Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
By: Roald Dahl
Review by: Anthony Kostal-Vazquez
Anthony your review on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is very good. There are a few areas that could improve it. The review seemed to be a bit short and could have included more content about the book. Further explanation of the plot would have improved it. In some parts you had long sentences which could have been broken up with commas. The comments that you added about Roald Dahl being one of your favorite authors was good, because I also enjoyed and remember reading Big Friendly Giant and James and the Giant Peach and some of his other books.
I think Roald Dahl did a great job writing this classic book which there has been many remakes and movies made. He did great with his story line and had a great climax and ending. Dahl’s messages like “don’t give up”and “good things can come from anywhere” are words worth thinking about. His writing is great and very descriptive. It would have taken a long time to come up with all the ideas and characters in the book. I also like that Charlie was the only person that went to the Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory that was not rich. All the other kids came from wealthy families and tended to be spoiled. Charlie received his chocolate bar for his birthday, which made me want Charlie to win the ticket for the tour. In the end I was glad that Charlie won the chocolate factory. It it was a great way to end off the book. Overall I would give this book 7 out of ten everlasting jawbreakers, and would recommend it to younger kids because it is an easy fun read and a great book.
