NOW A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES I hope, for your sake, that you have not chosen to read this book because you are in the mood for a pleasant experience. If this is the case, I advise you to put this book down instantaneously, because of all the books describing the unhappy lives of the Baudelaire orphans, The Miserable Mill might be the unhappiest yet. Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire are sent to Paltryville to work in a lumber mill, and they find disaster and misfortune lurking behind every log. The pages of this book, I'm sorry to inform you, contain such unpleasantries as a giant pincher machine, a bad casserole, a man with a cloud of smoke where his head should be, a hypnotist, a terrible accident resulting in injury, and coupons. I have promised to write down the entire history of these three poor children, but you haven't, so if you prefer stories that are more heartwarming, please feel free to make another selection. With all due respect, Lemony Snicket

Los libros de culto en los que se basa la nueva gran serie de Netflix. Querido lector, Te aconsejo que dejes este libro ya, de inmediato. Esta es, sin duda, la más funesta de todas las aventuras de los hermanos Baudelaire. Esta vez Violet, Klaus y Sunny se ven obligados a trabajar en un aserradero donde no hallarán más que calamidades y desventuras escondidas tras cada tablón. Las páginas de este libro contienen cosas tan desagradables como una gigantesca máquina de desbastar, un estofado asqueroso, un hombre con una nube de humo por cabeza, un hipnotizador y, cómo no, un terrible accidente. Yo he prometido relatar la historia completa de estos tres pobres niños, pero tú todavía estás a tiempo de cerrar el libro y hacer ver que esto nunca ha pasado. Atentamente, Lemony Snicket

NOW A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES A Warning from the Publisher: Imagine you are wearing a bandage that needs to be removed. Are you the sort of person who tears the bandage right off, causing an enormous amount of pain in a short instance? Or do you prefer to spread your pain out over a longer period of time, by slowly unpeeling the bandage from your injury? If you are the first type of person, then this three-book electronic collection might be for you. All of the misery and woe available in three Lemony Snicket volumes—The Miserable Mill, The Austere Academy, and The Ersatz Elevator—have been joined into one compactly miserable package, so readers foolish enough to read about the Baudelaire orphans can be unnerved in a slightly more economical fashion. If you are the second type of person, then volumes four through six in A Series of Unfortunate Events might be for you. Even if you unwisely choose to read them at a more leisurely pace, you will encounter such atrocities as poorly paid employees, a hypnotist, an evil scheme, a gym teacher, dripping fungus, another evil scheme, a fake accent, three mysterious consonants, a red herring, and at least one more evil scheme. Of course, most people would prefer not to be injured at all. We salute these sensible people, who will doubtless not purchase any books by Lemony Snicket, no matter how conveniently bundled.

Gar betrüblich ergeht es den Baudelaires ... Die Baudelaire-Geschwister ergeht ein schreckliches Schicksal: Nach dem Tod ihrer Eltern werden die Kinder in das düstere Haus von Graf Olaf gesteckt. Angeblich handelt es sich um einen entfernten Verwandten, der sich jedoch bald als gemeines Scheusal entpuppt. Er verfolgt den miesen Plan, das Vermögen der Kinder an sich zu reißen. Hinterhältig versucht er Violet dazu zu zwingen, ihn zu heiraten. Nur mit Hilfe von Klaus’ Belesenheit, Violets erfinderischem Genie und Sunnys Gabe, die Schurken im richtigen Moment zu beißen, gelingt es ihnen in letzter Sekunde, Graf Olafs Plan zu vereiteln. Aber der Bösewicht entkommt. Mr Poe, der Testamentsvollstrecker der Baudelaires, fährt die Kinder zu Onkel Monty. Bei dem berühmten Schlangenforscher fühlen sich die drei Waisenkinder wie im Paradies – doch nur für kurze Zeit. Denn der nette Onkel stirbt an Schlangengift, und Graf Olaf, diesmal in einer raffinierten Verkleidung, von der sich nur die Baudelaire-Kinder nicht täuschen lassen, versucht, die Kinder zu entführen ... Dieser Doppelband enthält 1) Der schreckliche Anfang 2) Das Haus der Schlangen
