This book is about what happened after Charlie won the factory. IF you want to know what all it is about I just can't spoil it for you but I will tell you it has something to do with space..
I'm sure u have read Charlie and the chocolate factory if u r reading this review. This is just another funny,classic and awesome book for ages 7-100. This guy just does not know how to make a bad book. Even people who r getting a little older (no offence) think this book is charming. Now if u have read Charlie and the chocolate factory, u know that he is GREAT writer.
Now for a little peek at the book.
Charlie and his family have gone into space!!! This is a bad thing but the older people STILL won't get out of their bed. Then Aliens come and try to take down Charlie and the crew. Can they survive the aliens? Will people think that THEY r the aliens? Find out in this master piece!!!!!!!!
Give this book a chance. Just a chance.
We own both this and his reading of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and my girls (and I) have listened to both of them several times. I would recommend them to anyone, and doubly so to fans of Charlie or of Roald Dahl.
I will just offer my brief impressions of this book.
This story is made up of two halves. The first half focuses on the journey back to the factory. The Elevator links up with a space hotel and Mr Wonka and the Buckets are chased by Vermicious Knids. Once they are back at the factory the story changes gear to talk about the abuses of Wonkavite by the grandparents. The Elevator links both halves of the book because it is used for all the journeys that Charlie makes. However this does not disguise the fact that this book has two distinct halves that do not cohere together.
The writing style is laboured here and lacks freshness. Also, the jokes come off as lame and feeble. Only Willy Wonka holds the book together.
As such, this book is not quite as compelling and coherent as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
