The Miserable Mill, by Lemony Snicket

More unfortunateness! How distressing.

So in this, Book the Fourth, Mr. Poe seems to have run out of handy relatives to foist the children on, and so they are sent off to live at a lumber mill. Only, when they show up at the mill they quickly find out that they are meant to work at the mill, and eat sticks of gum for lunch, and generally have an unpleasant time. What’s worse is that a shady optometrist has her practice right outside of the mill, and her building is shaped just like the tattoo on Count Olaf’s ankle! Oh noes!

One thing I really liked about this book, and don’t read this if you haven’t read the book yet because it won’t be as shocking, is that the character that you totally think is going to be Count Olaf is not Count Olaf at all! In a very predictable series like this, that little twist is important for not making me throw books around.
