The Witches by Roald Dahl

I mentioned earlier but I started reading The Witches by Roald Dahl in Japanese and it was pretty interesting. It was exciting and the story builds up as you read. Story as you may know it is about a boy who lost his parents in car accident and now living with his grandmother. His grandmother tells him a story of the witches in Norway, where his grandmother is from. When his parents passed away, the will stated the boy to live with grandma in England so they go to England to live. When they took a vacation, the boy meets the real witches and … The ending of the book end with this great imagination of what their life would be like after wards and it is up to the readers to think of how their next adventure will be.

M doesn’t read book much and he said he is up to read something simple like Roald Dahl on his own time so I may lend it to him later because it really made me think of lots of different things like what it means to be happy. Happiness as shown by the witches and the boy comes from different sources. Witches on one hand feel happy when they see children suffer, while the boy’s happiness comes from just living with his loving grandmother. I am glad that I finally had a chance to read this book because I recommend Roald Dahl books to children at work but I have never read this particular book. I have read Charlie and Chocolate Factory, and James and the Giant Peach but not this book. Now I need to read the BFG and other books so I am all caught up on Roald Dahl books.
