The literature circle role that I followed for Chapter Three was the connector. Unfortunate events take place in everyone's lives, but the Baudelaire children seem to be experiencing one bad event after another. In this chapter they move into Count Olaf's estate, a very dreary, miserable looking place. Their first impressions portray to the reader that Count Olaf's home is not a welcoming environment at all. I have had a similar experience as the children, except my foreign home was at a summer camp. My first impression of the camp was that it was dirty and unorganized. The camp counselors seemed very bossy and unfriendly. Just as I suspected, they were more interested in telling us what to do, rather than making sure we were having fun. We spent most of our time doing chore-like activities instead of entertaining activities. I was in the same position as the children, because I felt trapped in a miserable place where I could only get through the day by doing the chores that the counselors asked me to do. It was horrible.
