download Textbooks The Carnivorous CarnivalAuthor Lemony Snicket –

Dear reader,The word carnivorous, which appears in the title of this book, means meateating, 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 stomachturning than even the most imbalanced mealTo avoid causing discomfort, 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 BabySadly for me, my time is filled with researching and recording the displeasing and disenchanting lives of the Baudelaire orphans But your time might be better filled with something palatable, such as eating your vegetables, or feeding them to someone elseWith all due respect,Lemony Snicket

    Okay but first off: OBLIGATORY TEARS because the Netflix S2 has finished and now we get to wait alone in the dark with only a piece of salmon for company for the rest of the show. 😭😭But I mean, obviously you can read the books and find out what happens. But ya know. I'm still here to complain. ANYWAY! This one is quite dark?! Not as creepy as the hospital, but there is a pit of lions that they're going to throw people into so. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Good quality literature. No wonder I turned out how I did, thanks Mr. Snicket, for a childhood filled with murder, arson, and hungry lions.

    Notable Moments:
    • for some reason I've forgotten 100% of this book until this reread
    • I mean I probably read it for the first time 10 years ago but whatever
    • (NOW I FEEL OLD??)
    • Madame Lulu was about as helpful as a broken piece of parsley
    • Is Esme actually a worse villain than Olaf??? Because she's actually slightly intelligent which makes her more dangerous I guess.
    • I'm still struggling with the freak who was ambidextrous as his freakness
    • mate
    • nobody likes corn anymore
    • violence and messy eating are like = bread and circus
    • i see what you did there
    • and Sunny starts to show interest in cooking !!! which is what we live for!!!

    (I will probably pause my reread until next year when S3 comes out?! But like: THIS HAS BEEN A NICE FACEPLANT DOWN MEMORY LANE. WOW MY CHILDHOOD WAS DISTURBED. 10/10)

    Once again I get the chance to say (write?) the most glorious words in the English language: This is a particularly fantastic installment in the GREATEST SERIES OF ALL TIME.

    In case you're new here or somehow able to ignore me doing the internet equivalent of nonstop screaming about this series: I LOVE THESE BOOKS SO MUCH.

    This one is, as mentioned, particularly next-level at putting all other excuses for literature to shame. It breaks from the typical format. Our lil gang grows up. There's an exploration of moral absolutism, a questioning of whether anyone is truly good or evil, and whether evil acts can be motivated by pure intentions. There's a condemnation of normalcy, one which points out (TO A MAIN AUDIENCE OF CHILDREN MAY I REMIND YOU) that no one is normal and everyone's got something freakish about them.

    Also, there are fortune-tellers and inventions and disguises and Thai food and page repetition to mock déjà vu and, as always, some of the best world-building and narration of all time.


    Bottom line: If you haven't read these books yet and don't plan to in the immediate future, clearly you don't care about me AT ALL.

    In this installment, the Baudelaires arrive at Caligari Carnival after hitching a ride in Count Olaf’s trunk. Their plan, as usual, is to seek safety from Count Olaf, but they soon discover that there’s nowhere to go, and Count Olaf will be in the vicinity for some time to come. They take a huge chance by disguising themselves as freaks in order to participate in Caligari Carnival’s freak show (Violet and Clause as a two-headed freak, and Sunny as Chabo the Wolf Baby), which lands them working right alongside Count Olaf.

    Now that the Baudelaires are in close quarters with Count Olaf and his troupe, they discover more interesting clues about V.F.D. and other more shocking facts regarding their parents. Will the childrens’ stealthy behavior pay off? Will they ever discover what happened to their parents?

    “One of the most troublesome things in life is that what you do or do not want has very little to do with what does or does not happen.”

    This one had us on edge! The children are incredibly close to danger once again, working up close with Count Olaf and his nasty accomplices. This added a lot of suspense. There were slow parts, but it didn’t take long to pick up, and we found ourselves racing to discover what would happen with the children this time around.

    “Fate is like a strange, unpopular restaurant, filled with odd waiters who bring you things you never asked for and don’t always like.”

    We appreciated the new characters in this installment. Madame Lulu is an interesting new character that ties in with a few of the other books. She’s willing to help the Baudelaires, which is rare and often ends disastrously.

    Comparable to the other books, there are many new vocabulary words introduced for children to learn in this installment including: haughtily, depict, contortionist, eavesdropping, ambidextrous, and dilemma to name a few.

    The ending had us quite shocked, and like last time, we had to move right on to the next book. Overall, we really enjoyed this one.

    The children arrive hidden in the trunk of Count Olaf's car. A new turn of events - they know where Olaf is and it's them who are in disguise.

    The good-evil, noble-villain theme expands. The children are the spies. In addition they meet and join the circus 'freaks' who they see put to the test - decent people in a hard place offered difficult choices - will they act like noble people or villains? The circus freaks are a test case, an example, perhaps an illustration of how Olaf's hench-people & perhaps Olaf himself descended by degrees into villainy.

    We are tantalized with more mysteries and more possible solutions - we discover the secret that has allowed Olaf to find the children time and again...

    And at the end the children face danger and hard choices themselves.

    Continues with the familiar humour, word games etc. Also, Sunny continues to grow, expands her vocabulary, and starts to show an interest in cooking - which becomes her 'thing' in later books.

    My daughter and I adored the entire series, but this episode is my favorite. It contains perhaps the funniest of Lemony Snicket's etymological digressions. It marks the point where the larger story begins to evolve, where the traumatized young Baudelaire orphans first turn the tables on their arch-nemesis, Count Olaf. And it's also a point where both the orphans and the story mature, evolving from a good-vs-evil fairy tale of morbid victimhood into a subtle study of moral complexity.

    It's a pity that so many people who begin this series give up after three or four volumes. But if you make it through The Carniverous Carnival, you won't want to stop.

    Unfortunate Events series follows the tragic tale of three orphans - Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire - who are investigating their parents' mysterious death. The siblings are saddled with an evil guardian named Count Olaf (portrayed by Emmy-winning actor Neil Patrick Harris), who will do whatever it takes to get his hands on the Baudelaires' inheritance.

    I loved the carnival theme this book had going, I was excited that Klaus, Violet, and Sunny dressed up in disguises to fuck up Count Olaf's shit, the mystery of V.F.D is still unsolved, one of their parents might be alive and those poor lions oh my gahhhh...


    This was me after reading that ending:

    “...The answer to nearly every question is written down someplace. It just might take a while to find.”

    In their ninth misadventure, for once, the Baudelaire orphans and not the horrible count Olaf are the in incognito ones, disguising themselves among the freaks of a Carnival. And, for once, it's count Olaf who's going to be the victim of their clever plan... or maybe not?

    I can't believe I am already almost done with this series! It really is been quite a ride! This book was different than the others and so gave a little shake to the usual development of the plot (the orphans get adopted by an actually nice person, count Olaf appears in one of his many disguises, but and the adults don't believe the children's warnings, they end up killed and the orphans are orphanized again), so I liked it even more! And the main plot going on throughout the series is slowly being relieved... I can't wait for all the pieces of the puzzle to fall back together!!!

    I liked this book a lot more that I thought although everytime I am close to finding out everything it just slips form my fingertips and I have to wait for the next book.

    Such an intriguing addition to the story, the carnival vibes were cool!
