Anybody read his books?

He's a fantastic writer.. I know may of his books are intended for children, but they're so good..

A few of his choice works include:

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Matilda
The BFG
James and the Giant Peach
Going Solo
Esio Trot

and many more.

I haven't read any of his books in a long time, I'm really starting to miss them.

I heard he was quite the fucked up individual.

His books, though, have an element of absurdity I quite enjoy.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

I recently read his book Skin, It's just a collection of a few short stories but I have to say it was really good. Imo, his short stories are better than most of his novels.

His Kids books are brilliant, but he also wrote several books for adults. Check out My Uncle Oswald (A story about a sex. lots of very funny roald dahl-ish sex.) Also, he wrote a ton of stories for/about the RAF in WW2.

I'm surprised you like him.

Wasn't he an anti-semite?

I like what I've read. And Wes Anderson is doing an adaptation on his book, Fantastic Mr. Fox

I always got scared when I was little when I would read James and the Giant Peach.

I hated Lady Bugs, and when I'd find two grasshoppers at recess I would make them do battle. I feared that they would grow and kill me one day.

Could be wrong though.
