Henry Sugar is a Roald Dahl through and through. It was funny with outrageous characters but definitely an awesome book for the family. It may have a lot of pleasant exaggeration but the lessons it convey were certainly practical and heartwarming.
I actually found myself laughing and crying at the same time for Henry wasn’t your typical hero. He had been evil and clueless and yet, he never backed down from making a difference into the lives of those poor children.
I’ve learn a lot from Henry. On how he transformed from being immature to mature, from being self-centered to selfless, from being greedy to becoming the most generous person in the planet. And most of all, for reminding us that there’s goodness in each and everyone of us. We just only have to stop and look back. I heart this book!
What do you think about this sort-of-Robinhood story? Did it affect you as much as it did to me? Gosh, I was on the verge of tears when I was on the last chapters of the book.
