Even more remarkably, her classmates love her even though she's a super-nerd and the teacher's pet. But everything is not perfect in Matilda's world. For starters she has two of the most idiotic, self-centered pa Matilda is a little girl who is far too good to be true. At age five-and-a-half she's knocking off double-digit multiplic...

    This book was so great! I do enjoy the movie a bit more, but nevertheless this will always be a favorite of mine. I also really want to re-read some more Roald Dahl books now! ...

    Absolutely delightful. I really wish I'd read this when I was a kid - I would have related to and loved Matilda so much! I like that this is a book for children that doesn't cater to them - it treats them like intelligent beings. The plot was exciting, the characters fun, and the theme...

    While I personally love a book about a child prodigy (especially in the area of telekinesis), I had a different reaction to this book while rereading it as an adult. As a kid I thought Matilda was awesome, she was intelligent and independent. As an adult I see this as a book about gr...

    Does anyone really, truly love to learn as much as Matilda? Books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone. She is such an inspiration - and not only because of the freaky telekinetics. When I first read this book as a fifth grader, I absolutely connected w...

    Matilda is a lovely little book. It?s a book about standing up against bullies (no matter who the bullies are.) It?s also a book about learning to live with yourself, about being who you are despite the pressures those who are supposed to love you may exert on your personality. It?...

    5 stars from my little girl, Jess (age 7). SPOILERS! Comments while reading: "Matilda's parents are sooo stupid!" "What is a 'used car salesman'?" "How does putting sawdust and oil in a car's gearbox make it run smoother?" "The funniest parts are when Miss Trunchb...

    Book Review Roald Dahl gets 4+ out of 5 stars for his knock-it-out-of-the-park story, Matilda, from 1988. For some reason, I thought this was published before 1988, but I know I read it when I was 13, so... must have been right then. I thought it was great. Looking back years late...

    5 stars for another Roald Dahl masterpiece! He adds a way of life, in the form of magic, to his characters. Many have mentioned to me that they read several of his books when they were children. I guess I am just one of those people that missed out reading him when I was younger howeve...

    The best!!! Thanks to Samra!!!! She brought back great memories.... This was a favorite of my daughters when she was around 8 or 9 years old. Some books just make you smile --connect mothers and daughters reading together -- make us laugh - and remind us of simple pleasures. ...

    Last year I read a book by Enid Blyton that I had not read since childhood and I decided that from time to time I would continue to re-examine my childhood reads. So this time I chose a book by the very excellent Roald Dahl, Matilda. Matilda holds something for everyone. Obviousl...

    This might be one of the most perfect books for readers. It's about a reader who just wants to get her read on and bad people are trying to stop her. Instant character attachment! Fully involved in the "tumultuous" plot! "Let my reader goooo...." sing the readers! What a ...

    This book was MAGNIFICENT. I would have adored it as a kid, and even as an adult, I thought that the language was so enchanting, the storyline was heartwarming and gripping, and Matilda herself was such a strong and dynamic role model. I will definitely be investing in more Roald Dahl ...

    This book was MAGNIFICENT. I would have adored it as a kid, and even as an adult, I thought that the language was so enchanting, the storyline was heartwarming and gripping, and Matilda herself was such a strong and dynamic role model. I will definitely be investing in more Roald Dahl ...

    Matilda is basically a child prodigy; she is 4 years old and a voracious reader. That is amazing, I know! But, Matilda is not the only character. There are the tyrannical parents who do not encourage reading, do not have a shred of love or sympathy for Matilda and basically hate Matild...

    All the reading she had done had given her a view of life that they had never seen. This book was so heartwarming. And it just proved that Dahl was (and always will be) one of the best storytellers ever. The way he writes and how he draws you into the story will always amaze me. Thi...

    Book Review Roald Dahl gets 4+ out of 5 stars for his knock-it-out-of-the-park story, Matilda, from 1988. For some reason, I thought this was published before 1988, but I know I read it when I was 13, so... must have been right then. I thought it was great. Looking back years late...

    Matilda is such a famous book/movie that I think it doesn't need a synopsis. So, I'll get into the middle of things and admit that this is my first time reading the book (and my first time seeing the movie). *hides* The reason I read this in the first place is that Matilda i...

    All the reading she had done had given her a view of life that they had never seen. This book was so heartwarming. And it just proved that Dahl was (and always will be) one of the best storytellers ever. The way he writes and how he draws you into the story will always amaze me. Thi...

    Matilda, Roald Dahl Matilda is a book by British writer Roald Dahl. It was published in 1988. In a small Buckinghamshire village, Matilda Wormwood is a five-and-half-year-old girl of unusual precocity, but she is often ill-treated or neglected by her parents and older brother Michael....

