Review:
The ninth book in this popular series may have provided the most fodder for Tim Curry's evil characterizations and eerie sounds. The Baudelaire orphans end up at the Caligari Carnival, disguised as freaks. In their never-ending quest to outsmart the horrible Dr. Olaf, the children meet some strange characters, escape from an angry mob and from ravenous lions. The action is non-stop, except for the witty asides, and the audio version is clearly up to the level of suspense required by this installment.
