Read full description of the books The Twits. Roald Dahl:Twits are ugly people who do horrible things to each other and others. They are not nice, and they are negative people who have been negative so long that the negativity has made them ugly.
On Monday I was going to write a review that just said that I'm a twit. Which isn't really true, I'm generally a only a slightly negative person, bordering on neutral and I don't do things intentionally to try to cause other people harm. Sometimes I do turn incredibly negative though and then I come out swinging at anyone close to me. I get angry, feel incredibly destructive, make life hell for anyone nearby and then it passes and I just get really depressed for awhile. I hope, even when I'm in my shit mood, that I don't do anything to hurt anyone else in anyway, so I guess I'm not quite a Twit.
Instead, I guess I unintentionally wait to wade through the bullshit of my depression, and do something then to fuck everything up, or at least start a chain reaction. Yay me, huh?
Don't vote for this. I meant to say, Vote for This. Who cares if it's not a review. I generally don't write reviews, I write opinion pieces and rants peppered with confessionals from my life. Sometimes I write very critical things, and I guess they might be considered a review, but really they are just throwing venom and spite at a target that won't swing back. Very few of the many words I've used on this site are anything that would really give someone a sense if they want to read a book or not.
That said, the book is amusing. You might like it.
Read information about the authorRoald Dahl was a British novelist, short story writer and screenwriter of Norwegian descent, who rose to prominence in the 1940's with works for both children and adults, and became one of the world's bestselling authors.
Dahl's first published work, inspired by a meeting with C. S. Forester, was Shot Down Over Libya. Today the story is published as A Piece of Cake. The story, about his wartime adventures, was bought by the Saturday Evening Post for $900, and propelled him into a career as a writer. Its title was inspired by a highly inaccurate and sensationalized article about the crash that blinded him, which claimed he had been shot down instead of simply having to land because of low fuel.
His first children's book was The Gremlins, about mischievous little creatures that were part of RAF folklore. The book was commissioned by Walt Disney for a film that was never made, and published in 1943. Dahl went on to create some of the best-loved children's stories of the 20th century, such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda and James and the Giant Peach.
He also had a successful parallel career as the writer of macabre adult short stories, usually with a dark sense of humour and a surprise ending. Many were originally written for American magazines such as Ladies Home Journal, Harper's, Playboy and The New Yorker, then subsequently collected by Dahl into anthologies, gaining world-wide acclaim. Dahl wrote more than 60 short stories and they have appeared in numerous collections, some only being published in book form after his death. His stories also brought him three Edgar Awards: in 1954, for the collection Someone Like You; in 1959, for the story "The Landlady"; and in 1980, for the episode of Tales of the Unexpected based on "Skin".
