"this was a very interesting book. I did not know that his life was so interesting and chaotic I feel that it will make me think about his books in a different way now that I know what his life was like." Alanna Phillips said.
"From my 10 year old son, who was the one who read it:
"This book taught me and told me a lot about one of my favorite authors. I didn't get bored reading it and I really liked it. I didn't give it 5 stars out of 5 because I was hoping it would be as funny as some of his books are, but it wasn't. But it was still a really entertaining book that I want to read again" ~from a 10 year old reader" Tiffany said.
"Anyone who has read a Dahl book will find this concise biography interesting. We get intriguing details of his comfortable Southern childhood followed by the adventures of the most adventurous writers, from living abroad to enlisting in the RAF during WWII. There is even a short biography of his first wife with an account of a loving and pleasant second life. A bibliography of his books made into movies will satisfy the movie buff along with an account of his experience as a screen writer.
Written for the young reader but with a challenging vocabulary. It will satisfy the older reader as well." ernest schusky said.
