About the Author

Lemony Snicket is often despondent, mostly about his published research, which includes A Series of Unfortunate Events and The Composer Is Dead.

Due to the world-wide web of conspiracy which surrounds him, Mr. Snicket often communicates with the general public through his representative, Daniel Handler. Mr. Handler has had a relatively uneventful life, and is the author of three books for adults, The Basic Eight, Watch Your Mouth, and Adverbs, none of which are anywhere near as dreadful as Mr. Snicket's.

Reviews

Gr 4-7-Lemony Snicket's last book (HarperCollins, 2006) in this incredibly popular series leaves listeners with some answers and more questions. The tale begins where the last volume left off, with the three Baudelaire orphans trapped at sea in a boat with Count Olaf. The castaways survive a storm and end up on an island where other castaways from other storms have established a quiet life lead by a suspicious facilitator, Ishmael, who eventually forces the orphans to leave the camp. The children find the answers to many secrets, including the fact that their own parents once lived on this island. With the appearance of Kit Snicket and an encounter with Count Olaf, a new orphan joins the story. Will Count Olaf get his just rewards? Will the orphans find peace in this treacherous world? Tim Curry is a marvelous narrator, giving each orphan, villain, and innocent bystander his or her own voice. He also sings a song at the end of the recording about being shipwrecked, which is a wonderful, dark ending to The End. A must for Lemony Snicket fans.-Lisa W.
