Book: The Miserable Mill


The fourth book in the series of unfortunate event by Lemony Snicket. This time we see the children shipped off to work in a Lumber Mill.

The miserable mill

In this book there are many new experiences from the children. First and most surprisingly was that they were made to work. In really bad conditions of course. Secondly, their guardian in this book is terrible and a wholly unlikable man. Thirdly, one of the children is used by Count Olaf in his nefarious plan. Lastly, there is a slight switcheroo in the tasks of the children. All of these in combination makes the book interesting even though this is the fourth time we see the orphans going through another painful and tragic event.

There remains many questions that I’m starting to think will never be answered until the last book. But from the hints that are dropped along the way, I’m hopeful that a story will emerge. And with that, I’m looking forward to the next book in the series, where the children head to school!
