    Do you know what the BFG stood for before his publisher told him he had to think of other words for the acronym Dahl wasn t joking either, not at all This story is of a man s interest in a prepubescent girl The first thing he does is enter her bedroom in the middle of the night, blow dust over her and kidnap her Taking her away from the orphanage she lives in to the land of the extremely unfriendly giants who, in the original draft forced the little girl to look at their giant clubs But the BFG s different, he s friendly view spoiler grooming hide spoiler

    We is in Dream Country, the BFG said This is where all dreams is beginning I love the BFG, as a child this was one of my favourite books and films There s just something captivating about the story, about how a mystical creature could appear in your bedroom in the middle of the night and take you to another world a exciting world And that s why Roald Dahl is such a successful children s author here he does exactly what the best books in the genre do He gives you a glimpse of the real world, of the standard realities of everyday, then underneath it all he reveals something spectacular he reveals fantasy Time and time again a child is whisked off to experience the adventure of a lifetime And when reading his books as a child of similar age, it s so easy to imagine yourself in the shoes of one of his protagonists Reading it as an adult, gives the book a slightly different flavour For starters, the hilarious nature of the language is blatant And it just feels funnier I was invested in this as a child, I cared about the characters and I was worried about what could happen Now it just seems all so ridiculous It was fun and entertaining, revisiting a book I read fifteen years ago.

    Don t gobblefunk around with words This entire book was a gobblefunk of words Snapperwhippers and babblement and crockadowndillies My inner grumpy adult came out about 1 2 way through the book just say what you mean Meanings is not important, said the BFG I cannot be right all the time Quite often I is left instead of right. Yes, yes you were, Mr BFG you went left the entire book.Sophie, a little human bean, gets up one night and spies from her window, a long spindly shape creeping around in the dark Much to her horror, a real life giant bounds up to her window and snatches her He whisks her away to giant country where she learns that every night, giants steal humans for their dinner and would eat her in a heartbeat.Luckily, Sophie is stolen by the Big Friendly Giant BFG who truly is good, and kind, despite his propensity for murdering the English language He would rather eat disgusting snozzcumbers than human beans and does his best to give children happy dreams Sophie insists that the other giants must be stopped and quickly hatches a plan with the BFG but the real question is, will the queen of England believe them English aside, this was a very cute story Sophie manages to be heroic without being precocious and the BFG s earnestness really cinched the plot Audiobook CommentsI listened to the enhanced audio which came equipped with sound effects and great characterizations If you have a hard time with the grammatical errors and deliberate misspellings, listening to the book makes it much better The 2018 Pop Sugar Reading Challenge A childhood classic you never readBlog Instagram Twitter

    Like many others, I remember the Roald Dahl books that I read, or had read to me, during my childhood fondly, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, and especially, Matilda Perhaps because I expected to have the same childhood reading adventure as I had with those books, I liked, but did not love, The BFG I think that Dahl s idea for the story is a creative one, but little things, such as the puns on the names of countries when the BFG describes the taste of human beans in those countries, or what I think were stereotypical remarks at the end of the novel For instance, when Dahl describes thankful world leaders bestowing gifts upon Sophie and the BFG for saving their people from man eating giants, he writes that The Rule of India sent the BFG a magnificent elephantThe King of Arabia sent them a camel each The Lama of Tibet sent them a llama each pp 204 5 However, to me, the worst line was when the Queen of England called the Sultan, next best thing to a Lord Mayor to ask him whether any of his subjects had mysteriously disappeared recently, and he responds, Every night unpleasant things are happening in BaghdadWe are chopping off people s heads like you are chopping parsley p 174 To be fair, the novel was copyrighted in 1982, and probably written before such things were widely considered inappropriate, and the book is widely engaging and creative Some would also say that these things are just jokes, that they were silliness written for the amusement of children In spite of the fact that the novel was written over two decades ago, I do not think that children should just absorb these lines, because they are most likely reading this book at the suggestion of an adult who is, in their mind, only supposed to give them good books The children would most likely read these lines and the stereotypes exoticizing non Western countries would persist.Another niggling doubt about the book was the resolution with the giants being imprisoned in a giant pit, doomed to eat disgusting snozzcumbers for the rest of their lives I think that Dahl was well intentioned in including the conversation between the BFG and Sophie about how humans make their own rules, and giants make their own rules and that the rules don t coincide When I got to this conversation, which included the the BFG basically telling Sophie that it was somewhat judgmental or short sighted of her to immediately think of the other giants as bad, because humans, unlike giants, kill their own kind all the time, I thought that the story was incredibly promising However, the story ended as they typically do, especially in children s literature, with the bad guys getting captured and the good guys living happily ever after without the moral ambiguity that Dahl touched upon in that one particular conversation between Sophie and the BFG I think that it might have been interesting if it was ever brought up that perhaps giants just eat humans just as humans eat bacon, sausage, and eggs, just as Sophie, the BFG, and the Queen did at the end of the story, and that perhaps the solution would be to respect all life, just as the BFG always had before uncharacteristically eating all that bacon and sausage at the end of the novel because he could hear the world s suffering Instead, as I mentioned, the story has a typical ending, and it is emotionally acceptable that the human eating giants are imprisoned with disgusting food for the rest of their lives and the Queen is humane for imprisoning them rather than killing them, to boot only because Dahl portrays the giants as disgusting throughout the entire novel Although the giants are portrayed as mean in the scene during which they toss around the BFG, emphasis is continuously on how the giants are half naked and disgusting in their appearance and smell Thus, emphasis is placed on their physical, rather than moral disgustingness, and to me, this is too reminiscent of the way that we vilify those who are different than us to justify our inhuman treatment of them In closing, although I enjoyed this book because of Dahl s creativity in coming up with a BFG and a dreamblower, etc, I don t think that it should hold such a coveted place in children s literature because it is somewhat outdated in its attitude, and there are many, many wonderful children s adventure novels out there with which to replace it I think that it would be a good novel to discuss with kids, but I don t think that parents teachers should just give it to kids an example of a good book because remember loving it during their childhood.P.S It s a little frustrating that people just think I m being oversensitive or that I m just another crazy person who wants everything to be PC I don t think that my reaction to this book was knee jerk for instance those people who refuse to read The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and or think it has no merit because of the use of the n word I ve said many good things about this book Heck, I even liked it I just pointed out that I don t think that it s perfect, my reasons for not thinking that it s perfect, and that there are plenty of great books out there for kids to read, so people should at least think a millisecond about what they recommend to kids about the content, child s maturity, and child s personal preferences instead of just pushing their own childhood favorites on them.

