Scattered Storyline

There is two stories told one inside the other with no genuine link. One is a space story and the other a desire for youth. Terminology used wiuld be difficult for the young to read.

Great Book!

Awesome book! I recommend for all ages above 7. Roald Dahl at his best! Read Charlie and the chocolate factory first.

Not Dahl's best work

The story is very disjointed and even more nonsensical than anything else he's ever done. We listened as a family and the adults didn't like it but the kids (11, 8, 5) thought it was funny. Our 11 year old did think it was a bit silly and didn't make sense.
