Deb E's review of Roald Dahl, Quentin Blake, The Twits


“The story is very cleverly executed. The house had no...”

Written on: 16/10/2008 by Deb E (1 review written)

Good Points
Great for both girls & boys of all ages, including their parents.

Bad Points
Not enough horrid tricks played out! We could have listened to more revolting tricks all day.

General Comments
The story is very cleverly executed. The house had no windows, therefore the Twits, the two revolting main charactors couldn't see what was happening outside & under their very (ugly) noses. There are some complicated words used within the book, but this did not distract from the essence of the story. Also you could say that Dahl portrayed bearded & ugly people as being nasty so it is mindful to not take his politically incorrect stance as gospel, & appreciate that it is meant for children to engage with, not to be taken literally (so to speak)! I think this book is not aimed at any particular gender or age & should be marveled as the master piece it is.
The illustrations portray the image of the story brilliantly & sum up the charactors perfectly, diagrams and all. Loved it when I was a young girl, & still love it today as a grown woman & so do all 3 of my children. A timeless tale of funny odd balls doing funny, yet revolting things to each other & others in a way that no body could take offence to, unless you are a character in the book!
