A Series of Unfortunate Events 04 - The Miserable Mill by Lemony Snicket
Well, well, well... this is a pleasant surprise to the series. The repetition is still there but the setting on how the Baudelaire have been treated here is way more interesting. All I can say is that the series is progressively changing as both characters and plots are coming to a much more challenging phase!
As we all know all 3 kids are talented respectively. Inventor, Reader & Biter! Now, in this plot, one of the Baudelaire has been compromised and the remaining 2 are suppose to inter-adapt these impromptu talent in a short period of time. Foxy!
Towards the end, all 3 kids are able take on each others talent with a beautiful blast by saving the day and losing that idiot once more. Moreover, the villain now has a new accomplice (which is a 2nd prominent & smart villain) in this book which made the task even tougher to solve. Dr. Georgina Orwell. Is this sometime kind of hint that the author's favourite author might be the famous "George Orwell"? Great stuff to know about your author while you're reading!
Mr.Poe has become smarter now. His character is starting to grow in me as the series goes on. Mr. Sir is irritating as hell. Charles & Phil are exceptionally nice. Too nice indeed. The optimism of Phil is driving me nuts actually. Haha!!! I can't wait for the 5th book now.
Ratings: 5 out of 5 stars
