In Boy, Roald Dahl recounts his days as a child growing up in England. From his years as a prankster at boarding school to his envious position as a chocolate tester for Cadbury's, Roald Dahl's boyhood was as full of excitement and the unexpected as are his world-famous, best-selling books. Packed with anecdotes -- some funny, some painful, all interesting -- this is a book that's sure to please.
Boy is one of the few Roald Dahl books I did not read when I was younger and was looking forward to this new experience with a favorite childhood author.
Impressions While Reading
It was a riveting look at Roald Dahl’s childhood in only the way he could
Impressions on Narration
It is Matthew Crawley! I could listen to Dan Stevens read the phonebook.
I am so happy to have read Boy and am only sad that I didn’t read it in my childhood as it is a masterful look at youth with writing down to kids. I look forward to reading Going Solo, a novel of Roald Dahl’s adulthood.
