The book reads effortlessly and fast, and it is truly enjoyable. A classic of the children literature.
I like Quentin Blake's illustrations style but, I don't resonate with his images in this book, perhaps because I imagine Matilda being very different from what is drawn, and somewhat the rest does not fit in my mind as "what should be".
Roald Dahl never ceases to amaze me. I adore his diversity along with his sweet way of making his fans and readers sincerely care what happens with his many characters: i.e. "Charlie Bucket", "Sophie" and now our heroine, MATILDA!
Matilda is probably Dahl's finest creations. She is not only a sweetie but quite the genius with a heart to match. Dahl has been accused of hating children, due to his stories that involve many shenanigans that revolve around children and a their demise. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Witches, and even Matilda. All these stories center around adults despising children.
Matilda Wormwood is a little girl that is neglected and treated badly by her asinine parents because of her intelligence. She has taught herself how to read and even finds her own way to the library. Matilda's passion is overwhelming when it comes to books. Matilda develops telekinetic powers and uses them in the most ingenious, resourceful and cute ways. Especially on her mean old Principal, Miss Trunchbull.
However, her teacher, Miss Honey is a soft spoken, sweet as honey teacher who loves being around children and teaching with bright colors, cute little ditty's, and dances. Matilda's dysfunctional life at home is ludicrous and certainly shows Dahl's grim outlook of children but drives out some of the best stories ever written. By the time Matilda enters school, the little darling has read the old classics from Jules Vern and Charles Dickens. Matilda is a very well-rounded and cultured little girl, who dwells in the most horrible of circumstances and living conditions. She is truly a hero by every sense of the word: HERO. She will warm your heart and keep you smiling as you turn the pages.
The book is beautiful as the words inside. A must have for Dahl fans or readers that just enjoy a delightful reading excursion into another world, a world of Dahl.
