So far, I would have to say that this was the most depressing book in the series. Nevertheless, Lemony Snicket still managed to maintain his high-caliber writing style that never fails to draw me in. If you have yet to read this series, I hope that you get on it right away!
After unsuccessfully having three different guardians, the Baudelaire orphans now find themselves working in a dreadful lumber mill. Within time, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny learn to adapt to their new, abrasive lifestyle. Suddenly, things take a turn for the worse when Klaus breaks his glasses, which ends up causing more troubles then the children would have imagined.
