Children Ages 10+ • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Lemony Snicket is letting out all the stops in this next-to-last undertaking. The Baudelaire orphans are sent to the Hotel Denouement, where they meet old pals from earlier stories and act as concierge-detectives. The hotel is run by Frank and Ernest and is arranged according to Dewey decimal classification. Narrator Tim Curry demonstrates his considerable talent delivering great puns, wordplay, singing, and the best villainous cackle anywhere. There are even more word definitions than usual, and hearing the hotel clock gong "WRONG" on the hour, as if on cue, is hilarious. Snicket and Curry offer laughs and an unusual learning tool that is irresistible to listeners of all ages.
