The Disaster Artist is WAY more more emotional than what I was expecting. This is one of the most inspiring books I've ever read and a testament to what you can accomplish if you set your mind to something.

1060 tcon001 I always loved the Twits. When I was younger it was funny because they were so nasty and disgusting. Now that I'm older it's almost sad because I realize (except for some of their more extreme actions) people like this do exist and Dahl was writing a fine piece of satire.
187 ofcabbagesandkings14 I have to say my first Roald Dahl memory was reading James and the Giant Peach in 2nd grade and the uproar that was caused when the word "ass" came up in the story lol. Now I'm a teacher and I get to introduce hoards of kids to the magic of his books!
532 xsavarax the BFG. Even for adults, it's a really good read. > - “Meanings is not important, said the BFG. I cannot be right all the time. Quite often I is left instead of right.” > - “I is reading it hundreds of times,' the BFG said. 'And I is still reading it and teaching new words to myself and how to write them. It is the most scrumdiddlyumptious story.' Sophie took the book out of his hand. 'Nicholas Nickleby,' she read aloud. 'By Dahl's Chickens,' the BFG said.” > - “Titchy little snapperwhippers like you should not be higgling around with an old sage and onions who is hundreds of years more than you.” > - “Don't gobblefunk around with words.”
