by Roald Dahl
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars
We showed the movie at work so I had to reread the book. I knew when I saw the movie a few years ago that they had changed things and expanded the plot a lot but I forgot exactly what other than the whole subplot with the nephew. The actual story is pretty simple and short. The movie is fine, but has a ton more backstory that was not in the original book. The movie is very well done, but then, I’m a sucker for George Clooney, what can I say. I assume everyone’s read the book, but if you haven’t, I recommend it!
