[Discussion] Is anyone else crazy for annotated collections?
1061 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.
189 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!
524 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.”
222 belle88 Definitely George's Marvelous Medicine. The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and 6 More is good too.
547 Highfalutin-Free Matilda, bitches! I had a copy of that book, reread it so much I have less than a book now and more of a pile of papers.
60 EGOtyst My uncle Oswald and skin come to mind.
149 jonnme1 I love Danny Champion of the world. Loved it so much I asked my mum to read it to me when I was a kid, I think the only time I ever did that. I live close to the Roal Dahl house/museum, I should really go.
115 xavacid I love the witches, it was the first of his books that I read.
40 purinikos I absolutely love Roald Dahl. He raised me in way. Even now 20 years later I give his books a quick read every now and then
73 dallyan Have you read his short stories for adults? Dark af.
33 Portarossa 'She'll not feel so rotten as soon as she's gotten some cider inside 'er inside!' But yeah... I grew up as a nerdy little bookworm, and Matilda Wormwood will forever be my homegirl.
80 metasirena I loved James and the Giant Peach. In retrospect I realize it taught me to mentally escape my circumstance without having the ability to actually change anything in my childhood.
