After a first-rate outing in The Wide Window, the series suffers a little in its fourth installment. Violet, Klause and Sunny are shipped to yet another relative, Sir, and forced to work in his lumber mill. Although there are certainly very creative moments (worker paid in coupons, for example), overall this is not quite up to its predecessors. As a reader I found myself longing for the moment when things got interesting, instead of longing for the Baudelaires to escape. Hopefully the series will rally in The Austere Academy.
