Charlie and The Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a book by the amazing storyteller Roald Dahl and was published in 1964. Roald Dahl knows how to tell you a story and he does it very very well every time. 
The way Roald Dahl describes everything in the Willy Wonka chocolate factory is incredible. You just feel like you are in there and you want to touch everything. 
I have read Roald Dahl books before but this one I hadn't read and I knew the story only from the movie, which helped me visualize what I was reading. 

Obviously the Oompa Loompas are my favourite. Charlie and his Grandpa were perfect. They were humble and sweet, and Willy Wonka himself was lovely and I liked how sarcastic he was. 

Rating: 5 Stars

Synopsis from Goodreads
One miraculous moment changes Charlie Bucket's life forever.
A boy who only gets to eat cabbage soup for breakfast, lunch and dinner finds a Golden Ticket that will take him into Willy Wonka's magical chocolate factory.
Joining him on the tour are four horrible blighters:
Augustus Gloop - a great big greedy nincompoop, Veruca Salt - a spoiled brat, Violet Beauregarde - a repulsive little gum-chewer and Mike Teavee - a TV addict.
With a chocolate river, crafty squirrels and mysterious Oompa Loompas, Mr Wonka's chocolate factory is the strangest, most magnificent place Charlie has ever seen.
What other surprises are in store for the lucky ticket winners?

See you in the next post and don't forget to keep reading!!!