    Last year I read a book by Enid Blyton that I had not read since childhood and I decided that from time to time I would continue to re-examine my childhood reads. So this time I chose a book by the very excellent Roald Dahl, Matilda. Matilda holds something for everyone. Obviousl...

    What a delight. ...

    What a lovely story this was... Matilda by Roland Dahl was the first book i had ever heard all the way threw by audiobook. My brother Clay who is obsessed with the study of birds carefully layed the book beside him just to get a good listen to the story. My sister who was tending to my...

    This might be one of the most perfect books for readers. It's about a reader who just wants to get her read on and bad people are trying to stop her. Instant character attachment! Fully involved in the "tumultuous" plot! "Let my reader goooo...." sing the readers! What a ...

    This book was MAGNIFICENT. I would have adored it as a kid, and even as an adult, I thought that the language was so enchanting, the storyline was heartwarming and gripping, and Matilda herself was such a strong and dynamic role model. I will definitely be investing in more Roald Dahl ...

    "You chose books and I chose looks." Matilda's mom kills me. I chose looks. I like to look smart too, though. In high school my bro's friends would pick on me for owning so many books. I pretended to be dumb like Matilda and said I hadn't read any of the books and they were trophies to...

    Matilda is basically a child prodigy; she is 4 years old and a voracious reader. That is amazing, I know! But, Matilda is not the only character. There are the tyrannical parents who do not encourage reading, do not have a shred of love or sympathy for Matilda and basically hate Matild...

    This book was so great! I do enjoy the movie a bit more, but nevertheless this will always be a favorite of mine. I also really want to re-read some more Roald Dahl books now! ...

    Absolutely delightful. I really wish I'd read this when I was a kid - I would have related to and loved Matilda so much! I like that this is a book for children that doesn't cater to them - it treats them like intelligent beings. The plot was exciting, the characters fun, and the theme...

    While I personally love a book about a child prodigy (especially in the area of telekinesis), I had a different reaction to this book while rereading it as an adult. As a kid I thought Matilda was awesome, she was intelligent and independent. As an adult I see this as a book about gr...

    Matilda is a lovely little book. It?s a book about standing up against bullies (no matter who the bullies are.) It?s also a book about learning to live with yourself, about being who you are despite the pressures those who are supposed to love you may exert on your personality. It?...

    5 stars from my little girl, Jess (age 7). SPOILERS! Comments while reading: "Matilda's parents are sooo stupid!" "What is a 'used car salesman'?" "How does putting sawdust and oil in a car's gearbox make it run smoother?" "The funniest parts are when Miss Trunchb...

    Book Review Roald Dahl gets 4+ out of 5 stars for his knock-it-out-of-the-park story, Matilda, from 1988. For some reason, I thought this was published before 1988, but I know I read it when I was 13, so... must have been right then. I thought it was great. Looking back years late...

    REVIEW TO COME TODAY. The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived exciting lives. this book tells us about a brilliant little girl named Matilda Wormwood and she loves reading books. But her parents seem don't really proud of her and...

    As much as I love Roald Dahl's story (and this audiobook, read by Kate Winslet, was so fun), the movie of Matilda will always be my favourite. Perfection. ...

    Matilda is a lovable protagonist, revered for her mischievous nature and easily sympathized with because of her abusive parents who don't recognize how extraordinary she is. Admittedly, she's a vengeful girl, but that never subtracts from her likability. Roald Dahl crafted unapolog...

    La verdad es que siempre tuve curiosidad por leer este libro ya que siempre amé la peli, pero honestamente esperaba otra cosas y resultó no ser mi favorito de Roald Dahl, tiene obras mucho más ingeniosas y entretenidas. Lo dejo en un me gustó. Sin embargo, le voy a dar cinco ...

    Matilda is a little girl who is far too good to be true. At the age of five-and-a-half she's knocking off double digit multiplication problems and blitz-reading Dickens. Matilda Wormwood is often I'll-treated by her parents and older brother, Michael. She retaliates by playing prank...

    Matilda is such a famous book/movie that I think it doesn't need a synopsis. So, I'll get into the middle of things and admit that this is my first time reading the book (and my first time seeing the movie). *hides* The reason I read this in the first place is that Matilda i...

    All the reading she had done had given her a view of life that they had never seen. This book was so heartwarming. And it just proved that Dahl was (and always will be) one of the best storytellers ever. The way he writes and how he draws you into the story will always amaze me. Thi...

    Reading Matilda was fun and an easy read. I have to be honest and say I do definitely prefer the movie. I've watched it a few times and Matilda in the movie is a little star. My book is going to two small girls who are dying to read it so no regrets at all. ...
