After finishing the last page of this incredibly intruiging book, I immediately wanted to reread it to my little sister.
I picked The BFG up right after watching the newly released trailer and I’m so happy that I did. The trailer alone looked beautiful, so I ...more
Dahl could create the book that hooked me from the beginning and the ending of this book was so delightful, I felt very happy after I finished it. I like his writing style, it captivates ...more
1) Jar Jar Binks factor. The BFG speaks in his weird, uneducated pigdin that I frankly find kind of insulting. I'm sure children around the English speaking world are all thrilled by what Dahl has created-- but honestly, even for a word-monger like me, this is pretty ridi ...more
‘Human beans is the only animals that is killing their own kind. Even poisnowse snakes is never killing each other. Nor is the most fearsome creatures like tigers and rhinostossterisses. None of them is ever killing their own kind. Has you ever thought about that?’

When the giant grubs her with his big arms she’s certainly that he will eat her. She was wrong, not that giants don’t eat kids it’s just that this giant doesn’t eat kids or humans in general. Because this giant, this giant is the BFG (Big friendly giant). He ...more

Second, my son had to read The BFG for school. I think the story failed to fully capture his attention. So, he found himself in the situation in which tomorrow is the Reading Club at school and he didn't read it. As his reading speed is quite low for his 8 years, I read the book to ...more
In the beginning I really wasn't sure whether to give this 3 or 4 stars.
You see, at first I wasn't all that much into the story. Sure, it was nice but the way the BFG talked was a bit tiresome and the story also seemed to drag on a little making it only slightly better than the 2nd Charlie Bucket book and not as good as the one about the giant peach.
However, it might just have been my mood (for some reason not much could hold my interest which is why I read quite a lot ...more
Liz and I had agreed that we wouldn't read Matilda or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory out loud to the kids, so they would be able to experience it themselves. I would read The Witches, but I'm not sure if all of my kids could handle it yet.
So, it fell to The BFG. All three were in for most of the reading, though Poppy (being 3) left for large swaths. This was the longest book Gw ...more
Vi confesso un segreto. Questo è il mio primo Roald Dahl. Scandaloso, lo so: vero che non lo direte a nessuno? Conoscevo due storie di Dahl attraverso il filtro del cinema (Matilda sei mitica aka la mia infanzia & La fabbrica di cioccolato), ma non avevo mai letto niente di suo, pertanto era arrivat ...more
Please kill me now. No, I mean it. Seriously. Kill me now.
"I am brimfull of buzzburgers, This is a sizzling-hot muckfrumping country..."
Please, God. Oh please, please God, make it stop, make it stop, just make it...
"What a phizz-whizzing flushbunking seat. I is going to be as bug as a snug in a rug up here..."
NOOOO!! Sweet mother of God!!!!
Am I still alive? Is it over? Please tell me it's over.

The BFG is my second favourite Roald Dahl novel after Matilda. I watched the animated film as a child and now I realise it's a flawless adaptation. I adored fearless Sophie and the Big Friendly Giant, and their friendship, although that moment when The BFG first sees Sophie still gives me the chills! The BFG is a classic Roald Dahl story, full of dark humour – the other giants really are brut ...more
The BFG, famously written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake is a fictional fantasy story about a young girl who finds friendship in an unexpected place. It is a prime example of the way in which a simple story can engage the imagination of the younger reader. Visual and linguistic stimuli can be used to great effect, in this case to give the characters personalities that children can easily relate to. The use of language also effectively and inve ...more
But of course this is another Dahl classic. I guess I was charmed the most by The Queen's appearance in the story (Does The Queen know about this? Has she read "The BFG", did Wills and Harry read it as kids- like we all did- and think, "Hey, that's Gran!"? -All good questions.)
I also liked the part at the Castle when they had to make a really big table, chair, plate, ect... so the BFG could have breakfast with them, this was ...more
This is such a charming and cute little story about an orphan befriending a Big Friendly Giant who gives little children dreams and tries to stop 9 mean and ugly other giants who steal
"human beans" from their bed and eat them. It's a ridiculous story but I remember my elementary school teacher reading it aloud to us. Reading it as an adult, I can recall so much of the story, which speaks volumes to how much it resonated with me.
Roald Dahl is definitely part of my childhood and I cherish all of ...more
I read it because of the upcoming film and the trailer seemed really magical.
This book was very cute and in my opinion was a lot better than The Witches. It showed real emotions that a child might feel as fear, happiness and anger and sure, most of the events are really unlikely to happen, but they were fairy tale-ish enough to believe them.
And this story wasn't dark, because there weren't much of descriptions of the really scary things, which makes me feel like it would be a good ...more
Cu toate că îmi plac mult cărțile pentru copii, acestea nu reușesc mereu să mă captureze atât de mult pe cât mi-aș dori. Sunt extrem de fericită pentru că m-am gândit să lecturez o carte care stă la baza filmului The BFG (Big Friendly Giant)ce va apărea în câteva luni în cinematografe.
MUP (Marele Uriaș Prietenos)de Roald Dahla reapărut la Editura Arthurrecent și în colecția Cărțile Copilăriei. Este prima mea carte din această colecție și m-am îndrăgostit imediat de formatul micuț al c ...more
As with all Roald Dahl books, this book is full with little touches. Like the confession that all Giants are afraid of Jack. 'Jack is the onl ...more
Oh goodness. This is a fantasy, not at all scary imo, unless perhaps in that 'deliciously shivery' way some folks talk about. But if it does bother you or your child, steer clear of all Dahl.
"Dahl's Chickens," the author of Nicholas Nickleby, indeed.
I also particularly enjoyed the descriptions of dreams, like the one from (for?) the poor child whose creative writing is marked down for spelling and "puntulashon."
I like how, in my edition at least, t ...more
Che dire, una delle opere dell' autore che preferisco! Lo strano linguaggio con cui si esprime il gigante gentile é spassoso (sarei curiosa di leggerlo in lingua in futuro per vedere come erano originariamente i giochi di parole) e lo humor tipico dello scrittore, la dolcezza, i piccoli insegnamenti morali e le avventure che lui e Sofia af ...more
I guess, in a way, this was my first 'audio book' - or at least the first one I remember. Haha.
