Series of Unfortunate Events #8: The Hostile Hospital CD: 08 (A Series of Unfortunate Events) Audio CD – Unabridged, 12 August 2003
From the Back Cover
This audio is the only one which describes every last detail of the Baudelaire children's miserable stay at Heimlich Hospital, which makes it one of the most dreadful audios in the world.
There are many pleasant things to listen to, but this audio contains not one of them. Within it are such gruesome details as a suspicious shopkeeper, unnecessary surgery, anesthesia, heart-shaped balloons, and some very startling news about a fire. Clearly you do not want to hear about such things.
I also shouldn't mention the interactive features of the CD, which include:
A perplexing word game • Photos from The Lemony Snicket Archives • Art from The Brett Helquist gallery
I have sworn to research and record this story as best I can, so I should know that this audio is something best left on the ground, where you undoubtedly found it.
With all due respect,
About the Author
Lemony Snicket had an unusual education which may or may not explain his ability to evade capture. He is the author of the 13 volumes in A Series of Unfortunate Events, several picture books including The Dark, and the books collectively titled All The Wrong Questions.
Tim Curry has portrayed many memorable characters, most notably the role of the scientist in the Broadway and film versions of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Arthur in the Broadway production of SPAMalot.
