Matilda | Roald Dahl
Phizzwhizzing new cover look and branding for the World's NUMBER ONE Storyteller!Matilda Wormwood's father thinks she's a little scab. Matilda's mother spends all afternoon playing bingo. And Matilda's headmistress Miss Trunchbull? Well, she's the worst of all. She is a big bully, who thinks all her pupils are rotten and locks them in the dreaded Chokey. As for Matilda, she's an extraordinary little girl with a magical mind - and now she's had enough. So all these grown-ups had better watch out, because Matilda is going to teach them a lesson they'll never forget."A true genius . . . Roald Dahl is my hero" - David Walliams Now you can listen to MATILDA and other Roald Dahl audiobooks read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - plus there are added squelchy soundeffects from Pinewood Studios! And look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting TWIT OR MISS! and HOUSE OF TWITS inspired by the revolting Twits.

I had no expectations going into this one, but it was rough...child neglect and abuse. It‘s odd that I‘m reading The Institute at the same time...there are some similar themes. Thank God it ends well, but Roald Dahl is a bit scary to me.Lol His horrible adults are truly frightening (headmistress). The best part is towards the end...so hold on!!

Current library books:
A reread of Matilda, a childhood favourite of mine, reading this time to my kid; it didn‘t live up to my memories of it.
Scattered Minds is the only one of Gabor Maté‘s books I‘ve not yet read, anticipating this to be eye opening.
Rereading Harry Potter with my son, so far it‘s every bit as magical as I remember.
Some more Noam Chomsky to further my understanding of the US empire and its manifold crimes, How the World Works.

Matilda was published when I was 16 and past the Roald Dahl stage. I am so glad I picked it up. I have many friends who are younger than I am who rave about Matilda and now I know why.

Book #92: I rather enjoyed Matilda a lot (my daughter and and I both did). I found this to the best of the Dahl books that were on my list. The story was nice and linear, as opposed to several of his other books which seemed to be more disjointed. The characters were also some of his best and actually made you care about what happened to some of them...

Little matilda is saddled with a nasty father, a fairly terrible mother and an indifferent brother.
She just wants to read. Why read when we've got the telly! Wonder her disgusting parents.

This is a book about standing up against bullies no matter who the bullies are.

I have very sweaty hands, so sometimes when I read a hardcover without its jacket, the words on the bookspine got rubbed off afterwards. Last night I‘ve decided to hand sew (hate using sewing machine) my first #bookcover to protect the book & listen to this fun lovely #audiobook while doing so! This book never gets old! Not the best needle work but at least I can read my hardcover with ease☺️

I think children‘s books are #underrated
NOT the people on Litsy of course!
If I am reading a children‘s book in public I usually have someone ask why I‘m reading it. There were many great children‘s books I didn‘t get the chance to read as a child so why not pick them up now!? 🤷🏻‍♀️💁🏻‍♀️ I know they may not be for every adult but I actually enjoy them! #30JuneBooks

They also show her reading Tom Sawyer, Charles Dickens, The Hobbit, Shakespeares Sonnets, Oliver Twist, The Catcher and the Rye & Sherlock Holmes. #BookToMovie #MayMadness

vivastory The most recent episode of Last Week Tonight With John Oliver is about Vince McMahon's poor treatment of his wrestlers. It's on YouTube, I think it's worth watching. 8mo
IamIamIam @vivastory I'll check it out. I have no doubt that all wrestlers are poorly treated. There's no way they can be properly compensated for what they put themselves through! 8mo

vivastory It's pretty appalling, McMahon doesn't have to do very much acting for his role as the WWE villain, he's pretty much just playing himself. 8mo
LibrarianRyan I agree with @vivastory it‘s must watch. I saw that new movie about the wrestler Paige, and even they talk about the hurts, or people who are battered for entertainment. I am not a wrestling fan but I liked both of those. 8mo
IamIamIam @LibrarianRyan @vivastory Thanks guys! I'll be sure to check them out! Years ago, we saw the documentary in the theaters about the conditions of wrestlers from the 80s and that was a tough one. I also watched a doc about the GLOW wrestlers, the original ladies, and they were really treated terribly. It's hard to know that these athletes are treated so poorly. 8mo
LibrarianRyan It very much is. While I love the Glow Netflix show I wish they would have gotten more into the background and treatment of the crew. 8mo
