Brill, obviously.
Hasn't everyone read this at least once?

Quite short, just a bit longer than 1 hour in the bath. ( )

Re-reading this an adult was a bit of surprise. It was one of my favorites as a child and, while I still enjoyed, it just didn't resonate with me quite as much. Perhaps I don't have the same interest or tolerance in gross-out or rude humor. However, Dahl is a fantastic storyteller and reading any of his books is delightful; particularly fun are the childhood inspirations for his novels.

Course evaluation:

Personal Response: As a fan of Dahl’s fiction, I found this book to be quite interesting. He conveys what he believes are the most important points of his life, or at least the most memorable, in the same style of his novels. The love for his family, the importance of writing in his life, and his dark sense of humor are apparent at an early age.

Evaluation: This autobiography reads like a novel, which will appeal to readers; the action, cartoon-like drawings, realistic and animated dialogue result in a very fun and engaging story. Dates, places and dry details are eschewed for very memorable characters and absurd situations. As is typical with memoirs, characters and situations seem slightly exaggerated, but remain believable; the dialogue brings everyone in the book to life and will make readers more interested in the action.

She had received two full half-hour lessons in driving from the man who delivered the car, and in that enlightened year of 1925 this was considered quite sufficient. Nobody had to take a driving-test. You were your own judge of competence, and as soon as you felt you were ready to go, off you jolly well went.

As we all climbed into the car, our excitement was so intense we could hardly bear it.

'How fast will it go?' we cried out. 'Will it do fifty miles an hour?'

'It'll do sixty!' the sister answered. Her tone was so confident and cocky it should have scared us to death, but it didn't.

'Oh, let's make it do sixty!' we shouted. 'Will you promise to take us up to sixty?'

'We shall probably go faster than that,' the sister answered, pulling on her driving-gloves and tying a scarf over her head in the approved driving-fashion of the period.

Jody Little (Children's Literature)
Dahl’s autobiography of his first 20 years of life begins with a brief description of his parents’ backgrounds, including his father’s death when Dahl was only three years old. Dahl then moves into short memories from his childhood and school days beginning with his year in kindergarten and then the move to Llandaff Cathedral School. While at Llandaff, Dahl writes fondly of the local sweet shop owned by a “small skinny old hag with a moustache on her upper lip and a mouth as sour as a green gooseberry.” He tells the story of finding a dead mouse at school and deciding with his friends to put the mouse in a candy jar at the sweet shop, a prank that eventually earns him four strokes of the headmaster’s cane. At age nine, Dahl moves to boarding school where he begins to write a weekly letter home to his mother, a habit he continues for 32 years. His mother kept all the letters from Roald, and he includes many snippets of them throughout the book. The final section includes memories of his teen years at Repton School and his first job outside of school with the Shell Company. Fans of Roald Dahl’s books will recognize details from his life, such as the sweet shop, Gobstoppers, the villainous adults, and the Cadbury Coffee Cream Bar, which later led to some of Dahl’s most memorable children’s books. 2009 (orig. 1984), Puffin Books/Penguin, $6.99. Ages 10 up.

Bill Boyle (Books for Keeps No. 38, May 1986)
Subtitled 'Tales of childhood', this is a fascinating insight into the young life of Roald Dahl. All are true, and act as indicators of the sources of much of the material in Dahl's books. 'An English school in those days was purely a moneymaking business owned and operated by the Headmaster,' So, naturally, money could be made by encouraging parents to send parcels of food to their offspring, thereby reducing the amount he would have to spend on school meals. Part and parcel of the 'make your own Headmaster kit' was 'the kind of flashing grin a shark might give to a small fish just before he gobbles it up.' Very interesting and worthwhile reading as background to the developing Roald Dahl, from dot to twenty, an adolescent world of boarding school and boaters fagging and tuck boxes holding frogs and slugs. Category: Middle/Secondary. . ...., Puffin, D1.95. Ages 10 to 14.

None of these things is important, but each of them made such a tremendous impression on me that I have never been able to get them out of my mind.  Each of them, even after a lapse of fifty and sometimes sixty years, has remained seared on my memory.

I didn’t have to search for any of them.  All I had to do was skim them off the top of my consciousness and write them down.

Some are funny.  Some are painful.  Some are unpleasant. I suppose that is why I have always remembered them so vividly.  All are true.
Throughout my young days at school and just afterwards a number of things happened to me that I have never forgotten.
