  • Roald Dahl Quentin Blake

    Roald Dahl was a British novelist, short story writer and screenwriter of Norwegian descent, who rose to prominence in the 1940 s with works for both children and adults, and became one of the world s bestselling authors.Dahl s first published work, inspired by a meeting with C S Forester, was Shot Down Over Libya Today the story is published as A Piece of Cake The story, about his wartime adventures, was bought by the Saturday Evening Post for 900, and propelled him into a career as a writer Its title was inspired by a highly inaccurate and sensationalized article about the crash that blinded him, which claimed he had been shot down instead of simply having to land because of low fuel.His first children s book was The Gremlins, about mischievous little creatures that were part of RAF folklore The book was commissioned by Walt Disney for a film that was never made, and published in 1943 Dahl went on to create some of the best loved children s stories of the 20th century, such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda and James and the Giant Peach.He also had a successful parallel career as the writer of macabre adult short stories, usually with a dark sense of humour and a surprise ending Many were originally written for American magazines such as Ladies Home Journal, Harper s, Playboy and The New Yorker, then subsequently collected by Dahl into anthologies, gaining world wide acclaim Dahl wrote than 60 short stories and they have appeared in numerous collections, some only being published in book form after his death His stories also brought him three Edgar Awards in 1954, for the collection Someone Like You in 1959, for the story The Landlady and in 1980, for the episode of Tales of the Unexpected based on Skin.

  • This book was so great I do enjoy the movie a bit , but nevertheless this will always be a favorite of mine I also really want to re read some Roald Dahl books now


  • Absolutely delightful I really wish I d read this when I was a kid I would have related to and loved Matilda so much I like that this is a book for children that doesn t cater to them it treats them like intelligent beings The plot was exciting, the characters fun, and the themes interesting.All together I ve only read two Dahl books now Matilda and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory but I definitely want to keep reading them


  • While I personally love a book about a child prodigy especially in the area of telekinesis , I had a different reaction to this book while rereading it as an adult As a kid I thought Matilda was awesome, she was intelligent and independent As an adult I see this as a book about gross neglect and a commentary on absentee parenting and its role in our children s education I come from a county where the dropout rate is high and everyone wants to blame the teachers, but no one identifies the real pr [...]


  • 5 stars from my little girl, Jess age 7.SPOILERS Comments while reading Matilda s parents are sooo stupid What is a used car salesman How does putting sawdust and oil in a car s gearbox make it run smoother The funniest parts are when Miss Trunchbull hurled the kids out of the classroom, and when the newt fell on her How come Miss Trunchbull made Nigel stand with one leg up while facing the wall That s a weird punishment What Miss Honey s wicked aunt is Miss Trunchbull What is a will I m glad th [...]


  • Book ReviewRoald Dahl gets 4 out of 5 stars for his knock it out of the park story, Matilda, from 1988 For some reason, I thought this was published before 1988, but I know I read it when I was 13, so must have been right then I thought it was great Looking back years later, and seeing all the films and cartoons made from it, I love it even While she s a good role model in many ways for young kids, she s all a little too spunky and might give some the wrong impressions Nevertheless, with the ri [...]


  • The best Thanks to Samra She brought back great memories.This was a favorite of my daughters when she was around 8 or 9 years old Some books just make you smile connect mothers and daughters reading together make us laugh and remind us of simple pleasures This is that type of book



  • Last year I read a book by Enid Blyton that I had not read since childhood and I decided that from time to time I would continue to re examine my childhood reads.So this time I chose a book by the very excellent Roald Dahl, Matilda.Matilda holds something for everyone Obviously, a children s book but it is witty on a scale that adults can appreciate too It is a book that can be picked up by a child and read alone or a book that you can read to your kids but I suggest whichever way there may be s [...]


  • This might be one of the most perfect books for readers It s about a reader who just wants to get her read on and bad people are trying to stop her Instant character attachment Fully involved in the tumultuous plot Let my reader goooo sing the readers What a wonderful tale Little Matilda is saddled with a nasty father, a fairly terrible mother and an indifferent brother Matilda just wants to read Why read when we ve got the telly, wonder her disgusting parents After being crapped on enough times [...]


  • This book was MAGNIFICENT I would have adored it as a kid, and even as an adult, I thought that the language was so enchanting, the storyline was heartwarming and gripping, and Matilda herself was such a strong and dynamic role model I will definitely be investing in Roald Dahl books, because I thought this one was beautiful and the pictures went with it so well and all the descriptions were so nice and it was such an enjoyable reading experience.However, I docked a star from this because I fel [...]


  • My first review in 2017 Matilda,my most beloved character and reason for my insatiable love for children s classicsI ve read it quite countless times,listened to audio version while in most shitty mood,have adored it every time but never came up with a word to say on it.Well,today I heard it in my way back to home,and i thought to make it reviewed at long last The exceptional Matilda is about a smart, easily infuriated little girl who is misunderstood by her parents and loathed by the school s h [...]


