    About "Roald Dahl"

    1. Roald Dahl

      Roald Dahl was a British novelist, short story writer and screenwriter of Norwegian descent, who rose to prominence in the 1940 s with works for both children and adults, and became one of the world s bestselling authors.Dahl s first published work, inspired by a meeting with C S Forester, was Shot Down Over Libya Today the story is published as A Piece of Cake The story, about his wartime adventures, was bought by the Saturday Evening Post for 900, and propelled him into a career as a writer Its title was inspired by a highly inaccurate and sensationalized article about the crash that blinded him, which claimed he had been shot down instead of simply having to land because of low fuel.His first children s book was The Gremlins, about mischievous little creatures that were part of RAF folklore The book was commissioned by Walt Disney for a film that was never made, and published in 1943 Dahl went on to create some of the best loved children s stories of the 20th century, such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda and James and the Giant Peach.He also had a successful parallel career as the writer of macabre adult short stories, usually with a dark sense of humour and a surprise ending Many were originally written for American magazines such as Ladies Home Journal, Harper s, Playboy and The New Yorker, then subsequently collected by Dahl into anthologies, gaining world wide acclaim Dahl wrote than 60 short stories and they have appeared in numerous collections, some only being published in book form after his death His stories also brought him three Edgar Awards in 1954, for the collection Someone Like You in 1959, for the story The Landlady and in 1980, for the episode of Tales of the Unexpected based on Skin.

    1. What bothers me the most about this book isn t even the sexism, although there is plenty of it to go around By the truckload What bothers me is the fact that the characters are so blatantly being raped by the means of a drug rape Dahl makes light of this issue, tries to make us laugh at it, and probably succeeds Initially, I was very amused by him But over the course of the first hundred pages, I started to get a little angry, and then I got mad What, you think that just because you re talking o [...]

    2. Roald Dahl might like us to dismiss the rank male chauvinism, tired stereotypes, and hackneyed writing in this book, on the grounds that his Uncle Oswald is a charming old rogue But there s nothing charming about the implied contempt for women that oozes through the lazy prose of Oswald s creaky tale There may be men still alive who share his sexist view of the world, but I doubt they read books.Dahl has written some genuinely funny stories published in Great Britain under the titles Kiss Kiss a [...]

    3. Okay, there is just no defending this book.It s unbelievably offensive and problematic in basically every possible way you could imagine And some you probably can t Or shouldn t.But it s also y know utterly and unspeakably hilarious.I made poor Kat read this because she s a fan of Roald Dahl s children s stories She s recovering fine.Honestly, I read it first when I was about eighteen And, coming back to it, I wasn t quite prepared for the sheer scope and scale of its it s incredibly crass awful [...]

    4. My grandmother has this friend, a woman I have known as my auntie since I was very young The woman always told me sweet stories when I was a child, ones suitable for a child Last year at Christmas she got a little bit tipsy on wine and began to tell sexual jokes which, coming from an 80 year old woman, was a bit unsettling And yet hilariously comfortable.This book is sort of the parallel to that story the Roald Dahl we knew as children writing a story entirely revolving around sex I was a bit st [...]

    5. What started off as a fun, entertaining, well written frolic ultimately, due to its sexism, homophobia, and glorified rape culture left a horrendous taste in my mouth view spoiler My Uncle Oswald is a fake memoir of a lecherous millionaire explaining how he made his fortune ultimately, by using the dried powder of a kind of Sudanese beetle to make pills with powerful aphrodisiac powers For a large chunk of the book, Oswald and his business partner Yasmin travel around Europe tricking famous king [...]

    6. Sungguh buku yang liar Kalau rajin baca Roald Dahl pasti sudah tidak asing dengan keliaran imajinasinya yang membuahkan, antara lain, Matilda dan Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Tapi kali ini dia membawa imajinasinya ke dimensi lain yang jauh lebih dewasa, My Uncle Oswald.Pernahkah terpikir bisa punya anak dari tokoh tokoh hebat dunia seperti Monet, Picasso, Einstein, Puccini, Bernard Shaw atau dari raja raja Eropa yang tak tersentuh Tidak harus menikah dengan mereka tentu saja, karena peluang [...]

    7. I laughed and cried out loud at the ludicrousness and obscenity of the diary record of My Uncle Oswald This book is obscene, it is not erotic Do not prepare to climb into bed early one night with this adult fantasy as a sexy treat Roald Dahl s adult work is Charlie and the Chocolate factory gone Oswald and the Sex factory Sex is imagined in every shape and form and nationality and flexibility heels hooked around the neck, WTF till all that candy makes you sick All centered around a scheme to col [...]

    8. Hilarious This is Dahl for adults I think this is a gem that has yet to be discovered by the general public Definitely worth your time Here is the summary from 1938 diary of Oswald Hendryks Cornelius his memories at age 43 of his escapades some 25 years earlier English youth Oswald makes his first fortune at 17 by journeying to the Sudan, purchasing a chunk of the world s most potent aphrodisiac ground up Blister Beetles , and selling it in pill form to the wealthiest men and then women too of P [...]

    9. Very funny at first, and then you realize it s very funny largely because this is a famous children s book author writing a book about a lecherous, greedy man who makes money by selling love potions and then by convincing the one woman he feels any connection with to extract semen in the usual manner from geniuses and royals, all with a view to selling the precious swimmers to rich, stupid women who want to have the children of the afore mentioned gents And then the episodes of semen collection [...]

    10. What I learned from this book is that Roald Dahl has some serious issues with women I loved all his children s books and I had heard that he was a lot scandalous in his adult fiction but damn This book is based on the fake memoirs of Uncle Oswald, the greatest fornicator of all time I thought it would be a fun and funny read which it was in some sense , but it was also glorifying the sexual abuse and use of women for men s pleasure The main redeeming quality is that Oswald, the main character, [...]

