9780060296407: The Carnivorous Carnival (A Series of Unfortunate Events, Book 9)

Everybody loves a carnival! Who can fail to delight in the colorful people, the unworldly spectacle, the fabulous freaks? A carnival is a place for good family fun, as long as one has a family, that is. For the Baudelaire orphans, their time at a carnival turns out to be yet another episode in a now unbearable series of unfortunate events. In fact, in this appalling ninth installment in Lemony Snicket's serial, the siblings must confront a terrible lie, an ambidextrous person, a caravan, and Chabo the wolf baby.

About the Author:

Lemony Snicket grew up near the sea and currently lives beneath it. To his horror and dismay, he has no wife or children, only enemies, associates, and the occasional loyal manservant. His trial has been delayed, so he is free to continue researching and recording the tragic tales of the Baudelaire orphans for HarperCollins.

From AudioFile:

In this ninth adventure of the Baudelaire orphans, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny become "freaks" in a carnival in their continuing efforts to avoid the villainous Count Olaf. Full of the usual "definitions," interesting but often irreverent explanations of common and uncommon activities, Snicket's oeuvre offers drama, connections to previous books, and literary allusions to tempt the older reader. All of this is delivered in Tim Curry's consistently excellent voice. He breathes evil into Count Olaf and his cohorts and becomes the foreign Madame Lulu. After creating distinct individualized voices for each character, he creates a new and different voice for many of those same characters as disguises go on and come off. Curry is a master of dry, ironic tones that add an additional undercurrent of suspense, keeping the listener off-balance throughout. W.L.S.
