An in studio interview would have been better

Daniel Handler's audio was done over the phone which made it harder to listen to This interview was interesting but I didn't realise it was done before the 12th and 13th book had been released

Very enjoyable!

What made the experience of listening to Interview with Lemony Snicket (a.k.a. Daniel Handler) the most enjoyable?

I like the series of unfortunate event books, so it was nice to get this extra bonus.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was laughing very hard. It's free, so it's rather short, but I enjoyed this.

Any additional comments?

thank you audible for this very nice bonus for us listeners!!

Great bit of back story

Wonderful little teaser from the author. You get to learn how the lemony snickett name came about, a bit about the eye, the story setting and more. A quick enjoyable listen.

Fun, informative interview

This interview made me want to read more books by the author - even after reading all the Serious of Unfortunate Events as they were released.

Lemony Snicket

I certainly learned a lot about the Lemony Snicket series that I did not know before I listened to the interview. The interviewer did an excellent job in coaxing the information out of Mr. Snicket. I did find Mr. Snicket a bit irritating, perhaps that was intentional? But I do like his writing and his stories are excellent. After all few found Hemmingway endearing, most didn’t like him, but they loved his writing, and that is what it is all about.

Interesting interview, but poor quality recording

This interview was interesting. I found the interviewer to be both skilled and personable, which often makes all the difference in an interview. Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket) is just as interesting as you would imagine. However, it sounds as if he is phoning into this interview and the sound quality reflects this; still worth your time.

If your a fan of TSOUE listen to this interview

This interview is all you could expect in a conversation with such great author as Lemony Snicket : funny, insightful and cryptic.

Interesting Interview with Daniel Handler

In this interview, Beth Anderson gets author Daniel Handler to reveal some of the secrets of his alter ego Lemony Snicket. This is a chance for fans of Snicket's series to hear a bit more about his motivations. Also, we get to hear how he squirrels out of questions he doesn't want to answer.

Entertaining interview with an interesting author

I loved that this interview also contained snippets of the actual audio books. I've read the books, but after hearing the performance here, I may look into downloading the audio books and listening to the story again.

Daniel Handler is very entertaining, even as himself, and even tells where the name Lemony Snicket came from. Definitely worth a listen, but as was noted in another review, the quality of his end of the phone call is slightly unfortunate.
