This book was different to what I expected, but I liked it nonetheless. I thought it was going to be a novel, but instead it was a series of short stories, & they did not seem to have a sequence.
I don't usually enjoy reading war stories, but this book somehow made me interested in them, although none of the stories involved actual fighting. Although Roald was in the war for a while, he seemed to miss most of the action.
I also liked how at there stories about Roald's time in Africa before the war, because I particularly liked those. Africa seems amazing to me, so anything like I love.
The story about Home was quite sweet, everybody was so excited to hear from him. I think it was a really fitting end to the book.
Although I don't remember reading any Roald Dahl books when I was growing up (although I'm sure I must have), this book has made me realise why he is consider a legend, & it has made me want to read his other "biography", Boy. Maybe one day I'll get around to it.
Overall, I really liked this book, & would recommend it to others.
PS- I know the link at the top is to an audiobook, but I can't figure out how to add the paperback. Very frustrating.