    There are a number of books that shape the youth of a child This was one of those books for me, alongside a handful of other Roald Dahl classics I remember reading it and having my father do so as well and getting lost in the story, which I did again today Young Sophie finds herself unable to sleep one night at the orphanage in which she resides Peering out the window, she sees a shadowy figure passing down the road, with an odd contraption he uses while poking his head into surround windows When Sophie spots this figure, a colossal giant, she is scooped up and taken off Kidnapped, of a sort, Sophie learns that this giant is even larger than he appeared in the shadows, but nowhere near as frightful That said, the odd giant patois he speaks leaves Sophie to wonder how calm and peaceful he might be It is in the Land of the Giants that Sophie learns a little about her captor, the Big Friendly Giant, BFG , and the other giant figures in the area, who have a penchant for human flesh Sophie also learns that the BFG possesses the ability to instil and inject dreams into the bedtime thoughts of any person, children in particular He shoots the magic dream dust into his special pipe and, POOF, off it goes and the individual is left to stream the thoughts through their subconscious Armed with this information, Sophie has an idea after learning from her new friend of the recent kidnapping number of children across Britain by these foul giants They will alert this highest authority to ensure these evil giants are captured and brought to justice Next stop, Buckingham Palace The BFG and Sophie work together to convince the Queen, through a dream sequence, that these events have taken place and that Sophie is the key to helping find the giants A trip into central London earns Sophie and the BFG an odd morning visit with Her Majesty, during which time all is revealed Can the Queen use the powers at her disposal to hunt down the kidnapping giants, or will everyone be left with a taste as bitter as snozzcumbers in their mouths Dahl takes readers on a wonderful journey through some interesting ideas to present one of the central stories known to many young Dahl readers Perfect for any age, but especially those with an open and vivid imagination.Dahl continues to marvel with all his ideas and variances on a similar theme Those who have read a great deal of the author will know he drops references of other books into the narrative, while always keeping things fairly unique and individualised Dahl offers up a new set of curious characters and some completely horrible villains, as well as the amusing power elite in our actual world With much gibberish found in many of Dahl s pieces, this one is chock full of offbeat words and giant patois, which will have the younger reader or listener giggling as the story continues There is little left out in this piece that warms the heart as well as gets the its pulse elevated Perhaps in my top five all time, this Dahl piece is exquisite in its presentation and delivery.Kudos, Mr Dahl for keeping me excited throughout this piece I could not have found a better way to spend a few hours and hope to introduce these to Neo before too long.Like hate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at

    REVIEW TO COMEThis is going to be a mini review Sometimes, on a very clear night, the BFG said, and if I is swiggling my ears in the right direction and here he swivelled his great ears upwards so they were facing the ceiling if I is swiggling them like this and the night is very clear, I is sometimes hearing faraway music coming from the stars in the sky I finally read this book after leaving it standing on my bookshelf for months because I still hadn t find the right time to read it until few days ago Few days ago I was in the mood for children books or middle grade books to help me to get over my book hangover and so I chose to read this book this book indeed quite helped me to get over my book hangover and the story was quite fun but I couldn t give this book than 3 stars because of the giant s languange The way he spoke always confused me like this It s a trogglehumper he shouted His voice was filled with fury and anguish Oh, save our solos he cried Deliver us from weasels The devil is dancing on my dibbler most of the time I was confused and I was like What but the story was pretty good but not really awesome in my opinion The story didn t make my heart pounding hard but the story wasn t bad either it was just okay I m sure I would ve liked this book if I had completely understood all BFG said but most of the time I didn t really understand what he said but I really loved the illustrations they were great and I loved them thank you for reading and liking this review I hope you all have a great day