  • You chose books and I chose looks Matilda s mom kills me I chose looks I like to look smart too, though In high school my bro s friends would pick on me for owning so many books I pretended to be dumb like Matilda and said I hadn t read any of the books and they were trophies to make me look smart That answer was apparently the right thing to say probably about the only time I ve ever said the right thing either If it is right to say either like eye ther I said it like eee thur, and so forth Sca [...]


  • Matilda is basically a child prodigy she is 4 years old and a voracious reader That is amazing, I know But, Matilda is not the only character There are the tyrannical parents who do not encourage reading, do not have a shred of love or sympathy for Matilda and basically hate Matilda for some unknown reason They even abandon her without even thinking twice Who does that Especially with out any sane cause Then there is her school life and enters Mrs Trunchbull She is evil Not simply evil, pure una [...]


  • REVIEW TO COME TODAY.The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived exciting livesis book tells us about a brilliant little girl named Matilda Wormwood and she loves reading books But her parents seem don t really proud of her and they don t even care much about her and her father is mean so when he treats her badly, She will teach him a lesson and one day something peculiar happens to her My OpinionWhen I was a kid, I watched the movie and I loved it so [...]


  • Matilda is a lovable protagonist, revered for her mischievous nature and easily sympathized with because of her abusive parents who don t recognize how extraordinary she is Admittedly, she s a vengeful girl, but that never subtracts from her likability Roald Dahl crafted unapologetically over the top characters for this book When she marched Miss Trunchbull never walked, she always marched like a storm trooper with long strides and arms aswinging when she marched along a corridor you could actua [...]


  • La verdad es que siempre tuve curiosidad por leer este libro ya que siempre am la peli, pero honestamente esperaba otra cosas y result no ser mi favorito de Roald Dahl, tiene obras mucho m s ingeniosas y entretenidas.Lo dejo en un me gust.Sin embargo, le voy a dar cinco estrellas porque 1 es Roald Dahl2 es Matilda3 detesto a los adultos que le dan puntajes negativos a libros infantiles Dios no permita que me convierta en uno alguna vez P

  • All the reading she had done had given her a view of life that they had never seen.This book was so heartwarming And it just proved that Dahl was and always will be one of the best storytellers ever The way he writes and how he draws you into the story will always amaze me This is my second book of his, but it definitely won t be my last.Amazing book, that I think everybody should read, at least once.



  • I ve seen the movie three times already and always loved it but it wasn t until recently that I finally bought the book Roald Dahl truly is the master storyteller everyone calls him Every book he wrote of those I ve read so far seems to have sort of a signature style that makes the reader recognize the author while at the same time the tone of the book is different The characters are unique and have wonderful depth which is not self evident since the books are fairly thin Each story features a c [...]


  • Reading Matilda was fun and an easy read I have to be honest and say I do definitely prefer the movie I ve watched it a few times and Matilda in the movie is a little star My book is going to two small girls who are dying to read it so no regrets at all.


  • I have short changed this story by giving it 3 stars for so long I ran out and bought this book for my little nieces for Christmas No way they will grow up without Matilda in their life She s brilliant What a love for books and knowledge Such a gentle, empathetic soul I can t wait to share her with them.8 28 17Listening to this for the third timeI just adore Kate Winslet s narration She s fantastic, perfect for children and adults11 12 17Audible relisten I just cannot get enough of this story It [...]


  • This book is such a FUN FUN read If you are in mood for a light stress buster, this book is just PERFECT.I haven t seen the movie and this book was a surprise for me I love the author s writing style and the way Matilda, her family and her life in general has been portrayed.There is underlying humor in the book which is very subtle but an absolute joy to read.I loved Matilda, she is absolutely amazing and I would want to be friends with her in real life.I love that she loved booksMiss Trunchball [...]


  • Matilda is such a famous book movie that I think it doesn t need a synopsis.So, I ll get into the middle of things and admit that this is my first time reading the book and my first time seeing the movie hides The reason I read this in the first place is that Matilda is my son s next book assignment I felt nervous because I m not a fan of Roald Dahl s The BFG and didn t know what to expect And yet I am thrilled about this book I absolutely love it and highly recommend it to those who, like mysel [...]


  • What s not to love about Matilda Child genius who loves reading and learning, Terrible verbally abusive parents and an all kinds of abusive Headmistress It sounds like it s going to be dismal, and it is sad I really, really felt for little Matilda but her attitude and outlook on life are fantastic and inspirational And like all Dahl books, the nasty characters get their comeuppance Love, love, love this book even than I remembered.




  • This Roald Dahl classic was first published in 1988 and holds a high ranking on the list of best children s literature And the movie, directed and acted by Danny Devito, may even be better These great characters that Dahl created, Matilda, her parents, Mr Mrs Wormwood, Miss Trunchbull, Miss Honey, were all brought to life in what is one of my favorite children s movies.
