Boy is the tale of Roald Dahl (arguably one of the best authors ever) and his life as a school boy. Unlike most autobiographies it only contains exciting, funny stories about when he was a child and it has no boring details about his adult life. I loved it!

This book was ok. You could see where Roald Dahl gets some of his inspirations and ideas from as well as getting to know him a bit better. It wasn’t really the right sort of book for me but it was still very interesting!

This is one of Roald Dahl’s best books.
It is hard to believe that all these things actually happened but I know that they did.

Just like his story’s I loved reading about his life
I loved this book. Roald Dahl was very naughty sometimes! He became a brilliant author though. Hmmm…

This book is really good if you are a Roald Dahl fan because you can find out more about him and what he was like when he was a kid!
Boy is an excellent book and a somewhat nostalgic look back on Dahl’s own childhood. Funny in some parts, tragic in others, it’s very interesting and also appropriate for most ages. My only qualm with the book is the graphic description of corporal punishment, which might upset younger children.
