5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful, funny book, 2 May 2004
This review is from: Boy: Tales of Childhood (Paperback)
Roald Dahl was a big part of my life as a child, as his books sent my imagination out of control! Now i am 18 and i can still sit down with one of his books and be completely absorbed for hours at a time. I read 'Boy, tales of childhood' yesterday and couldn't put it down. I felt as if i was being taken on a journey with Roald Dahl, back to England in the early 20th Century, and to the beautiful sounding Norway. I cringed as he described the pain of the cane, and laughed at the 'Great Mouse Plot' of 1924. Roald Dahl was an extremely mischievous little boy, and this makes the book a thoroughly exciting read.
An interesting aspect of the book is that the characters Dahl describes from his childhood are often similar to the ones he later constructed in his wonderful children's books, showing how childhood had a big impact on his later life.
Roald Dahl was a wonderful writer, i personally see him as genius, he was my childhood hero and this book is a truly amazing read.
