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

What the critics say

This is Great

The audio book helps me "read" when I am busy. For example, when I am taking a walk or in the car I can listen to the book and I don't have to read.

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.

Just okay

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