Off all the stories describing the unhappy lives of the Baudelaire orphans, The Miserable Mill might be the unhappiest yet. The Austere Academy is not a story about cheerful youngsters spending a jolly time at boarding school. Within the chapters of 'The Ersatz Elevator', the Baudelaire orphans encounter a darkened staircase, a red herring, three mysterious initials, a liar with an evil scheme, a secret passageway and parsley soda!
It is our duty to stay to produce these tapes recording the history of the three hapless young orphans, so the general public will know each terrible thing that has happened to them. You won't enjoy it!
