Just finished the book thief
16 mjpenslitbooksgalore just added all those titles to my wish list mercy i always loved Matilda as a child, had no idea he wrote stuff for adults too.
7 ascensioni Not a well known fact, but Roald Dahl actually disliked children. That's why so many children meet untimely demises in his stories.
11 emilylydian My favorite collection: The Roald Dahl Omnibus: Perfect Bedtime Stories for Sleepless Nights.
6 Stingraycurry His short stories are amazing! "Skin" is the best in my opinion.
9 jumpropeharder I love Tales of the Unexpected especially Taste...if you like wine then read that selection! Also An African Story is probably my favorite short story ever.
3 ruthvh I totally read Lamb to the Slaughter in high school. I thought it was brilliant! I didn't realize Dahl wrote for adults. Definitely going to look it up. This has made my day. Thanks!
2 JimmyDynamic Great man.
2 alsohastentacles his books are amazing, but he hated jews. still, great stories.
1 theoxygenthief Man his war stories were the ones that really got to me.
1 Claude_Shea I loved him as a child, and really enjoyed his stories as an adult, but I will say that, other than a handful of other books I've read, his stories for adults creeped me out so much. They weren't scary, necessarily. They just left me really unsettled and I had to stop reading them before bed.
1 dallyan That's so weird. I just mentioned these stories in another Dahl thread. Very dark and very good.
1 Le_Anoos-101 I loved Danny the champion of the world maybe even more than Matilda
1 Erlkoenigin2 I haven't finished them all yet but I'd say so far "The Visitor" (with Uncle Oswald) is my absolute favorite. I loved the way I could feel like I was really there by the descriptions and they didn't slow down the story at all. "Royal Jelly" and "The bookseller" are also great. It's very strange to think that the same person who wrote "Matilda" (my favorite) also wrote all of these.
