My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Welcome to Book the Fourth of our readathon!
I think because I am so excited to read number five, number four seems a bit of..big field to walk through if you catch my drift. You just want to get on with some steam-rolling action, especially after the clues left in The Wide Window. But instead we are at Lucky Smells Lumbermill – putting these children to work seeing as all they have been doing is trying to get to know distant relatives and looking out for Count Olaf in all shapes and sizes.
This book is a little more grizzly than the others, due to the machinery involved and the deaths than ensue. It feels slightly more methodical in story-line- not as mysterious but nonetheless it was still an enjoyable fourth instalment.
