Gli Sporcelli

Se ci guardiamo intorno, possiamo renderci conto che non sono infrequenti le persone brutte, cattive o sporche; ma ci sono anche persone insieme cattive, sporche e brutte, come gli Sporcelli di questo nuovo libro di Roald Dahl. Sembrerebbe poco interessante occuparsi di loro, invece no. Gli Sporcelli hanno un'indole malvagia e fanno scherzi orribili: come quando la signora Sporcelli mise il suo occhio di vetro nel boccale di birra del marito, per fargli sapere che lo teneva sempre sotto controllo! Fortunatamente, gli Sporcelli non sono inesauribili nelle loro trovate e, alla fine, sia pure in modo del tutto involontario, rimangono vittime della loro stessa cattiveria. Di loro non rimarranno che due fagotti di stracci e quattro vecchie e sporche ciabatte.

Non si tratta del film di Ettore Scola sulle baraccopoli, con Nino Manfredi memorabile protagonista.

You might b a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you ave good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you can stil look lovely.This quote is one of the biggest reasons why I gave the book 5 stars.

hen one day the monkeys decide to push back… The Twits still holds up as one of my favourite Roald Dahl books.

It ’ s a similar setup to Fantastic Mr Fox except, whereas Boggis, Bunce and Bean are as wonderfully vicious as Mr and Mrs Twit, the monkeys and the Roly-Poly Bird are nowhere near as fully realize as Mr Fox, his family and friends.

The Twits was one of those.The Twits, although it has its moments, is one of my least favourite Dahl books, erhaps the least favourite.It 's easy to be too po-faced about humour in children 's books, and possibly my reaction is coloured by the knowledge that Dahl was not a articularly pleasant man and had some rather nasty opinions ...

This notion that someone who looks ugly to us is ugly inside too is sufficient reason on its own to cast this book aside.A fuller discussion can be found here: http: //mark -- ... Moving on.The rest of he book contain two unpleasant people being unpleasant to each other in not particularly humorous ways, followed by the addition of monkeys and a magical bird who then outwit them in a rather unconvincing manner.I really was not taken with he tory, but it as n't horrible.

You could b a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you ar good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you could stil look lovely. ” I do love this quote.

They are vile and small, silly little people that enjoy inflicting pain on others for no reason other than their own amusement.So in typical Roald Dahl fashion they get exactly what is oming to them.

Twits are ugly people who do horrible things to each other and others.

On Monday I was looking to publis review that just said that I 'm a twit.

Which is n't eally true, I 'm normally a only a slightly negative person, bordering on neutral and I do n't do things intentionally to try to cause other people harm.

Since I am reading all of Roald Dahl 's books again, I sai " why not, " and re-read this one.

The novel is about the grossest couple: Mr. and Mrs. Twit.
