از بیشتر آثار ایشان فیلمی نیز ساخته شده ‌است ا شربیانی We all have our moments of brilliance and glory and this was mine This novel consists of a myriad of short stories that centered on memorable events throughout Dahl's childhood Each story had bits of wonder adventure intrigue and terror Lots of terror When writing about oneself one must strive to be truthful Truth is important than modesty The stories about doctor's visits and accidents were the most memorable for they were described in extremely explicit detail I was covering my mouth and shielding my eyes when he described how he nearly lost his nose in the car accidentand again during the plane accident His time at boarding school was the inspiration for Matilda abuse was rampart and there was little if anything that could be done The students the teachers and even the Headmaster all took delight in exercising their power I felt for the little Roald but the author did not write a pity me memoir He included the inspiration for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory During his early boarding school years he and the other kids tested new sweets for Cadbury The children took this extremely seriously and wrote long and complicated assessmentsRoald Dahl never grew up The uality of the writing the way he uses just the right word made this truly a classic novelYouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading I should probably give this 5 stars as I really enjoyed this liked this and it's so good I mean there is a lot of pain here and it's so funnyDahl is telling stories from his childhood He would holiday in the summer in Norway with his family every year He also went to boarding school You can see how this is the seeds for almost all his stories All the horror of adults he tells come from his experience at school I can't believe some stuff he had to live through It was abusiveThere was caning and students could also use corporal punishment on each other Teacher would single out students and yet he makes it all funny It was too short and probably a good thing You see where Charlie and the chocolate factory come from I mean the Trunchbull from Matilda is right out of his experienceIn the last chapter I got tickled the most So the chapter is called fagging In British boarding school an older boy would have younger classmen under him that did chores and things for him and he was called a fag This is back in the 20s or 30s before the meaning of the English word took over One of the boys forces Dahl to go and warm up the outhouse toilet seat for him by sitting on it for 15 minutes or He tells Dahl something like You have a warm bottom I don't like a cold bottom fag I like hot bottom fags I know it's childish and I simply died laughing I mean so funny sounding How strange the past interacting with the future There term is still derogatory in a different way I mean it's still sad they had that kind of power over underclassmen and hopefully it is better for kids now I guess school has always been hell This is worth the read I love reading nonfiction especially autobiographies This book was not just any autobiography but a book about Roald Dahl's childhood Growing up I loved the book Matilda and enjoyed James and the Giant Peach and the BFG and now as an adult I am making it my goal to read all his books I just set this goal a couple weeks ago and have read this book and The Giraffe and the Pelly and MeRoald Dahl told fascinating stories about his childhood up the the age of 18 He explained his extreme love of chocolate and his fear of most of his teachers I believe these two factors were huge for his writings and stories I really enjoyed Roald's autobiography that he swears wasn't one and I suggest it to anyone that enjoys him as a writer I just reread this book after reading it many times during my childhood It was as compelling as ever As was I rereading I picked up on so many influences that I unconsciously carried through the rest of my childhood and perhaps even adulthood Places and ideas that as a child I romanticized; Going to Norway swimming in the fiords and filling a pipe with goat's tobacco with my pack of siblings heaven The way Roald Dahl tells a story with such good humor and without ornament makes even getting canned sound like the most marvelous adventure in the world It's such a cheerful experience to reread a book you read as a child and find that it still makes you smile in all the same places I haven't read many autobiographies but even then I feel that this was a completely different take on what an autobiography should be Fun and witty Roald Dahl really manages to take the reader on a ride through his childhood and early adult days and shows a realistic picture of what it was like growing up in England in the early 20th century I loved how the book is interspersed with his personal photographs taken with his family and in his different schools and well as the letters he writes home to his mother and the witty nicknames he kept for his step sister and brother ancient half sister and not so ancient half brother😄 Through this book he also shares his point of view on some of the not so pleasant punishment practises in public schools in those days like getting thrashed by a cane fagging etc and includes a chapter on his Head Master at Repton who besides being a Head Master was a clergy man too and loved using this punishment practice which did create a lot of doubts and uestions in the young Roald Dahl's mind about some 'men of God' not practising what they preached This is a charming collection of stories from Roald Dahl's childhood I loved his books when I was a kid my favorites were Danny the Champion of the World The BFG and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and it was fun to hear some true tales from the great storytellerOne of my favorite stories was about the free candy bars he got when he was at boarding school Cadbury's would send over boxes of test chocolates and the boys would sample the new flavors and write their reviews Dahl said the boys took it very seriously nibbling each chocolate with the air of connoisseurs giving our marks and making our comments 'Too subtle for the common palate' was one note that I remember writing downDahl said this experience was important because he realized that large chocolate companies actually had inventing rooms and he imagined what it would be liked to work there and create new flavors I have no doubt at all that thirty five years later when I was looking for a plot for my second book for children I remembered those little cardboard boxes and the newly invented chocolates inside them and I began to write a book called Charlie and