Roald Dahlīs book Matilda tells about a little genius girl, whose parents doesnīt care her skills. The book has published in year 1988. Matilda likes to read, and she is very quick to learn it without teaching. I donīt like her parents because they try to prevent Matilda to read. if somebody wants to do something, why she canīt do that? I donīt understand.. But Matilda doesnīt care, because reading and learning is her passion. I love Matilda because she have own opinions and she is a little bit rebel.
The book is very funny and it’s full of humor. Reading is quite easy, because there is easy words and it’s funny to read that book. When you read the book, you can’t be without laughing. If you feel sad, take Matilda and start to read! It makes you feeling better, I can promise! I recommend the book for everybody, especially for childish people.
How long it takes you have read the book? Not long, because the book is not very long and when you start reading, you can’t stop, without some very important reason.
now my views to other people for this book
Book was so fun . I enjoyed to read it. And there is no moment that I could be without laughing. I think it fits both, adults and children. Book tells abnormal parentīs relation with their child. I think that any normal parents couldnīt leave their child with her teacher and move their self to an another country. the book is very joking itīs in the same time very mindful. Today many parents concentrate on their career and children come next. In the book father concentrates to sell stolen cars and mother attend her looks. Book tells good how materialistic world is nowadays.
Even if the bookīs mission is amuse people. Itīs getting to think how unfair world is sometimes. All in all the book could scare its reader for hilarity. I absolutely recommend the book for everybody.

I haven't read the book Matilda but I did see the movie. Even though I cant say anything about the book I can tell you something about the movie. Matilda learns to read all by herself her family is careless and they care too much about TV. Everyday Matilda would go to the library and read. Eventually at a short age she went from picture books to challenging chapter books. In her room she would be surrounded by books. When she goes to school she meets her teacher Mrs. Honey and the horrible principle ( I don't remember the name). The principle is a very cruel woman who tortures children and puts them in this horrible place called the "chokee". And not only does Matilda meet her school and her amazing reading skills but she also meets something else. To find out what that is i suggest that you either see the movie or read the book ( I would go with both but, from my opinion you should start on the book.

I ordered (Matilda) only to complete my Roald Dahl book collection. My mom than ORDERED me to read it! (I) didn't want to read it, but wanted it only for my.....collection of Quentin Blake illustrated books. So I read it, and boy to this day I am glad that my mom told me to read it! It went straight to my heart about a girl who learned to read at around age 3! I learned to TALK at age 3.....was walking at 1 1/2 years old! It is a good book that children that adore books and others who love books and are maybe even smart and....just like reading, are outa pick up this book today!
