A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS #9 The Carnivorous Carnival

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Tim Curry

Children Ages 8+ • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

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.
