Review: The BFG

The BFG by Roald Dahl
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I registered a book at!
Book #36 for 2015

I don’t think this was nearly as imaginative as, say, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but it had some interesting ideas, like putting the dream bits together, and pointing out how giants (unlike humans) at least never kill each other. Dahl also got in some good digs about military leadership.

This was a cute story, if a little irritating at times. One reviewer here mentioned the Jar-Jar Binks effect of the BFG’s speech, and yeah, that got old pretty quickly. I really doubt I will be going to see the movie, but the book was a quick and reasonably entertaining read.
