I just finished reading The BFG. Somehow I had gone near 30 years without this in my life.
I've loved Roald Dahl since I was a kid and have read many of his work, both those intended for children and those for adults but The BFG had alluded me.
I picked this up only yesterday and I can thank the new film adaptation for prompting me to finally read this.
I love a good children's book and this definitely fulfilled my want for a fun, engaging and relaxing read.
If for some reason you, like me, have not given this a try, I would recommend it. It has a sweet little orphan girl, a big friendly giant and larger than life adventures, peril and friendships. Gorgeous.
