The book certainly delivers what the title promises. The Baudelaire orphans are forced to work in a miserable lumbermill where they get two meals a day: a bad casserole and a stick of gum. Of course, Count Olaf lurks nearby. I was really glad to see the orphans get out of there ... but I'm sure their next destination will be even more miserable ...

Wonderful series. Most appropriate for middle school level children and older. Great book for family reading groups, as it leads to quite a lot of creative discussion.

My kids can read pretty much whatever they want. Given the option, neither ages 16 or 8 like these books and want to read more than one. Why? They say they are needlessly violent and depressing. There is a lot of killing - parents, aunts... While they may be well written or clever, I will take my children's cue and move these books out of our library.

I couldn't get past the third book. I found the stories to be too distrurbing, though I thought the writing was clever.

I think I enjoyed the first three in the series a little more, but still a great story and I'm looking forward to reading the rest!

A Series of Unfortunate Events is a depressing story altogether, and this book well follows suit. Accurately named, The Miserable Mill introduces some new characters and throws in some old ones. While most of the other books are miserable in a different way, this book is dreary and boredom-inspiring, making you wish they had made an Idiot's guide to this.

FROM THE PUBLISHER
Dear Reader,
I hope, for your sake, that you have not chosen to read this book because you are in the mood for a pleasant experience. If this is the case, I advise you to put this book down instantaneously, because of all the books describing the unhappy lives of the Baudelaire orphans, The Miserable Mill might be the unhappiest yet. Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are sent to Paltryville to work in a lumber mill, and they find disaster and misfortune lurking behind every log.

The pages of this book, I'm sorry to inform you, contain such unpleasantries as a giant pincher machine, a bad casserole, a man with a cloud of smoke where his head should be, a hypnotist, a terrible accident resulting in injury, and coupons.

I have promised to write down the entire history of these three poor children, but you haven't, so if you prefer stories that are more heartwarming, please feel free to make another selection.

With all due respect,

Lemony Snicket
