The Miserable Mill by Lemony Snicket

The Miserable Mill by Lemony Snicket

The forth book of the Unfortunate Events series sees Violet, Klaus, and Sunny abandoned in front of a lumber mill, with used gum as the sign. They were told that they would be taken care of in the mill, but they didn't expect to be put to work! The children were expected to work like all the employees, get paid in coupons, and have only gum for lunch. While the orphans don't enjoy this, they think it's better than having Count Olaf vying for them. But are they really safe?

I enjoyed this book the most in the series. The childen were required to think outside the box to help their situation. Though really, all these books are very much the same, it's a little hard to differentiate between them all.
