Book of the week, Week #2 – Matilda by Roald Dahl

Our second book was Matilda.  I’d never read this book, nor have I seen the movie.  Emily has seen the movie but not read the book, so this was a new experience for both of us.

I liked the story, it was fast paced, and had its deep moments.  We will be watching the movie for a family film night soon.

Spoilers below:


Matilda is a very intelligent, sparkly little girl who is hated by her parents and eventually the head teacher at her school, The Trunchbull.  She gets even at her tormentors by playing pranks and even discovers a telekinetic power in her eyes that she uses to get at Trunchbull and even to do a huge solid for her favorite person in the world, Miss Honey.

A happy ending, and lots of fun times on the way, I enjoyed Matilda and can’t wait to see the movie for the first time.
