Where did Roald Dahl get his ideas to stories?
From his own own life of course, so we can say that his stories, most of them are realistic.
The book describes how he was living, I can tell you that is not like today. He was changing schools most of the time. It was a tough discipline at school, at that time, and in his old school they beat Roald because of a reason, when he put a dead mouse in a candy can. So he changed school, to a boarding school. But in that time, children had more respect for the teachers and the adults. They were quiet when they appeal them to be.
Roald Dahl has written the book for young people, so it’ll arouse curious among the young people more then it would turn it off, but sure, if a full grown man wants to read it, then it’s a good training for his English.

In the beginning of the book, I thought it was boring and I didn’t understand that much because of the noise in the classroom, but when I was at home, in silence, I really understood what he was going through.
It’s easy written by Dahl and it should be read by every students at school.
The description of his life was like he was rowdy and that stuff, that’s my understanding of the book.
I can’t find anything negative about that book because its about his life, nothing is right our wrong, you don’t decide your childhood. But some parts of the book I found it uninteresting, it was some unnecessary parts that he shouldn’t write about, but everything doesn’t have to be interesting.

I give the book 2 of 5 because it didn’t interested me, I’m more the girl that loves romantically and excitements books. This book didn’t give me non of them.
But anyway, it was a bit fun to read about were he actually got his ideas to stories, that’s something I’ve learned, I didn’t know, but now I do.
I know that I always learn something from books, some of the books that I’ve read has make me think twice, you don’t lose anything when you read this book, just the opposite.

Jag ville läsa en bok på engelska så jag frågade min lärare om han visste någon. Han rekommenderade den här boken. Den var bättre än vad jag trodde att den skulle vara.

Jag gillar verkligen hans berättelser från barndomen! Han berättar dem ofta med glimten i ögat, och man kan se var han har hittat karaktärer och idéer till sina senare böcker. Man kan också se moralen vad gäller t.ex. sjukdom, bilkörning och barnuppfostran från början av nittonhundratalet. Tur för Roald att hans näsa inte dog före honom...
