Clouded Glass Elevator

by ncweber on Nov 6, 2008

There's a reason why the sequel to Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory wasn't made into a major motion picture. There was no point to it. The first story was about how being a kind and caring person is often rewarded by others. A very noble sentiment if a trifle simplistic. Glass Elevator is a rambling series of nonsensical episode the reduces many of the supporting characters (particularly the Bucket family) from the supportive family member they were in the first story into selfish, greedy idiots. The events of the story are surrealist in nature and are generally unrelated to one another. The writing insults the intelligence. If you don't mind reading bizarre stories with no sense of direction, and a bit of fierce political satire thrown in, then this book might be up your alley.
