The story about Dahl inside out Sept. 18 2013

Well written lifestory about Dahl, a story in itself : amazing, sometimes sad and at times crossing all God-given boundaries.
Even more fascinating than I expected Jan. 20 2014

I grew up loving Roald Dahl and read basically everything he wrote for children. In college, I came across some of his adult fiction, and was somewhat surprised at how dark, sexual, and, well, adult it was. It planted a seed that interested me in the man himself which I didn't act on for a decade or so. I'd read good reviews of this biography, and finally got around for reading it, and it was a pure delight.

Another reviewer asks, "Was it worthwhile to have Dahl knocked off his pedestal? Yes." I agree wholeheartedly. Meeting -- and truly coming to know -- someone as an adult that one previously knew only as a child is certainly always eye-opening pedestal-removing, and that is certainly the case with Dahl, whose general nastiness seeps through throughout this book. But it's not only nastiness that comes out; the man really seemed to possess character attributes on the extremes of many spectrums.

The bottom line is that it was fascinating to learn about how complex Dahl was, and I come away with a deeper respect, admiration for, and interest in his work. Sturrock did a wonderful job with this book, and I highly endorse it.
