  • Like the many previous books right before this, I like how this one answers a lot of questions
  • I say this because even though the setting was fairly large (a carnival in the middle of no where) the level of activity in this area was limited and so the real meat of the story I think came in two things
  • Unfortunately, and not surprising, those very people betrayed them
  • It was definitely more thrilling than some of the others but I felt it could drag at certain parts

      The Carnivorous Carnival is the ninth book of the series of unfortunate events series. It shows as the children are thrown into the world of a freak carnival as Count Olaf seeks the help of Madam Lulu so he can go in search of the Baudelaire children once more: unaware that they are right beneath his nose.

      Like the many previous books right before this, I like how this one answers a lot of questions. For instance I was really excited to finally get an


      inside look as to how Count Olaf always seemed to be able to manage to find the Baudelaire’s - from Uncle Monty to Aunt Josephine all the way to Austere Academy. The fact that Lemony snicket uses a fortunate teller really just adds a little bit of amusement to the whole situation. I think this is almost a pun: Magical and mysterious fortune teller combined with an enigma of an organization.

      One thing I did not like about the book was that it was fairly quick of a read. Unlike many of the other books which had more events that are exciting in nature and really carried the story: this one seemed to be mainly information based. I almost want to compare it to the Vile Village book. I say this because even though the setting was fairly large (a carnival in the middle of no where) the level of activity in this area was limited and so the real meat of the story I think came in two things.

      first thing that added meat to the story was the fact that there was a lot of snooping and hiding on the children’s part. Previously Count Olaf was the only one who was really wearing costumes to hide his identity, snooping through information to find secrets etc but now even the children where doing this. However I feel they did something that Count Olaf never would do: and that was care about the people they were around enough to want to help them. Unfortunately,
      and not surprising, those very people betrayed them.

      The second thing that added to the story was the level of suspense and thrill in the end due to the amount of deaths. A lot of the ending details was about people waiting bloodthirstily for someone to fall into a pit of lions. I was rather aggravated by the huge cliffhanger at the end of this one.

      It was definitely more thrilling than some of the others but I felt it could drag at certain parts.
