Listened to: The Carnivorous Carnival by Lemony Snicket

Listened to: The Carnivorous Carnival by Lemony Snicket.

I'm edging closer and closer to finishing the series off. I have read maybe one or two of the books, the rest have been audio versions. I don't even remember which number Carnivorous is in the Unfortunate Events series.

The books keep getting better. They are progressively darker and more dangerous.

Carnivorous one has Sunny, Klaus and Violet hiding in the trunk of the Count Olaf's car as the Count drives away from the burning Hostile Hospital. They travel to the Hinterlands where the Count visits Madame Lulu's carnival to have his fortune told. Disguising themselves as freaks, the orphans discover how Lulu has scammed the Count and find out that Lulu was once a member of the mysterious V.F.D. Lulu provides the orphans just enough key information about V.F.D. and their supposedly dead parents before she is eaten by lions. The orphans maintain their trick identities but the Count finds them out and kidnaps Sunny at the end of the novel. Oooohhh. A cliffhanger!
