Roald Dahl even more fascinating in non-fiction

by isme on Oct 16, 2007

This is a superb, and fascinating, book. The autobiography of the man who brought us Charlie and the Chocolate Factory; The Witches; and many other books and stories -- it is amazing. The most interesting item to me is that it is written based on letters that he wrote home to his mother all through his childhood (from school), and early adulthood, that she saved over all those years -- wow!! There are also some very intriguing hints of where such stories as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory started. A great read. I would recommend this to anyone.


Good ole days.....

Boy: Tales of Childhood is a sweet reminiscence indeed of days- gone - by; of a more innocent era. Many delightful recollections of a time of boarding schools and wonderful candies with intriguing names like "humbugs', " acid drops", " sherbet suckers" and " bootlaces" make this book one you will put down dreaming about summertime and your own childhood. It made me realize that while so much has changed in the world since Dahl's youth, somethings about boys will never change.
