Man I love Roald Dahl! I think i must have read matilda a zillion times when i was in primary school, and the witches still creep me out.
Boy is his sort-of autobiography. Only it ends just after he finishes school & gets a job. He's such a good writer! And his mum sounds like she was so strong!
Highly recommended - *****

I can't wait to read his follow-up, but that would involve going to the much energy....I'm reading Jane Austen's letters at the mo'. She's not the nicest chick.

Any suggestions, anyone? I need something light.

Hi all,

I finished ended up being quite enjoyable. No romantic plot at all unfortunately. But it was very nice and proper. Turns out Elizabeth Gaskell was a bit of a feminist & she wanted to provide a record for how the english gentility lived day-to-day. There were lots of essays out at the time claiming how women without a husband were unnecessary and could never live in harmony with other spinsters/widows....she prooved them wrong! Girl power:)
A nice look back, but not much action, so let's give it ***.

I've just started Boy - Roald Dahl's that guy knows how to put pen to paper, hey?
