Publisher's Summary

Dear Listener,

The word "carnivorous", which appears in the title of this book, means "meat-eating", and once you have read such a bloodthirsty word, there is no reason to read any further. This carnivorous volume contains such a distressing story that consuming any of its contents would be far more stomach-turning than even the most imbalanced meal.

It would be best if I didn't mention any of the unnerving ingredients of this story, particularly a confusing map, an ambidextrous person, an unruly crowd, a wooden plank, and Chabo the Wolf Baby.

To avoid causing discomfort, your time might be better filled with something more palatable, such as eating your vegetables, or feeding them to someone else.

With all due respect,
Lemony Snicket

DONT PURCHASE THIS AUDIO BOOK

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I love the story

Who was your favorite character and why?

violet because shes inventive

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tim Curry?

ANYONE ELSE BUT HIM

What character would you cut from The Carnivorous Carnival?

The two powder face twins

Any additional comments?

I wish i purchased a hard copy of the book rather than an audio because of the narrators voice

Just okay

Some parts of the book are hard to understand. The book on the other hand is very good.

Help our friends!

Great, but despicable book. Olaf is SOOOOOOO demented he takes psychopaths to a new level. I pray they get out of this physically unscathed because mentally, well..
...we know they're screwed.
