recording because you are in the mood for a pleasant experience. If this is the case, I advise you to put down this audio instantaneously, because of all the audios describing the unhappy lives of the Baudelaire orphans, The Miserable Mill might be the unhappiest yet.
This recording, I'm sorry to inform you, contains such unpleasantries as a giant pincher machine, a bad casserole, a man with a cloud of smoke where his head should be, a hypnotist, a terrible accident resulting in injury, and coupons.
I have promised to record the entire history of these three poor children, but you haven't, so if you prefer stories that are more heartwarming, please feel free to make another selection.
With all due respect,
Lemony Snicket

"Snicket's tale lends itself to being read aloud, and what better person to do this than the author!" (AudioFile)

Adult voices too loud, narrative too soft

It was great but the adult voices were so loud it hurt my ears. Yet, if I turned it down I couldn't hear the main narration, since that was so quiet.

Love it, but Tim Curry's gotta come back

I love every book of Snicket's as each one is very clever, original and unique in their individualism, but Snicket's calling does not lie in voiceovers. Tim Curry brought out a deeper gravitas in Snicket's books through his performance and I feel that it has been lost some with Snicket's voiceovers. I still recommend the book to anyone though, as the writing is incomparable!
