«Dahl possiede il rarissimo dono di far scomparire tutto il mondo che sta intorno al lettore».Goffredo Fofi«Maestro della short story, a lungo considerato solo uno scrittore per ragazzi... iperbolico, beffardo, divertente, la sua massima virtù è dinamica, è la velocità. Ci si accorge di come e quanto la sua consistenza sia un meccanismo perfetto, esplosivo al pari di una bomba». Franco Cordelli, Corriere della Sera«Roald Dahl parteggia sempre per i bambini e ha creato tanti piccoli personaggi con speciali poteri che si vendicano delle prepotenze degli adulti o li puniscono per le loro cattive azioni». Donatella ZiliottoMatilde ha imparato a leggere a tre anni, e a quattro ha già divorato tutti i libri della biblioteca pubblica. Quando perciò comincia la prima elementare si annoia talmente che l’intelligenza le esce dagli occhi. Gli occhi di Matilde diventano incandescenti e da essi si sprigiona un potere magico che l’avrà vinta sulla perfida direttrice Spezzindue, la quale per punire gli alunni si diverte a rinchiuderli nello Strozzatoio, o li usa per allenarsi al lancio del martello olimpionico, facendo roteare le bambine per le trecce.

Absolutely delightful. I really wish I'd read this when I was a kid - I would have related to and loved Matilda so much! I like that this is a book for children that doesn't cater to them - it treats them like intelligent beings. The plot was exciting, the characters fun, and the themes interesting. Leggi tutto
While I personally love a book about a child prodigy (especially in the area of telekinesis), I had a different reaction to this book while rereading it as an adult. As a kid I thought Matilda was awesome, she was intelligent and independent. As an adult I see this as a book about gross neglect and
Matilda, Roald Dahl Matilda is a book by British writer Roald Dahl. It was published in 1988. In a small Buckinghamshire village, Matilda Wormwood is a five-and-half-year-old girl of unusual precocity, but she is often ill-treated or neglected by her parents and older brother Michael. In retaliation, Leggi tutto
Does anyone really, truly love to learn as much as Matilda? Books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone. She is such an inspiration - and not only because of the freaky telekinetics. When I first read this book as a fifth grader, I absolutely connected with her. FINALLY
Matilda is a lovely little book. It’s a book about standing up against bullies (no matter who the bullies are.) It’s also a book about learning to live with yourself, about being who you are despite the pressures those who are supposed to love you may exert on your personality. It’s a book written f Leggi tutto

5 stars from my little girl, Jess (age 7). SPOILERS! Comments while reading: "Matilda's parents are sooo stupid!" "What is a 'used car salesman'?" "How does putting sawdust and oil in a car's gearbox make it run smoother?" "The funniest parts are when Miss Trunchbull hurled the kids out of the classroom, Leggi tutto
5 stars for another Roald Dahl masterpiece! He adds a way of life, in the form of magic, to his characters. Many have mentioned to me that they read several of his books when they were children. I guess I am just one of those people that missed out reading him when I was younger however, I am extrem Leggi tutto
Book Review Roald Dahl gets 4+ out of 5 stars for his knock-it-out-of-the-park story, Matilda , from 1988. For some reason, I thought this was published before 1988, but I know I read it when I was 13, so... must have been right then. I thought it was great. Looking back years later, and s
I have short-changed this story by giving it 3 stars for so long. I ran out and bought this book for my little nieces for Christmas. No way they will grow up without Matilda in their life. She's brilliant! What a love for books and knowledge! Such a gentle, empathetic soul! I can't wait to share her Leggi tutto
