Boy: Tales of Childhood and Going solo by Roald Dahl

“Boy” and “Going solo” are autobiographies of  Author Roald Dahl.

But unlike other autobiographies these are really fun reading.

If your are Roald Dahl fan or want to be go grab this stories combined in single volume from the library.

About the book:

Boy : Tales of childhood

Boy by Roald Dahl is a autobiography describing the author’s life since birth till school. He explains his unpleasant experience in three schools.He starts off with a childhood story how him and his friends sneaked a rat into the candy jar of a popular store amongst children. The store owner, a witch-like lady was furious and caused trouble at school by forcing the teacher to give them a spanking. Yes, a spanking. Dahl’s mother decide that was it was too much for just a kiddy joke and decide to send him to boarding school. His tale starts off from here.

Going Solo

This is the sequel to Boy: Tales of a Childhood and pics up where we left off, when Roald is 18 and starts new adventures as an adult. Going Solo documents Dahl’s time in Africa, and as a RAF pilot during World War II. His stories are fascinating and highly entertaining. Dahl has a knack for making simply awful situations seem quite humorous at times. Numerous examples of the ineptitude of the British army during WW II are documented here, and they are appalling. However, Dahl emerges alive and victorious, and ready to tackle the next great adventure.

Faces in water by Ranjit lal

What do you do when you discover an unspeakable truth about your parents?

The Diwanchand family boasted of having only sons, no daughters. The water from a magical well in their farmhouse was the reason behind this ‘good fortune’, they said. One day, fifteen-year-old Gurmi sets out to look for the well and what he sees changes everyone’s world forever. The faces of three girls look up at him from the water, and draw him into a world of fun, games and cyber magic -and Gurmi has to face up to an unnerving truth as murky as the surreal well.

What terrible crimes have been committed behind the walls of the rambling Diwanchand family home? Will Gurmi and the ghost-girls be able to avenge the evil that has taken place and prevent yet another unspeakable atrocity from occurring?

Funny, yet sensitive and immensely powerful, Faces in the Water is the story of lives lost to appease our society’s insatiable hunger for male children, and the price families pay for its sake.
