The Miserable Mill…

It must have done in the early 2000’s, during the Harry Potter craze, that I read the first three books of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortuate Events (I think my motivation was the release of Jim Carrey’s movie based on those novels).  I then either lost interest or lacked the time, but for whatever reason, I never returned to the books (even after my two oldest children read through the entire series just a few a years ago.

However, with the release of the Netflix original series – which the first season is based on the first four books – I decided to pick up where I left off.  The Miserable Mill is an easy and enjoyable read.  The author switches up the narrative a bit when he waits nearly halfway through the book to reintroduce the reader to Count Olaf.  He also concludes this story with a glimmer (no matter how small) of hope.  A few of my favorite quotes can be found on my Twitter feed.  Read the book, watch the series, and let me know what you think.
