Review: Esio Trot by Roald Dahl
This was a quick and entertaining read. Though intended for children, this one is suitable for readers of all ages. Parts of the story are a little sexist (it seems a tad unbelievable that Mrs Silver could be quite so stupid,) but the whole thing is entertaining enough for the readers to look past its faults, especially when one considers that it was published in 1990. (Pleasingly, the film starring Dustin Hoffman and Judi Dench addresses this problem in a believable and amusing way.)
Ultimately, this one is a lot of fun and the humour far outweighs its faults.
