R is for Roald Dahl

21 Apr


I read very good reviews about Roald Dahl children books and adult books approx. 2years back. Since then it was in my to read list.
Brought his first short story book – KissKiss around a year back and it was gracing my book shelf without moving from to –read to read shelf 
Without any particular reason I just didn’t read this book and finally started reading it last week.

I was literally awestruck by author’s ability to write amazing short stories from very ordinary mundane routine life. He has very keen observation and each short story included in Kiss Kiss book has twisted ending. You will predict where the story is going and at the end author has just written something totally different making your jaw wide opened. And it’s not twisted in routine way, he has written gentle hints and leaving upto to reader to make it as a whole story  The character development at the start of story really help in making out meaning of indirectly quoted end 

Now I have one big regret Why I took so long to know abt this great author and his work. My to read list now included all the books written by Roald Dahl and I am waiting for my kids to grow up and read his books 

    I’m actually planning to mention Roald Dahl in my “S” post tomorrow–and I agree with you–his short stories for adults are amazing!
