review å E-book, or Kindle E-pub ´ Roald Dahl

Matilda is a little girl who is far too good to be true At age five and a half she's knocking off double digit multiplication problems and blitz reading Dickens Even remarkably her classmates love her even though she's a super nerd and the teacher's pet But everything is not perfect in Matilda's world For starters she has two of the most idiotic self centered parents who ever lived Then there's the large bus. 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 a commentary on absentee parenting and its role in our children s education I come from a county where the dropout rate is high and everyone wants to blame the teachers but no one identifies the real problem of parents or caregivers not taking an active role in their child s schooling To many of them school is free babysitting and nothing They take no interest in helping their children succeed and tell the educators that it is their job to teach the children disavowing any responsibility of their own Once in a while you have a special case like Matilda who decides to work on her education on her own despite the indifference of her parents But often these children turn into cases for Child Protective Services or the euivalent due to the negligence occurring in their home livesMatilda gets her happy ending but most children in similar situations do not Reread this as an adult with the above perspective and you will find a chilling tale of a child trying to create something better for herself than the toxic circumstances she was born into

    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

    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 for readers and one that establishes so firmly why reading is so damn important in a world that is becoming increasingly detached from the things
