The Witches by Roald Dahl
Describe it in 25 words or less. A story about a boy and his Grandmother who go to a hotel full of witches and try to defeat them all.
Genre: Children’s Fiction
Who was your favorite character and why? Grandmamma because she was smart and came from a place of love. Also, without her, this story wouldn’t exist.
Who was your least favorite character and why? The Grand High Witch because she was evil and hated children.
Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while? It was a extremely intriguing and I could barley put it down!
Was it plot or character driven? A bit of both.
What did you think of the ending? Nice, although I wish there was a sequel.
What was the moral of the story? No matter who you are, you can still do amazing things.
Did you learn anything? How to train a mouse to tight rope and also how fast a mouse’s heart beats (which is 500 times a minute!)
Favorite quote: “It doesn’t matter who you are or what you look like so long as somebody loves you.” –The Boy
Have you read other books by the same author? I love Roald Dahl’s writing. It is simplistic enough that you can really get immersed in the story. I’ve also reviewed Roald Dahl’s Matilda here.
How does the book compare to the film? I have seen “The Witches,” and it is surprisingly very similar to the book.
Who would you recommend it to? Those who like an interesting and different story with heartwarming characters, Roald Dahl fans, or those who have seen the film “The Witches”.
