    I Really Love These...

    I read all of Roald Dahl's books as a kid.  My favourite was Danny the Champion of the World but I also have fond memories of Fantastic Mr. Fox and The Twits.   I'm not sure why I liked them so much, but I assume that it's because they're grotesque.  I always...

    It Makes Me Feel Better =)

    I actually thought it was childish and stupid, because I usually read something for adults and..I mean not adults in a meaning that children can't read it! Just like for example "the Poe Shadow", "What Time Devours" and "Blind Faith", it's good...

    Danny, The Champion Of The World

    There are several books that have stayed with me since childhood. Wherever I moved, and I moved a lot, those books got packed and unpacked. One of them is "Danny, the Champion of the World". It's full of heart and adventure and that sweet wackiness that comes from Dahl. I have...
