Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Our rating: **½

Charlie Bucket lives in a small house with Grandpa George, Grandma Georgina, Grandpa Joe, Grandma Josephine, and Mr. and Mrs. Bucket. Near their house is a big chocolate factory owned by Mr. Willy Wonka. The factory gates are always closed and nobody goes in or out of the building, yet the factory keeps making candy. Some people report mysterious little shadows inside. Then, Mr. Wonka hides five Golden Tickets in Wonka candy bars. The winners will tour the factory and go home with a life-time supply of candy. Charlie hopes to find a Golden Ticket, but as the family is very poor, it doesn’t seem likely.

There’s some stuff in this book I wish Roald Dahl had left out. Someone made Charlie and the Chocolate Factory into a movie, but I’ve heard it’s not very good.

  1. Actually, there are two movies of this book. One stars Gene Wilder as Mr. Wonka. The other one is more recent, with Johnny Depp as Mr. Wonka. I haven’t seen the newer one, but the older one is pretty good.

  2. I liked this book and the movie, about three years ago I started writing a book about what comes next (I never got further than the first page.) There is a book of that allready but it wasn’t very good.

  3. I rather enjoyed the second one.
