Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Book Review   by:dsb188     Original Author: Roald Dahl
ª
 
In a world so full of poverty and sadness a young boy manages to make the best out of a bad sistuation. Coming from very poor backgrouds Charlie is able to win a sweepstakes and gain access to an amazing factory. There he realizes his true identity and take a strong look into a world of pure imagination and beauty. Charlie brings his grandfather along to his tour to the factory and they are both able to step outside of there regular norm of things and view some unique and new inventions.
Charlie wins a trip to this amazing Chocolate Facotory by opening up a chocolate bar and finding a golden ticket. The ticket awards him a glimpse into the wonderful world of Mr.Willy Wonka. Charlie is overjoyed by the news and is very excited about finally seeing something new. Charlie is stopped by a very mysterious man who offers him alot of money if he will tell the secrets of the factory when he gets there. Charlie is clever and realizes that it isn't the right thing to do. In the future this judgement leads him to much success.
Along the ride some other rotten children seem to join the bunch. A snob, a hyper kid, a chubby kid, a loud mouth and than just sweet old Charlie. Throughout the entire book each child is weeded out of the bunch based upon their behavior and actions. No one wants a kid who is too bossy, or too arrogant and Wonka manages to weed out all of the children who dont truly aren't honest.Through much debate and decision Charlie is choosen to live in the factory with his family.
This book comments on alot of what occurs today in the world. People oftentimes have to test peoples loyalty and honesty in order to see how true they actually are. This is an excellent book that teaches children and even adults the importance of being honest and sticking to ones word. Int he real world one may not be sucked into a huge vat of chocolate, but the outcome isn't always good for people who insist on lying and not being loyal.