the Chocolate FactoryAnother sweet story was when Dahl became homesick while he was away at school and he decided to fake an appendicitis so he could return home for a few days He knew the symptoms because his older sister recently had it and he put on uite a show for the nurse yelping and moaning in pain His act worked until he got home and his regular doctor instantly knew he was faking The doctor made him promise never to do it again I listened to this on audio narrated by the actor Dan Stevens and he did a marvelous job performing the different characters I especially enjoyed the screechy voice he created for the mean woman who ran the local candy shop Mrs Pratchett Roald and his friends so hated Mrs Pratchett that one day he cooked up a plot to scare her he put a dead mouse in one of the candy jars Unfortunately the mean Mrs P figured out who had done it and had them whipped by the school's headmasterEven though I listened to this book I had a print copy to flip through and I do recommend peeking at the pages because it has some lovely photos notes and drawings Recommended for all Dahl fansFavorite uoteAfter leaving school Dahl was hired by the Shell Company and traveled to foreign countriesI began to realize how simple life could be if one had a regular routine to follow with fixed hours and a fixed salary and very little original thinking to do The life of a writer is absolute hell compared with the life of a businessman The writer has to force himself to work He has to make his own hours and if he doesn't go to his desk at all there is nobody to scold him If he is a writer of fiction he lives in a world of fear Each new day demands new ideas and he can never be sure whether he is going to come up with them or not Two hours of writing fiction leaves this particular writer absolutely drained For those two hours he has been miles away he has been somewhere else in a different place with totally different people and the effort of swimming back into normal surroundings is very great It is almost a shock The writer walks out of his workroom in a daze He wants a drink He needs it It happens to be a fact that nearly every writer of fiction in the world drinks whisky than is good for him He does it to give himself faith hope and courage A person is a fool to become a writer His only compensation is absolute freedom He has no master except his own soul and that I am sure is why he does it When writing about oneself one must strive to be truthful Truth is important than modesty Memoirs are always interestingRoald Dahl's Boy Tales of Childhood is an interesting book It is about the eventful and adventurous childhood days of Roald Dahl The book is written in a simple language which makes this a good read a delightful memoir Deciding to re read this book was inspired by the wonderful ladies at Gathering Books and their fantastic bimonthly meme‘Everything Dahl and Magical’ Which I absolutely adore “When writing about oneself one must strive to be truthful Truth is important than modesty I must tell you therefore that it was I and I alone who had the idea for the great and daring Mouse Plot We all have our moments of brilliance and glory and this was mine” I first read this glorious memoir aged twelve when I had to do a project in history on a historical person of my choice I went to Staples giddy as a kipper and bought about five piles of coloured sugar paper and two packets of gel pens the smelly glitter ones of course and set about completing possibly my favourite piece of homework I was minding my own business in the classroom armed with a Pritt Stick and a copy of every one of his book when this absolute so and so in my class said ‘Roald Dahl? Historical? I don’t think so You should have chosen a monarch or something You’re going to get a rubbish mark”Because I was a shy and retiring wallflower back then I muttered something under my breath and glared at her from underneath my unfortunate fringe BUT if she had said that to me today I would have found a desk stood on it and with my chest puffed out I would have declared “Roald Dahl is a historical figure because if Roald Dahl hadn’t written his books then British children’s fiction nay British fiction would have been far too bleak to tolerate He captured the imagination of so many children and wrote timeless stories that encouraged and continue to encourage children who would never normally pick up a book to do just that And if making generation after generation fall in love with his writing doesn’t ualify him as a historical person then I don’t know what does”But like I saidMumble Glare Unfortunate fringe Anyway I got my project back and I still have it and my wonderful history teacher wrote “Fantastic and original work here You really did justice to a wonderful figure in British culture 10 credits”10 credits? Fantastic and original YEAHAnyway back to the book I loved how Dahl only briefly mentions the stories that he is known for once It is only right near the end where he is describing how Cadbury’s World Which is just like Charlie's Chocolate Factory by the way used to send the boys of his boarding school sample chocolate to taste and how this lead to him writing Charlie and his adventures So whenever it was mentioned that his grandfather was nearly seven foot tall or how the young boy used to wonder how gobstoppers worked you can’t help but feel that Dahl is giving you a knowing wink or whispering a secret that only the two of you are privy to Witnessing these glimmers of inspiration that lead him to write his beloved stories all those years later was definitely my favourite thing about this book Mrs Pratchett with her blouse covered in “toast crumbs and tea stains and splotches of dried egg yolk” and hands that “looked as though they have been putting lumps of coal on the fire all day long”Remind you of any one?Or the Matron that “large fair haired woman with a bosom” who “ruled with a rod of steel”And Dahl’s Bestemama with her perpetual chair rocking or Bestepapa who sits “saying very little and totally overwhelmed”Paired with photographs hand written letters home and of course uentin Blake’s glorious illustrations My favourite one being the bug eyed twitching Captain Hardcastle Boy is still one of my all time favourites I could uite happily fill this review with uotes but I'll just leave you with this one “Anaesthetics and pain killing injections were not much used in those days Dentists in particular never bothered with them But I doubt very much if you would be entirely happy today if a doctor threw a towel in your face and jumped on you with a knife” You can find this review and lots of other exciting things on my blog here