    11. I kind of regret not taking the time to review this book when I first finished reading it Since it was quite some time ago around two years, if I m not mistaken main part of the plot is kind of gone and I m now left with my overall impression of this book I remember loving it I knew Roald Dahl was brilliant when, 8 years old and just finished with Matilda, I decided it was too good a book and promised myself I d never read a translated book again So to this day I still owe him a great deal.Back [...]

    12. Es una novela corta de car cter er tico festivo o sea, humor con toques light de escenas sexuales ambientada a comienzos del siglo XX y donde relata en primera persona las aventuras que le acontecieron al t o Oswald y sus asociados en su intento exitoso de hacerse rico, muy rico.Es muy divertida de leer y si quer is pasar un ratito son s lo 200 pags de humor con sonrisa perpetua, coged este libro y preparaos para novela ligera donde olvidaros de los malos rollos y disfrutad de la mano del licenc [...]

    13. I haven t added a book to my favorites page in FOREVER and I m so happy that the honored spot is going to this one.What a lot of fun Just what a spectacular book I mean, does this book reveal deep and special feelings within me No nor should it have That would have been inappropriate and uncomfortable for everyone.Instead, this book is just a savage, salacious jaunt through Europe with a few people who ve decided that early 20th century morality wasn t that big of a deal and EVERYONEJUSTNEEDSTOH [...]

Unchiul Oswald e un fragment dintr un pseudo jurnal erotic al personajului titular Aceasta con ine cartea a XX a din jurnal pe alocuri face referin e c tre jurnale mai vechi n care Oswald poveste te originea averii sale Pe scurt e vorba de un praf f cut dintr un g ndac sudanez care e un extraordinar afrodiziac cu efect puternic i brusc Oricine ingereaz un v rf de ac de astfel de praf devine n 9 minute pe ceas un animal sexual s lbatic, care va face absolut orice s i satisfac nevoile.Ini ial, Osw [...]

    16. I ve just finished re reading My Uncle Oswald and I found it just as entertaining as I did last time It s dirty, it s porn y, it s ridiculous from start to finish, with mad metaphors substituting for some of the dirty scenes Oswald pictures himself as a jousting knight defeating a giant man eating woman during one of his sexual encounters Definitely no children s book, this one.Oswald is an immoral bastard in love with money, sex, wine and food, with a penchant for finding good business everywhe [...]

    17. I still can t believe I found this book in Children s section, I wouldn t be too surprised in some cases, but this is American library Knowing how everybody s freaking out about children sex topic, I was than shocked.This book is lavishly but bluntly written about fucking I am not going to say love making , there was no love making, just simple fucking And a funny twist of how viagra and artificial insemination could have started.I probably would have enjoyed this book much If I were a young t [...]

    18. You guys Roald Dahl is dirty Dirty dirty dirty This is my first go at reading his adult stories and I must say, I did enjoy it Excellent back stage reading This translates into being easy enough to pick up and put down at odd intervals and read in the dark, but also having content that is compelling enough to keep you interested while your ears are hearing the same play for the 27th time being screamed just on the other side of the curtain I wasn t quite sure about how he treated his lady charac [...]

    19. Sent una pulsada de emoci n al leer la contraportada de este libro como si hubiera ingerido un escarabajo sudan s , fui contra l y comenc a devorarlo Lo peculiar de Dahl es que su mayor trabajo reconocido es en el rango de literatura para infantil Libros encantadores que han cruzado las fronteras hacia otros medios art sticos El t o Oswald es en cambio, un texto sobre un tipo sin escr pulos, lascivo y ambicioso El libro est lleno de picard a, Ingenio y humor.

    20. Book Review My Uncle Oswald, by Roald DahlI always enjoyed Dahl s brilliant and witty writings as a child, so it s no surprise that I equally enjoy his adult themed books as well When I was teaching, I used to use his short story Lamb to the Slaughter as an excellent example of situational irony Lamb was originally published by Harper s in the early 50 s Many of the best writers were published in Harper s and The New Yorker back in those days.A few years back, I discovered his Omnibus which lef [...]

    21. Una de las cosas buenas de seguramente lo mejor es que a trav s de personas que vas conociendo aqu llegas a saber algo de libros como este, a los que, de otra forma, tal vez nunca le hubiese echado un vistazo.Cuando le la valoraci n de Xan lo apunt en mi lista de pendientes y enseguida me hice con un ejemplar La historia es sorprendente y a las pocas p ginas ya hab a soltado algunas carcajadas y ten a una sonrisa casi permanente durante su lectura.Algunas de las valoraciones del libro critican l [...]

    22. So this is an ode to ignorance, misogyny, and rape apologism It also sucks as a novel because the characters are all carton cutouts without any shade of depth or complexity I couldn t care less about what happened to any of them, and the ending, which I think was supposed to elicit glee, left me cold 2015 EDIT Joke s on Dahl though because intelligence is inherited from the mother Misogynists are idiots.

    23. My Uncle Oswald is mad and outrageous and hilarious I d forgotten how funny Roald Dahl books were, not having read any since school days The story is utterly fantastic but I lapped it up like a cat does cream Plot involves the discovery of a Viagra like compound and features precursors to female Viagra, IVF, and sperm banks Marvellous story telling by Dahl through an unscrupulous but charming narrator Don t make the mistake of pegging Dahl as only a children s author It s time for all grown ups [...]

    24. Me ha decepcionado.Esperaba un libro de humor brit nico con alg n tinte er tico por lo que hab a o do de l y me he encontrado con que ni humor ni erotismo ni n de n Que hay un par de pasajes lejanamente graciosos pues s , pero un par en todo el libro menos mal que es corto.No lo recomiendo.
