The Best Of Roald Dahl

Author: Roald Dahl.
This book is a collection of 25 short stories, few of Dahl’s finest works! I personally am a huge fan of Roald Dahl, the dark humor and twisted nature of this book makes for an extremely gripping read. The  eeriness lingers in the atmosphere in all these stories, but the suspense remains sometimes till the very last paragraph. The inquisitiveness and anxiety about the (obviously) dark ending keeps you hooked until the very end, and most of the times the rest of the story is left to the reader’s imagination, which adds to the twisted, unique beauty of these stories, and leaves you wanting more and more and more. The ending is always shocking. Dahl’s style is humorous, classy, witty, enigmatic.  Be it the young man willing to put at stake his little finger for a Cadillac, or the man who lived even after having died, the storyline is always a class apart. This isn’t a book I’d suggest for children, but for you almost-adults and adults, it is a must read, especially if you’re of a twisted kind too! *wink* Highly recommend, it is a must have, and certainly perfect for those who enjoy sleepless nights.
