COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Fantastic! submitted by imsuk lee on June 28, 2011, 1:15pm It was great to learn about Dalh's childhood!

Great submitted by 0liviap0pp on July 6, 2011, 5:58pm I thought this was a great book and a great read. It was really interesting to learn about his childhood, and all the fun stuff he did before all the technology came out!

boring submitted by Zach Halberstam on July 10, 2011, 2:35pm this is boring

Autobiogra-fun submitted by Allison B on July 22, 2013, 5:50pm This book is just as entertaining as his fiction works. You can hear the lighthearted voice coming through, though it addresses some serious (and definitely some silly!) issues.

Great submitted by dumusicgirl on August 6, 2013, 1:37pm I remember reading this book as a kid. I found some parts frightening, especially at his school but enjoyed it overall.

Kind of disturbing submitted by willow on July 17, 2016, 8:38am I am not sure this is a great book for kids. It is pretty dark (surprise!) about Dahl's childhood and unpleasant experience in boarding schools. There is something more distubing about memoirs of abuse than fictional stories such as those he writes.

This explains his children's books submitted by jhaiduce on August 3, 2016, 10:36pm Much of this book about Dahl's childhood takes place in boarding schools, where he describes hazing by upperclassmen and teachers alike. In many ways these experiences seem to have informed his children's books, many of which are about children overcoming oppressive treatment by grownups.
