Charlie And The Chocolate Factory - by Roald Dahl  

Charlie And The Chocolate Factory - by Roald Dahl
Charlie And The Chocolate Factory is an extraordinary fantasy novel by children's writer, Roald Dahl and had also been made into a motion movie.

This is an awesome novel where Dahl has outshone any fantasy writer. The story is about a poor boy Charlie, who lives in extreme poverty. His favorite birthday gift is the famous Wonka chocolates and he cherishes the single chocolate he receives every year. He eats a bit a day so that it lasts at least for a month.

For the first time in a decade, Willy Wonka, the solitary and eccentric chocolate maker, is opening the doors of his unique chocolate factory for five members of the public. The lucky five who find a Golden Ticket in their Wonka chocolate bars will receive a private tour of the factory, given by Mr. Wonka himself.

For young Charlie Bucket, this a dream come true when one cold winter night, he retrieves a dollar from the ground and buys two Wonka's Whipple-Scrumptious Fudgemallow, by sheer luck or destiny. As Charlie unwraps the second chocolate bar, he sees the glimmer of gold just under the wrapper! Yes, he was one of the chosen lucky one!

The very next day, Charlie, along with his unworthy fellow winners Mike Teavee, Veruca Salt, Violet Beauregarde, and Augustus Gloop, steps through the factory gates to discover whether or not the rumors surrounding the Chocolate Factory and its mysterious owner are true. What they find is that the local gossip can't compare to the extraordinary truth, and for Charlie, life will never be the same again…

This was an unforgettable masterpiece from the legendary Roald Dahl, for me and it never fails to delight, thrill, and utterly captivate the reader. A full on roller coaster ride for every fantasy lover!
